...players in the space (only govt. run MTNL is above Airtel in the broadband space; Hathway and DishTV are above Bharti in DTV space). Every company hopes to convert stars into the next cash cows. Bharti will have to sustain each business unit's market leadership, which may require extra cash in order for the unit to remain a leader. In case Bharti fails in maintaining its leadership position, the star SBU’s may convert to dogs in a slowdown situation. * Question Mark (Low Market Share – Low Industry Growth Rate): Airtel Retail and Insurance come under the question mark category – low market share – low industry growth rate. Organized retail is under a lot of regulatory pressure, and has in fact shown a very sluggish growth rate. Plus Easyday, Bharti’s venture into this space is yet to establish a very strong foothold. Similar is the case with Bharti AXA Life insurance. * Dog: Bharti’s business of fixed line is in a dog stage (low market share – low market growth). It has under 10% market share and the market is contracting, with most users transferring to wireless/mobile services.

The US supermarket group's India venture, Bharti BSE -0.68 % Walmart, now at the centre of a raucous political debate on the entry of foreign firms into the supermarkets sector, wants landlords of all its stores in India, including Easyday stores operated by partner Bharti Enterprises, to give undertakings saying they are not party to and will not indulge in corrupt practices, effectively bringing them under the ambit of US anti-bribery laws. Landlords are not only expected to certify that they have not paid any bribes while building the premises, but also give undertakings that give Bharti Walmart powers to periodically check their books and other documents, a person with direct knowledge of the situation told ET. A second source confirmed such an exercise was underway, and noted that KPMG had been tasked with securing undertakings from landlords. A landlord of an Easyday store in the NCR said a Bharti Walmart executive had called him earlier this week to inform him about an anti-bribery agreement that landlords must sign as part of the Foreign Corruption Practices Act, or FCPA, a 1977 US law that bars American firms and individuals from bribing government officials in any foreign country wherever they are operating or working in.

When the deal ended, both parties proclaimed to walk away as winners, with Bharti Enterprises showcasing their already established independent chain of ‘Easyday’ stores as the future of world-class retail infrastructure in India.

But if we observe Walmart has continuously maintained its market share by regularly allocating funding to its Research and Development division. Recently, it has opened the Walmart Lab in Bangalore with about 100 developers to work on technologies and solutions for Walmart’s global e-commerce business. On the other hand, Bharti has time and again indicated their commitment to the already established ‘Easyday’ brand (Nandakumar, 2013).
