Wortmann acquires b.com assets
Germany: after only seven days of insolvency, some of bankrupt b.com assets have been acquired by its competitor Wortmann for an undisclosed amount. The new B.com will operate as an independant company within the Wortmann group, as a new company named b.com Computer GmbH. It will continue to be managed by Torsten Belverato and Patrick Köhler, its current managers. About 40 b.com employees (out of 115) will leave the distributor (mainly in RMA, technical support, accountancy, Marketing and online sales services), which will keep its premises in Brauschweig, Gießen. A move is planned in Köln, to fit with the lower number of employees. The future of the b.com foreign offices (in Austria, the Netherlands and Spain) is yet unknown. The acquisition should help Wortmann reach rapidly €1bn turnover. The distributor plans to strongly streamline the portfolio of b.com, and targets a turnover of €100m for 2013. That is significantly less than the last results of independant b.com, which amounted to €260m.
