    Year's Biggest Domain Sale to Date Tops This Week's Sales Chart at $1.2 Million

    By Ron Jackson

    [...] a new King of The Hill. In 2016's first reported seven-figure sale, we learned that Tribune Publishing (publishers of the Los Angeles Times) bought for $1.2 million in a private transaction. When I say "reported sale" it wasn't a case of the company announcing the purchase, it was a case of George Kirikos uncovering the sale while going through an SEC filing (see page 14) - the same way he has dug up many other blockbuster sales that would have likely gone unnoticed otherwise.

    [...] George uncovered [...] In another filing involving the acquisition of Omni Prepaid, LLC and its subsidiaries, LLC and OmniCard, LLC by Blackhawk Network Holdings for over $103 million the buyer said they thought the domain name, that was part of the assets of the acquired businesses, was worth $11 million. As it was part of a larger transaction involving established businesses we can't chart it but it a number obviously worthy of note.

    That is still not all - as Elliot Silver wrote about at, George learned from a GoDaddy SEC filing that they had acquired a portfolio of domains for $42 million. As always we appreciate the work George has done and continues to do in bringing such important transactions to light, giving us all more insight into current domain valuations.

    [...] [...] for $75,000 [...] Domain King Rick Schwartz and Michael Berkens joined forces to buy in Sedo's latest GreatDomains auction and Sai Pola's sold for a profit of more than $22,000 after picking it up in a live auction at NamesCon in January for $52,500.
