Legendary basketball player #KobeBryant ‘s wife #VanessaBryant has officially inherited a $200 million dollar stake with BodyArmor!
According to The Sun, Kobe was the fourth largest shareholder with the company at the time of his death. Sources have confirmed that BodyArmor is well on its way to succeeding the billion dollar mark this year alone since the late athletes passing.
It has been indicated that Bryant originally invested $5 million dollars in March 2013 which gained him a ten percent stake.
BodyArmor founder Mike Reople has come forward to state, “I lost a dear friend. I lost a brother with Kobe and BodyArmor lost a founding father. Kobe Bryant’s fingerprints are all over the BodyArmor brand. The brand wouldn’t be in the position it’s in if Kobe wasn’t a believer back in 2012 and 2013.”
He continues, “For me, this has always been a journey, the last seven or eight years, with Kobe, and now I feel like this is a journey for Kobe.”
“To me, BodyArmor really is his business legacy. Kobe saw in BodyArmor, when we were under $5 million in sales, what nobody else saw.”
