About SGI International
SGI International, (the company) a Utah corporation was organized in 1980. The Company is primarily in the business of developing and marketing energy-related technologies, which at the present include the Liquids From Coal (LFC) Process and the Opti-Crude Enhancement Technology (OCET) Process. The Company is also attempting to develop the Level Sensor (LS) and Asphaltenes Processing Technology. The LS technology is designed to overcome a number of limitations presented by existing "off-the-shelf" equipment and sensors.
The Company is primarily engaged in the business of developing and marketing energy related technologies. The Company identifies its business segments based on its developing technologies. These strategic business segments offer products and services to different markets. Accordingly, the Company's basic business segments are centered on the operations associated with the LFCÒ Process, the OCET Process, and manufacturing customized automated assembly systems.
LFC Operating Segment
The Company has developed a patented technology, which it refers to as the LFCÒ Process. The LFCÒ Process produces two products, one called Process Derived Fuel (PDF), and the other, Coal Derived Liquids (CDL). PDFÒ produced by the LFCÒ Process has a higher heating value and in general has improved environmental properties when compared to the feed coal. As of December 31, 2000, the Company through LFC Tech has one outstanding license for the LFCÒ Process. This license was issued for the operation of the ENCOAL LFC Demonstration Plant.
Products & Markets: The Company's marketing efforts are in part based on the Company's belief that low-grade (or low-rank) coals of the world are relatively disadvantaged in the marketplace compared to higher-rank bituminous coals. Low-rank coals generally have higher water content, which makes them more expensive to transport to distant markets. Additionally, their lower heat value can make them a less efficient boiler fuel.
Cresylic Acid: The lightest liquids distilled and extracted from crude CDL contain commercially useful tar acids. Cresylic acid, also known as tar acids in the chemical industry, is a mixture of phenols, cresol, xylenols and other alkyl phenols.
Light Hydrocarbon Fuel: The CDL derived distillate fuel is produced by solvent extraction of material boiling below 550° F. It has viscosity, boiling point and flash point characteristics below SAE #2 fuel oil and an energy content greater than a SAE #2 fuel oil on a weight basis.
Mineral Wax: Industrial grade waxes, similar to those that can be extracted from CDL, are known as "slack waxes" and represent the largest segment of the wax industry. Applications for slack wax include composite board coatings (particleboard and oriented strand board), fertilizer de-dusting agents, anti-corrosive coatings and fire logs.
Anode Feedstock: Coal tar from the CDL appears to be a good blending agent with coal tars derived from the production of metallurgical grade coke. Pitch is the "glue" used to bind carbon particles together in industrial anodes, an essential component for the electrochemical reduction process to refine aluminum.
International Markets: The companys candidate coals, including those in China, Russia, and Indonesia, and entered into various memorandums of understanding with international governments and private entities, the recent economic and political conditions in these countries has negatively impacted the progress of these projects.
The Companys competitors include Western SynCoal, LLC, a subsidiary of Montana Power Company, and KFx, Inc., a public company, engaged in coal upgrading development.
OCET Operating Segment
The OCET Corporation, a totally-owned subsidiary of the Company, is a development stage company incorporated in the state of Delaware. OCET is developing an energy-related technology referred to as the OCET Process. The OCET Process is designed to deasphalt crude oil or resid. Resid is the residue remaining after processing crude oil in a refinery to produce liquid fuels and lubricants. The OCET Process is still in development, and will require additional research and development before it is ready (if ever) for commercial use.
Automated Assembly Operating Segment
AMS, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, incorporated in the State of California, is a supplier of custom made precision assembly equipment. AMS designs and builds custom, automated assembly systems marketed principally to manufacturers in three principal industries: medical, automotive and high-tech (which includes the electronics and communications industries). These assembly systems integrate multiple manufacturing functions often into a single custom production line built to the customer's specifications and objectives.
Products manufactured by AMS include material and component handling, dispensing and placement of film or liquid adhesives, sealants or customer-formulated materials such as pharmaceuticals, marking and encoding, assembly of components, riveting, swaging, inspection functions including machine vision inspection, testing, data collection and analysis. Completed AMS assembly systems may be from bench top size to almost a hundred feet in length, and may incorporate all types of subsystems, including robots, machine vision, conveyors, welders, mechanical tests, electronic tests and others as specified by the customer.
AMS's major competitors currently include Anatol Automation Inc., Ismeca Europe S.A., Midwest Automation Division of DT Industries and Wright Industries.

SWOT, which stands for Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats, is an analytical framework that identifies the internal and external factors that are favorable and unfavorable for a company.
Enhanced SWOT Analysis
Enhanced SWOT is a 3×3 grid that arranges strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats into one scheme:
- How to use the strengths to take advantage of the opportunities?
- How to use the strengths to reduce likelihood and impact of the threats?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that obstruct taking advantage of the opportunities?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that can make the threats a reality?
Upon answering these questions a company can develop a project plan to improve its business performance.
PESTEL (also termed as PESTLE) is an ideal tool to strategically analyze what influence different outside factors – political, economic, sociocultural, technological, environmental and legal – exert on a business to later chart its long term targets.
Being part of the external analysis when carrying out a strategic assessment or performing a market study, PESTEL gives an overview of diverse macro-environmental factors that any company should thoughtfully consider. By perceiving these outside environments, businesses can maximally benefit from the opportunities while minimizing the threats to the organization.
Key Factors Examined by PESTEL Analysis:
- Political – What opportunities and pressures are brought by political bodies and what is the degree of public regulations’ impact on the business?
- Economic – What economic policies, trends and structures are expected to affect the organization, what is this influence’s degree?
- Sociological – What cultural and societal aspects will work upon the demand for the business’s products and operations?
- Technological – What impact do the technological aspects, innovations, incentives and barriers have on the organization?
- Environmental – What environmental and ecological facets, both locally and farther afield, are likely to predetermine the business?
- Legal – What laws and legislation will exert influence on the style the business is carried out?
IFE, EFE, IE Matrices
The Internal Factor Evaluation matrix (IFE matrix) is a strategic management tool helping audit or evaluate major weaknesses and strengths in a business’s functional areas. In addition, IFE matrix serves as a basis for identifying and assessing relationships amongst those areas. The IFE matrix is utilised in strategy formulation.
The External Factor Evaluation matrix (EFE matrix) is a tool of strategic management that is typically utilised to assess current market conditions. It is an ideal instrument for visualising and prioritising the threats and opportunities a firm is facing.
The essential difference between the above mentioned matrices lies in the type of factors incorporated in the model; whilst the latter is engaged in internal factors, the former deals exceptionally with external factors – those exposed to social, political, economic, legal, etc. external forces.
Being a continuation of the EFE matrix and IFE matrix models, the Internal External matrix (IE matrix) rests upon an investigation of external and internal business factors integrated into one suggestive model.
Porter Five Forces Analysis
The Porter’s five forces analysis studies the industry of operation and helps the company find new sources of competitive advantage. The analysis surveys an industry through five major questions:
- What composes a threat of substitute products and services?
- Is there a threat of new competitors entering the market?
- What is the intensity of competitive rivalry?
- How big is the bargaining power of buyers?
- How significant is the bargaining power of suppliers?
VRIO stands for Value, Rarity, Imitability, Organization. This analysis helps to evaluate all company’s resources and capabilities and bring them together into one aggregate table that includes:
- Tangible resources
- Intangible resources
- Innovation and Creativity
- Organizational capabilities
The result of the analysis gives a clear picture of company’s competitive and economic implications, answering the questions if the resources mentioned above are:
- Costly to imitate?
- Organized properly?
