Use of MARKABLES data across the world – J.Crew and Madewell

J.Crew is a large specialty apparel retailer in the US which filed for bankruptcy protection in May 2020 as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Due to transfers of the J.Crew trademarks between different group entities in the past, their valuation and collateralization is now under scrutiny of various stakeholders, i.e. different group of debtors. The case is negotiated before the Eastern District of Virginia of the United States Bankruptcy Court.

Ocean Tomo was retained by the debtors to provide a valuation of the J.Crew and Madewell trademarks. In doing so, Ocean Tomo searched both ktMine and MARKABLES and selected 6 comparable transactions from ktMine and 19 from MARKABLES. The full valuation report can be seen here.

On behalf of the unsecured creditors, The Michel-Shaked Group provided another valuation report. Here, the expert relied exclusively on MARKABLES from where he downloaded 62 comparable transactions. The full valuation report can be seen here.
