Carrera assets bought by Digital
It's not total salvation
The seriously troubled PC builder Carrera Technology has had a few of its assets snapped up by Digital Networks. The deal doesn't mark total salvation for the company by any means.
According to www.channelnet.co.uk Digital has undertaken to provide warranty and helpline support to Carrera's customers. It also bought the intellectual property rights for the business, and quite a few stock items.
Carrera stopped trading last week. Mesh Computers was in the frame to buy the business, even going so far as to register the Carrera domain name, but claimed last week that the administrators hiked the price of the company just as the deal was about to be signed. Mesh walked away from negotiations.
Pannel Kerr Forster, Carrera's adminstrators, told Channelnet that Digital had had the same information as Mesh but made a better offer. ®
