Contracts and Other Holdings
CMI Holdings has contracted with EasyDVD.com ( http://www.easydvd.com )
, to provide technical support, maintenance and fulfillment services. EasyDVD is nearly finished with development, and is preparing for a mass market advertising campaign, on and off line. The Company will provide the database updates and ship all sales to the end consumer. CMI Holdings has an equity stake in EasyDVD.
CMI Holdings was hired to do design, fulfillment and maintenance for Big Monster Toys, an e-commerce web site specializing in the import of Japanese toys and products. The most visible of these properties is the Pokemon license from Nintendo. Under the agreement, CMI Holdings will be responsible for web site development, upgrades and growth. CMI is to receive $400,000 in the first year from Big Monster Toys and 20 percent of the retail transactions. CMI also gains a 20 percent equity stake in the company. The web site is under construction.
CMI has developed a toy drive web site for the San Francisco Boys and Girls club. The site took donations for an evening fund-raiser at the Union Square FAO Schwarz, and provided an online way for donors to purchase toys for the kids served by the Boys & Girls Club. CMI reports that the site is being considered for national recognition and possible awards at the annual Boys & Girls Club national conference, and may be used by the national chapter as a fund-raiser prototype for clubs nationwide. Estimates indicate that such widespread use of the prototype could easily result in over $3 million of purchasing through CMI in the Christmas season alone. The Company has retained ownership rights to the URL and the business.
CMI Holdings Group has recently agreed to provide online product fulfillment for AnimeDepot.com ( http://www.AnimeDepot.com
), to supply all manner of hard to find Anime (Japanese animation products - CDs, toys, DVDs and videos) "This is a lot of niche stuff we're getting, not what you'll find at Walmart," says Rojek. "These include items that had small manufacturing runs in the low thousands of units. Some gorgeous action figures from the Akira movie for example."
While comic book buyers tend to be about 80% male, according to Rojek, he says Anime attracts a lot more women. "The anime customers are almost 50% women."
The buzz is CMI Holdings is close to announcing some huge News related to some cutting edge technology!
