Home Shopping Latino, Inc. (HSPG.PK) to Import Gems through MadAmerican Exports

Tuesday, November 17th, 2009

Home Shopping Latino Inc. is launching the only network of its kind – a QVC-style shopping channel aimed at the Hispanic market. Targeting the United States in early 2010, the channel will be aired under the name of ViVa Telecompras. The company intends to sell products such as jewelry, gemstones, vitamins and beauty care items from third-party merchandisers.

Several weeks ago, the company announced an agreement with MadAmerican Exports Inc. to import sapphires, rubies, emeralds, garnets, tourmaline and other precious gems from the nation of Madagascar. This country is an Indian Ocean island nation off the east coast of Africa that is exceptionally rich in minerals and gemstones.

MadAmerican Exports CEO Biclair Andrianantoandro is an excellent person for Home Shopping Latino to partner with because he is well-known and well-respected by all political factions in Madagascar. He has held many official positions in Madagascar – Director of Exports and Ministry of Commerce, Deputy and Acting Ambassador to both the United States and the United Nations – and he assisted in the promotion of international investments in nickel and cobalt for Phelps Dodge.

Mr. Andrianantoandro will endeavor to forge long-term relationships between Home Shopping Latino and both public and private decision-makers in Madagascar. He should be able to access high quality gemstones from Madagascar mines for export to Home Shopping Latino at reasonable prices, allowing the company to enjoy solid profit margins on their sales of gemstones and jewelry.

Home Shopping Latino, Inc. (HSPG.PK): Selecting the Best Launch Time

Wednesday, November 11th, 2009

Home Shopping Latino, Inc. has come a long way from CEO Frank Celecia’s original idea two and a half years ago to launch a television shopping channel for the U.S. Hispanic market. In spite of previous ill-fated attempts by others, Celecia felt that the time was now right with a bigger and more prosperous Latino market. HSL sees itself as eventually filling a niche for some 10-13 million U.S. Hispanic homes, a market which is expected to continue to grow to $1 trillion by 2011.

HSL is headquartered in Carson City, Nevada, but its on-air television and website production operations are located in Miami, Florida. The Miami area is a center for Latin television and film production. The company will launch its QVC-style network under the name “Viva Telecompras”, selling gemstones, jewelry, vitamins, and beauty care products, all provided by third-party wholesalers. Well known Hispanic celebrities will be used to enhance consumer response. Special focus will be on the sale of high-quality, high-margin gemstones from Madagascar, subcontracting with jewelry manufacturers in Florida.

The company will outsource many of its operations, including call-center, fulfillment, shipping, and other functions, to third-party companies, and will rent production crews and equipment. It will maintain a core staff to supervise day-to-day production.

Monday, November 9th, 2009

Home Shopping Latino Inc., doing business as Viva TeleCompras, is an all-Spanish language television and online shopping channel. The company is expecting to tap into the rapidly-growing spending power of the growing US Hispanic population with the only network of its kind in the United States.

The Hispanic population is the fastest growing demographic – 9.3 million households with a population of over 35 million – in the United States. Estimates are that by the middle of the century, 1 in every 4 Americans will be of Hispanic origin. By the year 2015, 12 out of every 100 purchases made in the US will be made by Spanish-speaking households. Recognizing this trend, the company expects to reach more than 85% of the Hispanic population in the United States.

The company announced back on September 23, 2009, that they and Shopping En Espanol Inc., a private Miami corporation, have both agreed in principle to join forces and begin setting in motion the launch of the company’s Latino network and website operations. Home Shopping Latino signed an agreement granting 50% of the common stock in the company to Shopping En Espanol for an investment of $20 million.

Shopping En Espanol will be granted two of the six seats on the company’s Board of Directors. This agreement is very important for Home Shopping Latino – in effect, it gets the company off the ground. Viva TeleCompras will use the $20 million to get its on-air operations up and running in the first quarter of 2010.
