Boston, MA 04/22/2014 (wallstreetpr) – Banco Bradesco SA (ADR) (NYSE:BBD) has decided to concentrate on the local domestic market instead of venturing overseas. Being based in Brazil, Latin America, it realizes that the existing potential in its domestic market is still untapped. Only after it can fully cater to the local consumption will it venture out to other international markets as per its press release on April 16, 2014.
Reasons for staying Domestic
Banco Bradesco SA (ADR) (NYSE:BBD) already has a huge marketing network in place in the local domestic market, besides the company feels that the domestic consumption is large enough to meet their targets. Brazil at present is the second largest emerging market in the world and its domestic market share is substantial enough to offer good returns to the stakeholders.
The company feels that fulfilling the local requirement with its products and expanding locally in Brazil is the need of the hour.
The Brazilian economy is growing at a 2% growth rate annually, however, the banking sector seems to have recovered from the difficult times it has faced in recent times and seems to outperform many other businesses.
Being a $61 billion company, BBD has designs to promote a wide range of banking and financial solutions that will include mortgage loans, investment banking, credit operations, deposit taking and personal and corporate banking.
The company has incorporated techniques to grow its revenue and earnings while simultaneously keeping its expenses to a minimum. This combination is expected to be favourable to the stake holders as the share price is expected to increase. In fact, the share value has increased by almost 30% in the last month, suggesting a further rise in the stock prices in the coming days.
Banco Bradesco SA (ADR) (NYSE:BBD) is developing strategies to achieving better returns from long term revenue growth with an agreement with Brazil’s oil major Petroleo Brasileiro Petrobras SA (ADR) (NYSE:PBR).
