“With Zinzino we will get a strong partner with great products which we believe will perfectly suit customers in our region”, says Kenneth Koh, CEO and owner of VMA Life.
“Kenneth Koh and VMA Life will be a very important step for Zinzino towards the goal to expand in Asia. We had our sales start in Australia in 2019 and will have our sales start in India during 2020. By the acquisition of VMA Life we will get additional knowledge and competence in the Asian region. By introducing our products and our customer-focused sales concept will we create a leverage effect”, says Dag Bergheim Pettersen, CEO Zinzino.
VMA Life is profitable, and the turnover is approx. 2 million USD. By this cooperation, with Zinzino’s products and business model, Zinzino expects that VMA Life will increase sales already in 2020.
According to the agreement, Zinzino shall, with entry, pay a fixed purchase price of 400.000 USD paid partly (50%) in cash and partly (50%) in newly issued Zinzino shares. The conditional additional purchase prices will base on sales developments during 2020-2023.
