SWOT ANALYSIS ON DynCorp International -
November 29th, 2010
DynCorp International is a United States-based private military company (PMC) and aircraft maintenance company. DynCorp receives more than 96 percent of its $2 billion in annual revenues from the federal government.
The corporate headquarters are in Falls Church, Virginia. However, substantially all of the company's contracts are managed out of its office at Alliance Airport in Fort Worth, Texas.
The company has provided services for the U.S. military in several theaters, including Bolivia, Bosnia, Somalia, Angola, Haiti, Colombia, Kosovo and Kuwait. DynCorp International also provided much of the security for Afghan interim president Hamid Karzai's presidential guard and trains much of Afghanistan's and Iraq's fledgling police force. DynCorp was also hired to assist recovery in Louisiana and neighboring areas after Hurricane Katrina. Recently, Dyncorp and the Department of State have been criticized for not properly accounting for $1.2 billion in contract task orders authorized by the State Department to be used to train Iraqi police. DynCorp has held one contract on every round of competition since receiving the first Contract Field Teams contract in 1951. DynCorp won the LOGCAP II contract and is one of three contract holders on the current LOGCAP IV contract

* Small portion of the population with access to banking and credit services
* JV with Bancolombia to boost traffic to stores, ticket as well as increase ROE with the introduction of additional products such as insurance and personal
* Follow-on providing funds to accelerate further
expansion and store remodelings
* Improving consumer stance in Colombia is attracting
new entrants to the retail sector (Carrefour and Falabella from Chile)
