OUR BUSINESS MODEL
Cool Cat has a simple yet powerful business model that centers around generating revenue through distributor purchase orders. Due to regulatory restrictions, Cool Cat is only able to sell to distributors, who then sell to retailers, and eventually, to consumers. This strategic approach allows the brand to generate sales across all three groups - distributors, retailers, and consumers - without ever selling directly to consumers.
One of the most compelling aspects of Cool Cat is their unwavering commitment to diversity, inclusivity, and representation. These values are at the forefront of their business, and they hope to inspire other minority-owned companies to follow suit. They work closely with their partners to ensure their brand is highlighted as such, and that it receives the necessary resources to succeed. In short, Cool Cat is not just a brand, it's a movement, and they believe that they are poised to make a significant impact on the industry moving forward.

THE MARKET & OUR TRACTION
Cool Cat is making wine more approachable and inclusive to the next generation of wine drinkers.
Cool Cat is poised to address the growing demand for wine cocktails and appeal to a diverse, multicultural market. The wine cocktail category has experienced significant growth in 2021, up +48.5% in value and +35.5% in volume. As the wine industry aims to attract new, younger, and more diverse consumers, Cool Cat's RTD single serving sizes offer convenience, new flavors, and styles that align with the evolving consumer preferences. With only 25% of Gen Z and younger Millennials drinking wine, and a relatively low percentage of non-White consumers, Cool Cat's commitment to inclusion is an important differentiator in the market. The team has been pleased to see increasing support from retailers for minority-founded companies, and they look forward to capitalizing on this momentum.
Cool Cat is a game-changing wine brand that's making waves in the RTD category. With its refreshing taste, high ABV of 6.9%, and portability, it is a standout product that's easy to take on the go. What's more, Cool Cat is environmentally conscious, with its recyclable packaging making it a smart choice for those looking to minimize their carbon footprint. Cool Cat offers more bang for your buck, with one can equaling two glasses of wine and a four-pack coming close to two bottles of wine. And with only 140 calories, 2G of sugar, and gluten-free, Cool Cat is the better-for-you wine. The brand is led by a diverse leadership team with over 80 years of professional experience, including key hires from Pernod Ricard, Monster Energy, and Essentia Water. Exciting updates include placements across 209 Target stores in 20 states and 150 Food City Supermarkets. Cool Cat has also raised $9.4M through individuals and its lead investor and has won numerous awards, including being featured on Liquor.com's "13 Best Canned Wines to Drink in 2022" and on major platforms such as Oprah and Rolling Stone.

With Regulation A+, a non-accredited investor can only invest a maximum of 10% of their annual income or 10% of their net worth per year, whichever is greater. There are no restrictions for accredited investors.
With Regulation Crowdfunding, non-accredited investors with an annual income or net worth less than $124,000, are limited to invest a maximum of 5% of the greater of those two amounts. For those with an annual income and net worth greater than $124,000, he/she is limited to investing 10% of the greater of the two amounts.
At the close of an offering, all investors whose funds have “cleared” by this time will be included in the disbursement. At this time, each investor will receive an email from StartEngine with their Countersigned Subscription Agreement, which will serve as their proof of purchase moving forward.
Please keep in mind that a company can conduct a series of “closes” or withdrawals of funds throughout the duration of the campaign. If you are included in that withdrawal period, you will be emailed your countersigned subscription agreement and proof of purchase immediately following that withdrawal.
StartEngine assists companies in raising capital, and once the offering is closed, we are no longer involved with whether the company chooses to list shares on a secondary market, or what occurs thereafter. Therefore, StartEngine has no control or insight into your investment after the close of the live offering. In addition, we are not permitted to provide financial advice. You may want to contact a financial professional to discuss possible investment outcomes.
For Regulation Crowdfunding, investors are able to cancel their investment at any point throughout the campaign up until 48 hours before the closing of the offering. Note: If the company does a rolling close, they will post an update to their current investors, giving them the opportunity to cancel during this timeframe. If you do not cancel within this 5-day timeframe, your funds will be invested in the company, and you will no longer be able to cancel the investment. If your funds show as ‘Invested’ on your account dashboard, your investment can no longer be canceled.
For Regulation A+, StartEngine allows for a four-hour cancelation period. Once the four-hour window has passed, it is up to each company to set their own cancelation policy. You may find the company’s cancelation policy in the company’s offering circular.
Once your investment is canceled, there is a 10-day clearing period (from the date your investment was submitted). After your funds have cleared the bank, you will receive your refund within 10 business days.
Refunds that are made through ACH payments can take up to 10 business days to clear. Unfortunately, we are at the mercy of the bank, but we will do everything we can to get you your refund as soon as possible. However, every investment needs to go through the clearing process in order to get sent back to the account associated with the investment.
Both Title III (Regulation Crowdfunding) and Title IV (Reg A+) help entrepreneurs crowdfund capital investments from unaccredited and accredited investors. The differences between these regulations are related to the investor limitations, the differing amounts of money companies are permitted to raise, and differing disclosure and filing requirements.
