    Test America
   A cost effective export initiative
 designed to support consortiums of
  Bangladesh consumer products
companies in their cautious entry into
   The Dynamic American Market

 Test America is a subsidiary of The Rogovin Group
        The Test America Consortium
A Cooperative Business Building Concept Designed To Promote Select
Bangladesh Export Categories And Cultural Entities In The U.S. Market

                             Key Objectives:
        1) Expeditiously, produce high sales volumes for
           participating consortium members
        2) Motivationally, enroll Bangladesh government and
            business leaders in this partnership program
        3) Strategically, spread the financial risk among
            all consortium members
        4) Rapidly, make a sales and cultural impact in
             select U.S. test markets
        5) Synergistically, heighten U.S. confidence levels in
             Bangladesh branded products
    How The Test America Consortium
       Will Work For Bangladesh

•    We will jointly select the best that Bangladesh has to
           offer in product categories and cultural assets
•   All products will share the same brand that over time will
            become a highly recognizable brand name
•    We will promotionally package a group of related, yet
           noncompetitive products into a cooperative
           merchandising/ display program
•   The cost of this marketing/ merchandising program
           will be born by the cooperating companies
•   It is important to realize that each cooperating
            manufacturer will be paying just a fraction of the cost
            of the entire export program
                  Two Examples

                The Trade Study
•   One-on-one 15-20 minute interviews with 60 retail buyers

    presented to all consortium partners that       focuses on the buyer interviews

                 Stage 2
       Marketing Plan Development
 Based on the information acquired from the two feasibility studies
     we will develop a marketing / sales plan that will focus
                    on the following factors:

-Objectives                              -Cash Flow Requirements
-Strategies                              -ROI Data

          Marketing/Sales Support
Once the marketing plan has been presented to and approved by
  The Test America Consortium we will quickly firm up all of the
       essential relationships necessary to support the plan.

       This combined retail oriented team will consist of:
                       Sales Specialists
                   Merchandising Experts
                    Distribution Specialists

      who will implement the many programs that make up
                  The Test America Campaign
                Stage 4
     The Implementation & Monitoring
      Of The Test America Program
 When the many elements for this export consortium program
 have been developed, we will use the following parameters
          to monitor the initial test market phase:

Number of sales calls made         Retail HQ penetrations
Number of orders written           Consumer sell through info
Mix of products sold               Payments made by retailers
Number of displays placed          Cooperative advertising used
Number of cultural events booked   Reorders placed
      Stage 5.
   Program Rollout

 Assuming that the test market phase of
The Test America Program is successful,
we will make any necessary adjustments
  and begin to launch the program on a
         broader regional basis
