Ebizcuss: RPOs are closed and employees laid off soon

The worst case scenario came true for the chain of Apple Premium Resellers eBizcuss / ICLG. The sign had been placed in receivership in early June and he left the service was delivered last Thursday at 18h by the Commercial Court. This concerns the French group, while the Belgian Line with Mac does not follow the same schedule and the outcome would be potentially more favorable.

The few shops still open eBizcuss across France were closed Friday morning. Instruction was given last Thursday to employees to leave. The site displays his side and an epitaph recalls the age of this group (MacZone-PcZone France to its launch in 1976), which developed at the option of several steps, including the merger with International Computer in 2004 then with Motek / ICLG in 2006.Cette closed with immediate effect implies that the material in SAV are left untouched. You should know that eBizcuss managing large volumes of repairs. Equipment from different clients, one of his shops, but also devoid of chains of VAS Apple. APR to neighbors to try to absorb this burden on future owners of these machines to recover from the liquidator with the necessary supporting documents.

Regarding staff, just under 100 people, their employment is terminated next month. Many companies would have looked at the issue from the start of the summer. But few have expressed an interest going beyond the curiosity and others, including an NPRM competitor, would be interested to do some assets before you finally give up.

Mac Line, Belgium, that eBizcuss had purchased in April 2010 (7 APR today), is not subject to this closure decision which struck France. The liquidation period will close on September 30; the activity continues normally and therefore offers two times already on the table.

Finally, the closure in France should not stop the complaints filed against Apple by eBizcuss and its employees. We also learned in early July that the Directorate General for Competition, Consumption and Fraud Prevention launched an investigation into the relationship between Apple and its Premium Resellers.
