Norske maritime utstyrsleverandører 2018

Rapporten presenterer økonomiske nøkkeltall for norske maritime utstyrsleverandører i perioden 2004-2017, samt prognoser for 2018 og 2019. Undersøkelsen viser at det forventes økt aktivitet blant utstyrsleverandørene de neste årene. Omsetningen vokser i 2018 for første gang på fire år, mens sysselsettingen er stabil sammenlignet med 2017. Sterk vekst i nye markedssegmenter, spesielt i leveranser til ekspedisjonscruise og fiskeskip, driver den positive utviklingen i 2018. Veksttakten forventes å øke i 2019, med en estimert omsetningsvekst på 13 prosent og tre prosent økning i antall sysselsatte. Analysen er skrevet på oppdrag fra Maritim Bransjeforening i Norsk Industri.

Government support to startups and supply of new equity capital

This paper presents an empirical analysis of the links between public support to startups in Norway and subsequent supply of new private equity capital to these firms. We apply a unique database covering all startups in Norway during the period 2006 and 2010 and have linked the database to a recently established public policy database for Norway covering all firm level state support schemes during the same period. We find that public support to startups is followed by significantly higher growth in new equity capital in the years following treatment. This result is robust for alternative econometric specifications, yet it is not robust for choice of startup characteristics. Startups that already have obtained growth do not display any stronger growth in supply of new equity capital post treatment. This finding may indicate that firms that have obtained growth already have sufficient access to private capital. Their financial track record is a clear signal of quality to the market, hence a signal through a public support scheme does not affect private willingness to invest. Other startups to experience significantly stronger growth in access to new equity capital if they have been awarded government support. One may argue that this result is consistent with the idea that participating in a public sector support scheme is viewed as a sign of quality among private investors. Our small-scale early stage investor survey provides strong support for this hypothesis.

Leading Maritime Nations of the World 2018

Menon Economics and DNV GL are proud to present the “Leading Maritime Nations of the World” 2018. The new report follows up the 2017 report by Menon and DNV GL on the Leading Maritime Capitals of the World 2017, but shifts the focus to an extensive review of the maritime industry at the national level.
The ranking digs deep into a broad range of indicators on maritime capabilities and performance, and the research provides a holistic perspective of countries that influence the shape of the future international maritime activities in the world to stakeholders in the maritime industry.

This study provides an objective analysis of the different countries’ global position as maritime nations using a comprehensive benchmarking framework. The results are an indication of the overall development in a country over several decades, and to some extent mirror the economic growth and size of a nation’s economy. The presence of several small, high income economies among the top 10 leading maritime nations indicates the importance of policy measures and public institutions, including high investment in R&D, innovation and tertiary education focusing on the maritime sector at a national level.

Evaluation of Organisational Aspects of Norwegian Aid Administation

Menon har sammen med NCG evaluert arbeidsdeling mellom norske ambassader og Utenriksdepartementet på bistandsområdet. Evalueringen viser at ambassadene har fått en noe mindre sentral rolle innen bistand enn hva de hadde for få år siden. Vi finner at samarbeidet på et overordnet nivå fungerer godt, men at det er utfordringer knyttet til opplevd manglende kompetanse om bistand i Utenriksdepartementet, samt utfordringer med overlapp internt i UD og mellom Norad og UD. Menon anbefaler en egen karrierevei for bistand for å styrke bistandskompetansen fremover

End of Project review: Capacity Building Program for Vietnam

Menon Economics has carried out an End of Project review of a capacity building program in the water supply, wastewater/drainage and solid waste sectors in Vietnam. The capacity building program was designed with the purpose of improving the sustainability of twelve infrastructure projects funded by Norad and the KfW Development bank through a mixed credit scheme. The review is carried out in accordance with the OECD DAC criteria for evaluation of development programs and is based on interviews with stakeholders at five project sites, as well as document studies. We find that the program has had mixed success, with several activities enhancing the capacity of the infrastructure project stakeholders, but that the additionality of some activities is low and their contribution to overall objectives is questionable. The project is carried out under Menon’s framework agreement with KPMG and Norad.

What to consider as a hotel when choosing a hotel affiliation chain

The report combines qualitative and quantitative methods to explore what to consider as a hotel when choosing a hotel affiliation chain in a European context.

The market for luxury hotels is growing and the analysis indicates that the main value drivers for luxury hotels are quality, service and brand affiliation. This makes it highly relevant for individual hotels to enter hotel affiliation chains.

The report looks into the Norwegian affiliation chain: De Historiske Hotel og Spisesteder, and the international ones: Leading Hotels of the World and Relais & Châteaux.

Value creation analysis for private equity funds in Norway 2017

The value creation analysis was carried out by Menon Economics on behalf of the Norwegian Venture Capital & Private Equity Association (NVCA). The study illustrates the importance of private equity funds for Norwegian business and industry in terms of employment and value creation, and shows how this is distributed over different phases and industries over time. The analysis also looks at how much capital is available for investments in the future:
• Today’s portfolio companies had a total value creation of NOK 37.2 billion during the last financial year for which accounting figures are available. This amounts to 1.6 percent of GDP for mainland Norway.
• The companies owned or part-owned by private equity funds employ approximately 68 900 persons.
• ICT, petroleum and retail dominate the investments of private equity funds in Norway. Petroleum used to be the biggest industry in terms of value creation, but has now been passed by ICT, which has doubled its value creation since 2009.
• The development of the companies in the period before and after private equity funds took ownership shows that the portfolio companies experienced significant growth after the private equity fund invested. This is especially true for the earliest phases, where the growth rate changes following the fund’s investment. The result is a clear indication that private equity funds contribute to the further development of Norwegian growth companies by supplying capital and expertise.
Norwegian and foreign private equity funds have NOK 23.2 billion in available capital for new investments. Buyout funds stand for NOK 18.6 billion of this, and venture funds for NOK 4.6 billion.

Norwegian Maritime equipment suppliers 2017. Key performance indicators and future expectations

Menon recently presented this year’s equipment report to 400 participants at the Shipbuilding Conference in Ålesund, Norway.
The analysis shows a sharp decline in activity and profitability in recent years. 2017 also appears to be a weak year, with continued decline in activity and low profitability
As regards to further development, a number of indicators show that developments in 2018 will also be marked by a decline, but we expect the decline to be lower than in previous years.
Order reserves fall and market prospects for key segments such as offshore oil and gas and traditional shipping are characterized by overcapacity.

However, 2018 can be the year to reach the bottom when it comes to activity and profitability. Earlier major activity cuts combined with the transition to new markets mean that one is likely to see growth again soon. The companies themselves are very positive, and nearly six out of ten respondents expect growth already next year.
