Four Year International Deal With French Company Zen & O Could See Early Completion at Current Production Rate
MIAMI, FL–(Marketwire – July 28, 2010) – Simulated Environment Concepts (
“We are preparing our third shipment of SpaCapsules to Zen & O,” said Dr. Ella Frenkel, Chairman and CEO of Simulated Environment Concepts, Inc (SE Concepts). “This is a strong indication of the SpaCapsule’s success in France, not only as a highly seductive relaxation vehicle, but as a well regarded tool to aid in weight loss and cellulite reduction.”
Zen & O, which planned to crawl before running, seems to already be at a fast-paced walk. The French distributor’s roll out schedule for 2010 initially consisted of only 25 of the 250+ units, but at the current pace will double the distribution estimate. This pace would put sales estimates for the French distributor well over 100 machines in 2011.
Stephan Tournier, President of Zen & O, stated, “We are very happy with the opportunity to work with SE Concepts by distributing the SpaCapsule in France. We have generated a significant amount of interest in just six months, and we’re just getting started.”
“We have successfully begun to install the SpaCapsule within the Lady Fitness Franchise in Paris, Lyon, and Luxembourg,” Mr. Tournier continued. “Weight loss and cellulite reduction is big business here. Within our health and fitness circles, the SpaCapsule is seen as a post workout apparatus that both relaxes and calms the mind and body while continuing to effectuate weight loss and tackle undesired cellulite. Response from our clientele, and particularly women, has been overwhelmingly positive.”
Tournier concluded, “We have also been successful at placing the SpaCapsule in many of the prominent malls around France and intend to increase our scope of distribution after attending one of the year’s largest pan-European cosmetic shows in October.”
With the anticipated increase in distribution, SE Concepts could realize the total value of its multi-million dollar agreement with Zen & O twelve to fifteen months earlier than expected — possibly increasing yearly cash flows from this contract significantly. The company also believes that a similar situation could possibly play out with their new UAE distributor, I. SEPTA Co., LTD.
Dr. Ilya Spivak, Marketing Director at SE Concepts, said, “We’re planning on pulling out all the stops. We will diligently strive to not only accommodate the increase in production capacity at our Miami factory but to achieve greater financial benefit in the process. We are hiring new assembly personal, increasing our inventory levels and making considerations toward additional means to produce an even higher quality product, faster and at lower cost. Ultimately, we will be able to expedite the shipping of new orders which will assist us in securing the current market penetration we’re enjoying abroad.”
To date, the company has maintained a steady sales pace, focusing on fortifying its business model. With approximately 60 orders in the pipeline, and less than a third of those belonging to Zen & O, SE Concepts anticipates possibly exceeding its 2010 milestone while looking forward to a very prosperous 2011.
