Founded in 2015, Company is a Cayman Island holding company with subsidiaries in the US, Singapore and Taiwan. IronYun is seeking growth capital to increase headcount and expand its footprint in the US.
The video surveillance industry is made up of a complex ecosystem that includes software, storage, hardware and services. The total video surveillance market was sized at $15.47 billion in 2013, and is expected to grow to $54.97 billion by 2020.1 IronYun’s focus within this larger market is on the Video Surveillance as a Service (VSaaS) market, which is expected to reach $5.18 billion by 2020. IronYun’s customer base consists of enterprise clients and government/public security organizations. IronYun’s target customers are mid-market companies who have a complex video camera infrastructure (1000+ cameras), and are seeking better solutions in video search/analytics at a lower cost.
IronYun offers clients with hardware and software solutions around video search, video mining and cloud data. IronYun’s product is the CityEyes Appliance – a cloud based video surveillance device optimized for cloud computing and big data surveillance applications. CityEyes appliance is a private cloud video surveillance system that will offer an “all-in-one” solution, consolidating hardware and software components which IronYun expects to be needed for a secure private surveillance infrastructure.
Growth Strategy and Revenue Model
Company generates revenue from hardware sales of its CityEyes product, and additional recurring revenue through its software solution. Hardware is priced at $6,900 for the basic model, up to $40,800 for an advanced device with custom functionality. IronYun’s recurring revenue is expected to come from its video analytics software package, which will be offered as a subscription service. Company has identified 3 primary avenues to drive growth:
1) Product mix and volume expansion: increasing number of cameras, storage capacity, and analytics engines.
2) Regional expansion: utilizing SEO and SEM marketing strategies and expansion into US, China, EMEA and India.
3) Vertical market expansion: Move up market and target larger enterprises (Fortune 1000 companies).
IronYun’s intended value proposition to its customers consists of 3 key factors: ease of use, high performance, and low total cost of ownership. The Company’s product is a “hyper-converged” solution which will provide customers with an end-to-end solution for video storage, analytics and search. By combining functionality into a streamlined software and hardware package, IronYun intends to reach a low TCO (total cost of ownership). The software is being design to search common words to search matching video frames across thousands of hours of video data. Due to the large number of cameras deployed in enterprises, the cost for human operators to monitor videos is very high. IronYun’s products are intended to reduce thousands of hours of monitoring costs into seconds of video search time.
Pro forma data are contingent to successful and full completion of the proposed $2,000,000 Convertible Note Offering, the additional $15,000,000 Series B Equity Offering expected to take place in 2017, and execution by mangement team. For year-ending June 30th.
