After passing out samples to each of the sharks, Saskia talked a little bit about her background working for the NBA, before diving into her company’s financial numbers. In the company’s first six months, Saskia admitted that they had more than $100,000 in gross sales and is projecting about $570,000 in sales by the end of the current year.
The sharks had concerns about finding refrigerated space for the product in retailers, but Saskia said that her company hasn’t experienced any headwinds or fees for entering retailers. She also admitted that her product costs about $3.50 per pouch in stores.
The sharks didn’t seem interested in Saskia’s company and Robert Herjavec dropped out of the negotiations. Unfortunately, many of the remaining sharks were also struggling to convince themselves to make an offer. Lori Greiner and Mark Cuban dropped out without making an offer. With Kevin O’Leary being the final shark in negotiations, he simply wasn’t happy with the financial numbers of Saskia’s company and decided to drop out too.
