Bubble Flow Technologies, Inc.

Sept. 8th, 2004 : Daniel C. Kornacki, CEO

Bubble Flow Technologies, Inc. has developed revolutionary intellectual property to digitally monitor the anaerobic fermentation process for the production of alcoholic beverages such as wine and beer. The state of the art involves visual observation, manual testing and recording ... guesswork. The Bubble Flow system directs in-time adjustments based on continuous 24/7 monitoring amalgamated with embedded expertise of world-renowned vintners. This system effectively has "vintners holding the customer's hand" through the entire process to assure optimal results ... no guesswork.

An existing market for this technology is "U-vints". A U-vint is an establishment where customers make their own wine on premises. The U-vint industry has grown exponentially. Currently there are about 700 U-vint establishments in Canada. The Bubble Flow system will increase throughput, increase sales to fill this capacity and automate administrative overhead and will result in payback for the U-vint of less than one year. The second product launch for home users will be propelled by the Bubble Flow reputation built on professional use in U-vints.

Canadian gross sales of wine kits amounts to over 200 million dollars annually. The US market is in its infancy trailing Canada by 10 to 15 years. Parity between these markets would result in five-fold growth. The three main competitors range in size with one being a part of a billion-dollar company. Intellectual property that differentiates the consumables market vis-à-vis these competitors enables Bubble Flow to leverage them or become their acquisition target.

Bubble Flow has functional prototypes and a favorable office action by the US Patent and Trademark Office ... international examination in progress. Bubble Flow requires $500,000 to beta the information system and revise the device for manufacturing cost reductions. For full production additional working capital funds of $500,000 to $1,000,000 will be required.
