Yesterday I said that I noticed that was dead and now going to some Louisville blog.

Well last night I was pinged by a few people @ SES London and also a few emails pointing me to the searchenginewatch article on Nick Wilson’s presentation @ SES London in which he let it be known that he had the deal all wraped up with Pay-Per-Post and left the company to start a new venture. Nick went on to say that when his partners let the deal slip they were just ready to pack it in and let everything fall apart. That is when Nick said he returned to salvage a deal for Performancing.

No specific numbers were disclosed to me.

Thanks to graywolf for pointing out the sew article and others in attendance at SES London for dropping the skinny.

  1. […] Update 2: More on the sale of Performancing from the Blog Herald, 901am and Shoemoney. […]

  2. His partners let the pay-per-post deal fall apart, and he somehow managed to put on a cape and save it

  3. Wow, no idea who fed you that info Jeremy, but it’s so wrong it’s not even amusing.

    I said absolutely nothing of the sort. My exact words were “im not sure if it’s public yet, but performancing changed hands this week”.

    That was the solitary comment on the subject at SES, and i regreted even that, i was caught a little off guard with the question.

  4. Nick so for the record you did not leave (resign as ceo) then come back and make this deal happen?

    Also just FYI – Akismet labels your comments as spam

  5. Other than agreeing to the deal, i had nothing to do with it. Patrick handled the entire thing, i never even spoke to anyone at Splash Media other than to do the technical hand over of the domain ownership to Mark Saunders.

    I just did a long interview with Greg Niland over an WMR where i talked about this, and the bizzare coverage it’s been given. it’l no doubt be ready for download soon.

  6. I have to say that the Performancing saga has been a really strange one to watch unfold. It’s almost like they were intentionally tearing apart and destroying everything they’ve built up. Shut down metrics, shut down partners, spin off PFF, try to sell, have the deal fall through… A bad run to say the least.
