Pandaloon Update | Shark Tank Season 9

Pandaloon went viral when Eugenia Chen made a video of her puppy wearing a panda costume. She was inspired to come onto Shark Tank Season 9 after designing a collection of pet costumes for dogs. Eugenia asked for $60,000 in exchange for 20% equity in her company. The sharks seemed to get a kick out of the demonstration but were they willing to make an offer. Let’s have a look back at the pitch and check in on a Pandaloon update.

Kevin O’Leary didn’t believe in the idea behind the company and decided to be the first shark to drop out without making an offer.

Mark Cuban also believed he wasn’t the right fit for the investment, so he dropped out as well.

Lori Greiner felt that the target audience for this type of product was too niche, so she couldn’t convince herself to make an offer.

However, Daymond John expressed interest and offered $60,000 in exchange for 35% equity. He also told Eugenia that 10% of his purchased equity would be donated to animal charities.

Guest shark, Sara Blakely, was also interested and wanted to make an identical offer. However, Eugenia ultimately accepted Daymond’s offer.

Our Pandaloon update is exciting as we found that annual revenues have skyrocketed to more than $1 million per year.

Pandaloon is very much still in business and thriving with the support of Daymond. He also kept his word and donated a portion of his equity profits to animal rescue charities.
