  2. 2. Ahsan Mirza CEO Executive Board Hamza Khatri COO Rachel Sigley CMO Ashneet Kaur CFO Executive Board
  3. 3. Note to Shareholders Twisters’ bikes are built for riders, by riders, and we have been doing it better than anyone since 2004. We understand the need for new technology and how to best design our bikes to our customers satisfaction because we know the customer is the most important part of our business. Our new Quencher bike was built ready to take any degree of abuse you can generate on a daily use, but it is also built tough so that it will last a lifetime. At Twister we take building bikes seriously with our dedication to you, the customer, but also to your communities, the environment and our stakeholders. We are a company of great ethics and standards in which we feel the customers comes first. Quality and customers service are our #1 policy. From leisure bikes to mountain bikes, to jump and trail bikes and more, every Twister bike is tough, fast and fun to ride. Come see what more than six years of building the best bikes can do to your ride. Thank you for being a proud and loyal customer of Twister. Executive Board
  4. 4. "Twisters mission is to serve low-to-middle income families the opportunity to own affordable bicycles.  We hope to have our growth limited by only our imaginations and to have the ability to develop a technically competitive product that suits the customers design needs.  We seek to provide low cost items in high quantities to rapidly expanding and growing low-to-middle income segments.  Twister seeks to provide our product on-time , on-quality , and on-cost .  To meet our customer's needs we strive to continue to keep our production costs down thus enabling us to return those savings to them.  We hope to meet our employee's needs by creating a small community of employees in which to conduct business where hopefully we can make an environment of admiration , trust , and dignity which employees will feel embraced by.  We will do our best to continue to train employees and sell a high enough volume of products to help keep as many jobs available as possible. Twister hopes that we can create strong relations with our distribution and supplier partners.  This can ultimately aid us in getting our products into more stores.  By creating better relations, we also hope to reduce operating costs , allowing us to then return the cost-savings back to our consumers.  In addition, we hope to be able to aid the community by supporting others businesses through supplier relations and being sure to operate in a manner that continues to support the citizens and environment in which we work."

  29. 29. <ul><li>Product development – </li></ul><ul><ul><li>We’ve hit the target market 100% on 4 out of the 5 bikes we’ve developed and hope to continue to hit this mark on our future product developments. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>In keeping good relations with our suppliers we’ve managed to get our raw materials stocking to below 4% of our manufacturing capacity (down from 8% two years ago).  </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Through continuing to increase our relations with our suppliers, we seek to make this percentage even more minimal in the future. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Twister has successfully been working on creating a strong brand image.  This has enabled us to rebound and be back on our way to profitability in the last two years. </li></ul><ul><li>Breakdowns have dropped to .4% from 9.7% and 13.5% two and three years earlier. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>This is from an increase in spending on preventative maintenance. </li></ul></ul>SWOT Strengths
  30. 30. <ul><li>We tried to expand too quickly in the beginning </li></ul><ul><li>We were overspending on advertising in the beginning.  This resulted in our team not receiving a proper return on our investment for each year which led us into bankruptcy. </li></ul><ul><li>We’re in far fewer markets then any of our competitors </li></ul><ul><li>Our awareness and PR are not meeting the standards of the bike market we are competing in. </li></ul><ul><li>We have a significantly large (67.8%) idle time </li></ul><ul><li>Low capital </li></ul>SWOT Weaknesses
  31. 31. <ul><li>Expand our operations abroad </li></ul><ul><li>Since we currently only offer one bicycle, there’s the opportunity available to Twister to venture into other bicycle categories such as racer bicycle. </li></ul><ul><li>There’s the opportunity to move beyond bicycles and offer skateboards, scooters, and rollerblades. </li></ul><ul><li>New outlets of advertising available can enable us to reach a larger target market and with the internet we can reach a larger audience at lower costs. </li></ul>SWOT Opportunities
  32. 32. <ul><li>We have an extremely small market share compared to most of our other competitors and it may be hard to find a way to compete with companies such as Cynical Cycles. </li></ul><ul><li>There’s competitors in every market already, so seeking expansion and attempting to gain a foot in a new market is proving hard. </li></ul>SWOT Threats

  67. 67. <ul><li>For the short term, in order to pay off of our injection loan, we strive to focus on steadily gaining in the market over the next few years and getting back on our feet by attracting customers through brand loyalty and quality bikes. By growing in new, untapped markets we also hope to be able to increase our profits exponentially over the next couple of years. As a result of our past issues with production and debt we lost a lot of relationships with our distributors. By working out our relations and making our products available in more stores we hope to increase our profitability as well as get our name out there. </li></ul>Future Future
  68. 68. <ul><li>In addition to bicycles, we hope to be able to offer a wider variety of accessories and products.  These items would include: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Company shirts, bicycle gloves, and riding apparel. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Bicycle helmets </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Indoor bicycles intended for use by consumers to either get indoor exercise or to cross-train in the off-season. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Our own line of bike care products such as lubes cleaners, tire pumps and bike covers. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Bike accessories such as bicycle locks for added security and reflector lights for consumer safety. </li></ul></ul>Future Future
  69. 69. <ul><li>Launch an interactive website for consumers to use.  </li></ul><ul><ul><li>provide the consumer with information on Twister’s product information </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>create the “ultimate cycle experience”.  </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Our online website will consist of an area where consumers can read about and keep up on the latest information in the bicycle industry from new companies to sporting events taking place.   </li></ul><ul><li>Create a social network for bicycle enthusiasts where they can have an open forum to chat with other cycling fans. </li></ul>Future Future
  70. 70. <ul><li>Over the next several years, Twister hopes to implement a new ERP system.  Implementing an ERP system will help our company to unify our business processes, lower costs so we can provide a better return to our investors, and improve relations and delivery time with our suppliers. </li></ul><ul><li>Twister is looking to expand into foreign markets. At first we will venture in China and India as these areas have large populations and will offer us a significant growth opportunity.  If our initial venture into overseas markets proves to be profitable, we may seek to expand our operations abroad in order to enable us to keep costs low and profits higher.  </li></ul>Future Future
  71. 71. <ul><li>Expand beyond bicycles into other areas of transportation.  </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Scooters </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>rising in popularity over the last few decades and we’d feel it would align well with our company’s strategy.  </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Rollerblades </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Skateboards.  </li></ul></ul>Future Future
  72. 72. <ul><li>After acquiring a bit more capital, Twister seeks to offer the options of creating customizable bikes to our consumers. </li></ul><ul><li>Seek to partner with companies in the creation of themed bicycles.
