Satori Beverages International Investment Information

In April 2012, Congress passed the Jumpstart Our Business Startups Act (JOBS Act). The JOBS Act directs the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to remove the prohibition on general solicitation or general advertising for securities offerings provided that sales are limited to accredited investors. By requiring the SEC to remove this general solicitation restriction, Congress sought to make it easier for a company to find investors and thereby raise capital.

Satori Beverages is now offering accredited investors the opportunity to purchase shares in the company. The amount of shares being offered are limited. The funds raised will be used to further grow the business and to complete the process required for the company's shares to trade on the open market.

Quick Facts (click for more information)
• Satori Beverages International and its wholly owned subsidiary, Kyodo USA, operate under the name Smith Food & Beverage Group.

• The Group develops, markets, and distributes food and beverages.

• All products are offered under brand names owned by the Group.

Our Mission(click for more information)
Management's mission is to expand its food and beverage operations to make it diversified in the products that it offers and the geographic regions that it serves. The company currently places greater emphasis on its food sector outside of the United States because the number of potential buyers is much larger, the importation and distribution is potentially easier and buyers are not as concerned with brand names as they are with alcoholic beverages. The company is focusing more on its alcoholic beverage sector in the U.S. because it has identified a strong base of distributors for the product and has extremely strong marketing resources. Moreover, once an alcoholic product has established a presence in the United States, it will be easier to market it in other countries.
