Threadless Closures Ltd

Crowdfunding, Equity, Syndicate Room
0

Issuer: Threadless Closures Ltd

Threadless Closures develops an innovative type of PET packaging for the beer industry. The product, named Xottle, is a glass-shaped widemouth container with a twist-off cap.

Location:  London, UK
Industry: Packaging Design
Sector: Widemouth Beer Packaging
Instrument: Equity
Read the Research Snapshot below or access the full report below.

 The company

  • Threadless Closures develops an innovative type of PET packaging for the carbonated beverage industry.
  • The company wants to give consumers a better overall experience and claims to see the technical challenges the industry currently faces as an opportunity to create sustainable value.

Deal information

  • The company is aiming to raise £200,000 for 8.19% equity. It is raising on Syndicate Room.

What we think

  • The product is at an advanced stage, having been developed over the last eight years. It is now ready for market, with many of the expected development hurdles already resolved.
  • There is clearly an opportunity for diversification beyond beer into other beverages.
  • However, while the timing may be right and the cost of production may be declining, the company will still be relying on beer brands being willing to pay a higher price to invest in innovative packaging.
  • Threadless Closures will operate on a licensing model putting the focus on its IP. But at this stage it is hard to value the company’s IP – it is not included in the current balance sheet.

In the full All Street report you can also learn more about the company's management team and board, its revenue model and market potential and an overview of their key financials.

 The company

  • Eris FX wants to create a fair and ethical foreign exchange business using cutting edge technology, and offering the best rates in the industry

What we think

  • Eris FX has already had over 2,000 customers since launch and completed 10,000+ deals. This is a good start and signs of a business up and running
  • The scalability of the product and the size of the market opportunity is impressive
  • However, it operates in a crowded market. Both incumbent market players with financial strength plus emerging peer-to-peer lenders pose a risk to its growth

Issuer: Ffrees Family Finance Ltd

A financially inclusive current account targeting the underbanked.

Location:  Sheffield, UK
Industry: Financial Services
Sector: Internet Business, Fintech
Instrument: Equity

All Street on Ffrees:

Read the Research Snapshot below or access the full report below.

 The company

    • Ffrees provides digital current accounts for people looking for an alternative to traditional banking
    • The company believes its model can change society for the better by offering a banking service on equal terms to all
    • It specifically targets underbanked individuals and families in the UK. It helps them to save, pay bills, and avoid debt

 

 Deal Information

    • The company is aiming to raise £500,000 for 8.5% equity. The raise is being supported by the Seedrs platform

 

What we think

      • With limited marketing Ffrees has already built a brand and customer base. It has attracted over 14,000 regular users and 48,000 accounts
      • The management team behind the company includes successful serial entrepreneurs and experienced technology and banking professionals
      • However, there is a considerable gap between the company’s post-restructuring value from August 2015 and its higher stated valuation at this point of fundraising
      • The robustness and scalability of the new Ffrees banking platform currently in development is as yet unproven and will be the key to its success

Check4Cancer Ltd

Crowdfunding, Equity, Syndicate Room
0

Issuer: Check4Cancer Ltd

Check4Cancer specialises in making available cancer screening tests to corporate and private customers.

Location: Cambridge, UK
Industry: Healthcare
Sector: Cancer Screening Services
Instrument: Equity

All Street on Check4Cancer:

Read the Research Snapshot below or access the full report.

The company

  • Check4Cancer carries out cancer screening tests for corporate and private customers covering 88% of all incidences in the UK. The company wants to diversify into diagnostics services for corporate clients, cooperation with cancer treatment clinics and insurance companies.
  • Its mission is to become the market leader for premium early cancer detection services for corporate clients and individuals.
  • The company estimates its UK market at £390 million, with the US and European markets at £1.4 billion and £2.3 billion respectively. The company is already active in all three.

 

Deal information

  • The campaign aims to raise £500,000 for 9.26% equity through Syndicate Room. The company predicts 3-5x return on investment within 3 years.

 

What we think

  • Supported by experienced angel investors, the company should benefit from their network to support client acquisition, financial management and exit negotiations.
  • Although the company is in early stage with modest revenues at this point, it appears to have a first mover position for many of the services provided, at least in the UK.
  • However, turning this into a sustainable advantage could prove challenging given the modest capital level available and pace of expansion reliant on generating positive cash flow for reinvestment.

In the full All Street report you can also learn more about Check4Cancer’s management team and board, its revenue model and market potential and an overview of their key financials.

0

Issuer: Plaqsa Ltd

A simple app that allows consumers to shop online with their friends.

Location: Stockport, UK
Industry: Web & Apps
Sector: E-commerce & Social Media
Instrument: Equity

All Street on Shop n Social:

Read the Research Snapshot below or access the full report below.

 

The company

  • Shop n Social aims to provide a free, cross platform shopping app to allow users to browse, share and chat while shopping online.
  • The app is yet to launch but is projecting 608,000 active users by December 2017 growing to 2.5 million in 2018.
  • Shop N Social estimate the combined e-commerce market in the UK, US and India (their target markets) is worth £77 billion.

 

Deal information

  • The campaign aims to raise £450,000 for 18.36% equity on offer. The deal is being supported by the Seedrs platform.

 

What we think

  • Together, the co-founders have combined circa 30 years of management, software development, creative and design experience, all of which are highly relevant to the business.
  • The company’s target market is the fastest growing consumer segment on the internet and the app is highly scalable. Shop n Social’s business model insulates it from handling inventory or delivery, managing order, processing payments or handling packaging and shipping.
  • But Shop N Social is yet to launch and has no active users. Developing a strong subscriber base is critical to the success of the business. A full plan to acquire users is not yet in place. The company will also face competition from other startups as well as established e-commerce and social media players like Facebook, Pinterest and Twitter.

In the full All Street report you can also learn more about Shop n Social’s management team and board, its revenue model and market potential and an overview of their key financials.
