Financial Ratios





Net Profit Margin




Total Assets Turnover




Return on Assets




I think you based on the financial ratios,

The above ratios show that the company has been running its operation neither efficiently or effectively. The net profit margin ratios have been calculated by considering net income and total revenues for each year; the assets turnover has been calculated using total revenues and total assets. The return on assets has been calculated by multiplying net profit margin and assets turnover. The net profit margin represents net income earned after deducting all expenses from revenue, the negative profit margin in each of the year shows that company has been incurring more expenses as compared to total revenues, however, it could reduce its negative profit margin from 255.41% to 43.51% in three years time period. The assets turnover was very low in 2006 and increase to 2.35 in 2008 which shows that the company has been running its operation more efficiently in the later year, but because of the negative profit margin the return on the assets was in the negative percentage and due to this negative profit margin the negative return on asset is higher due to higher assets turnover in 2008. It means that if the net profit margin is in negative the excessive use of assets will result in negative return on assets. These ratios were selected as it shows the efficient and effective use of total assets.

Section 5- Alternative Solutions
1. Endorse a professional athlete or team:
​Professional teams have millions of fans who want to mimic their every move. This will help with brand recognition, overall sales and marketing as well. This will have a quick increase in sales as fans will want to endorse the product(s) their favorite player always has on hand. This will also allow opportunities of getting a store in the stadium, or running a special if the team wins. As athletes are health conscious, endorsing a product that is actually beneficial to them is a win-win for the athlete, Jamba, and the customer.
2. Partner with schools:
​As we know the obesity rate is high and a lot of schools have banned the sale of soda and sugary drinks. Being able to give a healthy option that students will enjoy can allow them to make the smarter choices while in a snack driven environment. This also helps with getting long time customers. Students will use brand recognition at a young age and increase loyalty from customers for years to come. Partnering with a school will help establish and enhance the relationships with customers and the community. Being the company that cares for the livelihood of our youth will put parents at ease if they don't have time to fix lunch for their children. They feel alright knowing that there is still a healthy lunch and options at school for their child.
3.More TV and radio advertisement:
​Word of mouth doesn't allow the proper exposure. Brand recognition is a HUGE thing. you want your customers to know who you are and what you're offering. The more branding Jamba does the faster they will see the turn around. The more and more people hear about Jamba Juice the more they want to go out and try it for themselves. You want to sell the experience of Jamba so that customers will come back time and again. Now that we live in a health conscious world people are looking for the alternative to a drive through burger. Downfall to this is that if you don't find the right marketing niche it could be a total bust.
4. Partner with a large corporate Gym:
​As we know most gyms have a juice or smoothie bar that's privately owned. It's never opened or under new management every few months. Gyms need a reliable trustworthy company that can keep their doors opened and members happy. People pay a lot of money for gym memberships and the amenities that membership comes with. Being able to partner with a large company (i.e. One Life or Planet Fitness) will allow the opportunity to open hundreds of stores in their locations nationwide. Putting a well known popular brand such as Jamba Juice in their establishment can help their membership rates. This will also give Jamba the recognition it deserves in being the healthy option members deserve after a workout, or the protein boost you need after a long leg day. Since these companies have hundreds of gyms and millions of members who visit frequently will allow them to recognize the brand and boost sales.
5. Theme Parks:
​Theme parks, although some are seasonal see thousands of people a day. If Jamba were to partner with a theme park it could allow them to open a couple kiosks or small stores on the premises. The amount of foot traffic that would be going by on an hourly basis would be enough to stay open. But theme parks or fairs never have the healthy options. Turkey legs, funnel cakes, and cotton candy, what about the people who are health conscious? Being one of the few that offers healthy options will open new doors for the park as well as Jamba. Since theme parks have a large tourist and vacation attraction you can afford to charge "theme park prices" putting the mark up on products wouldn't affect business because most parks you can't bring anything into the park so it's the parks products or none at all.
