    Yes and no, it's not as capital intensive as say oil or mobile phone companies (e.g. BP, O2, that invest a lot in infrastructure before they can generate revenue) but more capital intensive than service industry, e.g. estate agents, because it has to invest in factories to produce the goods. However this is increasingly outsourced to suppliers.

    Marke ans Spencer is a retail chain. They don't have any Capital Equipment per se. Then how can it be a Capital Intensive company. They can borrow on their inventory so it is not in manufacturing and so not.
