Infusion Brands International, Inc.
Ticker : INBI Website: http://www.infusionbrands.com/ Business Description:
Exchange : OTCQB
Infusion Brands International, Inc formerly known as OmniReliant Holdings, Inc. is a Nevada Corporation. During the third quarter of the year ended June 30, 2010, it appointed a new management team that has changed the direction of its business to that of a consumer products company which focuses its efforts on building demonstrable brands globally by deploying direct-to-consumer marketing channels internationally that include live shopping, infomercials, eCommerce and traditional "brick-and-mortar" channels of distribution. As of June 30, 2010, its business segments consist of (i) Consumer Products, (ii) eCommerce, and (iii) Fashion Goods. Its Consumer Products Segment has historically been engaged in identifying affordable and demonstrable products to market principally to domestic customers through direct to consumer channels such as television infomercials, live shopping networks, and ecommerce channels. Its newly formed Fashion Goods segment is engaged in the business of sourcing and distributing designer fashion goods and accessories on a discounted basis to both the Business-to-Business ("B2B") wholesale and Business-to-Consumer ("B2C") retail channels of distribution. Its Fashion Goods Segment will focus on its B2C retail distribution, while also combining the existing operations of its wholly-owned subsidiary Designer Liquidator, Inc. ("Designer"), which is principally a liquidator of designer fashion goods on a wholesale basis to the B2B channels of distribution. Its ecommerce segment is engaged in retail and wholesale distribution of specific products and types or categories of products that do not fit into its Consumer Products or Fashion Goods Segment. The eCommerce Segment combines the existing operations of its wholly owned subsidiary, OmniReliant Acquisition Sub, Inc. ("Abazias"), which is an Internet retailer of diamonds and jewelry, Wineharvest LLC, which is an Internet retailer of fine wines, and several equity method available-for-sale method and cost method investees. Its major competitors include consumer products companies such as Church & Dwight Co., Este Lauder, Alberto Culver, Reckitt Benckiser, Thane International, and Guthy Renker.

A very important read:
Article dated: September 02, 2011 (7 months ago)
"DeCecco says the firm, now called Infusion Brands, will likely make money in the fourth quarter - its first-ever profitable period." _________________________________________________________________
"Moreover, under DeCecco's leadership, Infusion went on a hiring spree. It now has 54 employees, including 36 who work out of the firm's 34,000-square-foot facility in a Clearwater business park. It's a big leap from two years ago, when OmniReliant had six employees."
"The company had $16.73 million in 2010 revenues, up 75% from $9.55 million in 2009, according to Securities and Exchange Commission filings."
"Past Dual Saw, Infusion Brands is a business with multiple tentacles. One arm is its TV studio, one of the biggest on the Gulf Coast, where it rents out space for companies, including Publix and Tropical Smoothie, to shoot commercials."
"For starters, once Infusion can post six straight profitable quarters, DeCecco says he will take the company public again, this time with an IPO on the New York Stock Exchange."
"On the building a company part, Infusion recently grew on an international scale. It opened a sales and marketing office in Taiwan earlier this summer that now has 10 employees. And in a deal that closed in May, Infusion bought Home Shopping Express, a Spain-based consumer products firm that has since been renamed Infusion Brands Europe."
"We are not a live shopping company, and we don't want to be," says DeCecco. "We are interested in being a global sales company."

INBI we see traded at $2-$4 when the company was failing, had $0 profit, no growth, and making horrible business decisions. Now INBI trades around .10 while the company is growing exponentially, achieving massive YOY sales and revenue growth (first Q of gross profit is arriving), making big acquisitions, growing internationally, and everything else the DD states.
Why the fall? PPS is a supply and demand equation. There is very little supply (the stock fell on nothing which the weekly chart shows) and there is no demand. With no demand the stock is going nowhere.
The PPS years ago should have been .01'ish. The PPS now should be $2-$4 range. _________________________________________________________________
