Blu-Dot now selling in Las Vegas at Vitacost. This store is also an international seller of goods, please see the links below:

Blu Dot Protein White Tea Apple Pear -- 16 fl oz - Vitacost

Vitacost Company Information - Vitacost

Original site I found vitacost from: Grays world - Polyvore

Blu Dot Protein White Tea Apple Pear 16 fl oz - Polyvore


Keep in mind that year end results will be out next week and Q4 was when most of the US based deals were done. We'll need to wait for Q1 to see what kind of impact the partnership with KeHe has had on sales.

Blu-Dot is making more ground by going into King Scoop stores, which are owned by Kroger Co. Kroger is a fortune 500 group and I believe our Pepsi CEO is really helping us gain ground with new deals and distribution.

Here are some of the websites that are selling Blu-Dot Protein Tea right now:

Request Rejected

https://shop.loblaws.ca/Food/Drinks/...sort=title-asc

Blu-Dot Protein Tea - Cranberry Pomegranate - 473ml - London Drugs

Blu Dot Protein Green Tea Blueberry Acai -- 16 fl oz - Vitacost

Tea | Goodness Me!

http://livenaturally.kingsoopers.com...-tea-cranberry

https://well.ca/products/blu-dot-all...VXsaAk188P8HAQ

http://www.vitaminshoppe.com/p/blue-...2#.VdiJ0flVhBc

All these were added within the last year. Blu-Dot had over 1,400 locations prior to the Loblaws deal last August and since the they added London Drugs, several smaller Canadian independents, and then a whole whack of US retailers with the help of KeHe, the second largest distributor in the USA. There should be at least 2,500 locations across the continent selling Blu-Dot, or else if not in store, the online presence is very strong. There are many review sites that also display the product, but I did not include them.

Default NIA Year End Results

NIA.V Year End Results (Ending May 31st 2015)

Before reading, take into account that the major US distribution deal with KeHe did not happen until the end of this quarter, along with other distribution deals such as London Drugs and several other companies. The loss looks larger because several one-time costs were incurred when NIA took over Blu-Dot. There was also no revenue for several months since the transaction did not close until December. First quarter results will be out end of October 2015 and second quarter end of December 2015 which will give shareholders a better indication as to where the company is at with its US sales.

MD&A Highlights

Following completion of the Transaction the pre-transaction holders of the Corporation’s common shares hold approximately 64% of the outstanding shares of the resulting issuer and the holders of Blu-Dot Shares hold approximately 36% of the outstanding shares of the resulting issuer.

To date the majority of Blu-Dot revenues have been to distributors and retail customers in the Canadian market. Within the Canadian market the revenues have a high degree of seasonality with the peak selling months being primarily April through October and the weakest revenues generated in the colder winter months especially December, January and February. The Company has been developing programs and marketing initiatives which it plans to introduce to its distributors and customers to assist in reducing the impact of seasonality on its sales revenues in geographies with colder seasons.

The Blu-Dot business now has listings with 5 Canadian regional distributors that focus on sales of the Blu-Dot product line to independent grocery and nutritional/health food stores in various regions of Canada. As well, Blu-Dot currently has developed direct relationships and listings with Loblaw’s, Longo’s and Sobeys in 3 selected Canadian market segments.

Blu-Dot in the latter half of 2014 has readied for entry into the US market. The longer term US market potential is much more significant in size than the Canadian market and will also have the benefit of:
a) less seasonality in the regions with milder/warmer winter seasons and
b) enhanced gross profit margins from the positive impact of the US and Canadian dollar exchange rate differential.

The Blu-Dot business has successfully initiated and achieved its first listing with one US based direct customer, The Vitamin Shoppe (a specialty national health food retailer) where the initial stocking order was sold and shipped prior to the acquisition by NVC. Ongoing re-orders from this customer are expected in future quarters.

During the quarter Blu-Dot entered a contractual relationship with KeHE Distributors, a large national specialty food and beverage distributor in the US market. Blu-Dot’s revenue growth strategy for the next three years is focused on:
i) gaining ever increasing sales velocity from each existing distributor and customer relationships via “same store” revenue increases from each store that the Blu-Dot product is sold in.
ii) attracting new listings with additional new distributors and direct customers in Canada.
iii) attracting new listings with additional new distributors and direct customers in the USA with a primary focus on the northeast US markets.
Blu-Dot expects its revenues to grow each quarter through the 2015 calendar year resulting from increasing revenues from existing relationships and new listings in both Canada and the USA from new distributors and new direct customers. The Blu-Dot business will monitor its performance in growing revenues in each of the three methods indicated above.

The Corporation’s net loss increased in 2015 as a result of the startup nature of the Blu-Dot acquisition. Additional sales and marketing costs of $250,435, other operating costs of $216,686, and one time transaction costs of $109,496 were incurred in 2015 related to the Blu-Dot acquisition and operation in fiscal 2015, creating most of the increased loss. These expenses combined with loan repayments of $189,408, inventory increases of $38,275 and payables reductions of $95,057 in fiscal 2015 created most of the decrease in cash in the 2015 fiscal year. Revenues were slightly below projections due to operational issues which the Corporation believes will not recur.

Currently, according to its strategic plan the business is incurring sales and marketing costs that are significantly greater than the gross margin it achieves from its current revenues. The expectation is that, as revenues grow through calendar 2015 and beyond, the sales and marketing expenditures will reduce as a percentage of revenues and of gross margins each quarter. The total sales and marketing costs for the six month period after acquisition in fiscal 2015 was $250,435.

As of May 31, 2015, the Corporation had cash and cash equivalents of $1,120,987 including $774,185 in guaranteed investment certificates with a major Canadian bank. Other current assets were $276,470 and net working capital was $1,236,897. The Corporation had a net cash usage from operating activities of $740,820 in fiscal 2015. Most of the cash was used to reduce Blu-Dot obligations and to finance the operating startup of Blu-Dot.

NIA.V Q1 2015 Results (Ending August 31st 2015)

Price: $0.04
Common Shares: 19,966,032

ASSETS
Cash: $963,021

Sales figures below. Revenue from Q1 was significantly higher than the first two quarters of NIA.V having Blu-Dot, and the loss was more than 50% less. This means that sales are increasing, costs are decreasing, and the company will inevitably break into a profit position in the near future. Keep in mind that many one time costs occurred last year.
(Chart at bottom of Page 3 in MD&A)

Quarter Date Revenue Net Profit(Loss)
Q1 Aug.31, 2015 $159,299 ($89,415)
Q4 May.31, 2015 $64,900 ($232,589)
Q3 Feb.28, 2015 $103,467 ($299,958)
Q2 Nov.30, 2014 $8,088 ($27K)( prior to acquiring Blu-Dot)

MD&A Highlights

The Blu-Dot business now has listings with six Canadian regional distributors that focus on sales of the BluDot product line to independent grocery and nutritional/health food stores in various regions of Canada. As well, Blu-Dot currently has developed direct relationships and listings with Loblaw’s, Longo’s and Sobeys in 3 selected Canadian market segments.

The Corporation’s net loss increased in 2015 as a result of the startup nature of the Blu-Dot acquisition. Sales of $159,299 in the quarter increased from Sales of $64,900 in the previous quarter primarily from existing customer relationships, benefiting from marketing programs and from the summer seasonally warmer weather in Canada. Although gross margins were negatively affected by some of the operating changes in the quarter, they are expected to improve longer term. Sales and marketing costs of $45,913 were reduced from $99,090 in the previous quarter. Operating costs of $50,113 were reduced from the previous quarter ($143,101) with lower legals and salaries in the August 2015 quarter. Public corporation costs are within expectations and include such items as transfer agent fees, listing fees, audit fees and legal fees. These expenses combined with inventory and accounts receivable increases, created most of the decrease in cash in the period.

Based on its overall strategic plan, NVC expects to expand its overall business by; the successful organic growth of each of its underlying brands and product lines as well as; acquiring (or investing in) additional brands and product lines, all within the healthy better for you beverage and foods consumer packaged goods sector. As such, as a significant component of its overall corporate strategy, NVC has established a strategic plan and process with the objective of identifying, soliciting, evaluating and closing additional future acquisitions that meet NVC’S objectives and criteria. The Blu-Dot acquisition was the first acquisition as part of this long term plan. NVC is currently and will continue to develop a pipeline of potential suitable acquisition/investment targets. The goal is to be in a position to move forward with the next acquisition within the next 12 to 18 months based on a number of criteria and milestones.

Blu-Dot has also entered a contractual relationship with KeHE Distributors, a large national specialty food and beverage distributor in the US market. Via KeHE, Bu-Dot is now selling to HEB and United Stores.
Blu-Dot’s revenue growth strategy for the next three years is focused on:

i) gaining ever increasing sales velocity from each existing distributor and customer relationships via “same store” revenue increases from each store that the Blu-Dot product is sold in.
ii) attracting new listings with additional new distributors and direct customers in Canada.
iii) attracting new listings with additional new distributors and direct customers in the USA with a primary focus on the northeast US markets. Blu-Dot expects its revenues to grow through the 2015 calendar year resulting from increasing revenues from existing relationships and new listings in both Canada and the USA from new distributors and new direct customers. The Blu-Dot business will monitor its performance in growing revenues in each of the three methods indicated above.

The Corporation issued 7,162,500 common shares from treasury based to acquire all of the issued and outstanding common shares of Blu-Dot (“Blu-Dot Shares”). The shares were valued at of $716,250, being $0.10 per share. The Blu-Dot shareholders have an opportunity to receive up to 2,363,460 additional common shares, based on the achievement of specific revenue and gross profit targets for the Blu-Dot business by December 31, 2015. At this time, the Company believes that these revenue and gross profit goals are not attainable. However, a complete accounting for this contingent consideration will not be completed until after December 31, 2015, when 2 the failure of reaching these targets is confirmed. Following completion of the Transaction the pre-transaction holders of the Corporation’s common shares hold approximately 64% of the outstanding shares of the resulting issuer and the holders of Blu-Dot Shares hold approximately 36% of the outstanding shares of the resulting issuer.

Blu-Dot in the latter half of 2014 readied for entry into the US market. The longer term US market potential is much more significant in size than the Canadian market and will also have the benefit of: a) less seasonality in the regions with milder/warmer winter seasons and b) enhanced gross profit margins from the positive impact of the US and Canadian dollar exchange rate differential. The Blu-Dot business has successfully initiated and achieved its first listing with one US based direct customer, The Vitamin Shoppe (a specialty national health food retailer) where the initial stocking order was sold and shipped prior to the acquisition by NVC. Ongoing re-orders from this customer are expected in future quarters.

January 2016 article on Blu-Dot Protein Tea

http://www.iff.com/~/media/Files/I/I...6%20ottens.pdf

Blu-Dot is one of the brands that offer an all-natural healthy tea drink, that contains protein, fiber and antioxidants. Their beverage has been made with whey protein and is naturally sweetened. Blu-Dot Protein Tea, is the “First ever refreshing protein drink in a [clear] tea base!” Innovations like Blu-Dot, that feature a high protein content and highlight the natural source of its protein, are typically positioned as workout drinks. Not only can tea be energizing, but it is also seen as a calming beverage, when consumers want to take a minute to slow down. According to the Mintel trend, ‘Slow it All Down’, today’s urban consumers want to switch off from their hectic, fast-paced lifestyles, and are looking for products that can help them wind down.
