Sven Oxtoby
Owner & founder

Company status

  • Small event audio-visual production & rental company with a focus on sound for small to medium events (we cross-rented lighting, video and stage when needed)
  • Good record of happy clients, good set of testimonials and contactable client references.
  • Company does not owe money to any creditors except me, the owner. This debt will fall away on sale of the company.
  • To date the company is loss-making (can't pay owner a salary) and does not have a significant footprint in the market. Summer could be better, and new management with better marketing and more connections, could turn it around.

Payments terms

  • EFT reflecting in our account before handover
  • If you do a cash deposit, note that I will also charge you for the deposit fees. This must be paid in cash hand to hand.

What is included in the sale?

  • Equipment, most of it well-labelled with hard-copy and pdf manuals. Includes extensive standard and custom cabling, rack finishing etc. (Significant investment of time already done.) See list below.
  • Rental/job management database populated with all equipment, services and past clients and past jobs, quotes and invoices
    • Built in the Current RMS cross-platform cloud system, ~R700/month subscription.
    • Customisable templates for quotes, picking lists, invoices etc.
    • Supports barcode scanners and barcode printing (to date we have not used; have used only human-readable asset ID labels for serialised stock i.e. must type in codes to check in and out of stock. This has worked fine for us.)
    • Integration with Quickbooks, Xero and Adobe Sign possible.
    • Current RMS API available - a web rental/purchase interface could be built using this.
  • COD accounts set up with a number of suppliers
  • Library of assorted useful information - reference material, equipment distributor list and price lists, competitors list, related events industry companies, cross-rental catalogues and prices from suppliers.
  • Brand & marketing material: Web site (directly coded in HTML & CSS for lean performance and direct control over content, significant SEO done, responsive so looks decent on phones), Google AdWords account, Facebook page, logo (high res), branded shirts, tops and caps.
  • Company registration with CIPC, COID, SARS (IT, prov tax & payroll)
  • Good standing i.t.o. all tax, COID (Dept of Labour)
  • FNB Business bank account at Century City
  • Labour net outsourced HR contract (R627/mo) can be taken over before October, cancelled from October or reinstated later if you wish.
