About International Precious Minerals Group, Inc.
Number Nine Visual Technology Corporation (Number Nine or the Company) was incorporated in Connecticut in 1982 and reincorporated as a Delaware corporation in 1994. Number Nine is an innovator and a supplier of high-performance visual technology solutions, including video/graphics accelerator subsystems, chips, productivity-enhancing software and flat-panel monitor bundled solutions. The companys products enable desktop personal computers (PCs) to generate and display the increasingly sophisticated visual content of today's computing environment with greater speed, photorealistic color, high resolution and full-motion video.
The company provides high-performance visual technology subsystems that render and control the graphic and video images transmitted to desktop PC monitors. The companys products enable a PC to operate with more color, higher resolution, faster screen refresh rates and other features. The companys primary products are video/graphics accelerator subsystems incorporating its productivity-enhancing software.
Imagine 128 Accelerator Subsystems: In 1994, Number Nine began shipping an accelerator subsystem based on its first proprietary 128-bit video/graphics accelerator chip. This chip (Imagine 128) was the first 128-bit video/graphic accelerator chip in the industry.
This architecture consists of a 128-bit graphics engine with a 128-bit data path between the chip and the graphics memory. This architecture allows the graphics engine to receive and process twice as much information per clock cycle as 64-bit accelerator chips. In addition, the Imagine 128 family interfaces with the host PC through a 32-bit register structure that directly matches 32-bit operating systems such as Windows 98, Windows NT, 32-bit CPUs such as the Pentium II, 64-bit CPUs such as Alpha, and 32-bit buses such as PCI.
Third Generation 128-bit Products: During 1997, the company completed development of its third generation 128-bit video/graphics products, Revolution® 3D which was based upon its third generation proprietary 128-bit video/graphics accelerator chip, Ticket to Ride.
Series 2 architecture: The Ticket to Ride chip was designed to provide faster 2-D and 3-D capabilities, including texture mapping for high-end entertainment and advanced memory support.
Fourth Generation 128-bit Products: During 1998, the company completed development of its fourth generation of 128-bit video/graphics products based on enhancements of its third generation 128-bit technology. The company designed its fourth generation 128-bit chip, Ticket to Ride IV to provide faster performance and enhanced 2-D and 3-D capabilities, an internal RAMDAC and advanced memory support.
128-bit Accelerator Subsystems for the PowerMacintosh®: In addition to Imagine 128 products for the PC, during 1995, the company introduced Imagine 128 accelerator subsystems for the PCI-based Apple PowerMacintosh® and corresponding PowerMacintosh® "clones." Imagine 128 for PowerMacintosh® utilizes its proprietary family of Imagine 128 accelerator chips as a video/graphics engine. The company designed Imagine 128 for PowerMacintosh® for users of graphics and video-intensive applications, such as Mac-based color, pre-press, desktop publishing and other applications requiring photorealistic true color at high resolutions.
Imagine 128 Accelerator Chips: In addition to accelerator subsystems, the company expects that there will be increasing opportunities to sell Imagine 128 technology as a chip-level product to selected original equipment manufacturers or "OEM's" and to developers of non-PC, graphics-intensive embedded applications such as medical imaging and 3-D simulation.
The company utilizes accelerator chip technology procured from industry partners, referred to as merchant technology, for 64-bit products. This merchant technology provides high performance across a broad range of functionality and price points.
9FX Accelerator Subsystems: The company most recently introduced 64-bit products introduced in 1996 comprise the 9FX family. The 9FX series feature video acceleration and interpolation to provide full-screen, full-motion video with minimal loss of color quality and motion continuity. During 1997, the company developed the Reality 334 product based on the S3 Virge GX2 accelerator chip.
Number Nine Visual Technology has designed, built and delivered working samples of its forthcoming graphics accelerator board to many of the industry's largest makers of computers. The boards, known as the "SR9 Series", are the industry's first announced AGP 4X (Accelerated Graphics Port) capable graphics accelerators.
Software Drivers: Software drivers are programs that control the execution of graphics commands and the interaction between the CPU and the accelerator chip. Software drivers analyze complex graphics commands received from the operating system, reduce them to simpler segments and pass them to the accelerator chip for execution.
Software Utilities: The companys HawkEye software utilities provide an end-user with easy-to-use tools that control numerous graphics display features in the Windows environment. HawkEye was introduced in 1992 and is included with every accelerator subsystem that it produced. HawkEye95 was introduced in 1995, providing an upgrade to support the Windows 98 32-bit operating system environment.
The companys major customers include International Business Machine Corporation, Fry's Electronics, Inc., Quantex Microsystems, Inc., Dell Computer Corporation, Micron Electronics Inc., Inc and Hitachi, Ltd.
The companys major competitors include ATI Technologies, Inc. (ATI), Diamond Multimedia Systems, Inc., and Matrox Electronic Systems, Inc. (Matrox). In addition, the companys major competitors on chip technology include 3DFX Interactive, Inc., 3DLabs Inc., Ltd., Nvidia Corporation, ATI and Matrox.

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?
