Shark Tank Shed Defender Update
- Entrepreneurs: Tyson Walters and Miles Walters
- Business: Dog onesie that prevents shedding
- Ask: $250,000 for 10% equity
- Result: $250,000 for 25% equity
- Shark: Lori Greiner
The sharks could not believe the sales numbers that Tyson and Miles mentioned when asked. After only selling the product for a little over 17 months, they told the sharks that they had $1,200,000 in sales, which comes out to about 25,000 units of their product. The sales came from their own website and Amazon, although Tyson and Miles told the sharks that they were planning on starting the process of wholesaling too.
The patent pending Shed Defender is a onesie that contains the dog’s hair within the suit to reduce the shedding, while still allowing the dog to shed naturally. Perfect solution to contain dog hair in the house, car, or anywhere you don't want to leave a trail of hair! Spend less time sweeping and vacuuming and more time cuddling!
The sharks were impressed with their sales numbers and their margins, especially when they declared that they had nearly 80% margins in place for all nine variations and sizes of their dog onesie that prevents shedding.
As negotiations started, Mark Cuban expressed how impressed he was with Miles and Tyson, but ultimately declared that he didn’t think he could benefit them by making them an offer. He decided to drop out and let the other sharks consider making their own offers. Barbara Corcoran agreed with Mark and decided to drop out because she didn’t believe that it was her type of investment.
Kevin O’Leary decided to make an initial offer of $250,000 for a third of the company. Robert Herjavec offered an identical deal to the duo on the stage, copying the initial offer that Kevin had just made. Lori Greiner was the last shark still in on the negotiations and she quickly undercut the offers of Kevin and Robert by offering to do the same deal except for just 28% equity in exchange for a $250,000 investment.
After a quick counteroffer back to Lori, they ultimately agreed to do $250,000 for 25% equity, allowing Miles and Tyson to strike a deal with Lori.
