Texas Hold’em Poker - a game of luck mixed with skill, making it the gamblers weapon of choice against the odds. Whether online or in person, the card game has a global draw. UK online poker was valued at £329m by Deloitte in 2014. Devilfish Poker Ltd wants to stake its claim to some of the multi-million pound industry by re-launching its recognised UK poker brand. The brand has an illustrious past. With 1000s of games hosted per day at its peak, the previous owners filed revenues of £783,355 with £525,115 gross profit (June 2010). Mismanagement then sunk the company and the distinguished brand lay dormant. Devilfish Poker is now in the hands of Jeff Williams – an experienced seed capital investor who has worked within the small cap public market and who, along with an expert team (see management section), aims to reestablish the brand as a leading UK online poker room. The brand was backed by former professional poker player Dave ‘Devilfish’ Ulliott, who had a glittering career in poker that included a World Series of Poker winner's bracelet. Jeff has already started the ball rolling (or the cards shuffling) in recent months by signing with respected poker network, Ongame, which will host the platform once it relaunches in spring 2015 with a historic database of 10,000 registered players. To drum up more interest and grow the user base, Devilfish has signed a joint venture with Grassroots Poker – a provider of poker tournaments to public houses in the Greater Manchester area. The partnership will channel Grassroots players to the online poker site via larger tournaments. The company will also develop incentive programmes targeted at registered players of Grassroots. The company has all necessary partnerships in place as well as an expert team, who have decades of experience between them, to begin revitalising what was once a strong, dominant poker brand. To ensure the company has the requisite working capital, a figure of £100,000 for 10% equity will be needed, valuing the company at £1 million.

Kingwood-on-Thames Ltd is a company run by experienced businessman James Slater who is part of a truly enterprising family whose interests include amphibious tours in central London and the manufacture of amphibious machines. He’s spearheading the acquisition of River Thames Boat Hire Ltd – a riverboat charter company with an annual turnover of £100,000. After extensive research, James has identified several areas of the Thames Boat Hire business which can be improved on. Having singled out each of the weaknesses, Kingwood-on-Thames will remodel the business to strengthen it from the bottom up, creating new partnerships, enhancing facilities and delivering additional marketing to initially increase the number of annual charters from 50 to 250 over four years. This represents a conservative 35% of the boats potential usage (the company has outlined 728 charters per annum as part of its forecasts). It is expected this will take sales from £100,000 to £1.25m in 4 years. A £300,000 equity deal for 25% of the company is available to investors. James himself will be investing £100,000 of the total amount alongside Funding Tree investors. You can join James as he endeavors to turn a steady, under-appreciated charter company into a more profitable, sought-after business. Plans in brief: - James will hire a dedicated, passionate manager to handle the business and take it from zero marketing to multiple marketing techniques and also drive the creation of new partnerships to increase brand awareness. - A new website featuring efficient contact and booking systems is currently in development by Somerset Website Services. It will be launched in the next few weeks under the Kingwood-on-Thames Ltd (KTL) banner. - New online advertising and increased social media activity and email marketing campaigns. - The remodeling of the business to incorporate high value clients as well as standard clients. This charter business has a unique selling point in its vessel’s historical significance. The Kingswood vessel was one of the 861 ‘little ships’ used for the evacuation of the British Expeditionary Force from Dunkirk in Operation Dynamo between 27 May and 4 June 1940. (www.adls.org.uk). The boat is in excellent condition having completed a maintenance check and survey in spring 2014 by Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA).
