Cuando anunciamos hace unas semanas atrás los serios problemas económicos que estaba pasando la empresa Contour, era solo cosa de esperar un tiempo antes de que se anunciara lo que les comunicamos ahora: Contour sale a la venta!.

Recordemos que Contour cerro sus puertas el 2 de Agosto del presente año, sin ningún tipo de notificación previa, dejando a todos sus trabajadores en la puerta de la calle. La empresa fundada el año 2004, entro a competir de igual a igual con el gigante GoPro, logrando sacar al mercado un excelente producto, de muy alta y buena calidad, pero que no consiguió asociarse con un inversionista de renombre, para continuar con su exitosa producción…

La firma D.A. Davidson es la encargada de recibir las ofertas de los interesados en su compra, donde todo el proceso durara hasta fines del mes de Octubre.

Comunicado Oficial:

Seattle, WA – Contour, Inc., formerly a leading provider of POV cameras and accessories, has entered into receivership under approval by the Superior Court of Washington for King County.  Inverness Group, LLC, by and through its Managing Partner, John Davidson, has been appointed as Receiver. D.A. Davidson & Co has been engaged by the Receiver to help enable the sale of Contour assets through a competitive bid process within sale procedures to be established in the case.  Nathan Pund, Managing Director at D.A. Davidson, commented, “We look forward to facilitating a successful transaction in the best interests of Contour’s creditors and potentially enabling a future for the Contour brand.”

Founded in 2004, Contour grew to be one of the largest companies in its field with almost $30 million in annual revenue.

Contour abruptly shut its doors on August 2, 2013 after protracted negotiations with investors failed to produce a viable funding solution.  Remaining assets at the Company include an IP portfolio, customer lists and contracts, supplier contracts, accounts receivable and inventories, trademarks, and other assets. The assets will be sold “as is” free and clear of all liens and encumbrances, and the sale will be subject to an agreed Asset Purchase Agreement and final approval by the Court.

D.A. Davidson is currently accepting solicitations from interested parties, with a final competitive bid process at an auction tentatively set for early October. Interested parties should contact Nathan Pund at npund@dadco.com or (206) 903 – 8693.

  • Me es innentendible el que Countour no haya prosperado, básicamente porque el diseño de la cámara me parece mucho mas elaborado que el de las GoPro, de prestaciones ni idea, pero bue… Ojala caiga en buenas manos.
