  • 1. Ormita Detroit Regional Market Opening Strictly Confidential Proposal
  • 2.
    • Unproductive or unsold assets are known as "dead capital " and there is an estimated 9.3 trillion dollars of it world-wide.
    • Unsold appointment time, empty hotel rooms, unsold venue passes, unfilled advertising space, rapidly depreciating stock, end-of-line items or oversupplied products all represent lost revenue which otherwise will never be recovered.
    • It is Ormita’s mission to transform this otherwise lost profit into new income, investments and tax benefits for corporations.

    • Barter is the Largest Unregulated Financial Service Industry in the World
    www.ormita.com
      • Non-cash trade, in one form or another, accounts for nearly 30 percent of the world’s total business.
      • 70% of all Fortune 500 companies utilize offset trading.
      • According to the Association of Advertising Agencies, eight out of ten media corporations engage in excess capacity exchange.
      • Approximately 65% of all New York Stock Exchange-listed companies barter.
      • Nearly 400,000 businesses engage in formalised non-cash transactions in the United States.

    • Four Key Benefits of Barter
    www.ormita.com
      • Reduces existing cash costs
    • It is always better to make purchases out of revenue generated from new sales
    • – not existing cash reserves.
      • Creates value from under-performing assets / unsold time or capacity
    • Trade excess capacity for already-budgeted for goods or services.
    • Time sensitive products, space, tickets or services are unrecoverable if not sold.
    • Receive more value than discounting.
      • Lets participants buy goods and services at a discount
    • Use your spare time, excess capacity, depreciating inventory etc to make purchases.
    • The difference between your wholesale cost (cost to make a sale) and your selling price is the discount received.
      • Offers Interest-free, no cash-repayment, finance
    • Zero interest.
    • Repay borrowings out of new sales – not existing cash income.
  • 5.
    • Barter Is a Unique Financial Tool
    www.ormita.com
      • In Switzerland barter accounts for approximately $6 billion USD in transactions every year between almost 80,000 business owners.
        • Barter survives during good times and bad and helps stabilise the wealthiest
        • economies of the world.
      • During Argentina’s economic crisis in the 1990’s more than 2 million members joined the barter movement, performing more than $7 billion USD in transactions.
        • Barter provides an immediate solution to businesses large and small.
      • Pepsi Cola once traded with the Russian Government the rights to their brand and formulas in return for exclusive rights to export Stolichnaya Vodka
        • Barter can be used as a way for businesses to convert their surplus into new
        • investments.
      • The Governments of Australia, Thailand, South Africa, China, Mexico etc all regularly swap millions of dollars in commodities every month
        • Barter can conserve cash and provide profitable outcomes.
  • 6.
    • Bartering Helps Save Cash
    www.ormita.com
      • Ormita customers do not replace cash customers, instead they are incremental (new) income.
      • We bring new customers to a business through our own marketing activities.
      • These new customers make purchases and generate new revenue.
      • This additional revenue is used to pay for a businesses existing costs , expansions, improvements and new acquisitions.
      • Depending on your industry type businesses are allowed to charge part of their transaction in cash
    Ormita is income supplemental to the cash already being generated by selling to existing cash-paying customers. Ormita saves cash by offsetting expenses. It is not meant as a replacement for cash and cannot be used to pay Sales Tax and fixed expenses. Once those expenses are covered, however, by existing cash business, then every additional customer through is new revenue, with a higher margin of profit.
  • 7.
    • Bartering Supports Local Businesses
    www.ormita.com
    • Ormita:
    • Targets businesses which have reached a certain level of cash sales but which still have the capacity to expand output - without needing to increase their cash costs to do so.
    • Provides members the ability to trade their excess capacity or unsold inventory for products and services they need - without the need for cash.
    • Acts as a centralised broker for trading excess capacity by operating an online and brokered trade floor.
    • Promotes the trade of excess assets by arranging local networking meetings, producing an electronic and printed membership directory, sending email and SMS broadcasts of latest deals and distributing regular newsletters to participants.
    • Operates a bank-like system for trade transactions so that members do not have to engage in direct “barter”, thereby allowing them to sell to one member for trade credits and buy from another with the same trade credits.
    • Allows for trade in areas which are “rich” in skills and assets but “poor” in cash.
  • 8.
    • Provides a Way to Collect Debt
    www.ormita.com
      • Ormita offers a unique programme which allows business members to
      • trade bad debts / monies owed to them for products or services which
      • are needed to reduce their current cash costs.
      • Allows creditors to take products in lieu of cash if there are no other recovery mechanisms available.
      • Creditors can exchange recovered products for goods and/or services they need.
      • Reduces costs for collection, legal fees & interest.
      • Reduces the risk (unpaid bills, doubtful collections etc).
      • Maximises the value of what is returned.
      • Helps participants reduce their ongoing cash expenses so they can pay future bills from cash saved, and in a more timely manner.
  • 9.
    • Helps Businesses Beat The Recession
    www.ormita.com During periods of economic down-turn we can provide businesses the ability to:
    • Retain value
    • Turn unsold time or assets into something of immediate value
    • Build a solid asset base
    • Retain employees
    • Retain customers
    • Expand their market-share
    • Attract customers away from the competition
    • Offer loyalty ‘rewards’ to existing customers
    • Trade their excess capacity for advertising / marketing
    • Offer more products / services
    • Allow businesses to compete against the ‘big guys’
    • Offer low-cost incentives and give-aways
    • Buy locally – and at a discount
    • Build a network of businesses buying and selling to one another
    • Sell goods/services acquired via barter at a lower price than standard retail
    • Provide a new referral outlet
    • Reduce their cash output
    • Save on borrowings
    • Purchase goods and/or services using their own products – not existing cash revenues
    • Repay debt with barter
    • Pay staff-rewards in gift certificates etc
    • Fund client entertainment and travel through barter
  • 10.
    • Despite Being 30% of all World Financial Trade
    • Most Barter Exchanges Are Poorly Run
    www.ormita.com
    • Incorrect mix of customers (not treated as a separate economy)
    • Members not knowing what is available and lack of education
    • Exchange owners getting the good products and services first
    • Existing exchanges are stuck with legacy customers
    • Lack of Essential Goods and Services
      • Barter is only useful if you use it to
      • acquire needed goods or services.
    • “ The Company also has the ability to spend trade dollars with no obligations to the exchange . The Company has historically spent more trade dollars than it has earned ”
    • Wayne Sharpe, Chief Executive Officer & Founder – Bartercard. 30 September 2005
    • Exchange owners constantly spend money they do not own
    • Lack of sensible credit management policies and procedures
    • No enforcement of the rules and regulations
    • Exchange networks being run by “ housewives ” not economists
    • Inflation
      • Everyone has “barter” dollars but
      • there is still nothing to buy.
  • 11.
    • Despite Being 30% of all World Financial Trade
    • Most Barter Exchanges Are Poorly Run
    www.ormita.com
    • Trade between different barter exchanges is rare because exchange owners prefer to keep “the good stuff” for themselves / own members
    • The largest exchanges in the world ($6 billion USD turn-over per annum) shun the only two “associations” whose memberships are severely limited
    • Lack of a Common Platform
      • No coherent network of providers.
    • Caused by a lack of “community” involvement / understanding
    • Inflation, poor management, historical issues have led to a perception that bartering may have “less value” than federally issued money
    • Lack of Market Penetration
      • In some countries penetration has reached 30% or more in the past.
    • Many exchanges charge monthly fees – even if they did not help the customer perform any transactions that month
    • High joining fee, high annual fees, interest on borrowing fees etc
    • High Cost To Use
      • Typically 12% minimum in cash commission to use.
    • Lack of fiscal management / enforcement of policies
    • Imbalance between supply and demand (not really a parallel economy)
    • Cost to generate a “barter dollar” differs by industry (not really a parallel economy because barter dollars are not as readily convertible as cash)
    • Over-Pricing
      • Sellers charging more in barter.

    • Structure of the Business Model
    www.ormita.com Ormita acts as a clearinghouse for the trade of excess capacities, goods and services through a combination of online e-commerce, transaction processing, 24 hour telephone brokering and independent licensees. Rather than promoting direct trade between participants the Company brokers trades through a centralized trade platform. Just like any brokerage firm, Ormita receives a cash commission on each transaction. 3 This ledger system utilises a “trade credit” as a method of accounting with 1 Trade Credit = $1. ( NB. Trade credits are also referred to as Barter Dollars by our competitors). 2 Transactions are recorded in a centralized “ledger” which records the value of the items purchased (debit) and sold (credit) - much like a clearinghouse does for stocks, or a commercial bank does for checks. 1
