Financial Proposal Helps Pandora Open New Location in Puerto Rico
Pandora Jewelry, an international jewelry chain, sought to expand their business into a new location in Puerto Rico's largest shopping mall. Securing capital for such a venture in the midst of economic uncertainty proved challenging, so Pandora turned to the Puerto Rico MBDA Business Center. After evaluating Pandora's business objectives, the MBDA developed a finance proposal and strategy that convinced the state-run Economic Development Bank to fund the project for $0.5 million.
In the first six months of operation, the store met its 12-month revenue goal and currently reports revenues in excess of $20 million.
