本文

I would like to propose a business arrangement that I think will benefit both our companies. Both our companies serve the same basic market, as we are both in the home improvement and repair contracting business. Your company exclusively repairs and installs roofs. Our company does room additions and interior remodeling. Neither of us presently competes with the other. When we have a room addition that requires a roof we subcontract to a roofing company such as yours. Presently both our companies have separate sales and marketing operations going after different but related business in the same market. I believe both our companies can greatly benefit by combining our sales and marketing efforts. By pooling our existing sales and marketing we can both achieve greater efficiency and reduce cost. Your salesman, who now seeks only roofing jobs, can go after additions and remodeling as well as roofing while our salesman can add roofing to his efforts. We can also combine our advertising and share advertising costs, further saving money. I don’t propose that we merge our two businesses, only that we set up a shared sales and marketing operation. We could, if necessary, set it up as a separate company that is 50% owned by each of us. There are other ways we could set this up as well. These are hard economic times and many people are choosing to repair and remodel rather than buy a new house. The market is good and, by increasing the efficiency of how we both go after that market both our companies can prosper. Please let me know if this idea is of any interest to you. I can be contacted by telephone, mail or e-mail at any time. Best regards, Taro Yamada LANet Systems 1234 Isogashii Dori Suwari Kawa, Japan 0808-340-1234
