MARKET & COMPETITION
The business operates primarily in the home school market, and private and public schools as well. The market has a high degree of competition from curriculum suppliers who are primarily located in the US, who see Canada as an extension of their US market....much like Target did.
The significant opportunity is in providing Canadian educators with Canadian content. There is little competition in this area, as most publishers view the Canadian market as too small. We have capitalized on this niche.
INCLUDED, EXCLUDED & OPTIONAL
- INCLUDED in the Price -
Excellent Resources is a curriculum creator and vendor specializing in supplying 'Excellence in Writing' products into the home school, private and public school market for the past 20 years in Canada. The proprietary curriculum already created by ER is included in the sale, along with the distribution rights of complimentary curriculum from IEW® and other suppliers. Customer lists, trademarks, inventory (physical and digital assets), and websites make this an ideal low overhead home-based business
- EXCLUDED from the Price -
The business has created an online 'school' which ideally adds on to the curriculum business, but could be treated separately in negotiations.
- OPTIONAL & EXTRAS -
Owners of the business are willing to transition with the new owners over a six month period, particularly over the 'conference season' which typically the first half of the calendar year. These transition services would be charged additionally as required above the purchase price of the business.

Travel and expenses involved in the above are additional.
