Rosafarbenes Nilpferd & Sons Engineering, Inc. (RNSE) has established a strong foothold in a niche technology market for Product Category One* devices. The potential market demand of 180 million units far outstrips the capacity of present suppliers and is growing at a rate of 22% annually. RNSE's success in taking advantage of this boom market is evidenced by its recent growth in sales and profitability. Sales are projected to grow from the first quarter of Year 1 total of $280,000 to $1,600,000 by the end of the first year, and to exceed $14 million by the end of the third year of operations. A similar growth pattern will cause before tax profits to rise significantly by the end of Year 1 and continue increasing through the end of Year 3. These results will be achieved without large additions to fixed assets. A relatively small banking facility will be needed in the form of a line of credit of $150,000-$200,000 to support the necessary growth in current assets, half of which will represent prime corporate receivables.
