2.0 Company and Financing Summary
2.1 Registered Name and Corporate Structure
Amusement Park, Inc. The
Company is registered as a corporation in the State of
2.2 Required Funds
At this time, the Amusement Park requires $20 million funds. Below is a breakdown of how these funds
will be used:
2.3 Investor Equity
At this time, the Company is seeking to sell a 50% equity interest in the business for the requisite capital sought in this business plan. The investor(s) will also receive a seat on the board of directors and a regular stream of dividends starting in the first year of operation. Please reference the Company’s private placement memorandum for more information regarding the specifics of this investment.
2.4 Management Equity
After the requisite capital is raised, Mr. Doe will retain a 50% ownership in the business.
2.5 Exit Strategy
The Management has planned for three possible exit strategies. The first strategy would be to sell the Company to a larger entity at a significant premium. Since, the amusement park industry maintains a moderate risk profile once the business is established; the Management feels that the Company could be sold for ten to fifteen times earnings.
The second exit scenario would entail selling a portion of the Company via an initial public offering (or “IPO”). After a detailed analysis, it was found that the Company could sell for twenty times earnings on the open market depending on the business’s annual growth rate and strength of earnings. However, taking a company public involves significant legal red tape. Amusement Park, Inc. would be bound by the significant legal framework of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act in addition to the legal requirements set forth in form S1 of the Securities and Exchange Commission. The Company would also have to comply with the Securities Act of 1933 and the Exchange Act of 1934.
The last exit scenario would involve the use of a private placement memorandum to raise capital from private sources. This is also a significantly expensive process that requires the assistance of both an experienced securities law firm and an investment bank. Funds would be raised from private equity and merchant banking sources in exchange for a percentage of the Company’s stock.
3.0 Products and Services

Management intends to develop five roller coasters as well as two water slide rides that will be provided as the primary source of entertainment to visitors.

Management intends to use $13 million of financing in order to develop these rides and the amusement park facility.
3.2 Concessions and Products
The secondary revenue stream for the business will come from the ongoing sale of concessions and products as it relates to events and daily admissions that are related to the Amusement Park facility. This revenue center will ensure that the business remains profitable and cash flow positive at all time.
4.0 Strategic and Market Analysis
4.1 Economic Outlook
This section of the analysis will detail the economic climate, the amusement park industry, the customer profile, and the competition that the business will face as it progresses through its business operations.
Currently, the economic market condition in the United States
is moderate. Unemployment rates have declined while asset prices have risen substantially. As such, now is a strong economic climate for starting an Amusement Park. During times of economic recession, the business may have issues with top line income.
4.2 Industry Analysis
Within the United States, there are approximately 2,000 amusement park complexes that operate on a for profit basis or a not for profit basis. Each year, these businesses generate approximately $20 billion of revenues while providing jobs to more than 312,000 people. Annual payrolls in each of the last five years have exceeded $8 billion.
This is a mature industry, and the expected future growth rate is expected to remain in lockstep with that of the general economy. Due to the high costs associated with developing an Amusement Park– the associated costs with developing this facility should generate a very high return on investment.
4.3 Customer Profile
The Amusement Park average client will be an upper middle class man or woman that enjoys amusements parks as family entertainment. Common traits among clients will include:
Annual household income exceeding $35,000.
Will spend $100 to $250 per person (only a daily visit basis) per visit to the Amusement Park.
Is located within 200 miles of
the Company’s Amusement Park location.
4.4 Competitive Analysis
This is one of the sections of
the business plan that you must write completely on your own. The key to writing
a strong competitive analysis is that you do your research on the local
competition. Find out who your competitors are by searching online directories
and searching in your local Yellow Pages. If there are a number of competitors
in the same industry (meaning that it is not feasible to describe each one) then
showcase the number of businesses that compete with you, and why your business
will provide customers with service/products that are of better quality or less
expensive than your competition.

Timely coverage of the Company and its Amusement Park and related facilities will be further directed through ongoing press relations, news releases and feature stories targeted at key professional communities and other media outlets.
