What happened at the Shark Tank?

Lovely couple Leslie and Greg have pitched their deal, $1 million for 6% equity of their business. 

Let’s jump into the stats of the business. $2.9 million in sales revenue in 13.5 months and Leslie and Greg expect 409% growth in their business at the end of 2022. According to them, Sunflow costs $70 and sells for $198 and they have a 78% margin from the bottle holder. 

After hearing all, Mr. Daniel states his offer, $1 million for 22.5% of equity rights and Greg starts to explain the future potential of their business and the importance of having a shark to ride along with them. Daniel demands a counter offer but Greg doesn’t respond so Daniel says ‘I’m Out. Mark and Barbara go out next followed by Lori.  

Four sharks are out and the couple still waiting for Mr. Wonderful to make his move.

After a while, Mr. Wonderful made his offer, a $1 million investment for 4% equity plus $5 per item sold as a royalty until the sum reached $ 2 million. 

Greg’s counter offer: same deal with royalty limited to $1 million.

Kevin counters, a $1 million investment for 6% equity with a royalty re-cup of $1 million, and then Greg counters a $1 million investment for 5% equity with a royalty re-cup of $1 million, Kevin says, “Done”.


Leslie and Greg have come into the shark tank offering 6% equity of their business for a $1 million investment. 

As per the stats stated by Leslie, Sunflow has performed well during the last 13.5 months and hence they have a high expectancy to grow in 2022.

Daniel was the first one to steal the deal but Greg was not so impressed by his offer so the consent was void. Mark had issues with high valuation and overconfidence of the two on their business so he and Barbara say he’s ‘Out’. Lori’s not so sure about the consistency of the sales of Sunflow. Hence She says she’s out.

After several offers and counters, Mr. Wonderful says ‘Done’ to $1 million investment for 5% equity with royalty re-cup $1 million.
