The drink is designed to be a healthier alternative to the sparkling waters already on the market. Additionally, their beverages are free of artificial sweeteners and have zero calories.

Prior to appearing on Shark Tank, things have been going well for Aura Bora. It’s already being sold in almost 500 retail stores and online.

It currently costs them $0.57 to make a can of Aura Bora and they sell it to retailers for $1.15, giving them a 50% margin.

Further, during the Aura Bora Shark Tank pitch, Paul and Maddie share that they already have $200,000 in sales year to date. Further, they are expecting to attract more retailers and end the year at around $500,000 in sales.

By the end of next year, Paul and Maddie are anticipating doing over $2 million in sales.

Lori Greiner shared that she liked the product but just wasn’t passionate about it and decided to drop out.

Guest shark Daniel Lubetzky thought the sparkling water market was a bit too niche and dropped out.

Mark Cuban liked the product but felt that dealing with high-volume stock would be difficult to keep up with and dropped out.

Luckily, Aura Bora’s pitch gained the interest of two sharks, leading to two separate offers from Kevin O’Leary and Robert Herjavec.

Kevin was interested in a royalty deal and offered $150,000 for 5% equity and a $0.05 royalty until he was paid back $300,000.

On the flip side, Robert wanted straight equity and offered $150,000 for 12% equity.

After thinking it through and some negotiations, Aura Bora leaves Shark Tank with a $200,000 for 15% equity deal from Robert.
