As such, Management feels that the current economic climate is actually an excellent time to launch this type of business.

4.2 Industry Analysis

The credit management industry (which includes credit monitoring) represents over 5,000 established businesses that employ more than 15,000. Each year, these businesses aggregately generate more than $2 billion dollars a year of revenue and provide gross annual payrolls of $600 million dollars. The growth rate for this industry has been tremendous over the last five years as the growth of financial transaction over the Internet has increased significantly. Over the last five years, the number of agents operating within this market more than doubled, with income received by these firms increasing more than 300%.

As lending has become much more scientific over the last fifteen years with the implementation of electronic credit reporting, FICO scores, and electronic employment records, the need for consumers to maintain strong credit profiles is tremendous.

Management expects that a diverse group of people will use the Company’s credit monitoring (and from time to time credit repair) services. The business, after obtaining licensure to operate in multiple states will be able to effectively assist thousands of people with their credit monitoring needs.

Mr. Doe expects that the average income of a customer will be $28,000 to $45,000 per year.
