It raises debt financing to buy brands
Una Asia Pacific has announced a new round of debt financing to acquire brands. The company is targeting brands with yearly revenues between $300,000 and $20 million. Una doesn’t specifically target businesses in specific categories, but it does want brands with strong SKUs and low seasonality. The fund will provide up to $3 million per brand, depending on the size of the company.
The new capital will be used to acquire e-commerce outfits in the Asia-Pacific region. The startup is looking for companies with annual revenue between $300,000 and $20 million. The company is open to brands in a variety of categories, and it doesn’t mind working with e-commerce brands in different categories. In addition, Una looks for brands with low seasonality and strong stock keeping units.
It offers different team deals to appeal to potential sellers
Amazon roll-up startups are tapping into the FBA brand flipping trend. Una is one such startup that offers different team deals to potential sellers. For example, Una can acquire 100% of your brand and offer you profit-sharing models. The sellers get a lump-sum payment for the majority of the business up-front, and then they collect more money as Una scales the brand. The startup will also continue working with sellers for three to six months after selling their brand.
