The global plan is simple. We will secure a “partner” or master licensee for each country. The partner will buy our license for their country. They will be totally responsible for marketing in their country using standard marketing methods. Operating the software in their own country will be at their care
and cost. They retain 85% of all revenue while the product takes a royalty of 15% of the gross income each month based on cash flows. The product has a low cost base, which allows for considerable growth in profits as the international revenue base grows. The HQ is responsible for all online marketing while the partner looks after offline. HQ provides the partner with full support while the partner provides support to
Our current interest is in securing a Master Australian Licensee or Majority Owner for the business in Australia.
Use of financing
The software is currently in “market test” status.
The company will use new funding to:
• Go to market fully in New Zealand; and
• Go to overseas markets in due course (Australia, Pacific Islands, UK, Ireland, USA, Canada, Singapore, Philippines, South Korea and South Africa).
The objective is to develop individual online cashbooks for up to 40 countries over the next 12 – 18 months. Funding is required to bridge the gap between funds received from the sale of licenses and operating costs as the user builds to a critical mass before break-even on an on-going basis.
The key costs in relation to this in each country are the analysis and execution of the appropriate tax structures and charts of accounts, initial marketing costs to quantify and understand the market, and finding
and securing appropriate licensees in each territory.
Funds may also be applied to the acquisition of other smaller accounting software players in the marketplace who do not have an online solution. A combined operation brings numerous advantages for all parties, since
we have the online product and IT expertise and the acquisition targets have a client base that could generate substantial ongoing monthly fees for the combined entity very quickly.
Opportunity for the investor
This is an opportunity to be part of the changes and growth in the online accounting and financial software space which will soon be embraced by all business owners worldwide. We are seeking an Australian Master Licencee or Australian Majority Owner for our global business.
Investors are expected to earn attractive returns even if they exit in 2-3 years and substantially more by year
