Rare Wine Auction Site

The worldwide market for rare and collectable wines is the fastest growing segment in a $310 billion market. The company currently for sale emerged as the first rare wine internet auction site in the world offering weekly wine auctions. Founded in 1998 and located in Oregon, this company became the building block for the formation of a larger wine group. Using a combination of technology, proprietary market data, intellectual knowledge, and a passion for fine, rare, and collectable wines, the owner has brought this company and the larger group to $14 million in annual sales. Sales in 2012 included shipments to clients located on every continent of the world except Antarctica. Sixteen years of industry experience, and an aggressive market expansion strategy all mean that this company and larger group are uniquely positioned for significant and immediate growth.

The Owner has identified thirteen growth opportunities, he and his team are executing a strategic growth plan that was formulated in late 2009 and early 2010, and has been continually updated. As a result, the company is well on its way toward taking full advantage of some of these additional growth opportunities. For the right buyer, the owner would be willing to remain with the company in a reduced role, making both this company and group a turnkey opportunity.

Combined revenues for this group in 2012 were over $14 million. First quarter sales for 2013 were $3,790,886 and increase of $638,184 over Q1 Sales for 2012. The combined companies have a competitive four-year average gross margin history of 22.01%. The Sales Performance Table in the Financial Section (6.0) indicates projected revenue of $30,000,000 .The company is well positioned to take advantage of growth opportunities for a new owner with the right capital base

This company and group have ten competitive advantages that focus on its market niche, including technology, location, product sourcing, and customer base. Each of these advantages contributes to the future growth and prosperity of the company

Predictability of personnel and management for a buyer is vital. The current operation is strong and all processes are solidly executed with a well-trained and loyal workforce. With a turnkey management team in place, a new owner can focus on growth opportunities
