2. Threat of substitute products: The threat of substitute products is LOW. There are few products that can replace Aeris Resources Limited's products and services.

3. Bargaining power of buyers: The bargaining power of buyers is LOW. There are few buyers and they are not able to exert significant pressure on prices.

We view the CATWOE as being most useful when used in conjunction with other problem-solving tools such as a SWOT analysis.

Transformation process: Aeris Resources Limited focuses on finding, developing and producing gold through exploration and mining operations. The transformation process involves identifying prospective gold deposits on exploration projects, developing the resources, and producing gold through mining operations.

World view: Aeris Resources Limited aims to create value for its shareholders by becoming a leading producer of gold in the resources sector. The company is focused on creating long-term value through responsible exploration, development and production of gold.

When creating this SWOT the team at Platform Executive have taken into consideration the corporate strategy; brand; key financials; the competitive landscape; along with the products and/or services offered.

To offer increased context for future innovation and product development we also consider the historical context for the business and industry; and perceived direction of travel.

Upon researching the company, we have uncovered a number of strategic and operational strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats.

SWOT Analysis


Below is a list of the strengths we have identified for the business:

1. Experienced and diversified management team

2. Strong financial position with no debt

3. Extensive exploration portfolio in Australia and Chile

4. Large resource base with significant growth potential


Below is a list of opportunities we have identified for the business:

1. Implementing a capital expenditure program to increase production capacity and bring new mining assets into production: Aeris Resources Limited could benefit from investing in capital improvements in its existing mines, such as updating and improving equipment and infrastructure, and exploring new mining opportunities. This would enable the company to increase production capacity and bring new assets into production, which could translate into increased revenues.

2. Exploring new markets for gold and copper: As markets for gold and copper become more competitive, Aeris Resources Limited could benefit from exploring new markets for its products. This could involve diversifying the company’s product portfolio, targeting new geographic regions, forming strategic partnerships with other companies, or engaging in targeted marketing campaigns to promote its products.

3. Developing a stronger online presence: In today’s digital age, having a strong online presence is essential for any business. Aeris Resources Limited could benefit from taking advantage of online marketing tools to reach its target audience, build a strong brand identity, and differentiate itself from its competitors.

4. Enhancing safety and sustainability practices: Aeris Resources Limited could benefit from further improving its safety and sustainability practices in order to meet the demands of the current market. This could involve investing in additional safety equipment and training, developing new environmental policies and procedures, and implementing energy efficiency measures.


Below is a list of the weaknesses we have identified for the business:

1. Lack of Diversification: Aeris Resources Limited is focused on a single commodity – gold. This lack of diversification leaves the company vulnerable to fluctuations in the gold market.

2. Geographic Concentration: The majority of Aeris Resources Limited's operations are concentrated in Australia. This geographic concentration exposes the company to political and economic risks specific to Australia.

3. High Debt Levels: As of June 30, 2018, Aeris Resources Limited had $US 395 million in debt. This high level of debt increases the company's financial risk and makes it more difficult to finance future growth.

4. Small Scale: Aeris Resources Limited is a relatively small company with a market capitalization of $US 675 million as of October 2018. This small size may limit the company's ability to compete against larger gold miners.


Below is a list of the threats we have identified for the business:

1. Resource Depletion: As a mining company, Aeris Resources Limited is at risk of depleting its resources. This could impact their ability to meet the demands of their customers, leading to a decrease in revenue.

2. Market Fluctuations: The mining industry is highly volatile and can be subject to large fluctuations in the market. This can lead to increased competition and decreased revenues for Aeris Resources Limited.

3. Environmental Regulations: The mining industry is subject to various regulations and permits, including those dealing with environmental protection. Non-compliance with these regulations can lead to fines and other sanctions that could affect Aeris Resources Limited’s bottom line.

4. Political Risk: The mining industry is subject to various political risks, such as changes in government policies and regulations. This can lead to increased costs and decreased revenues for Aeris Resources Limited, which could have a significant impact on their operations.
