THE PROBLEM WE WITNESS

Consumption-oriented lifestyle and the pursuit of novelties make us buy more and more computer hardware every year. One of the effects of such actions is a significant shortening of the life cycle of electronics and this translates into an increase in the generated electro-waste.

The production of a new computer> requires:


  • 1500 l of water

  • 240 kg of coal

  • 22 kg of chemicals

  • and many other materials
  • A total of 1.8 tons of different raw materials* *Kick the habbit, UNEP, 2008

THE SOLUTION WE OFFER

With such an enormous use of resources, it is becoming increasingly important to extend the service life of products and build a closed-loop economy. For 16 years, our company has been concerned not only with the quality of refurbished computers, but also with the environment. Thanks to the work of our specialists, we are able to extend the life cycle of IT equipment up to four times.

Microsoft Registered
Refurbisher

We were one of the first companies in Poland to obtain the Microsoft Registered Refurbisher status, which proves that the quality of our regenerated computers meets the highest world standards.

Business Model

What we do

We are involved in professional refurbishment and distribution of high quality computer equipment. Our offer includes equipment of the world's largest manufacturers: Dell, Lenovo, HP, Kyocera, Fujitsu. We own a Warehouse and Distribution Centre in Częstochowa. Additionally, we develop a network of retail stores under our brand name, ZIKOM Computer Outlet. Thanks to cooperation with Microsoft, the leader in PC software production, we offer Windows licenses for refurbished computers in both commercial and educational versions.

Thanks to the hybrid sales model (online + stationary stores) we are able to reach a much wider group of customers. In the used PC segment, the ability to see the equipment with your own eyes is highly important. We want to use the synergy effect in which one sales channel supports the other.

The Stores and the Internet

Through these channels we reach retail customers and local entrepreneurs. Each month we carry out several hundred transactions, with their value ranging from a few to several thousand zlotys.
Sales through these channels now account for 70% of our revenue

Commercial Department

Professional sales specialists provide support to resellers and corporate clients. Every year we supply IT equipment to tens of large institutions (schools, hospitals, corporations). Thanks to these channels we are able to handle transactions worth from 5 to even 300 thousand zlotys for the purchase of 400-600 devices at a time. Sales department sales currently account for 30% of total sales.

Service

Thanks to excellent technical support and extensive access to spare parts we are able to perform almost any repair.
Annually, we carry out over 1000 repairs worth 110 000 PLN in our technical department.
We constantly cooperate with many companies for which we are a supplier of spare parts for computers, laptops and telephones.

Franchise

We focus on cooperation with entrepreneurs who have their own sales points. For relatively small license fees we offer a proven business model and access to an extensive amount of professionally refurbished equipment.
By 2021 we intend to open at least 50 partner shops throughout the country. Based on research, experience and financial analyses, we estimate that with such a number of establishments, we are able to generate an annual profit on franchise fees amounting to PLN 150.000.
Additionally, the chain of 50 stores will allow to generate revenue from sales at the level of PLN 10 million annually, which at the current margin will result in a PLN 3.5 million profit on sales.

Market and Competition

E-commerce market

Data in the Statista Digital Market Outlook report show that Poland is ranked 13th in the ranking of the fastest growing e-commerce markets in the world. By 2022, its value is expected to increase by PLN 22 billion.

Franchise market

According to Profit System, the franchise market in Poland is growing steadily by several percent every year and the trend is not likely to change. At the end of 2017, there were 1212 franchise systems with the total number of outlets reaching almost 76 thousand.

Used computers market

Our estimates show that the value of the used computers market in Poland reaches PLN 7 billion and is mainly managed by small companies employing up to 10 people.

Potential of franchisees

According to data from the Central Statistical Office, in August 2019 in Poland there were over 6 thousand registered companies whose main business profile was computer sales. We want to reach such companies with our franchise offer.
The largest companies specializing in IT/household appliances and audio/video devices have networks of 200-300 outlets. Currently, large chains of stores with refurbished equipment do not exist on the Polish market. This shows how huge the potential of this market is.

INVESTMENT OBJECTIVES

We have been operating on the market for over 16 years and in recent months we have been testing a franchise-based sales network model. We have extensive experience and infrastructure which can maintain a chain of over 70 stores. As you can see, we are ready for dynamic development. Thanks to you, we can grow our business even faster.

The capital raised will be allocated to:

  • PLN 1 200.000 (60%) - expanding the inventory.
    40% - mobile phones
    40% - PCs and laptops
    20% - server equipment
    Our experience shows that only by expanding our assortment, using already existing sales channels, will we be able to almost immediately increase the company's revenue by nearly 40%.
  • PLN 600.000 (30%) - development of sales channels
    By the end of 2021, we want to significantly increase zikom.pl online store sales and expand the retail chain to 50 stores. The main expenses in this segment will be spent on further expansion of the zikom.pl store and its intensive promotion in search engines and social media. The development of the stationary stores chain will require, first of all, new personnel. We want to hire two additional specialists who will be responsible for acquiring partners and guiding them through the process of establishing a business.
  • PLN 200.000 (10%) - development of the production department
    We want to create two additional testing positions, which requires the purchase of additional software licenses for hardware audit and create a brand new position for professional refurbishment of computer and laptop cases.

Dividend

The Company plans to make significant investments until 2021. If the Company's financial situation remains at a desired level, we will want to pay dividends. The payment of the dividend shall be made on the basis of a decision of the General Meeting of Shareholders.

Sale of Shares

You can sell your shares at any time at your own discretion and at your own value.

Stock exchange

Our goal is to enter the New Connect market by 2024, and if capitalization allows, to enter the main WSE market. In that case, the shares will become liquid tradables.

Discount

Additionally, when you buy 10 shares you will receive a discount coupon which can be used in our online store - zikom.pl.

FAQ

Each investor will receive a number of one-time discount coupons corresponding to the number of purchased packages. The prizes in the form of Investor Cards and Laptops from our offer are awarded on the basis of the total value of the investment.

The price of a single share is low, so we wanted to encourage investors to buy more shares. The sale of a single share would exceed the value of the share itself, for example, because of the need to send a share ownership certificate by registered mail.

Yes, we would like to be a dividend-yielding company, but by 2021 the Company plans to make significant investments. If the Company's financial situation remains at a desired level, we will want to pay dividends. The payment of the dividend shall be made on the basis of a decision of the General Meeting of Shareholders.

Currently, Grupa ZIKOM sp. z o.o. Is the majority shareholder of ZIKOM S.A. In the nearest future both companies will be merged and the whole activity will be handled by ZIKOM S.A. We hope that this can be done within 12 months after the end of the issuance.

Yes, we will establish a special group for shareholders on Facebook after the end of the issuance. The group will serve as a place, where information concerning the shipment of shares and up-to-date news on the company's activities will be shared. We hope that the Facebook group will create a good environment for discussions concerning the future of the company.

Yes, we are planning to enter NewConnect by 2024, and if capitalization allows it, the main market of the WSE.

Even if we do not manage to acquire the full amount, we will pursue our goals according to a pre-determined strategy. Perhaps we will not be able to achieve all of the goals at once. Part of the planned investments will be financed by the generated profit, the remaining goals will be financed by issuing bonds.

Yes, we would like to invite you to contact us directly regarding this matter. Please send us your questions about financial information to our e-mail address on the emission website, in the "Discussion" section.

Crowdinvesting gives us a lot of opportunities. Apart from obtaining financing, we also want to build a community of ambassadors for our idea of building a closed-circuit economy. We also hope that, thanks to the issuance, we will be heard by many people who will become our customers in the future. In our opinion, there is currently no other form of financing that would bring us as many benefits as crowdinvesting.

Absolutely! You can purchase as many shares as you like.

Packages shall be allocated according to the total number of shares purchased during the entire duration of the issuance, rather than a one-off purchase. This means that a person who buys 10 shares three times will also receive a package available to those who bought 30 shares. It does not apply to one-time discount coupons, which are granted each time for the purchase of an appropriate package.

It is possible to buy company shares by foreign investors. Investors residing in the European Union (as well as in Norway, Liechtenstein, Iceland, Switzerland and other EU dependent countries) should select SEPA Payments at the time of choosing their payment method from the tPay payment provider. For non-EU investors, it is necessary to contact the company directly in order to obtain the transfer details.

Yes, an investor can sell their shares. It is enough to fill in the purchase agreement form during the transaction. The company should also be informed of such a transaction in order to enter the change in the share register. Sale of shares or dividend payment by the company are both taxable. When a sale of shares takes place, the seller must pay an income tax of 19% on the profit from the sale. The buyer accounts for the purchase independently, paying the tax on civil law transactions (PCC).
