Why invest in The Cheeky Panda?
Want to own your very own piece of the panda pie?
You hear a lot about ‘diversifying your portfolio’ and making your money ‘do more’. So much so that it can be a little confusing at times. Well, what if we told you that it’s super easy to own a part of the brand you know and love? (that’s us, by the way).
We’re leading the charge when it comes to a green economy, and we want you along for the ride.
Read on to learn why you should invest in The Cheeky Panda and exactly how you do it.
You need to know why you’re investing in us, right?
If you DO decide to invest, first of all - thank you. Second, we can guarantee that you’re not investing in a company committed to only growing in a business sense.
That’s because, as you may well know, sustainability is at the forefront of what we do.
As a proud B Corp, we’re passionate about balancing people, planet and profit. That’s why, since we started in 2016, we’ve saved 250,000 trees so far. Not only that, but we’ve also saved 31,000 tons of carbon (the stuff that’s causing things to heat up) from entering the Earth’s atmosphere.
We work with numerous charities – most notably those part of our Earth (World Land Trust), Ocean (Whale and Dolphin Conservation) & People (Toilet Twinning) initiative – who we care about deeply because they make a huge difference to the world.
We’ve made a commitment to only use natural, sustainably sourced, FSC-approved bamboo which causes significantly less damage to the planet than using tree-based material.
Our entire manufacturing and delivery process is also carbon balanced, and we’re working on making our entire range plastic-free (where possible!).
So, you’re not just investing in a business solely focussed on making money. We actually care about the planet and safeguarding its future.
Green Economy Credentials
We believe that, if we were 10x larger, our positive impact on the planet, global conservation efforts and green economy credentials would only continue to grow. The more bamboo products we make, the more trees we save – simple.
Not only would you be putting your money into a company with clear green credentials, you’d also be investing in a company with extremely high growth. ‘Hypergrowth’ is judged as a company which grows at over 40% CAGR (which stands for Compound Annual Growth Rate). Our CAGR over the last 4 years has been 204%.
Our route to taking The Cheeky Panda public is clear - we are working with our advisors on all the pre-IPO checklists and public market approvals. It’s all very exciting.
Green IPOs are a huge commodity to the market and pioneering business like us tend to perform extremely well. Two examples of similar brands who performed incredibly well are Beyond Meat and Oatly. We hope to replicate their performance!
The shares we’re offering are all EIS (Enterprise Investment Scheme). This basically means that they’re super tax efficient and that there will be no capital gains after 3 years. Read more about that here.
