Faces Cosmetics plc was formed in August 2006 and is the UK registered holding company of Faces Cosmetics Holdings Inc., its Canadian branded cosmetics, skin care and anti-aging products business. The Group has an extensive product line comprising over 1,000 individual items in 15 product categories, which are sold through 56, mainly franchised, retail outlets in four countries: Canada (36), Mexico (16), USA (2) and Ireland (2). These products are targeted at Caucasians and a diverse range of women with varying skin tones and colour (typically Hispanic, African, Native American and Asian). It markets its products to a range of age groups, including teenagers and more mature women. In addition, aesthetic treatments, such as facials, manicures and waxing are provided at a number of these retail outlets. The business mainly operates a franchise model whereby third parties acquire the right to operate Faces Cosmetics branded retail sites within shopping centres and other retail locations. Initially, the retail outlets were entirely comprised of kiosks, positioned mainly in the walkways within shopping centres, offering an extensive range of cosmetic, skin care and anti-aging products. More recently, Faces Cosmetics has concentrated on stores within shopping centres, some of which offer aesthetic treatments, in addition to an extensive range of cosmetic, skin care and anti-aging products. In January 2007, the Group announced the sale of a Master Franchise in the Middle East covering the United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Bahrain, and Yemen. More recently it announced plans for further expansion in Mexico, the grant of a third franchise in the USA and its first store in Eastern Europe.

FACES is a proven, successful, 32-year-old, branded cosmetics franchise business which currently operates in 5 countries with approximately 54 locations. FACES products are unique due to the fact that we produce and manufacture our own products enabling us to react quickly to market trends. The diversity of our colour range appeals to all skin tones. The FACES concept is a simple one; franchisees own and operate beautiful stand-alone boutiques in high traffic locations, selling their own exclusive, high-quality, extensive and affordable brand of FACES colour cosmetics. The management team at FACES have instituted an exciting program of expansion, both local and global, which incorporates stunning new store design, beautiful new packaging, high quality, high profit products and, most important of all, a family of exceptional, committed and energetic franchisees. Extensive market research has indicated - among a number of other extremely positive findings - that FACES successfully fills the critical gap between mass-market make-up merchandisers and expensive department store cosmetic brands.

"In Asia, the opportunity to develop a Faces network in India with Indivision is an exciting prospect for the Company. The Directors believe that the Indian market, with a middle class population of 250 million people and where women (aged between 15 years and 39 years) make up 20 per cent. of the population, with an established demand for cosmetic, skin care and anti-aging products provides outstanding growth potential." There are few good strong growth companies around, FACES is one. It has the potential to expand worldwide, they have already stated that in the next 5 years they intend to have 300 franchises in operation.. A fivefold increment from curent stores.. And the exciting thing is the growth is financed from new franchises.. A great story to follow i believe..

They have 5 million cash plus 70 odd stores, i think a mkt cap of £7 million is very conservative...

I would not be too quick to dismiss Faces Cosmetics. The company has 170,000,000 shares in issue but only 10,000,000 not in institutional or directors hands..Hence the big movement on little volume. Results are due out this or next week, they will show a profit as they did last year, the CEOs options range from 6-10p.. He has a big incentive to drive Faces forwards, 8trader you say their last trading statement showed a warning....Nonsense.. What do you know about FCE? it appears very little, they have franchises in 5 countries and their presentation and pricing is slick and competitive.. Now moving into the indian sub continent,a huge potential market. And another thing to bear in mind , its a franchise operation, expansion is done on the back of the franchises money, not company equity. I have spoken to the Dublin store and business is good,if its good there it will be good elsewhere.So in my opinion, Faces is going to be a winner..

You're kidding me :-)) I can believe somebody would buy 80k at 5.5p when it was 2.5-5p ! Very dangerous. Now the market cap is almost the same as varioud companies i know that make millions of profits a year.

8 million market cap. 4-7p spread now. lol Obviously the 2 mm's have little stock and thus the price will be manipulated to stupid prices.

Last trading update was a warning ! Only 2 market makers in this stock ! Shocking spread of 2-3p. Would need at least a 75% rise before you could get into profit and that alone would make the market cap silly. It ticks all the right boxes.....to avoid !!!

In October 2007, Faces Cosmetics raised £5mln (at a price of 4p per share) from a Private Equity Company (Indivision)to expand it's cosmetics into the multi-billion Indian Market place. With 178 mln shares in issue, at the current price, the Market Cap is around £4.5mln - this is less than the £5mln raised around 6 weeks ago. With Indivisions existant contacts in the Indian market place, FACES could be worth watching over the coming months IMHO. Warrants have been issued at prices in excess of 5p. Only half a dozen or so trades have so far been reported during 2007 - once people notice this, we couls see some movement northwards. DYOR.

Pac Con recommendations have not exactly been consistent. Why did you buy in andrbea? do you really think they have the size to compete??

Dr. Ramesh Jolly, the Chief Executive, commented: The flotation on AIM is in line with our plans to expand the FACES brand internationally. Since we acquired the brand we have invested C$4.17 million (£ 1.98 million) in restructuring the business and recruiting the key management to drive the business forward. The recent funding will enable us to expand our US operations and progressively establish a presence in the UK market. We have an excellent range of products and we are confident that the franchise model that we have adopted will enable us to expand rapidly in the US. In Ireland, we have had a presence in Arnotts, a major department store, since August 2005 and we plan to establish a presence in the UK, initially through the opening of one corporate store.'

I had a call on this from Pacific Continental - they are trying to sell the stock. Apparently the franchisees pay an up front fee plus 6% of turnover.
