Overall, as we position Sizable as high-end products, our revenue flows are especially sensitive to the volume of units sold.Volume+ We expect our volume of sales units to grow at a monthly average rate of 13% in in 2017, 6% in 2018, 5% in 2019, 3% in 2020 and 2021. Eventually, forecasts flatten out at around 2% per month as of 2022.+ A stable growth rate of 2% for products that reach maturity is consistent with the Underwear Benelux market for men in 2015 whose value was of 290 MEUR and growing at a constant pace of 2%+ Growth curves for the set of 8 product are displayed in the attached file “20171025 Sizable Key figures for MMiF.pdf”+ We learnt from past sales that our customers are usually first buying a small batch of products and that they come back few weeks after to buy a bigger batchPrice+ We aim at keeping our price stable over the first years of our business launch to ensure consistency between price and high-end positioning+ Our pricing is in the range but slightly lower than our direct competitors+ Price paid by the end customer is the same regardless the channel Online/Offline.Margins+ Margins are on average of 77% for Online sales and of 52% for Offline sales
Our four main cost buckets are Production, Marketing, OPEX payroll and Other Operating costs (mainly warehouse and direct shipments). Naturally, COGS are 23% and 42% of the sales price for Online and Offline channels, respectively. Then, of the total Operating expenses, salaries and amortization, we have on average for the next 5 years:+ Marketing costs make up for about 25%, necessary to ensure optimal sales uptake+ OPEX payroll represent between 20-40% , ensuring that key resources and knowledge are available (Sales man, Designer, business developer, etc)+ Storage and direct shipments account for 11-17%, ensuring minimal delivery lead times and optimal product management+ Overheads costs only represent 5-11% of the costs
