Brantano IP assets up for sale
Administrators of Brantano, the stricken Leicestershire shoe firm, are selling off the firm’s brand and intellectual property assets via Metis Partners.
IP assets for sale include an extensive portfolio of shoe brands, national trade mark portfolio, a branded website and domain name and e-commerce software, which are expected to attract significant interest from those operating in the footwear, clothing and accessories sectors, as well as brand acquisition businesses.
Brantano slipped into administration in March.
Morven Fraser, of Metis Partners, who is co-ordinating the marketing drive, said: “Brantano is highly recognised and, as a result, a very valuable brand. With the footwear market forecast by PricewaterhouseCoopers to rise from its present value of £7.9 billion to £9.1 billion in 2020, the Brantano brand is in pole position to take advantage of this anticipated growth.”
Trading in Britain since 1998, the company historically had 72 stores and 82 concessions nationwide and in the year to February 2017 had revenues of approximately £82.1m.
