Kevin O’Leary asked what market they were chasing, and they confirmed that they cater primarily to pets and pet owners. Mark Cuban wanted to figure out what made their products stand out, with an assist from Robert Herjavec stating that there are plenty of all-natural lines available on the market.

Stephanie and Laura replied that they only use 100% active ingredients and no water, unlike many other products from other lines. Lab testing confirmed that the Wondercide products can quickly and efficiently eliminate bed bugs, ticks, and fleas.

This information started to get the sharks’ attention, but they became impressed with the figures. Laura and Stephanie stated that they had $4 million in sales, with $3.5 million projected for the current year.

Around 75% of Wondercide products are sold in pet markets, with 80% of sales happening online. When Laura and Stephanie said that they had a 70% profit margin, Daymond John found it a very enticing figure.

The sharks were interested in what Laura and Stephanie wanted to do with the investment. They were planning on introducing their products to retail outlets and the wholesale market, but they were open to Mark’s suggestion of tripling their online sales.

Daymond offered them the option to license Wondercide products under one of his lines, but the 15% he asked for in return for the $500,000 left Laura and Stephanie feeling doubtful. Kevin then made an offer of $500,000 at 3% equity with a 6.75% royalty until $1.5 million would be repaid.

A lot of negotiating ensued, with Laura and Stephanie standing their ground on equity. Mark Cuban was the first shark out, and Daymond repeated his offer. Laura and Stephanie said that they would consider higher equity for higher investment.

Lori tried to make an offer, but Kevin interrupted to ask her to join his own deal option. Despite this, Lori made her offer of $500,000 at 3% equity but with a $0.50 royalty per unit sold until repayment. She asked if Daymond would join her offer, but he showed no interest.

After careful consideration of their three offers, Laura and Stephanie accepted Lori’s deal, which earned them a successful exit from the tank. Would you like to know what happened after they left the sharks? Keep reading this Wondercide update to find out.

Since appearing on Shark Tank, Wondercide has continued to be a success. We reached out to Stephanie to get a more detailed Wondercide update and she shared that after the episode aired, she decided to turn down Lori’s offer. 

“We actually didn’t finalize the deal with Lori and we weren’t able to share that for some time,” Stephanie told Shark Tank Recap.

“You only have a few moments to think about the offer and make a decision. Afterward, when I had more time to reflect and think about how I wanted to manage the business, I realized we had to walk away,” Stephanie told us.

Despite not taking the deal, we still have great news for our Wondercide update. Stephanie shared that sales increased every year since Shark Tank and whenever the episode airs they receive a big boost in sales.

Stephanie told us, “To this day, after Shark Tank re-airs, we see a spike in business.”

A wealth of products in many sizes and options are available on the Wondercide website as well as on Amazon.
