Dear Companists,

First of all, we’d like to thank you for the great start we’ve had to our campaign. Thank you for your feedback and your continued support! We are especially excited by many of the new product ideas that we’ve received from the crowd. We already had some of these niches on our radar, while others are new to us and will be further investigated.

 

Revenue plan 2016 completely fulfilled

With a total revenue (prior to returns) of € 2,416,342.71, we were able exceed the financial plan’s revenue prognosis for 2016. In total, we had 697,586 unique visits to our website last year. We’re especially pleased with developments regarding our B2B efforts and our individual brand sales to our business partners. Currently, we’re able to count over 200 returning customers that regularly order our products or brands.

 

ambico increases online shop reach and decreases marketing expenditures

We were able to significantly increase the visibility of our online shop in Google’s organic search results. Our first online shop in the United Kingdom – www.planters-online.co.uk – increased this value by a total of 62% over the past few weeks.

 

www.planters-online.co.uk - the first ambico-Shop in Great Britian

 

This resulted in a significant reduction to our marketing costs: our entire budget for our google AdWords campaign is 70% below the point where it was in comparison to last year. This constitutes the basis for reaching profitability in 2017, and at the moment we’re right on track to achieve this goal.

Our equity-based crowdfunding campaign has garnered much interest in the media, and during the first days of the campaign, we received numerous requests for interviews and partnerships. We will continue to build off of the success of this campaign in order to expand our network and promote our brands and online shop. The combined revenue of all of our ambico shops for January is currently 7% ahead of the figures laid out in our plan, which can surely be attributed to our Companisto campaign.       

We look forward to hearing your feedback!

 

Kind regards,

Your ambico team.

NOTE:

Investments in crowdfunding projects offer great opportunities, but they are risk investments. In the worst case, the entire investment amount may be lost. Consequently, these investments are unsuitable for retirement plans. However, there is no obligation to make further contributions. Investors can minimize their risk by splitting their investment amount between crowdfunding campaigns rather than investing all of it in one crowdfunding campaign. 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 Companists 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 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, crowdfunding investments 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.
