About this business for saleInvestment Opportunity/Manufacturing/Export/Import
The existing business owner is looking for a prospective investor for an already well-established business.
The business owner has been doing business since 1989 with various natural products through proper research and development. Already in place are supply arrangements with various producers of raw materials and agency agreements for the import and distribution of plant and equipment (expellers, milling machines, etc.) and unique spices into the whole of the SADEC region.
A small plant has been established to carry out production trials and production runs of natural oils, uncontaminated spices and health supplements.
Funding, time and effort to date has been provided solely by the existing business owner, resulting in the business making only small profits. However, to exploit the full potential it now requires funding for the next level to achieve the following objectives:
> Invest in aggressive marketing of the products and services of the business including a full time marketing person
> Convert existing website to a commercial website, etc.
> Providing effective marketing material
> Expanding the customer base locally and overseas
> Invest in inventories (raw materials and finished goods)
> Expand product range and services
> Invest in new plant and equipment
> Establish a formal office in Gauteng
Numerous business opportunities have been identified, a few are already in place though achieved with limited resources and others to be researched further with emphasis on imports and exports.
This is over and above maintaining the current product and client base that has been developed over a period of time.
A detailed business proposal is available from the owner containing inter alia a three year projected Income Statement and working capital flows/cash flow statement.
The owner is prepared to relinquish 40% shareholding for an amount of USD40,000 (approx. R560,000) , offering an average ROI of 56% per annum over three years , following the first six months after funding has been required.
Various options are however available for an interested investor, including being actively involved as a working owner in the day to day running of the business.
The proven concept and ideas that have been developed since inception offer exciting opportunities including being associated with the current owner who has a passion for his quality product range.
The health supplements are already mostly registered with the Medical Research Council including with the required allocated NAPPI code in place.
This business opportunity will suit a young entrepreneur who shares the current owner’s passion for these products but will add value with business ideas, marketing and management skills.
