​​​​​​* All data according to the National Confectioners Association 2017 annual report

The Company operates a leading direct-to-consumer candy subscription service, i.e. the D2C business segment, delivering delicious, premium candies at exceptional value. This arm of the business generated US$8.4M in revenue and US$3.4M in gross profit in CY17. The Company will continue to balance the need win market share and scale top-line revenue against being profitable.

The Company recently rolled out its business-to-business (B2B) business segment in July 2018, selling its candies wholesale to specialty market retailers across the U.S. Significant traction has been achieved in this business segment and revenues are growing at a rapid pace, underpinned by tier one clients that are repurchasing frequently.

The D2C business segment has played an important role in the Company’s journey, allowing it to achieve economies of scale, optimise the B2B offering and reduce the risk of product obsolescence.
It is highly likely that monthly revenues in the business segment will outpace a growing D2C business segment by early CY20. This is expected to in-turn drive demand in the D2C business segment as the ultimate retail customers in the B2B business segment are driven to the Company’s e-commerce subscription website

2015 - Proof of Concept

✔ Tested the business model to confirm all key components of a highly scalable business were present in order to validate the model and justify further investment 

2016 – 2017 - Build infrastructure & Validate Scalability 

✔ Built out top executive team, proprietary subscription platform, supply chain capabilities and quickly grew to 20,000+ recurring monthly members
2018 (Q1 – Q3) - Focus on Unit Economics and a path to Profitability

✔ Increased average order value (AOV) by 20% & gross profit by 35% on a per shipment basis
​​​​​​✔ Increased customer ROI & lifetime value despite 25% increase in customer acquisition costs
✔ Lowered monthly cash burn on flat revenue due to all unit economic improvements
Unit economics have consistently improved over time, allowing the business to achieve maximum impact at scale. Further opportunities exist to reduce COGS and improve margins via manufacturing automation.

Further growth opportunities in the D2C business segment exist by further scaling user acquisition as well as through the introduction of Amazon subscriptions (live in September 2018), gifting and corporate subscriptions. 

Since July 2018, the Company has shipped or received orders for ~US$400,000 of product and ~US$600,00 in total commitments as part of the B2B business segment to 300 unique customers.

In mass market retailers such as supermarkets and petrol stations, candy is almost always seen at the checkout. Candy is a high turnover product, has high margins, doesn’t compete with core merchandise, adds incremental revenue to the customer’s purchase and has a 97% household penetration rate in the U.S.*
Operations of the Company’s B2B business segment were formally launched in July 2018. Since then, the Company has exceeded internal forecasts with just two full-time sales representatives.  
Importantly, over 50% of speciality market retailers have reordered product, demonstrating product sell-through. The Company anticipates that the revenues of the B2B business segment will exceed a growing D2C business segment on a monthly run rate in early CY20.
* All data according to the National Confectioners Association 2017 annual report
After launching the D2C business segment in CY15, the Company tested acquiring customers online at scale. After achieving 20,000 recurring monthly subscribers, the focus turned towards improving unit economics (increasing AOV, customer retention and LTV) and gross margins while reducing monthly cash burn in CY18. 
The Company also allocated more capital towards the B2B business segment in 2018, which has grown considerably since commencement. The B2B business segment requires more inventory to be held on hand in anticipation of strong demand from large retail customers.  
This has resulted in capital being allocated away from customer acquisition in the D2C business segment in the short-term, in order to build key pillars for growth in the B2B business segment over the long-term
Importantly, gross profit has leaped 20.5% YoY, holding the Company in good stead as revenue significantly scales in CY19 and beyond.
