Dear companists,

with this update, we would like to offer you some information on the course of the first half of 2017 and to provide you with an outlook for the second half of the year.

 

copaltec exceeds expectations for the 1st half of 2017

We succeeded in achieving our targets for the first half of the year. Together with the deposit for the order from China [EUR 37,000], turnover to 30.06.2017 [EUR 143,000] amounts to approximately EUR 180,000. We had planned sales of 153.000 EUR for the first half of the year (actual turnover in previous year: EUR  76,000).

Our workload in the first half of the year was characterised above all by test phases for our potential volume customers. The main sales drivers continue to include our existing customers and our distributor from China. Our potential volume customers, for whom test developments could be carried out and invoiced for, already account for smaller sales volumes. The following overview of the shares of turnover:

 

Revenue breakdown by client groups

 

We define "volume customers" as customers with a sales potential of > EUR 250,000 per annum and the "central pillar clients" as a customer group where each has a sales potential of > EUR 50,000 per annum. With regards to the "central pillar clients" and the "volume customers", we are planning significant project volumes for the future which are already in advanced acquisition and test phases.

In particular, in the second half of the year we plan to move the small sales volumes from the current customer business to being larger project revenues. At one major customer (a large technology group from Southern Germany), production will commence in the 4th quarter of 2017. We are also confident that we will gain "volume customers" from our pipeline in the second half of the year and that we will be able to realise revenue from development and framework contracts. We are also planning for a further order from our distributors from China.

 

EUR 100,000 investment threshold exceeded! - Our Next Steps…

Upon reaching the financing threshold of EUR 100,000, we have initiated the search for a professional sales manager. Because of the “summer slump", we plan to employ somebody at the end of the 3rd quarter, at the latest in the 4th quarter - the "on-boarding" will, however, also depend on the termination conditions of the candidate. We are being supported in the search by a professional personnel consultant (Focus Magazine “Top personnel service provider" 2015, 2016 and 2017) from the network of our investor, EKKUB - copaltec will not incur any costs for the search because this concerns a replacement.

Depending on the outcome of the campaign, we plan to recruitment additional staff. In the area of project management - insofar as we are able to realise the funding target of EUR 600,000 EUR - the employment of a technical key account manager is planned. This person is to be responsible for the volume customers and should promote the associated project business.

Also, we are already on the search for larger commercial premises with a view to counteracting high transport and logistics costs due to external storage capacities. It is our aim to move in the first quarter of 2018. Alongside a larger production and storage area, attention will also be paid especially to having very good process and logistics flows. As companists, you may be able to help us in the search for suitable premises: we would be very grateful for any tips concerning available commercial areas - please send these to gewerbeflaeche@copaltec.de.

We are looking for:

  • Approx. 1200 – 1700 m²
  • We require production, laboratory and storage areas (ideally located on the ground floor) and office facilities
  • Ceiling height min. 5 m and floor load min. 3.5 t (production and warehouse)
  • Location: 20 km radius from Stuttgart and reachable for our employees by means of public transport

 

 

We hope to have you fully informed with the 3rd update and look forward to your questions and, of course, any helpful information concerning our search for premises.

 

Kind regards,

Stefanie & Andreas

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.
