Daymond offers them the $100 Grand but for 33% interest after they disclose a toy company wants millions of these coins. Keven O'Leary and Robert make the same offer getting two different Sharks in the deal. John quickly counters only wanting 25% of the business now. O'Leary asks the Johnson Family to leave as he puts a deal together with Daymond and Robert. The Family comes back in and hears the Sharks new offer. The Johnson's get a little greedy, and the boy asks for more money. BAD MISTAKE it shocks the entire Shark panel. Now the Johnson's want $150k up from the original $100k they were first looking for. Daymond immediately with drawls his offer. Robert does the same and pulls out of the deal. O'Leary mainly lectures the Johnsons on greed and makes the original offer one more time. DEAL - Keven, Daymond, and Robert make a deal for $100k and 33% of Flipoutz.
- Pure Ayre - Natural Odor Eliminator - James Mitchell is seeking an investment of $150k for 10% of his company. Mitchell demonstrates with a bottle of ammonia and has Barbara Corcoran verifies it smells very bad. A few sprays of Pure Ayre and the smell is completely gone. He then sprays it in his mouth demonstrating it is not harmful. Does it work for bad breathe? lol, had to put that in there. Mitchell doesn't have a patent because he's afraid larger companies will steal his idea. To date, Micthcell already has sold $3,200,000.00 worth of product with $320k sold last year. He discloses he had "Pure Ayre" in Walgreen's Store before they mysteriously terminated the product. There are several other people that already own a piece of this business. Mitchell and his angel investor only control 57% of the business. Daymond offers the $150k but wants 50% of the company not leaving James much room. O'Leary offers $150k but wants 100% of Pure Ayre and says he will first fire Mitchell, then give him a 7% royalty for the rest of his life. Mitchell leaves to go call his wife, oops. O'Leary does his magic and convinces John that his deal is best and to come in on it with him. Mitchell returns to find out now there is only one deal on the table.
