In March 2018, LittleThings retained Hilco Streambank to market and sell its intellectual property assets, including social media assets and technology. We developed a marketing plan and implemented it under an aggressive timeline. The opportunity generated an incredible amount of interest, with nearly one-third of the parties we contacted entering into a confidentiality agreement and gaining access to the virtual data room containing confidential information.
LittleThings closed a deal with RockYou Media to acquire the intellectual property and other assets within 6 weeks of Hilco Streambank’s engagement.
Deal terms were not disclosed.
