More on ModCloth Acquisition — TechCrunch

 

More on Jet.com’s acquisition of online clothing company ModCloth:

This is a disappointing outcome for ModCloth, which had raised $78 million from notable investors like Norwest Venture Partners, FLOODGATE, First Round, and Accel Partners. (However, Norwest and Accel also invested in Jet). We are told that some of the capital will be going back to investors, but not all of it. Some of the acquisition money will go to retaining key employees.
