Mangosteen Products: Concentrate from discarded skin

Current Status Revenue Generating, Pre-Profit
Amount Invested RM 1,200,000
Funding Required RM1,000,001 to RM2,000,000
Description It all started as I wanted to find a cure for my multiple ailments. I managed to find it in mangosteen. I extract xanthone from mangosteen and turn it into palatable juice. The juice cured my hypertension, diabetes, arthritis as well as cough. I used to take pills daily for ten years until 4 years ago I need not take any more pills. I have a list of testimonials verifying the effectiveness of my mangosteen juice and mangosteen soap. I spent the next 10 years doing research on mangosteen. The latest product that I have formulated is detergent.
Almost all detergents and shampoos use SLS as their base; and SLS itself causes skin irritation. So far nobody has found a substitute for SLS because it is cheap. Now I have found a good substitute for SLS in xanthones that can be found in mangosteen skin. Mangosteen skin can be collected and is free, therefore our raw material is free. Hence our detergent production cost is low.
Business Opportunity Our Mangosteen Juice Concentrate is comparable to Xango and Veema, the two top runners of mangosteen juice in America. And in USA mangosteen juice is a billion dollar market. The market in Middle East and China is still untouched.
Our RTD Mangosteen juice is a unique drink and has no equivalent in the market. Either you like it or you don’t. If you like it there is no substitute just like Coke.
Many people come to buy our soap because other brands give them skin problem. Our soap contains xanthones and no other additional chemicals.
We have just formulated xanthonised detergent. What is available in the market is SLS detergent and SLS is a skin irritant. With proper advertisement we should be able to capture a good market share in our detergent.
Revenue / Business Model We have the following SKU selling in the market now:

1 Xanplus Mangosteen JuiceConc
2 Xanplus Mangosteen RTD Juice
3 Xanplus Mangosteen Juice Syrup
4 Xanplus Cookies
5 Xanplus Biscuit
6 Xan-soap

Below items have been formulated but not in the market yet
7 Laundry Soap
8 Liquid Soap
9 Hair Shampoo
10 Car Shampoo
11 Floor Shampoo
12 Dish washing Detergent
13 Laundry Detergent
14 Deodorant
We are dealing with consumer products, meaning our products are needed every day. Our product have good profit margin. For example, our concentrated mangosteen juice is selling for RM 70 per bottle to end user and RM 35 to agents whereas our cost is RM 6.
We are dealing with Healthy food and drinks, a sunrise business. Our drinks are xanthonised meaning they have high anti-oxidant level.
Unlike other normal drinks that give a sticky sensation on the throat after drinking Xanplus drinks leave the throat dry and comfortable.

Should the buyer want us to take over the operation for the start we would appoint distributors and agents and set our own outlets in busy shopping malls.
Within 3 years we should be able to export our product overseas and we aim to go public in 5 years. That is the potential of this business.
With our sunrise products and right management team I foresee that the company can progress very fast and very far.

Management Team At present I have 3 assistants managing the whole set up.

Experiences
1978 – Set up Envilab Sdn Bhd single-handedly to carryout water
and wastewater testing commercially.
1980 – Extended testing to include oil testing and air monitoring
1981 – Extended lab to include :-
Designing and constructing of wastewater treatment plants
Designing and constructing of sewage treatment plants
Formulating and compounding of water treatment chemicals
1994 – Extended services to include Environmental Impact Assessment
study.
1996 – Extended services to include Environmental Audit.
1996 – Get the laboratory accredited under ISO scheme (within 6 months).

In 2000 at the age of 52 I resigned as director of 3 companies and went over to Australia in seek for a cure for my decade old chronic ailments. And I found the solution in xanthones which can be extracted from mangosteen.

Company Background The company, Xanthone Enterprise, was formed 12 years ago with the intention of extracting xanthones from mangosteen for medical purpose.

Later we found that SLS in detergent could be causing unexplained cancers. So we went into finding ways to incorporate xanthones into liquid soap to form detergent. After years of experiment and verification we finally compounded a detergent that is non SLS based.

The first few years we just gave away samples in exchange for testimonials.
Then we sell products to friends and relatives.
We set up stalls in hypermarkets to promote our products. And last year we set up a counter beside a Hotel to display our products. Due to financial constraint we are not able to progress further. We exhausted our fund in R&D. I thought we might as well sell off the business if we cannot find any financial supporter, and partly I need a rest.
After all it is not difficult for someone to take over the production once the formula is there.

Funding Milestone Initial stage we will just make use of present premises in Johor Bahru while start looking for a bigger area at strategic place. (Getting the new factory ready will not be in our scope of work, but furnishing and installation of machinery can be incorporated).

At later stage we can consider setting up more manufacturing plants in other countries. The company here will only supply the intermediate products, hence keeping the formulation in safe hands.

Right now we are using our counter in a shopping complex to promote our products. As there are too many products with only 3 staff to handle sales and production we can only concentrate making the popular and important items. We are also doing OEM for a company. We actually started as a R&D company with a selfish aim of finding a cure for my decade multi-ailments which neither Western medicine nor Traditional Chinese Medicine could cure.

% Equity Allocation 50% to 100% depending on agreeable amount
Expected ROI around 40%
Risks and Mitigation Here the investment risk is minimal not taking political factor into account. Our products effectiveness are proven. For example baring exceptions, after taking our Xanplus concentrate mangosteen juice it takes 2 days to see positive improvement in a diabetic case; immediate result in cough, flu and constipation.

Our detergent is SLS free and that is a strong selling point.

Our production processes leave no pollution.

We are working towards a clean and green environment. We produce healthy food and drinks and non toxic toiletries.

Unless we have a poor management team there is no reason not to be successful, even if the economy is bad.

Exit Strategies Our main focus will be on RTD mangosteen juice, soap and detergent because those are fast moving items and we have lots of advantages over other brands.
Once the company goes public the investors can draw back their fund and reap their interest, we target this to happen in 5 years time.

Business Opportunity Many people come back for our soap because it is effective in solving skin problem. Our soap contains xanthones and no other additional chemicals.
We have just added non-SLS (sodium lauryl sulphate) xanthonised detergent to our list of products. What is available in the market is SLS detergent and SLS is a skin irritant.

Our RTD Mangosteen juice has high anti-oxidant and is the only xanthonised drink in the market.
Our soap is well received in the market. Many regular customers come because the soap washes off from the skin very fast.

Our detergent has no toxic chemicals like triclosan, SLS, DEA and this is a strong selling point. Hospitals, clinics, hotels and laundries would definitely prefer non toxic detergent. This product is new in the world!

Revenue / Business Model

Since we are using “pollutant”( thrown away mangosteen skin) as raw material our production cost is low and margin is high. We are in fact churning trash into cash. At the same time we are helping to keep the world clean.

We are dealing with consumer products, meaning our sale will be constant.

Except for concentrate mangosteen juice all our products have niche market.

% Equity Allocation 50% – 100% Depending on the amount

We are also doing OEM for a company that has many retail outlets.
Over the production side there is not much to worry about government compliance because there is very little pollution if at all.

Note:
According to the Environmental Working Group’s Skin Deep: Cosmetic Safety Reviews,6 research studies on SLS have shown links to:
• Irritation of the skin and eyes
• Organ toxicity
• Developmental/reproductive toxicity
• Neurotoxicity, endocrine disruption, ecotoxicology, and biochemical or cellular changes
• Possible mutations and cancer

General Business Activities

xxxxxx was established in 2002 and currently paves the way as one of the market leaders in medical equipment supplies in Malaysia. xxxxxxx’s success can be partly attributed to its strong partnerships with European and American brands, whom allow xxxxxx to act as an authorized representative in the Malaysian market. This officially allows xxxxxx to provide customers with a total solutions package for medical supplies, which includes importing, sales and after care services.

A loyal customer base of over 13 years has given xxxx the opportunity to continuously expand and increase its range of products and services. A key element of securing this customer base rests with the professional after care service provided by xxxxx, steadfastly committed and efficient.

Company Strategy

  • Purpose To be a leader in providing a total solutions package of medical supplies
  • Vision To provide quality products and services that exceed the expectations of our esteemed customers
  • Mission statement To build long term relationships with our customers & clients and provide exceptional customer services by pursuing business through innovation and advanced technology

Core values: We believe in treating our customers with respect and faith; we grow through creativity, invention and innovation; we integrate honesty, integrity and business ethics into all aspects of our business functions

Goals: Regional expansion in the field of medical supplies and develop a strong base of key customers. To continue to increase the assets and investments of the company to support the development of services.

Scope of Work

Supplies of medical/dental imaging equipment to hospitals, universities and private clinics in West Malaysia, with a focus on Klang Valley , Melaka, Johor. xxxxxx is currently engaging in business development activities on the island of Penang.

Financial Considerations

xxxxxx sets realistic but equally challenging sales target every year. These goals take into consideration the global economic outlook, currency exchange rates and the various taxes imposed by the government of Malaysia. xxxxx has met an annual increase of 20% in sales volume, raking in over RM2.8 million in sales in 2015 alone. Access to audited account information is available upon request.

Business Proposal 

I am xxxxxx the Business Development Manager for xxxxxx, I am also a minority shareholder in xxxxxx, I have been working in xxxxxx for 7 years now and I have developed this company from RM250,000 total sales to RM2.8million as of last year total sales. This amount comes from only 1 kind of product which is imaging (e.g. X-Ray Equipment)

I have an idea to change xxxxxx from an Imaging company to a Total medical/dental healthcare service provider. For this Idea we need larger investments but the returns are much higher.

What I am requesting from investor is that you buy out the majority share of the current company boss and sit as a major shareholder, and I’ll continue working here for you to manage the business with more investments I can assure you we can make more money.

The current owners are willing to sell it for RM600,000 this includes all licensing documents as you can see below , Brands that the company holds and also 2 cars worth RM300,000 it’s an Honda Accord and a BMW 320I

Once this is done you’ll hold 80% stake in the company and it would be great if I can hold remainder 30% stake as your good will. I will take this business into another level.

What the investment that I would require is RM1 Million. This amount will be used mainly to purchase stocks from suppliers and I have a method to get better pricing from suppliers if we purchase in Bulk all our equipment’s does not have an expiry date so your investments are safe unlike opening a restaurant or hotel where you need so spend money on renovation and it’s not guaranteed that you’ll make your money back.

Please take note that not all 1 million will be used to purchase stocks, In terms of this investment I would like you to control the funds and I’ll manage the business and grow it for you and for me at the same time.

In the first year of you coming I would like to change to look of xxxxxx, I would like give it a more fresh look, at the same time concentrate on quality and after sales service.

Amplified; the Headphones Store – A Portable Audio Gear Specialist

Current Status Revenue Generating, Pre-Profit
Amount Invested RM150,000
Funding Required RM300,000 or less
Description Simply put, AMPLIFIED is a headphones store. A niche business that sells portable audio gear to audio enthusiast and discerning music listeners.
With a growing demand for music portability worldwide, our Malaysian market is fast developing as the new arena for headphone and portable amplifier Brands.Therefore, with superior customer service and great product selection in a compelling retail store, AMPLIFIED is well placed to capitalize on this promising business model. The Company opened its first AMPLIFIED retail outlet at ‘The School’ in Jaya One, Petaling Jaya on 23rd December 2013.

AMPLIFIED’s management team has a strong retail experience that will ensure sound investment and the overall success of the venture. AMPLIFIED is projected for steady growth and has the potential to expand exponentially as the portable audio gear market continues to thrive in the region.

Business Opportunity AMPLIFIED stocks traditional headphone and earphone models, though the product mix is a little different from other audio-visual gadget stores.

We used our 12 months of eCommerce trading history to develop the right product mix for AMPLIFIED – to maximise the available square footage and profits.

We also offer AMPLIFIED loyalty points to customers – to encourage their patronage by giving away privileges such as free gifts, cash rebates and/or introductory discounts.

Our market analysis looked at local potential customers and their potential demand needs. We explored the portable multimedia device market and the digital audio availability. We concluded that with vast ready users of ‘smart’ devices with existing digital content providers, we were poised to serve the demand for portable audio gear i.e. headphones, earphones etc. Amplified; the Headphones Store is testament to that.

Revenue / Business Model Financial Highlights:

The business start-up capital was not an exuberant one but it did give a fair indication of the plans ahead. A good portion of the capital funds was secured through outsourced investment and personal monies from business owner(s). However, we are also looking at SME government grants to substantiate the operating expenditure for the first year.

Sales were expected to start conservatively in year one but increase steadily through to the fifth year of operations. We forecast that operating income will pay back the start-up funds over a five year amortization.

The inventory turnover ratios are kept around 5.0 (2 months’ supply) to ease up cash rather than tie it down with dead stocks. To do that, AMPLIFIED is required to purchase smartly and drive sales consistently.

Cash will also be retained in the business to cover cash operating needs as well as future expansion of AMPLIFIED’s business. We also intend to pay dividends to shareholders as early as end of the first financial year. We were also extremely conservative in the budgeting estimates in relation to a very realistic sales forecast.

Business Overview:

Headphones, portable amplifiers and multimedia speakers have revolutionized the personalized audio listening arena – redefining how we perceive vocal, music and other aural productions. Traditionally, good quality headphones and earphones remained out of the hands of most consumers in Malaysia due to their relative scarcity in local retail districts.

As a result, authorized Brand distributors with the urging of the Brand principals have invested time and resources into finding ways to give these audio gears higher local visibility, lower the retail cost, make them accessible (and fashionable too) to Malaysian consumers.

Due to this impetus and the growing social media network from which much of the publicity is gained, the local demand for headphones and other portable audio gear are on the up and starting to develop into large-scale consumer products.

Today, these items are truly consumer electronics devices with millions of users worldwide and Malaysia is no exception. Beats by Dr Dre is one very visible example of clever marketing that in itself has helped vast collection of other Brands approach the local market positively. This is further evidence that headphones (as a benchmark) are consumer products and are in good demand. High priced earphones/headphones have ceased to be an exclusive status symbol of audiophiles and are now in the hands of millions of regular music loving consumer like you and I.

Thus, AMPLIFIED, is taking advantage of an opportunity to become a highly distinguished and recognized retailer of portable audio gear. It is the goal of our Company to become established as the leading retailer of portable audio gears in the Klang Valley with concrete plans to expand into neighbouring states and possibly to the South East Asian region.

In order to achieve this goal, AMPLIFIEDs’ critical success factors is to identify emerging best sellers of brand models, integrate smart inventory management systems, streamline our retail operations and respond quickly to customer buying patterns. In addition, we will provide high-quality service, pursue cost effective methods in marketing/advertising and stay ahead of the “audio gear retail curve.”

The Company warrants that, AMPLIFIED is at the verge of capitalizing the growing Malaysian market for portable audio gear. Based on the current sales performances; we can spearhead the operations in a more dedicated and focused way.

Business History:

Over the past 3 years, we made significant strides, developing the business. Gross and operating margins have steadily improved and the business has continued to invest in inventory, advertising and marketing.

Sales grew due to good partnerships with reputable distributors, like IMS Distribution (AKG, Harman Kardon & JBL), Hwee Seng Electronics (Beats by Dr Dre & Monster), GrandTech (Shure), TEG (Bowers & Wilkins), Jaben Audio (Audio Technica, Beyerdynamic, Goldring, Final Audio Design), Event One (FiiO, AiAiAi) and TJM Products (Parrot Zik & Accutone). They readily referred customers and supplied stocks fast and efficiently that enabled AMPLIFIED to continue the good service reputation garnered in the market.

E-Commerce specialists WebShaper also contributed tremendously with their dedicated e-commerce templates with which we run our online shop i.e. shop.amplifiedhead.com. Our eShop is SEO optimized; that improved our search engine ranking and driven steady traffic of over 5,000 unique visitors per month. Our online shop accounted for 20% of sales to date.

The remaining sales came from our continued marketing and advertising efforts into our Facebook page and from direct walk-ins to our retail shop. Customers come after seeing flyers, posters or advertisement boards in and around Jaya One complex and neighbouring colleges as well.

Management Team AMPLIFIED is managed by Joseph Prabagar as Founder cum General Manager. Prabagar has extensive retail operations experience in luxury fashion, jewelry, mail order and loyalty membership retail businesses.

Prabagar will head sales strategy for the AMPLIFIED’s business and oversee the business operations and finances. In the interim, all human resources (hiring and training) would be handled by him also but as the business grows a HR Manager will be hired.

AMPLIFIED projects two more headcount to help operate the retail shop as Sales Consultants. These are sales persons who will be stationed at the front end point of sale i.e. retail shop and will report to the GM initially before a Store Manager is recruited at some stage. Their duties incorporate customer handling, stocking, security, cashiering and other relevant retail operational responsibilities.

We will hire a Product Manager to manage inventory and logistics at an appropriate stage later in the business. The Product Manager will oversee stock procurement and inventory management. At the moment all these responsibilities are with Joseph Prabagar.

Company Background Amplified Armature Sdn Bhd was incorporated on 10th May 2013. With an initial paid up capital on RM88,000 involving 4 shareholders.

We started business operations on 1st June 2013. First year revenue were RM249,820 (audited). 2nd year revenue were RM683,404 (audited). We have not made profits as yet but our losses have reduced from RM85,270 for financial year ending 31 May 2014 to RM51,927 (31 May 2015). In March 2016, we raised our working capital to RM150,000. We are in the midst of closing our 3rd year finances and the un-audited revenue reported at RM707,000++ (31 May 2016).

Funding Milestone The business required an estimated RM200,000 in cash for the initial start-up expenses and to sustain the business for the first year. We required these monies for new store fit-out, rental security deposits, inventory purchases and the cash-on-hand backing to meet 6 to 12 months payroll, rent and other fixed operating expenditure. We raised 50% the projected funds via owners’ personal investment but now seek balance funds from venture capitalist, government grant and/or angel funds.

Subsequently, Amplified started the business with a paid up capital of RM88,000 from owners and current shareholders in July’13. In March 2016 we revised our paid up capital to RM150,000 with funds from existing shareholder.

The business opened with ready inventory of RM85,000 in cost value (retail value approximated at RM112,000). This opening inventory was taken as stock purchases on credit and the Company sought the balance of the aforementioned RM200,000 to facilitate operating expenses as explained in paragraph one.

Use of Funds:

The ready financing covered the Company’s costs in the start-up phase, and year 2 shop expansion that included:
• Insurance premiums covering both general liability and product liability
• Retail store rental security deposits (Year 1)
• New e-commerce website set up (Year 1)
• New store’s renovation and fit-out in 2013 and further investment on store expansion in 2015
• Marketing activirties and online advertisements
• Normal legal expenses for consultation and permitting
• Additional inventory to supplement the bigger retail space

The required funds will also include office and store furniture/fixtures, wall shelving, computers, phone cum broadband accounts, point-of-sale system, cashier machine, accounting software, window display props, backroom racks, security systems and additional investments for on-going improvements to the retail store.

% Equity Allocation 40%
Expected ROI 5% to 8% per annum
Risks and Mitigation Risks:

The business is a traditional retail operations. Whereby, physical inventory needs to be procured always. Thus, this ties up cash and affect cash flow when sales are slow. Or the wrong inventory is procured and become unsaleable.

In addition, Amplified deals with audio equipment that isn’t a ‘need’ product. It is more of an enthusiast niche and ‘an indulgent’. When the potential customers’ have substantial disposal income in a strong local economy, then the business thrives. Hence the risk; if we head into an economic climate that is less desirable.

Mitigation:

Buy the right product and keep the inventory ‘lean’. When possible pay upfront; if that’s not feasible, procure inventory at the very minimum per model based on cash flow and sales history.

Exit Strategies We are open to suggestions on this part as we are rather inexperienced on this matter.

Give the generation in Malaysia a Eco environment with education and business

Current Status Concept / Business Plan
Amount Invested RM 500,000
Funding Required RM600,001 to RM1,000,000
Description Ideas:My business ideas is from me and my family after visiting hokkaido, Japan. The researcher found that there is most of the young generation had lack of the knowledge about recycle the rubbish such as plastic bag, paper and also aluminium. As a researcher from the reservation, I found that Malaysia is a very not opened country compare to other asia country. The population and the education in rural area is really limited and very less than city like KL, Penang and JB and most of the young generation going to cities like singapore for more job and financial opportunities. We should encourage them to do that. We need a clean environment and non-pollution environment. We should support those young generation to do more about recycling and provide more machine like vending machine, and recycling machine as in a shops to make peoples , adults, youngster have a power to do recycling and not to throw rubbish all the corner even in city or rural areas, Malaysia is lack of the education for that.

Business: To own the eco business in every corner in malaysia, we should start from the attitude and personality of everyone for even poor or rich peoples. The researcher proposed to start the business which is open a shop and set up half shop of vending machines which provide drinks or snacks for customers. And another half of shop which is for recycling machines. For those recycling machines, we can bring out the knowledge of doing recycle and we can contact recycle factory to sell or as a raising funds. In the shop we also educated the process of recycling in the wall. After do recycling, the machines will print out the rewards or points to exchange things in certain retails like convenient stores 7-eleven, 99 speedmart and more.
