After the issues with gamedemon and the scam Mr Lawrence decided to undertake, i decided to chk out HUKD and try to summise who owns it - just idle curiosity
Quidco is owned by Mr P & Mrs J Nikkel - last audited accounts showed a turnover of over £21m (yes MILLION!) for the 12m to Jul 09. Not bad for 2 students who now own Maple Syrup Media Ltd
BUT on the HUKD website I can't locate the company number nor reg'd office details. From this I summise that HUKD must be a partnership with Mr Nikkel in control. As otherwise they would be in breach of the companies act for not disclosing such info.
Personally I feel that these 2 students managed to run a multi-million pound business and a multi-faceted business too and deserve credit. Why don't they start their own Apprentice scheme I'm sure there would 1000's of takers.
I'm just interested to know if the Quidco guys are the owners of HUKD and of-course then the other subs like PlayPennies, BitterWallet, DealSpwn etc... Its a UK success story and I can't understand why it seems to be kept under a cloak of secrecy
Read on for serious internet business.....
