We’re considering raising capital through a Regulation Crowdfunding campaign on Fundify and are running a test the waters campaign to gauge Investor interest. During this test the waters campaign, (1) no money or other consideration is being solicited, and if sent, will not be accepted; (2) no offer to buy the securities can be accepted and no part of the purchase price can be received until the offering statement is filed and only through Fundify’s platform; and (3) a prospective purchaser’s indication of interest is nonbinding.

Summary

Why Invest in Saber Manufacturing?

  • We are an established, growing company in a $22 billion+ market where today’s manufacturers are unable to meet demand, especially for quality, high-caliber munitions lto be offered by us. Current political affairs and rising demand are worsening the shortage.

  • Our products are targeted to be used by the U.S. military, and law enforcement agencies as well as U.S.-allied countries abroad. Our high-caliber products meet NATO (or exceeded) specifications achieved through our high-tech manufacturing systems and IP conversion technology.

  • Our direct targeted  customers include but not limited to General Dynamics, Civil Arms, U.S. Ordnance, and FSST (Native Americans).

  • With the right experience and connections for this space, our stellar team includes U.S. veterans, a former FBI agent, a former gun shop owner, and seasoned professionals who excel at operations, sales and government contract negotiations.

  • We’ve spent years building key alliances, networks and partnerships that open doors in this industry and differentiate our company.

  • We are raising funds to secure additional acreage, build additional manufacturing facilities and fill orders we’ve already received that are contingent on our funding for expansion.

 

Problem

High Demand for Ammo Far Exceeds Supplies

Demand for munition far exceeds supplies -- in the U.S and abroad with U.S. NATO Allied Countries. This is especially true for military-quality, high-caliber munitions that meet (or) exceeds NATO specifications.

Why are U.S. manufacturers at max capacity?

Lake City Army Ammunition Plant (LCAAP), the largest military manufacturer of ammunition in the U.S. that provides the vast majority of all small arms ammunition is consumed by the US Military, committed to a multibillion-dollar government contract between the U.S. and Saudi Arabia in 2019. This locked up their production capacities through 2025, and LCAAP is not currently accepting future orders forcing customers to seek products elsewhere.

Civil Arms: one of Saber’s strategic alliances and is registered with the federal government for munition sales in the U.S. and abroad - has inquired about Saber’s capacity to help because they can’t fill their requests and are being forced to go to Canada for product.

In the U.S.: Demand is growing aggressively from our armed forces and federal agencies for high-quality munitions. The Department of Defense munition budget increased to $715B (2022), up from $703.7B (2021) fiscal year, according to the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense Military Readiness Report.

Overseas: A massive shortage of ammunition that meets NATO specifications overseas in U.S. allied NATO nations. Additionally, there is immediate demand for special rounds that are not currently being produced in the United States but that Saber can produce.

Supplies are limited by production capacity and access to traditional suppliers in Russia, which are now blocked due to political policies. (Source: Biden Administration Bans Importation of Russian Ammunition).

This locked up their production capacities through 2025, and LCAAP is not currently accepting future orders forcing customers to seek products elsewhere.

In 2020, manufacturers such as Remington, Winchester, Federal, ATK and Arsenal stepped in to absorb some of the surplus demand; however, now these operations are at maximum capacity and unable to take on additional orders.

Solution

Expansion + Improved Production Process for Extraordinarily High Production Levels

Saber has developed an unrivaled manufacturing process that yields high-quality, precision brass and steel munition components at exceptional production levels. Saber has carved out niche markets through existing relationships with the U.S. armed forces that have demand for specific munitions that Saber will manufacture.

Product

 

Products for the U.S. Marketplace

50BMG (12.7x99) 660 Grain Projectiles + Other (NATO specifications)

 Products for U.S. Allied Countries

Combloc Rounds: (similar in quality as the U.S. NATO-approved products above):

(12.7 x 108) 680 Grain (+ other bullet wgt. specialty projectiles)

 (14.5x114) 980 Grain Projectiles (+ other bullet wgt. specialty projectiles)

 

The video below displays the historical nature and present-day demand of Large Caliber use within the military. The 50BMG is still today a highly sought after caliber needed domestically and overseas.

 

Business Model

Saber operates in the niche (but large) market of munitions for law enforcement and military customers in the U.S. and U.S. NATO Allied countries, as well as direct distribution for B2C sales.

The business model for Saber Manufacturing is a two-fold manufacturing and distribution model. Saber has commitments contingent on funding. 

Customer Segments

U.S. B2B and B2G Marketplace: Saber will actively pursue selling directly to companies like General Dynamics and Civil Arms, which in turn sell to their customer (typically this customer is the U.S. government through military contracts).

  • Customers that Saber intend to pursue (in the U.S.): General Dynamic, Civil Arms, U.S. Ordnance, FSST

  • Saber sells directly to Flandreau Santee Sioux (FSST) (a Native American tribe), who bids on U.S. government contracts (under a Saber-FFST Joint Venture) under a Minority 8(a) license to get preferential treatment in the bidding process due to its Native American status with the U.S. Government. FSST is buying all its product first from Saber.

Overseas B2G and B2B Marketplace:

Overseas B2G and B2B Marketplace: Saber will sell to affiliated government agencies such as Civil Arms, which then sells directly to the U.S. government or to U.S. NATO Allied countries through U.S. government contracts they have been awarded already but need product to fill their orders. Overseas customers prefer U.S.-quality products.

Interest in Global Market

  • Additional opportunities exist with U.S. NATO Allied countries looking for niche products that Saber can provide. For instance, a government agency in Australia is seeking Saber products and components for its niche caliber 14.5x114.

Pricing Model

All pricing is determined based on many elements such as; components cost (powder, casing, projectiles, primers), volume of order, type of caliber, packing of inventory, and shipping requirements.

Production Process

As former members of the military or law enforcement or family members of the same, we know how important it is for ammunition to deliver high performance every time. We refuse to produce a low-quality product. We use one of kind state-of-the-art equipment especially made for our type of manufacturing quality and speed.

Saber’s precision systems and innovative facility incorporates stringent inspection of its products through high-tech laser equipment throughout the process, enforcing strict quality standards for components and raw material commodities suppliers. Meeting and in some cases exceeding NATO specifications.

Competition

Major players in the industry include Orbital ATK, ST Kinetics, Remington and RUAG. These companies are unable to keep up with the current market demand for products. 

The dilemma caused by long-term contractual commitments versus total production capacity is likely to plague competitors for an extended period of time. Competitors have a fixed capacity in place and have over-committed on production levels, restricting their ability to produce outside their contracts and creating a shortage of product. 

Between the U.S. armed forces and federal law enforcement agencies (i.e.: FBI, HLS, NSA) there are massive contracts for bid, both new and recycled bids seeking manufacturers to supply munitions. Due to the shortages in the domestic and world markets, these sought-after volumes have not been met as far back as 2019 (per Governmental Service Administration Contractual Bids).

Company Vision

Saber is a Missouri-based company founded in 2018 by a highly qualified team of experienced entrepreneurs with expertise in business operations, executive management, manufacturing production & inspection, and global sales development.

Saber aims to achieve Department of Defense status as a preferred military supplier for the U.S. armed forces, as well as a preferred manufacturer and vendor for federal law enforcement agencies.

Saber seeks to produce a top-quality product for the nation’s military and federal law enforcement personnel. A majority of Saber’s team members are either former military members themselves or family members of service personnel. 

Saber REFUSES to produce a product that might fail to properly perform to top-level quality knowing that the life and safety of a family member could be at risk from lower-quality material. This is why Saber uses state-of-the-art equipment specially made for our type of manufacturing quality and speed.
