    Executive Briefings

    We operate in a highly competitive industry and market and believe that such competition may intensify in the future. The markets for wireless voice and data products are characterized by intense price competition and significant price erosion over the lives of products. We compete principally on the basis of value in terms of price, capability, time, product knowledge, reliability, customer service and product availability. Our competitors may possess substantially greater financial, marketing, personnel and other resources than we do, which may enable them to withstand substantial price competition, launch new products and implement extensive advertising and promotional campaigns. The distribution of wireless devices and the provision of logistic services within the global wireless industry have, in the past, been characterized by relatively low barriers to entry. Our ability to continue to compete successfully will be largely dependent on our ability to anticipate and respond to various competitive and other factors affecting the industry, including new or changing outsourcing requirements; new information technology requirements; new product introductions; inconsistent or inadequate supply of product; changes in consumer preferences; demographic trends; international, national, regional and local economic conditions; and discount pricing strategies and promotional activities by competitors. The markets for wireless communications products and integrated services are characterized by rapidly changing technology and evolving industry standards, often resulting in product obsolescence, short product life cycles and changing competition. Accordingly, our success is dependent upon our ability to anticipate and identify technological changes in the industry and successfully adapt our offering of products and services to satisfy evolving industry and customer requirements. The wireless device industry is increasingly segmenting its product offerings and introducing products with enhanced functionality that compete with other consumer electronic products. In addition, products that reach the market outside of normal distribution channels, such as gray market resellers, may also have an adverse impact on our operations. Our current competition varies by service line and division as follows: Our logistic services business competes with general logistic services companies who provide logistic services to multiple industries and specialize more in the warehousing and transportation of finished goods. Manufacturers can also offer fulfillment services to our customers. Certain mobile operators have their own distribution and logistics infrastructure that competes with our outsource solutions. For logistic services, specific competitors and the division in which they generally compete with us include Brightstar Corporation (all divisions), GENCO-ATC (Americas), New Breed Logistics (Americas), UPS Logistics (Americas), Arvato Logistics Services (EMEA), CEVA Logistics (EMEA) and Kuehne + Nagel (EMEA). Our repair, refurbish and recycle services business competes with companies that specialize in these services as well as general logistic services companies that provide repair, refurbish and recycle services as part of their service offerings. For repair, refurbish and recycle services, specific competitors and the division in which they generally compete with us include Foxconn (Americas), GENCO-ATC (Americas), Moduslink-PTS (Americas), New Breed Logistics (Americas), and Valutech Outsourcing (Americas). Our activation services business competes with other specialists who establish and manage independent authorized retailers and value-added resellers and with mobile operators who have the infrastructure necessary to manage their indirect channels. For activation services, specific competitors and the division in which they generally compete with us include Vincent Huang  Brightpoint

    Government Contracts

    In 2016, the federal government spent a total of $14,220,410 on Wholesale Electronic Markets & Agents & Brokers. It has awarded 267 contracts to 79 companies, with an average value of $180,005 per company.
