Richard Leeds, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Systemax, commented, “This acquisition and quick launch of the all new CircuitCity.com further solidifies Systemax’s position as a leader in online retailing of value-priced, branded computers and consumer electronics. Circuit City is one of the iconic brands in U.S. electronics retailing with a 60-year legacy.

On May 19, 2009 Systemax closed on its agreement to acquire certain trademarks, trade names, domains including www.CircuitCity.com, customer lists and information, and other intangible assets of Circuit City’s e-commerce business. The purchase price was $14 million in cash plus a share of future revenue generated utilizing those assets over a 30-month period. Under the terms of the agreement, the minimum future revenue guaranteed to Circuit City is $3 million. The Bankruptcy Court issued its order approving the transaction on May 15, 2009 following a public auction conducted on May 11, 2009.
