MDM GROUP AG pulls up plans to go public

Meggen, Switzerland, 2017-Feb-14 — /REAL TIME PRESS RELEASE/ — MDM GROUP AG’s IPO will now take place in the second quarter of 2017 and not at the end of the year. The company aims to generate fresh capital by going public, which will allow it to invest additional funds in merchandise trading.

Retail investors will also be able to easily benefit from the company’s business model.

High revenues are generated in the retail sector in Germany every year.

Gross profit margins are particularly interesting for investors.

They often average 30 percent.

MDM GROUP AG works in this market segment. Specifically, the group mostly trades in textiles, remainders, specialty items, and merchandise from insolvency proceedings.

MDM GROUP AG has already recorded high profits in this segment.

In the international retail segment, the company’s revenues have grown by around 400 percent in the last two years alone.

The company can already record profits when making purchases. The merchandise, such as textiles, remainders, specialty items, and goods from insolvency proceedings from many top manufacturers are bought in at very favorable conditions.

The high purchasing volumes mean that savings of up to 90 percent compared to the regular wholesale price are standard.

In addition to low purchase prices for goods, in 2017 the company is also planning to purchase two top textile brands which will extend its product offering even further and will also allow the group to directly impact prices.

Thanks to its unique distribution network, the company can resell the purchased goods in a short period.

In this regard, the group works together with a large number of online distribution partners and can thus always select the most efficient marketing channel for the products.

This allows the company to not only turn over the goods quickly, but also to realize the maximum income from their sale.

The MDM GROUP purchases and sells goods every month, thus turning over the invested amounts several times.
Profits can be realized with every transaction.

The company does not receive investments from bank loans, but via subordinated loans.

Private individuals can lend the company money and receive interest in return.

The interest is fixed and agreed in advance and currently totals nine percent according to the company’s information.

Interest of up to 20 percent is even possible for special programs.

About MDM GROUP AG
MDM GROUP is a Swiss company which invests in all types of products.

The company has specialized in trading with textiles, remaining stock and special items, as well as goods from insolvency proceedings.

The business principle is to acquire the goods at substantially reduced prices of up to 90 percent less than the regular wholesale price.

As a result, the company records high profit margins.

Private individuals can invest in this business via subordinated loans.

Remuneration with fixed interest rates is agreed in this regard.

In addition, in future the MDM Group will participate in the luxury car segment.
Extensive negotiations in this regard are already being held with one of the best known car dealers and the head of sales in Germany.

Details of this will be published soon.

Vivier Chief Executive, Luigi Wewege Announces New Book: The Digital Banking Revolution

AUCKLAND, NEW ZEALAND and COLUMBIA, SOUTH CAROLINA and MADRID, SPAIN, 2016-Dec-21 — /EPR Network/ — Luigi Wewege’s latest book, The Digital Banking Revolution, shares his inside perspective on how financial technology companies are rapidly transforming the traditional retail banking industry through disruptive innovation.

In The Digital Banking Revolution, Wewege provides a look at how over the past decade financial service innovations have contributed to a completely new way in which customers are able to bank, threatening the status quo of traditional retail banks, and redefining a banking model which has been in place for generations.

Luigi’s book presents the ways these new technological advancements have facilitated the rapid emergence of digital banking firms and FinTech companies, leading to established banks being forced to swiftly increase their pace of digital adoption to stay relevant, and stop mass client attrition to these agile financial start-ups.

“These threats come at an inopportune time for banks due to mature markets currently experiencing stagnant growth. This coupled with decreasing profit margins due to the competitive pricing of new entrants, and financial customer loyalty becoming ever increasingly more tenuous,” said Wewege.

Supported by numerous illustrations, the book spans a diverse range of topics from big data analytics and mobile payments to the evolving behaviors of financial consumers. The Digital Banking Revolution concludes with Luigi providing his predictions in the book’s final chapter, which is titled The Future of Banking. In this chapter, he outlines how he believes financial services are likely to evolve, and be conducted going forward.

The book is currently available for purchase online at Amazon.com in Kindle and paperback versions, as well as being offered via a number of other major online booksellers.

Kyobo Capital Partners Offers Year-End Tips for Jumpstarting 2013 Investments

Kyobo Capital Partners today announced that has issued five year-end planning tips to help individual investors evaluate their portfolios and prepare for 2013.

“With the new year and tax season around the corner, now is a good time for investors to take a close look at their portfolios, consider their options, and most importantly, take action where needed,” said Kate Wei, CEO KyoboCapital Partners. “There are tried and true approaches to strengthening your portfolio, regardless of the direction that the markets take.”

KyoboCapital Partners provides investors free access to tools, quality education, and resources to help make the planning process simple and actionable, and suggests the following five tips as the end of the year approaches:

•  Tune up your portfolio. First things first, make sure you’re maintaining a well-balanced, diversified portfolio that is based on your financial needs and goals, time horizon and risk tolerance. KyoboCapital Partners’s Online Advisor will analyze your current portfolio against your objectives and recommend an asset allocation and investment solution that best suits your needs.

•  Start saving now. While IRA contributions are permitted through the tax filing deadline, making a contribution early can provide additional tax-deferred growth potential.

•  Consider a Roth IRA or Roth conversion. Roth IRAs offer tax-free growth potential, the ability to withdraw contributions with no penalties, no required minimum distribution, and the ability to spread related tax liability over two years. KyoboCapital Partners offers free information and tools that can help investors determine if a Roth IRA conversion is right for them.

•  Manage capital gains and losses. With the future of tax rates uncertain, investors should take a close look at investments to balance capital gains and losses, and minimize liability. Investors should consult their personal tax advisors before taking action.

•  Get in the holiday spirit, and give. Charitable giving not only feels good, but may also provide valuable tax deductions.
