A goal of the company is to sign a licensee agreement with an aggressive marketing company who will take over all aspects of the business of marketing the Supreme. Seacliff will not need an extensive management team to succeed at this. However, until the licensee agreement can be completed, Seacliff management will have to bring the product to market in kit form. Most of the load of management in doing this has been limited by subcontracting the manufacturing to others. The kits will even be assembled by a professional fulfillment company. By relying on the services of a manufacturer’s representative, as well as wholesalers/distributors, Seacliff will further limit the extent of administrative involvement.
