Martin Dimitrov came onto Shark Tank Season 9 to represent his company SnapClips. His unique workout accessory is designed to make it easier than ever to replace the old unreliable weight collars for dumbell bars that you might have lying around. Martin is seeking $150,000 for 15% equity. Let’s see how the negotiations go for Martin before we jump ahead to cover the Shark Tank SnapClips update.

SnapClips’ lifetime sales were very low at less than $32,000 in total gross revenue sales. The low sales caused the sharks to have major concerns about the valuation that Martin placed on his company.

Robert Herjavec and Barbara Corcoran were not interested in making an investment after hearing all of the information, so they decided to drop out.

Lori Greiner wanted to make an offer and decided to tell Martin that she would need 50% equity in exchange for a $150,000 investment.

After some talking, guest shark Alex Rodriguez, Mark Cuban, and Lori Greiner ultimately teamed up to offer $150,000 in exchange for 30% equity. Martin accepted their offer after taking a few moments to consider his options.

Let’s take a look at the SnapClips update to see how Martin Dimitrov and his company are doing today. The deal between Martin and the sharks was finalized, but they eventually departed the business in the months that followed.

In 2018, SnapClips licensed the product to Crossfit. The company continues to remain in business and is doing an estimated $5 million in annual sales.
