Remedent, Inc.

Business Description

We specialize in the research, development, and manufacturing of oral care and cosmetic dentistry products. We are one of the leading manufacturers of cosmetic dentistry products in Europe. Leveraging our knowledge of regulatory requirements regarding dental products and management’s experience in the needs of the professional dental community, we design, develop, manufacture and distribute our cosmetic dentistry products, including a full line of professional dental products that are distributed in Europe, Asia, Middle East and the United States.

In 2006 we developed a revolutionary system for manufacturing and installing dental veneers which we branded as GlamSmile ® veneers revolutionize the traditional one-at-a-time method of applying porcelain dental veneers. GlamSmile veneers are attached to the front of the patient’s teeth using a patent pending single motion placement tray which replaces the traditional one at a time trial and error method of applying porcelain veneers, making the application less traumatic for the patient, much easier for the dentist and perhaps most important, far less costly than traditional dental veneers. Currently, the GlamSmile veneers are our primary products in the professional oral care and cosmetic dentistry product. Our veneers are supported by a line of professional veneer whitening and teeth sensitivity solutions. Our products are sold to professionals by distributors and sold directly to consumers by our GlamSmile Studios.

We were originally incorporated under the laws of Arizona in September 1996 under the name Remedent USA, Inc. In October 1998, we were acquired by Resort World Enterprises, Inc., a Nevada corporation in a share exchange, and we immediately changed our name to Remedent USA, Inc. and later to Remedent, Inc.

In the latter part of 2008, our Board of Directors approved a strategic plan to separate our OTC business from our professional business, allowing us to focus on the development, marketing and distribution of our products for the professional dental market. In December 2008, we completed a restructuring in the form of a management-led buyout of 50% of our OTC retail business (“2008 Restructuring”). The buyout was led by Mr. Robin List, our former director and Chief Executive Officer, with financing provided by a non-affiliated foreign investment fund. In connection with the strategic plan, we effected our OTC restructuring through a series of transactions involving subsidiary formations, contributions of subsidiary(ies) interests and sales of stock interests through subsidiary transactions. As a result of the series of transactions related to the sale, Remedent Inc. retained 50% of Remedent OTC BV, a Dutch company (“Remedent OTC”) with Mr. List owning the other 50%. Remedent OTC owned and held a 75% ownership interest in Sylphar Holding BV, a Dutch holding company which owned and held the OTC operating subsidiaries (“Sylphar Holding”), together with Concordia Fund B.V. who owned 25% of Sylphar Holding. As a result of Remedent, Inc.’s ownership interest in Remedent OTC, Remedent, Inc. held an ownership interest equal to 37.5% interest in Sylphar Holding. As a result of the sale, all of the OTC business previously directly operated by us was operated and held by Sylphar Holding. In addition, following the restructuring we have focused our business primarily on the marketing and distribution of our GlamSmile Veneers.

Today, our strategic plan is to focus our vertically integrated development, manufacturing and marketing resources on selling our GlamSmile veneers direct to consumers by using all forms of direct response media including the internet, print, radio, television and social network media, to expand our presence in China and Europe. In our marketing efforts we intend to emphasize the ease, convenience, affordability and dramatic, instant results as demonstrated by before and after photos that are attained as a result of GlamSmile veneers. We will also feature our “Until You Smile” satisfaction guarantee. Using the success formula we experienced in China and Belgium using a "Smile Consultant" to help maintain control of the sales process and close the sale, our distribution will be through both owned and operated Glamsmile Studios as well as affiliations with existing dental practices and partner retail centers in Asia, Middle East and Europe.

Our current strategic marketing and distribution plan includes a combination of owned and licensed GlamSmile centers depending upon the size and location of the market, with us managing the marketing efforts, patient communications and sales process. We established two geographic divisions, Asia and Europe, each of which will promote GlamSmile veneer treatments in their respective territories. We plan to establish three types of GlamSmile Centers depending upon market factors and government regulation.

Owned Centers . These are centers in which the Company will own, control and/or manage all aspects of the operation including the facilities, equipment, personnel, marketing, insurance risk and other operating costs and will either employ or contract with dentists to perform the necessary dental services. In China, we will continue to principally rely on our owned and operated dental GlamSmile clinics or centers.

Licensed Centers . In many markets we will seek to identify and recruit cosmetic dentists that have existing practices and who endorse the GlamSmile veneer products. In these markets, we will contract with dental practices and the Company will recognize revenue through the sale of veneer trays plus marketing and other service fees to be charged to the dentist for services performed by the Company.

Distributors . In markets where we lack the expertise with respect to managing marketing and where local regulation and/or custom may make it impractical to deploy an owned or licensed center approach we will look to appoint distributors who will be granted exclusive rights to market and distribute our GlamSmile products directly to consumers subject to minimum performance criteria and/or initial territory fees. In this model the distributor will be expected to invest in all marketing and sales conversion costs in their market. Our revenues will be derived principally from sales of our GlamSmile veneer products to the distributor.

In order to support and facilitate our growth strategy, it is our intention to restructure our subsidiary companies to better manage our GlamSmile related operations. In conjunction with this restructuring, we intend to have the intellectual property and other assets related to GlamSmile contributed to a new entity to be formed to be called GlamSmile Worldwide. New entities would also be created called GlamSmile Asia and GlamSmile Europe, each with licensed rights to use and exploit the GlamSmile technology in their respective territories.

Starting in Belgium and the Netherlands, our products have been introduced utilizing our Distributor Assisted Marketing programs. We implement our program by first identifying an established dealer in each market with a well-developed sales force familiar with sales of capital equipment to the professional dentist community. Second, we develop aggressive lead generation programs and other marketing techniques which served as a blue print for the dealers to implement. The combination of a well-trained dealer force and dealer-assisted marketing and lead generation programs has proven to be far more effective than utilizing a direct sales approach, which is much slower and more costly to establish. This process has been repeated for both the professional dentist and retail, over-the-counter markets in each country. As a result of this approach, we have been able to establish dealers in 28 countries encompassing, Europe, Asia, Latin America, the Pacific Rim and the Middle East.

We previously sold our GlamSmile product in the United States and throughout the world with the exception of certain excluded territories and certain B2C markets pursuant to a distribution agreement. However, on March 27, 2012, the distribution agreements with Den-Mat were terminated pursuant to a certain Termination and Distribution Agreement with Den-Mat (“Den-Mat Distribution Agreement”). Pursuant to the Den-Mat Distribution Agreement, we granted Den-Mat a non-exclusive, irrevocable, perpetual, royalty free, license to use within certain territory, which among other territories excludes China, Macau, Hong Kong, and Taiwan, the intellectual property that was the subject of the license to Den-Mat under the Amended and Restated Distribution, License and Manufacturing Agreement dated June 3, 2009, as amended from time to time (“Prior Agreements”), as such intellectual property relates the products which was the subject of the Prior Agreements. In connection with the termination of the Prior Agreements, under the Den-Mat Distribution Agreement, Den-Mat paid us $200,000. We currently sell our products in Asia, Europe and the Middle East directly to consumers using our direct to consumer model, which includes our GlamSmile Smile Design-Virtual Studio, and GlamSmile Studios.
