Kelkoo Actually Sold


Kelkoo has been searching for a home for over a year (some great links in the comments).  According to TechCrunch, Kelkoo has sold to a UK Private Equity firm for less than 100mm Euro (where the heck is the Euro symbol, WordPress?).  In the TechCrunch post is the internal announcement from Kelkoo.  TechCrunch also points to a blog post by the (obviously not happy with Yahoo!) former Kelkoo CEO, Pierre Chappaz.  Here’s the babel fishd version of the post.

Yahoo! originally bought Kelkoo for 475mm Euro.  Ouch.

  1. It’s a decent move by both parties as Kelkoo should now be able to move much faster and have the funds to do so… They’ll be doing more on cashback and voucher codes via a Kelkoo loyalty scheme now…

    German sources say that it has been sold for 35mm.
