About

Woolies Jeans

Dear Potential Investors,

In 2018, fed up with my wearing hot and sweaty jeans in a wool shed, shearing New Zealand sheep, I decided to improve on my work wear. The funny thing was that I knew that the perfect pair of jeans could be made out of the product I was working with everyday.

Merino keeps you cool when it's hot and warm when it's cold. What I wanted to do was create a jean, which had the same subtle style of a classic denim workwear jean, whilst offering me the benefits of which merino can offer on the inside. I had my mum help design me a pair.

We designed a fitted work jean with merino lining on the interior. After some trial and development, I haven’t worn a normal pair of jeans since. I have made a few pairs for close friends (in exchange for a few beers), who have told me I should be talking to runway models in Italy about my idea.

I’ve never known much about business but know that these are some of the best jeans I have seen across shearing in England, Ireland, Scotland, Australia and New Zealand. I want to use funds from crowdfunding Woolies in order to patent the designs and to help build a supply chain, with my team, to allow farmers and shearers worldwide to enjoy the product that I have been lucky enough to be able to make.

Yours sincerely,

Jovian Garcia Cummins

    I am unsure of your valuation. Can you please provide more information of how you used the Berkus Method to calculate this?

    Posted on 04-10-2021 by Adrian Edge

    Hi Adrian,

    Thank you for your question. The valuation has been determined using the Berkus Method as follows:

    βœ… Sound idea ~ $2M

    βœ… Prototype ~ $1M

    βœ… Quality Management Team ~ $1M

    βœ… Strategic Relationships ~ $1M

    Cheers

    Answered on 04-10-2021 by Jovian Garcia-Cummins


    Doesn’t the Berkus Method have category maximums of 500k?

    Posted on 04-10-2021 by Adrian Edge

    Yes, but we have adjusted it for New Zealand currency and inflation for 2021.

    Answered on 04-10-2021 by Jovian Garcia-Cummins


    How many pairs have you made and sold to date?

    Posted on 05-10-2021 by Paul Naske

    Hi Paul, I haven't sold any pairs so far. Selling the jeans can influence the design patent - hence why I am trying to raise money so I can patent and then sell afterwards. Thanks.

    Answered on 06-10-2021 by Jovian Garcia-Cummins


    Hi Jovian - In terms of your forward projections, are your current team planning on drawing salaries, or hiring people. I imagine that this will very quickly become a full-time job for one or more people, and there doesn't appear to be much (if any) provision for that in the forecasts.

    Posted on 07-10-2021 by Adrian Edge

    Hi Adrian,

    We haven't factored in salaries because the the current team all have a shareholding in Woolies Limited and are able to work on a voluntarily basis.

    Thanks

      Warning statement about equity crowdfunding

      Equity crowdfunding is risky.

      Issuers using this facility include new or rapidly growing ventures. Investment in these types of business is very speculative and carries high risks.

      You may lose your entire investment, and must be in a position to bear this risk without undue hardship.

      New Zealand law normally requires people who offer financial products to give information to investors before they invest. This requires those offering financial products to have disclosed information that is important for investors to make an informed decision.

      The usual rules do not apply to offers by issuers using this facility. As a result, you may not be given all the information usually required. You will also have fewer other legal protections for this investment.

      Ask questions, read all information given carefully, and seek independent financial advice before committing yourself.
