         Marketing Consultant for Strategic Planning - Medical Disposables – eWork Markets ID 00000

           The current situation you describe in your Request For Proposal (RFP) is the need for consultants with
           executive level experience to assist you in the launch of an aggressive, proactive marketing and business
           development activity for medical disposables, presumably medical dress products among others, which your
           company imports and then distributes to national organizations. Your primary markets include custom hospital
           kit manufacturers and you put together custom procedural kits for hospitals. You also have expertise with FDA
           regulated sterilization procedures.

           As business entrepreneurs your responsibility is to evaluate the viability of the business and perform market
           research to help you assess the potential of the concept in your area of distribution. Included with the
           aforementioned, is an analysis of the competitive situation, preparation of initial revenue projections and
           establishment of what is generally known as financial metrics for the business; these include your minimum
           attractive rate of return (MARR) and the actual after-taxes rate of return (ROR) for the business.

           Your interest, it appears to us, is to perform a Market Analysis of the larger consumer, and commercial
           national or global market for your product and see how your business could be properly positioned. Your
           concept represents a product for the Health Care Sector, positioning should be somewhere in the Health Care
           Equipment and Services Industry Group and more specifically in the Health Care Equipment and Supplies
           Industries.

           From the onset, it appears that your competitors might be companies like Abbott Laboratories, Baxter, Bard,
           Guidant, Boston Scientific, Invacare, Medtronic and Thermo Electron. This is because most major
           pharmaceuticals also provide sterilized packaging for delivery of medicines and disposable equipment for
           clinical and operating room uses. After the manufacturing process of these, mostly, plastic products they are
           required to undergo a sterilization process which is usually carried out in large autoclaves or irradiation before
           being shipped to market or filled with medicinal substances. A perfect example includes intravenous (IV) bags
           and blood transfusion bags along with plastic tubing and connectors. Some of these companies have several
           million dollars in annual revenues domestically derived from sales of medical devices and medical
           disposables. Many have aggressive expansion goals which might include equipment like your products.
           These business models might be just right for your project goals but the fact is that successful business
           models change, adapt and are niche specific. YSG / YOUR CORP will provide your company with the broad
           scope and in-depth knowledge of the market so you can take the practical first steps, well informed.

           The following proposal will describe in as much detail as is possible at this point, on how to accomplish your
           goals. Additionally, you may need a review of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) for your company’s
           particular products to ensure achievement of complete compliance with applicable FDA regulations. As you
           may probably know, U.S. industry is regulated by the CFR for various areas such as: food, cosmetics and
           medicines are regulated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the power utilities and other industries
           are regulated by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and the import/export industry is regulated by
           the Department of Commerce, among many others, and all these agencies have their rules codified in the
           CFR.

           YSG and Your Corp. are experts in code review and procedural application for marketing of various products
           and inventions.




                                                                   3

Your Solutions Group (YSG) partners from time to time with other consultants whose specialty is different
                       .
from or expands on theirs. For this task, YSG will be partnering with Your Corporation. Your Corporation will
have the principle responsibility of implementing this project.
                       .
We hope the following .preliminary proposal will describe in as much detail as is possible at this point, on how
                       .
to accomplish your project goals. Please note that Section 5 Contingencies, may not apply to your particular
project but we don’t know enough about it to discard the information and it may be useful to you. Some of the
information also applies to Trade Marks and Trade Names. We like our clients to be well informed.

Your Corporation administrates engineering, regulatory compliance, product marketing, patent process, and
environmental consulting services to several sectors of the economy including the manufacturing, chemical
process and pharmaceutical industries. The corporation sub-contracts additional professional personnel
licensed to offer such services, whenever necessary. The branch which deals with environmental solutions is
Your Corporation – Environmental Consultants.

Business solutions include Marketing Research / Analysis / Plans and complete Business Plans.

Marketing analysis for our client’s products profile the latest technology and products developed by competing
manufacturing companies world-wide, as also existing patents, trademarks and trade names, the market
share in certain product categories, production facilities, distribution channels, existing networks of suppliers
and contractors, a description of work under development, earnings and losses statements and an evaluation
of the competition.

Your Corp. will engage in data mining for the client of all the major companies manufacturing similar products
to your business interests and will develop a detailed marketing analysis and plan for your product based on
this knowledge. The best manufacturing prospect will be identified as a model to follow and the remainders
will be ranked in order of importance to your product and areas of distribution.

At Your Corp., we believe there is a proven strategy for marketing services and products effectively and
profitably. Any review of the Marketing Plan should convey that your product is either so novel and innovative
that it creates a market in and of itself or is a natural extension of an already well established product line and
that your business closes a product loop or product line. Our competitors sometimes charge up to three times
as much as we do for similar research, however, we have ready access to a larger databank and our
overhead is generally lower.

                 pharmaceutical company.

                            practices, norms and specifications, than others. Depending on your

                   be exclusively developed and tailored according to the criteria of the chosen
                   major company identified in 3.1.1 and on the basis of how well your product
                   conforms to the established rules, norms, selection criteria, required
                   manufacturing facilities and existing similar product lines of the selected
                   major company. Any review of the Marketing Plan should convey that your
                   product is a natural extension of an already well established product line or
                   that your business closes a product loop or product line.

                    * Some items may not be relevant to your particular product and could be
                    omitted

        3.1.7.      YSG / YOUR CORP will develop for the CLIENT Royalty Rate Structures
                    and Cash Sale Valuation Tables based on remaining patent life for both
                    exclusive assignment and non-exclusive assignment of any patent or patents
                    involved.

        3.1.8.      YSG / YOUR CORP will recommend specific contingencies to initial rejection,
                    develop some critical financial metrics, contact 25 companies world wide
                    about your product and present photos and promotional write-up.

        3.1.9.      YSG / YOUR CORP will prepare a brief MS Power Point presentation of
                    the salient points of the Final Reports.

        3.1.10.     If specifically requested by CLIENT, follow-ups and continuing contacts via
                    promotional material and presentation letters on CLIENTS behalf, beyond
                    those included in Section 2.1.6, including a brief updated Market Research
                    Report, will be billed at the following rates: $500 / 200 campaign material
                    packets forwarded and $300 / 75 campaign material packets forwarded. This
                    task can also be broken down by hours of marketing and advertising
                    exposure. It is recommended that this option be exercised every quarter to
                    keep your business abreast of changes in the industry.

3.2.    Phase II

        3.2.1.      Under this task, YSG / YOUR CORP will prepare for the CLIENT a complete
                    Business Plan for your product(s) once more information is known.

        3.2.2.      Marketing media (i.e.: newspaper, radio, TV. Internet, etc.) advertising

                    brand establishment will be conducted. Application for Trademark Registration will

        3.2.3.      YSG / YOUR CORP will provide CLIENT with checklists for maintaining and
                    monitoring your Marketing Plan as established in Phase I.

        3.2.4.      YSG / YOUR CORP will prepare for the CLIENT business recommendations and
                    strategies for obtaining funding for your business and will present the developed
                    Business Plan to at least ten (10) venture capitalists and/or angel investors
                    specializing in CLIENT’S business concepts.

3.3.    Phase III

                    3.3.1.       Privately held pharmaceutical companies are also an alternative
                                 which should be considered. Not much information is publicly
                                 available as to the inner workings of these enterprises, however,
                                 a similar approach will be followed for companies such as:


                                                     7
                        Allergan – pharmaceutical preparations

                        Biovail Laboratories Inc. – manufacturing, research and development

                        Clariant LSM – organic chemicals for cancer treatment

                        Droguería San Juan – medicines wholesale and distribution

                        Ex – Lax Inc. – manufacturer

                        IVAX Pharmaceuticals Caribe, Inc. – generic drug manufacturing, export
                         traded markets

                        Mayne Pharma (PR) Inc. – pharmaceutical products

                        Medis Corporation Inc. - pharmaceutical products

                        MOVA Pharmaceutical – pharmaceutical contract manufacturing

                        Sanofi Synthelabo – distribution of pharmaceutical products


4   Assumptions

     YSG / YOUR CORP assumes and shall be held harmless, that the product does not need any
    further medical or pharmacological development. If not, an additional proposal could be submitted
    to further develop your product.

     YSG / YOUR CORP assumes and shall be held harmless, that there are no significant safety
    issues related to the product.

     YSG / YOUR CORP assumes that CLIENT is somewhat familiar with Patent Law and is
    aware that in no way is YSG / YOUR CORP or any of its employees, associates and collaborators
    allowed to solicit, negotiate or participate as co-inventors of anything the CLIENT is presenting at
    this time for evaluation and marketing.

     YSG / YOUR CORP assumes that the owner understands that a complete Business Plan to
    be presented to Venture Capitalists (VC) and Angel Investors (AI) could be developed under a
    different proposal.


4. Contingencies

            In relation to patent disposition, the first, and the most desirable, is to sell or license
            exclusively your patent to a major manufacturer. This is called patent assignment by the
            USPTO, and must be notified under certain circumstances. Arguably, the next favorable
            alternative, is to license your patent non-exclusively to any of several manufacturers.
            Again this is known as assigning your patent and certain federal requirements also apply.

            After that, the 17 or 20 year monopoly granted by the government or governments,
            depending on where you have filed, allows you to manufacture and sell your own patented
            product. This however, requires a considerable business investment. At this juncture,


                                                         8
        certain undesirable issues gain importance, such as: product liability, patent infringement
        by the competition, legal costs, insurance costs, manufacturing, distribution, advertising
        and everything else usually associated with a business.

        If demonstrable value to industry can be established, then promoting your invention or
        product to an industry standard such as ANSI, IEEE, or ASTM would provide enormous
        prestige to the owners and could almost certainly translate into greater sales.

        Finally, the last alternative but not necessarily the worst is to just sit on your patent and
        wait for someone to infringe your rights and then take them to court for a settlement or a
        judgment. This is risky, because it may never happen and because not all judges agree
        with monopolizing technology, and the latest Microsoft court case in relation to Media
        Players is a good case in point. Nevertheless, hardship to the small inventor carries
        considerable weight under the law, and some relief by way of injunctions and
        compensation for punitive damages have been awarded.

        By way of a concluding remark to this section, a last ditch effort could be made to entice a
        major manufacturer to buy your patents just so that they are guaranteed that your
        discoveries will not be there to interfere with something they are already planning to take
        to market in a few years. If enough probable interest is generated by assorted companies
        both large and small, this is a good enough leverage to threaten a larger company’s future
        campaigns. They are sometimes forced to buy out the competition.

        If international filing of your patents has not occurred we can assist you. YSG / YOUR
        CORP can assist you in all of these aspects.
