As he usually does after pitches, Kevin O’Leary wanted to hear about sales numbers over the last several years. James responded that in 2019, the company had only generated about $5,000 in gross revenue.

That number rose up to about $32,000 in 2020 and more than $250,000 in 2021.

Cincha was projecting to do more than $1 million in sales in 2022 and had already generated more than $800,000 in revenue year-to-date. All sales are direct-to-consumer up to this point.  

A single traditional travel belt costs $4.61 and sells at a price point of $40. James also shared the customer acquisition cost, which comes out to about $29 for an average order.

Guest shark Gwyneth Paltrow, Mark Cuban and Lori Greiner were not interested, but Barbara Corcoran was. She offered $200,000 for 33% equity, but half of the money would only be a credit line instead of cash.

Kevin O’Leary wanted $200,000 for 20% equity and wanted a royalty of $4 per unit until he gets his money back, and then he wanted to keep the royalty at $0.50 in perpetuity after that.

James and Ashley countered Barbara for 25%, and she accepted. What happened after Shark Tank Season 14? Keep reading our Cincha update to find out!
