Blast from the past – got a spare couple of quid?

Electricals chain Comet (Now Comet Group Limited), which was sold by KESA Electricals to private investment firm OpCapita for £1 (or was it £2!) at the backend of 2011, before going bust in 2012 with the loss of more than 6,000 jobs and a £50 million bill for unpaid taxes and redundancy costs to be footed by tax payers, has appointed Metis Partners to support the marketing and sale of the intellectual property assets relating to the Company.

Metis Partners has listed the IP assets for sale as follows:

  • Goodwill rights in the iconic Comet corporate brand and reputation
  • Goodwill rights in associated product and service brands
  • An extensive portfolio of trade marks
  • Attractive domain name portfolio and attractive e-commerce website content

Anyone got a spare couple of quid??
