The search for investors for the insolvent online retailer Lesara has failed at the last minute, Wiwo writes. According to reports, the insolvency administrator had negotiated with a strategic investor until the last night of January. But that investor eventually withdrew, to the surprise of Lesara.
Inventory for sale
