NEON CRICKET - UNIQUE INVESTMENT OPPORTUNITY
« on: March 06, 2018, 09:36:43 PM »

We've all been there, dreaming of launching our own cricket company until the stark reality of the costs/difficulty involved truly hits home. Well having been in that position myself, I'm delighted to be able to make this investment proposal to you all.

This is your chance to own your own piece of a boutique brand looking to do things a little differently. For what is almost a nominal fee, you can not only become an official legal shareholder, but also a part of something bigger. To take Neon to the next level, I'm looking for between 5 and 25 like-minded cricketers to join the Neon Cricket brand and have a real input into the future of the company. Your opinions consulted, and your voices heard in the future of the Neon Cricket brand.
If this sounds like something that'd be of interest to you, then I invite you to take a browse of the investment opportunity presentation linked below.

In short, from a minimum investment of just 350 you can not only become an official legal shareholder of Neon Cricket Limited, but also receive the following benefit which is likely of most appeal to you all;

COST PRICE FOR LIFE. No gimmicks. Simply cost price Neon Cricket equipment for life.

Naturally in such a public forum the actual nature of cost prices and terms can't be discussed, but I invite you all to read through the document in the first instance. Having had a browse, if this is something you'd be interested in being a part of then simply contact me on investors@neoncricket.co.uk for an initial expression of interest form. Full details will be made available to interested parties at a later date.

Investor presentation link:

If anyone has any queries, then please feel free to email me on investors@neoncricket.co.uk and I'll aim to respond within 24hrs. Please note completion of an expression of interest form is as described and does not constitute a binding agreement in any form. At the current time this is only being advertised to CBF members, but will be extended out to the full Neon Cricket subscriber list in due course.

Thanks mate - as tempting as Nectar points I'll have to pass ha (I've somehow managed to rack up 40s worth as it is, can't bring myself to spend them!)

Just a quick message to thank those who've emailed so far, I'll respond to you all tomorrow so please bare with me!

Just to clarify for those interested, the investment will be a combination of both a % share in the company and the cost price for life benefit - the share cost will effectively pay for itself after a years worth of gear, so the % share is almost a bit of a bonus!

Does that value the company at 35k?

Effectively yes, however the 'cost price for life' element does carry a certain weighting so it's not as straight forward as a simple valuation of 1% x 100 in that respect :)

Presumably the cost price for life aspect limits the volume of kit any particular shareholder can purchase per annum?

Hi mate,

Sounds attractive. Keen to understand how you reached your valuation? Happy to discuss privately.

Correct, the limit is set at a max spend of 1k per annum based off the RRP of the equipment in question (it's on the PDF somewhere!). This figure would also be revised each year to take into account any outside influences (price increases if applicable etc).

Just as an aside should any investor spend the full 1k RRP limit year 1, then whilst I can't discuss specific %'s on a public forum, lets just say they would receive a discount well over the actual share cost...

Great idea!

How much influence would shareholders wield in the product design and decision making process?

Thanks @InternalTraining, good question - whilst obviously I'd still hold the majority share, the idea would be for all shareholders to have a real say. Regular contact would be kept, especially for consultation on new designs/ideas, with the idea being that everyone has a chance to give their input for any new ranges.

With the way things work the 2019 range is already under development as a few on here have seen (I'm aiming for a full launch Oct/Nov as per last season), so it's likely the first real community-designed range would be for the 2020 UK season - but there will still be good opportunity for input even in the first few season!

Ok.

Let me think about this.

You (Neon) and @JK Lewis have a unique opportunity to do things differently addressing real needs of the customers and not beholden to the "conventional" limitations every equipment manufacturer complains about.
