• Threats
Finally, let’s focus on the threats that may arise from the environment surrounding the company. Spain is still recovering from the deep economic crisis suffered, thus the GDP growth rates are not still expected to be high and competitive over the following years, moreover the unemployment rate in Spain is one of the highest of Europe. In addition, the political climate is tense due to the political changes happening in the government, moving from a right-wind party towards a left-wind one, due to those changes new rules and laws can be applied which could affect the way how Oakley does business in Spain. Finally, the last threat would be the intense competition faced by the company and that could become more intense as it has been seen over the last years with the appearance of new brands such as Hawkers, Palens or Knockaround.
