About Foremost Income Fund
Foremost Industries Income Fund (the Fund) is an unincorporated open-end mutual fund trust established by a Declaration of Trust in 2001, as amended and restated June 28, 2002, under the laws of the Province of Alberta. The Fund was established to invest in securities of Foremost Industries Limited Partnership (Foremost LP). Foremost LP is a continuation of the business formerly conducted by Foremost Industries Inc. Foremost LP is in the business of the design, manufacture, sale and service of heavy all-terrain vehicles and drilling equipment for the mineral exploration, waterwell, construction, transportation, energy and environmental industries.
The Fund is a unit trust for income tax purposes. Under the terms of the Declaration of Trust, all Canadian taxable income of the Fund will be allocated to Unitholders resulting in no Canadian tax expense for the Fund.
Foremost's various products can be grouped into three business segments: Drills; Parts, Tooling and Pipe; and Vehicles.
Foremost continues to focus on growing and enhancing its drilling rig product lines, which offers the highest potential growth and profitability. The growth is largely attributable to the success of its custom engineering and manufacturing of CTRs. For certain depths, the new process of drilling for oil and gas with continuous coiled tubing, has shown significant productivity advantages versus conventional jointed pipe. Efficiencies have resulted in productivity records and in increased rig utilization rates for CTR customers using products built by Foremost. In June 2002, Foremost delivered first dual-mode rig, which is capable of drilling with either coil or conventional threaded drill pipe.

This business segment includes: vehicle and drill rig parts; drill pipe; mining tools; equipment rental; and augers and bits. Also included within this segment is the revenue generated by in-shop service and re-builds for capital equipment.

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?
