20121205 toacp deal summary - rising star china international wine holdings (no mp)

  1. 1. Wednesday, December 05, 2012Rising Star China International Wine Holdings:Consignor of Investment Grade Wines to Mainland ChinaTop of Asia Capital Partners, Inc. (TOACP) seeks to raise investment capital of $100,000 to $200,000 toobtain an equity interest in Rising Star China International Wine Holdings (RSW). RSW is the preferredpartner of the Beijing International Wine Exchange (BIWEX)1, the first and only government sanctionedmarket exchange for fine wines sales within China. The BIWEX was organized and launched this pastsummer with substantial assistance from RSW. The BIWEX’s owners include influential companies fromChina’s financial services and wine sectors2; including CBEX Group (www.cbex.cn) and CITIC Group. TheRSW/BIWEX partnership establishes an on-shore/off-shore vehicle enabling a seamless, highly scalablewine trading platform that’s quickly becoming recognized as the preeminent wine exchange withinmainland China. BIWEX’s stated mission is to supplant the London Fine Wine Exchange (Live-Ex) as theworld’s largest exchange for high-end wines. Given current market projections for Chinese wealthaccumulation and fine wine demand, (e.g., 2011 growth exceeding 49%3), BIWEX’s goal seems possible.RSW was founded to source international fine wines to BIWEX and through private placements toinvestors inside and outside China. RSW’s established inventory includes rare wines worth US$395million from some of the world’s top negociants; including, Joanne Bordeaux, ARVI, LaBergere, Duclot,and Millesime. RSW recently demonstrated the scope of its sourcing capabilities by assembling a20,000 bottle offering consisting of the 2009 Robert Parker “Magic 20” 4. RSW has a firm contract topurchase the entire lot (1,000 cases) for USD$5.86 million with delivery required within the next 3months.5 RSW, in consultation with the BIWEX, Asian wine funds and Chinese investors, plans tocontinuously prepare similar offerings to ensure a steady wine supply to the BIWEX and others. RSWexpects average profit margins of 10 to 15% on the value of wine sold.RSW’s founders include “China veterans” with over 30 years of in-country experience have become thetrusted partners of many Chinese government entities, state-owned-enterprises and localentrepreneurs. The management team is led by RSW’s Managing Director; a well-known former AsianPacific COO for a Swiss-based investment bank. Prior to joining RSW, he completed several US$1bln+deals and developed his firm’s group into an Asian leader while establishing relationships with major PEfirms active in the region. The MD is supported by five senior managers with relevant China and/or wineindustry experiences. The management team is split between offices in Singapore and Beijing.1 http://www.bjiwex.com/ (Chinese only.

  2. 2. Wednesday, December 05, 2012This unique and time-sensitive opportunity has been offered exclusively to TOACP on the basis ofestablished relationships developed during our activities in China and elsewhere. RSW’s managementteam has broader interests in China and views TOACP’s participation as strategic in the sense that itprovides access to TOACP’s management and China advisors.TOACP’s investment in RSW would be used to purchase an equity interest in the company of 1-2% onthe same terms/valuation as offered to the founding outside investors. RSW plans to dividend out 50%of profits on an ongoing basis with the remainder to be used for business expansion. At this time, nospecific exit strategy has been identified. However, the nature of the enterprise ensures multiple exitoptions will likely be available. Presently, management views RSW represents an excellent buy-and-holdinvestment with on-going and rapidly growing income for its investors.If you or someone you know might be interested in participating in RSW, please contact Ed Odenwalder,President, Top of Asia Capital Partners @ 720.253.3200 or edodenwalder@gmail.com.Top of Asia Capital Partners, Inc. 2Proprietary & Confidential
