Industry: restaurants / f&b

Project Stage:

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY:

Company History:

Owned by husband and wife, British/Iban respectively. Sala Nacha Sdn Bhd is a newly launched Malaysian Food Restaurant, located in Kuching Sarawak. We are seeking investment to expand our current restaurant and set up a second branch in UK, as we see huge potential for Malaysian cuisine within the UK.

Product / Service Description:

We want to export the best dishes of Malaysian cuisine and sell them as a takeaway/delivery outlet in the UK. We already have the chef’s menu and branding. We just need the cash injection to establish the second branch.

Business Opportunity:

Our initial branch is targeting Cardiff, Wales, UK. There is no other Malaysian takeaway in this city and Cardiff is the Capital of Wales. Within this city there are more than 200 established Chinese takeaway’s. We can see that the Malaysian food we’re selling, is similar to Chinese, but with new menu additions. As a British national, having sampled our entire menu, I have complete confidence that our food will be extremely popular. In addition we have a number of Western customers at our restaurant, who also highly compliment our Malaysian food.

Revenue Model:

First and foremost, hard work. I worked 15 hours a day, 7 days a week to make the business successful. I will not fail in making this company a chain restaurant , across UK + Malaysia, but I will be happy to sell out when the time is right and the offer high enough .

Management Team:

Owner/Operator husband and wife team. Previous professional experience was in the banking/insurance sector; working as a business consultant in Saudi Arabia for 2 years, before starting a family and moving to Malaysia, for my wife to be near her parents.

Current Status:

We have invested ~RM 180,000 to-date. We have been trading 4 months. Average turnover currently ~RM 17,000 per month. However, we expect this to greatly increase with over coming months, as we begin to become more established. Our ‘worst daily taking’s’ have increased month on month. Currently small monthly profits. But we’ve already had glimpses of what the future holds in terms of potential.

Month 1-2 22% increase on previous month
Month 2-3 23% increase on previous month
Month 3-4 44% increase on previous month

With a UK branch, the monthly turnover/profit will increase significantly.

Funding Milestone:
The investment we are seeking will be used for:
– working capital
– Marketing/Advertising 20,000 delivery menus printed/distributed
– increase current seat capacity from 44 (13 tables) to 90 (total 25 tables)
– start a second branch in UK

Business Valuation:

We’re willing to sell a 49% share in our business for rm 160,000. Return of capital within 2 years. Then continued share in business of 20%. We have already invested RM 180,000. It means your investment is at an 11% discount, compared to capital already invested.

Expected Return On Investment:

Return of capital within 2 years. Then you hand back 29% of your share, keeping 20% share in the business, drawing 20% of profit monthly.

Investment Risk and Mitigation:

Business already operating above break-even month-on-month. Customer feedback is positive and we are getting a lot of repeat custom. We are working are to promote our business locally, which should increase profits and further reduce risk. At this time we consider the investment opportunity, very low risk.

The biggest risk to your investment would be how quickly we can payback your initial cash injection. Of course, it will be in our interest to pay back within 24 months, if we fail to deliver back your investment as promised either through capital raised from the business, or private equity, we will forfeit the ‘29% buy-back clause’. Essentially we need your investment as a short term loan, which we will pay back and you retain a stake in both the UK and Malaysian businesses.

Exit Strategies: See risks and mitigation. We will buy back 29% of your shares for the amount you invested, leaving you 20% of the company. If you should wish to sell your additional 20%, we would look to discuss an offer with you at the time.

With plans to go regional in South East Asia, this turnaround plan will involve integration of highly technical systems, combined with infrastructure in China as well as partnerships with countries throughout the region, Ferrucci is poised to make a big turnaround that will change the merchandising industry as we know it.

As a result, with Ferrucci existing multinational client base, we expect to create a quantum leap in revenues and growth when this turnaround strategy has come to fruition.

The promotions industry is a huge market relative to the number of competitors in the space. With estimated sizes of RM200-500million, it is a lucrative arena to any company that is able to dominate the market which is fragmented with numerous small players.

Equity is up for negotiation and figures are negotiable. However, we expect to retain majority of the company.

Expected Return On Investment:

ROI is dependent on various calculations which we will show to investors. However, due to the nature of this business whereby there is literally no constraints to growth, investors can expect 200%-500% growth in a year.

Investment Risk and Mitigation:

Investment Risks are minimal as funds will not be used all in one go, rather done in stages.
Major risks that can come from this business is that the strategy for turnaround does not work and business does not develop that competitive edge.

Exit Strategies: Exit Opportunity is to go for listing. Or to sell out to other investors. With this current expansion plan, there is the ultimate goal to develop tangible assets with systems in place that will make this business an efficient and effective merchandising house that will be able to run by itself. This unique blend of systems and regional presence will make this business a unique opportunity among all other businesses in the merchandising industry.

The Transporter – Voivode seeking RM280K expansion fund

Project Cost: RM316,000

Amount Invested : RM36,000

Amount Required : RM280,000

Knowledge / Experience Required: general management

Proposed Investor’s Role: part-time

Industry: engineering

Project Stage: early expansion

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY:

Company History:

Mr. Rama, the Technical Director, is a marine engineer by profession and has over 20 years of experience in the Oil & Gas Industry. He recently quit his job to venture into this project, which he has been developing in his mind for more than a decade. He has spent thousands of hours in designing and redesigning his version of transporter before finally decided to build the actual unit for commercial purposes. Mr Gopal, the CEO, is a degree holder in the field of Agribusiness, majoring in Financial Management and has worked with local banks and finance companies before. Currently, he is teaching Physics and Additional Mathematics at an international school. He is also a member of MENSA Society International.

Product / Service Description:

Our transporter,Voivode, is going to revolutionise the entire load-carrying truck designs in future. We have included major changes in the Design Methodology, Assembly Approach, Payload to Gross Vehicle Weight Ratio(GVWR) Ratio, Suspension System and introducing Eco-Friendly Propulsion Philosophy and the Drive by Wire system.

Business Opportunity:

The Multi-Purpose Transporter (MPT) that we are designing now, will replace the existing ‘lorihantu’ in the construction and mining industry in this country. There are estimated to be around 5,000 such vehicles in this country, with the replacement rate of 50-100 units/year. The existing models incur high maintenance cost and have problems of lacking of spare parts. We see this as an opportunity as our MPT has the following unique features:-
• Multi-purpose, AWD, All Terrain, Hybrid, DbW(Drive by Wire) Transporter.
• AHRS(Attitude Heading Reference System) guided.
• At least 4 layer redundancy for onboard control system.
• Active suspension system with active height adjustment.
• Eco-friendly, vis-a-vis, light-weight, high strength-to-weight ratio material application, e.g.: Carbon fiber, Aluminum, Titanium(mainly fasteners).

Revenue Model:

Existing similar models are being sold for about RM250,000. Our variable cost per unit is about RM70,000 and the total estimated cost per unit will be kept under RM120,000 and we plan to either:-

A) Use Build and Sell concept – We have the capacity of assembling 2 units per month. Being more pessimistic, by assembling one unit per month,we can make gross profit of around around RM50,000 per month, as we can easily sell this for RM170,000-RM190,000. We will break even before the end of first year.

B) Propose For Joint Venture – JV with current players in the market is very much possible if they see the future potential of our model. Revenue depends on negotiation but surely worth doing, due to quantity to be produced.

C) Sell the idea – Once the demo model is ready, we can offer the idea to be bought over by any global investors for many times of the initial investment.

Management Team:

Mr. Rama, the TD will head the project and will be in-charge of the whole team
Mr Gopal will be in-charge of overall managemennt and Finance.
Mr. Rajasegaran, a very experienced mechanic, is willing to join full time once the fund is available to start the project.
We are also planning to bring in 4-5 students from a local automation college as apprentice.

Current Status:

We have already set-up office, fabyard and also done initial brainstorming sessions as well as crucial FEA studies on main truss. Comprehensive Gantt chart is available upon request.

Funding Milestone:

RM200,000 is needed for purchasing of tools, equipments and parts to fabricate and assemble the model.
Another RM80,000 will be needed in 10 equal payments every month to cover the operations cost.

Business Valuation:

We propose profit sharing of 30% with the investor.

Expected Return On Investment:

It’s 20% for the first year itself and estimated to be 60% from second year onwards. Comprehensive cash flow analysis is available upon request.

Investment Risk and Mitigation:

The biggest risk is the stiff competition from Chinese versions and technically, our product is far superior compared to any of those models. Among other risks is the risk of competitors copying the same model and we have plans to patent our design before introducing to the market. All the innovative ideas in our design were tested and proven separately but not introduced in one single unit. However, we are doing FEA study for all major parts to overcome this issue.

Exit Strategies:

Investors can exit by giving 3 months notice and all their investments will be paid in full. One of the founder has a fully paid property worth half a million and agrees to sell it off and pay the investor in the event of an exit.

Investment opportunity in a 7 years old Private College in Kuala Lumpur

Amount Invested: RM1.3 million

Amount Required: RM6 million

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY:

Company History: XXXXXX International College was founded by a group of academics with a passion for providing affordable and innovative education environment to the youths in Malaysia. The college has been in existence for 7 years and has graduated a total of 4 batches of students since its inception. The two main directors of the company consist of the former Registrar of the University of Adelaide and a former treasurer of Nestle and marketing strategist with vast experience in the education industry.

Product / Service Description: The Malaysian education industry is undergoing monumental shifts with the constant evolving landscape coupled with transformation and enhancements in government policies. There is also increasing demand for quality education both locally and regionally. XXXXXX is well positioned to establish a stronger market presence in Malaysia and the Asia Pacific region to take advantage of the customer demand. As a privately owned company XXXXXX is unable to tap this huge potential due to limitations in the size of the company as well as the required funding to provide the impetus to drive the company forward. Therefore, the owners are keen to strategically restructure the company through divestment (total or partial) and invitation to prospective investors to participate in the equity of the Company.

Business Opportunity: The company as it stands is faced with slow growth primarily due to lack of funding and the surrounding aspects that affect its critical success factors as explained above. The Company has been funded by the personal savings of the directors and shareholders and this has created a strain on their personal assets. In order for the long-term survival and growth of the company, the directors are of the opinion that injection of fresh capital is necessary. They are therefore keen to explore a major restructuring plan that will turnaround the company and generate returns to the prospective investor and the existing owners of the company. They are open to further negotiation on the manner of funding and to deliberate further on the current and future prospects of the company.

Revenue Model: The injection of funding into the company will allow the company to embark on its long term expansion plan that includes the following:

Upgrading the infrastructure with the building of a new university college specially designed campus complete with advanced teaching and sports training facilities and student residences
Enhancement of in-house facilities e.g. improved computer assisted learning equipment, lecture theatres and halls, resource centres, drafting studios and recreational facilities
Upgrade the quality of human capital including employing the best teaching and administrative staff
Development and execution of strong and aggressive marketing strategies e.g. product development, branding and market penetration
Establishment of strong alliances and partnerships with reputable foreign universities
Building of a solid and effective academic research and development department
The materialisation of these plans and the success of current and new business ventures will translate into increased student numbers and overall revenue for the company

Management Team: The Management team consists of the following
XXXXXX

Current Status: XXXXXX Group has sustained a reasonably good track record and has established goodwill over the years. In January 2013, the government announced a 2 year freeze on the setting up of new private colleges, university colleges and universities. Investors who wish to embark on education business will not be able to set up these institutions until this moratorium is lifted. There are numerous advantages in acquiring an existing business as a going concern as opposed to setting a new one as much of the cost involved in set up, building reputation, developing programmes, partnerships, licences, etc provides added value that would otherwise take years to acquire.

Funding Milestone: The college needs a funding of RM 4 – 6 million in order to propel it to a higher level in order to reap the benefits of the business.

Business Valuation: We are willing to consider a full management buy out and maintain the current management to manage the college in order for the ROI to be achieved.
