Shark Tank LeGlue Update

The sharks were immediately impressed with the utility patent that Tripp Phillips had for his product, but there were still questions to be answered. Only time would tell if he would be able to defend himself in front of each of the five sharks.
Enjoy your building masterpieces for longer with Le-Glue, the non-permanent glue that holds your building blocks together -- but not forever. Safe for use with all building blocks, including Lego, Mega Blocks and Nano Blocks.

In addition to the reasonable sales numbers, they were also pleased to hear that the product has great margins. While it took less than fifty cents to make, they were currently selling it online on their own website for $9.00 per unit of LeGlue.
Kevin O’Leary started out by making an offer to LeGlue, suggesting that he’d put up the $80,000 and help the company get off the ground. With licensing as the primary objective, Tripp Phillips had himself his first offer from a shark in the tank. In addition to the $80,000 in cash, LeGlue would have to offer 20% in equity to Kevin.
Daymond was the second shark to make an offer to LeGlue, suggesting that he would do a deal for $80,000 in cash while also taking a solid 25% of the company. Lori Greiner and Mark Cuban felt like they couldn’t make a competitive offer to LeGlue, so they ultimately went out after Kevin and Daymond made their offers. A deal would be made with Kevin O’Leary when Tripp Phillips agreed to partner with him.
