PRESS RELEASE

Luzern Solutions Limited, the leading eCommerce platform for managing the return and sale of consumer goods returned at point of sale has raised EUR 2.5 million to accelerate the expansion of its international operations.

Roughly 6% of consumer electronics products sold to consumers are returned to retailers.  Managing this reverse supply chain and realising the maximum amount of value for this inventory is a huge challenge for manufacturers and distributors.  Luzern's platform takes control of this inventory on behalf of manufacturers.  In addition to consumer electronics, Luzern has the ability to handle other products such as sporting equipment and household goods.

Luzern's proprietary web based application  “Channel Optimiser” empowers product manufacturers to manage the flow of these products. It also allows Luzern to act in partnership with product manufacturers to achieve the highest prices possible for this inventory by selling it through eCommerce Marketplaces  such as Amazon, eBay, PriceMinister and www.luzerntech.com  in Europe and the United States.  Today, Luzern manages and sells returned product on behalf of Archos, Brother, Creative, Palm, Philips, Sanyo and many more.  Luzern aims to provide a complete end-to-end solution.

“Luzern Solutions is exactly the sort of Irish company we like to support”, said Dermot Berkery of Delta Partners.   “It is developing an unrivalled platform for managing and selling inventory, particularly B stock returned to retailers, through eCommerce channels particularly in Europe.”

CEO of Luzern Solutions Ken Doyle said: “With operations in Ireland, the UK, Spain, Germany and Netherlands we were keen to bring on capital to support our rapid expansion.  We are delighted that Delta Partners decided to support our expansion.  We recently established operations in the U.S. with one customer signed up so far and a number of others in the pipeline”
