IG.com sells for $4.7 Million

I received an email from Tessa Holcomb on the huge sale of IG.com for $4.7 million.

 Marcus Kocak, Danish Businessman and former Director of Domain Acquisitions at NetNames, and Tessa Holcomb, CEO & Co-Founder of Igloo.com, domain name sales and acquisitions experts, shared that they worked together to acquire IG.com for IG Group who recently revealed paying $4.7 million for this asset in its annual report. (http://www.iggroup.com/) IG.com had previously been in use by iG, Brazil’s third-largest search portal now using ig.com.br as its primary domain.

André Chaves, iG CEO and Executive Board Member of BRZtech (http://brztech.com.br/) shared that, “Although we initially had alternate plans for the IG.com domain name, we were extremely satisfied with the final sales price that  Mr. Kocak and Ms. Holcomb were able to broker while ensuring we felt comfortable with the process throughout the negotiation.”
“In line with our sales efforts, Igloo.com understands the range of unique elements required to achieve the results our clients are looking for when looking to secure a third-party-owned property,” stated Tessa Holcomb. “We are happy to help set a higher standard of what is possible when connecting a premium domain with the right end user.”
Congrats to all involved
