Sawade Receives Large Order and Exceeds Target



Dear Companists,

With your help, we have already reached our funding goal of €1,000,000. Therefore, we would like to thank you very much for your confidence. We have already realized all plans we wanted to realize through our Companisto campaign or will do so within the next few months. And we will not stop our Companisto campaign, so it will continue for another 8 days.          


Reports for Fiscal Year of 2014/15 and for First Quarter of 2015/16 Now Available

Based on the preliminary figures available to us, we exceeded our target for the fiscal year of 2014/15 and achieved positive EBIT. Consequently, we have exceeded our targets in terms of both operational performance and profit. This positive trend continued in the first quarter of the fiscal year of 2015/16, and operational performance increased by 17 %, thus again exceeding our target significantly. You may now access the report in the investor relations section.


New Orders for 2016

We have received a large order. From January, we will produce 1.8 million mini butter-cream truffles for this customer. These truffles will weigh almost 11 metric tons, and we will process 1 additional ton of butter, 1 ton of cream, 5 tons of chocolate, and other ingredients in our Berlin production facilities from January.

Sawade Receives Considerable Press Coverage

We are in the middle of peak season for chocolate. Various media featured our delicious Christmas specialties. Berliner Zeitung, Berliner Morgenpost, B.Z., and food magazine EssPress were just a few of the media who featured Sawade.

Sawade Christmas Tree Decorations Sold out

Compared to last year, we have produced significantly more tree decorations for this year's holiday season. Still, all of our tree decorations products were sold out in mid-November. These products include, for instance, dark chocolate cones filled with fruit cream and wrapped in colorful foil that may be used as tree decorations or as beautiful gift tags. In addition, this year's Christmas trees will be full of nuts filled with fine nougat and of bells filled with cream nougat wrapped in golden and red Christmas foil. In total, we produced more than half a ton of Sawade tree decorations. Have a sweet holiday season!

Renovation of Offices

We need significantly more space. Therefore, we have started modifying our offices. Until the turn of the millennium, the former factory owners lived in the rooms above the production facilities; ever since they moved out, the rooms have been empty. We are now renovating these rooms and will use them as offices in the future.

New Sawade Retailer

Our network of retailers selling Sawade products is growing continuously. In fact, we have recently received pictures taken at the stores of two new retailers in Berlin. We wish all of our retailers a wonderful winter season, many customers, and stores full of people.

Investments in startups and growth companies offer great opportunities, but they are risk investments. In the worst case, the entire investment amount may be lost. Consequently, investments in startups or growth companies are unsuitable for retirement plans. However, there is no obligation to make further contributions. Investors can minimize their risk by diversifying the amount they invest in startups and growth companies and not investing the entire amount in one startup or growth company. Professional investors often follow this strategy because it causes the risk to be distributed among several investments. In this way, successful investments can balance other less successful investments.

The shares of the investors on Companisto are subordinated profit-participating loans (partiarische Nachrangdarlehen). Such loans are shares in a business with similar characteristics as equity. If the company becomes insolvent or is liquidated, the claims of the investors (Companists) – just like those of all other shareholders of the company – will be satisfied from the assets in the insolvency or the assets in liquidation only after the claims of all other external creditors have been satisfied. Thus, Companists are treated like any other shareholder of the company during insolvency or liquidation proceedings.

The company information published on the Companisto website is provided solely by the companies. The projections made by the companies do not guarantee successful development of the company in the future. Consequently, investments in startups and growth companies are suitable only for those investors who can cope with the risk of a total loss of the capital invested. Investors make their own independent investment decisions and bear all risks themselves.

The investments are provided and issued by the individual companies. Companisto is neither the provider nor the issuer of the investments, but solely the internet service platform.
