Brantano could see revival as its intellectual property assets go on sale


Collapsed footwear brand Brantano will see its intellectual property assets go on sale, amid a potential revival for the brand as investors express interest.

Metis Partners will bring the assets to market on behalf of Brantano‘s administrators PricewaterhouseCoopers, who have been dealing with the brand‘s winding down since it failed to find a buyer in March.

The assets include an extensive portfolio of brands, national trademark, a branded website and domain name complete with ecommerce software and brand acquisition businesses.

“Brantano is highly recognised and, as a result, a very valuable brand,” Metis Partners‘ Morven Fraser said.

“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.”

The retailer collapsed in March following a continual decline in sales, making over 1000 staff redundant across its 73-store estate.
