Rest Home Expansion

Our client has successfully purchased rest homes and converted them into profitable operations with a mixture of rest home residents and tenants, dementia residents and hospital care patients.

Their formula has been so successful they wish to seize new opportunities now available to expand the business further. One acquisition is under due diligence and more are in sight.

The aging of the New Zealand population and fact that people are living longer necessitates a new look at aged care, and just as the retirement village sector has grown spectacularly over the last decade, the aged care sector is poised to take the same leap. According to a Grant Thornton report, "Over the 20 years between 2006 and 2026, the New Zealand population is expected to grow by almost 20% from 4.2 million to 5.0 million. Similar to most developed countries the New Zealand population is rapidly aging. During the same 20 years, the population aged over 65 is estimated to increase by 84% from 512,000 to 944,000."

This is becoming a topical subject for government and the public alike. The Human Rights Commission, in their Caring Counts paper has recommended “The Prime Minister ensures that the minister with responsibility for older people has a top ten Cabinet ranking to deliver better services, and to provide leadership and co-ordination across ministerial portfolios.” See also upcoming conference.

The aged care market is yet to reach the more sophisticated offerings in the retirement village sector and is demanding more from the owners in the way of location, amenities, infrastructure and quality of product. It is complementary to retirement villages but requires different skills. So there is the opportunity for our client to partner with villages lacking in that resource.

So if you’re interested in participating as an investor or partner in this growing and essential sector email me or give me a call.

Freeflow Pipes

Our client has patented a method of manufacturing downpipes for houses that revolutionises the cost of installation, the number required, and the efficiency in which they operate by doubling the flow rate and eliminating turbulence.

At a time when the housing market is demanding more houses be built and cost savings in housing construction, and when building regulations and tolerances are being tightened to prevent leaky homes, Freeflow Pipes have a product that is more efficient and more cost-effective than anything else on the market.

These patented pipes have three times the life of PVC or Colour Steel, are stronger, take considerably more flow, are one piece - no joins, no leaks - can be pressurised, come in 130 colours, and  have a powder coated decorative surface which is more impact and scratch resistant.

Sounds boring? Well if you’re building your own home, are a group housing company, or an architect - it’s not.

The business has now secured a large share of the home building market through housing companies like G.J. Gardner Homes, Golden Homes, Classic Homes, Platinum Homes, Signature Homes, Stonewood Homes, Jennian Homes and Lockwood Homes.

It has also entered into an agreement with Roofing Industries to supply the Freeflow pipes through their supply chain outlets.

Our client is looking for investors, preferably a cornerstone shareholder, to join the founding shareholders and provide the working capital to consolidate the business here in New Zealand and launch this proven and patented New Zealand product into the Australian market – which is more suited to the mass production of building components and is 5 times the size of that here.


iTravelNZ – New Zealand in your pocket – is already rated “the most comprehensive smart phone travel guide for Aotearoa” in a recent “The best free travel apps” article in the New Zealand Herald and independently rated as the best travel app in NZ by It has already achieved over 27,000 downloads by international tourists and local travellers. The domestic market represents 30% of the total and provides a solid base.

iTravelNZ is integrated with universal apps such as TomTom and NavFree, and has booking affiliations with major brands including TraveBug (TradeMe),,,,, and

Here in New Zealand over 1,500 Points of Interest have been finalised with all locations geo-tagged. Various Regional Tourism Organisations have provided their content to be featured in iTravelNZ.

This is a business.  It specialises in combining travellers’ wants and business needs and obtains revenue from 2 main sources, Business subscriptions and Booking revenue.

Our client has reached the point where the demand is so great he must set up a sales team to obtain business subscriptions from more tourist operators and market iTravelNZ’s presence in key travel locations.

The founder is ideally seeking a business partner who would take a cornerstone shareholding in the business and provide expertise and capital for iTravel to consolidate its leading position in the industry here. However all expressions of interest from potential investors will be considered.
