The target is a branded eCommerce Retailer operating in the growing Privacy Screens & Filters Sector within the Office Products Category. This company has achieved 325% YOY Earnings Growth and is laser-focused on selling screens and filters for computer monitors, laptops and tablets to healthcare Firms, Financial Institutions, Governmental Entities, Higher Education, Consulting and Shared Service Centers. The company approximates that a large percentage of sales are B2B and will continue to remain strong given the growing need, worldwide, for data security from Visual Hacking and other data risks. The SKU count in the US grew from 17 to over 50 in the last 12 months, helping to promote growth.
This Internet Company has been developed from the ground up using smart, margin monitoring tactics by a Founder that is looking to turn this over to a group that can continue the growth trends that have continued since inception in 2015. The books and records for this business are in good order, making it a prime candidate for a qualified buyer to use an acquisition loan through one of our Lending Partners to purchase this company with as little as 10-15% down – with the balance amortized over the course of a decade at low interest rates.
The company currently focuses its sales efforts on the Amazon channel in the US, UK and the EU with all products picked, packed, shipped and stored via Amazon’s Fulfilled by Amazon logistics platform. This makes an acquisition a relatively smooth prospect, with no need for a warehouse or warehouse employees, low OPEX and a smooth transition plan in place with ownership willing to do what is necessary to ensure the transition is smooth for any buyer.
The company currently has approximately 50 ASINs on Amazon.com with a Best Seller tag in place for a Privacy Screen. Compared to the competition, the company has the highest average product reviews on Amazon. In terms of Best Seller Rankings, the company usually has 5-10 SKUs in the top 20 and 15-20 in the top 50. The company has an innovative and diverse product line of privacy products, from standard, film-based privacy screens, to screens for MacBooks that attach via magnets and screens for edge to edge laptops, iPad and Surface Pros that attach with a new silicone seal technology that may be patented in the coming years. The company also has numerous other innovative product launches that they are working on with suppliers.
This fine-tuned machine consistently enjoys well above average margins thanks to a streamlined logistics / fulfillment model that offers the agility to minimize OPEX regardless of volume, SKU or shipping destination. Warehouse overhead is unnecessary, with core infrastructure running smoothly to ensure both turnkey operations as well as maximum volume. The products are small and lightweight, therefore shipping and Amazon fees are minimized.
This savvy retail business is ready to be taken to the next level thanks to enormous scale potential offered by such a polished platform coupled to a firmly established brand – international sales can be expanded upon, a Search Engine Marketing and Social Media Optimization plan can be created to expand sales on the Shopify website, additional SKUs that support the current base of SKUs would grow sales on current channels, diversification into adjacent subcategories is an easy move with related products and accessories through the current suppliers, expansion into other laptop and monitor accessories, and an expansion of the product lines into wholesale and brick & mortar would be a great scale opportunity as well.
This is a fantastic opportunity to jump into a growing retail market with highly consistent growth and robust infrastructure immediately at hand.
