  3. Benchmarking Study • The following analysis is based on fDi Benchmark, an online location benchmarking tool provided by the Financial Times (FT) • fDi Benchmark compared the Scottish Central Belt with the leading locations globally for a Food and Beverages manufacturing plant based on an analysis of over 55 quality factors and 10 cost factors • A key emphasis was placed on: - Presence of industrial cluster - Labour availability and quality - Infrastructure and accessibility • Other factors including the general business environment and living environment were also assessed

  4. Project Profile Overview

  5. fDi Benchmark Matrix The fDi Benchmark Matrix shows the trade off between cost and quality across the 5 selected locations for the Food & beverages manufacturing plant profile. The average cost and quality score is 100 for the selected locations. The ‘ideal’ quadrant is the top left (high quality/lower operating costs) Source: fDi Intelligence, from the Financial Times Ltd

  6. fDi Benchmark Matrix Source: fDi Intelligence, from the Financial Times Ltd • The matrix is based on the weighting and cost model for the Food & beverages manufacturing plant profile. The weighting model identifies the key location criteria for the project and the cost model shows the primary cost inputs for the operation. The cost and quality scores are calculated using real data on all the location requirements and cost inputs. • The results indicate the different location solutions for the investor as follows: • the Scottish Central Belt and Barcelona offer higher quality at lower cost than the average of all the selected locations • New York City offer higher quality but at higher cost • Montreal offer lower cost, but at lower quality • The Operating Cost value is in GBP - United Kingdom Pound

  7. Location Attractiveness Index The location attractiveness index shows the overall attractiveness of the 5 selected locations for the Food & beverages manufacturing plant profile. The ratio of quality to cost is 50:50 Source: fDi Intelligence, from the Financial Times Ltd

  8. Cost Quality Competitiveness • The cost quality competitiveness uses the results of the fDi Benchmark Matrix to show the value for money of each location option. The graph shows that: • The top location offering the highest quality for a given level of cost is the Scottish Central Belt • the Scottish Central Belt also offers an above average level of quality and good value for money as its relative quality is higher than its relative cost Source: fDi Intelligence, from the Financial Times Ltd

  9. Cost Competitiveness • The annual operating cost calculation for Food & beverages manufacturing plant is based on the following primary input costs: Labour Cost, Property and Utilities • The average cost across the selected locations for Food & beverages manufacturing plant is GBP 8,421,854 • The greatest cost saving between the selected locations is GBP 1,246, 994 per annum • The values in the chart below are in GBP - United Kingdom Pound Source: fDi Intelligence, from the Financial Times Ltd

  10. Cost Competitiveness • The location with the lowest operating costs is Montreal • In terms of the individual cost factors, the location with the lowest costs is: • Labour Cost: the Scottish Central Belt • Property: New York City • Utilities: New York City • The values in the table below are in GBP - United Kingdom Pound Source: fDi Intelligence, from the Financial Times Ltd

  11. Quality Competitiveness The quality competitiveness assessment is based on the weight model for the Food & beverages manufacturing plant profile which assesses each location across the following location factors: General Business Environment, Labour Availability and Quality, Presence of an Industrial Cluster, Infrastructure and Accessibility and Living Environment.
