As sales increase in the U.S., the next challenge is to efficiently import and distribute products and services across markets. The establishment of reseller services through Stucan™ offers U.S. based and operated processes for imports, storage, assembly and distribution of products. This approach meets U.S. clients desire to ‘Buy America’ and expectations of U.S. based customers services.
As revenue increases further, it may be desirable to establish a U.S. Subsidiary. Deciding where to locate your business involves a number of marketing, legal and financial factors, including state property and income tax rates, incentives available for the specific type of business and the skill level needed for your work force. Stucan™ serves to manage these challenges and minimize the financial risk by establishing the subsidiary as a U.S. majority owned company under the Stucan™ Group of companies. It employs the executive, engineering and administrative teams, manages payroll, benefits and taxes.
The cost of establishing the company, employing executive management and staff, and running facilities are initially covered by Stucan™. Investment from the company is welcomed but not necessary; the level of initial investment determines the level of equity owned by the company. Royalties and dividends are paid to the company commensurate to their investment. As the U.S. subsidiary strengthens, the company has the option to procure up to 90-95% of the equity. Stucan™ will retain only 5-10% holdings in the U.S. subsidiary. Executive and operational control transitions to the company as it becomes the majority owner.
