Tale of Two Tandbergs: Tandberg Pays Tandberg Data $1.5 Million for Tandberg.com

The first 7-figure sale to come to light in 2007 is now on the books. Two Norwegian public companies actually completed their $1.5 million deal for Tandberg.com at the end of December but it just became public knowledge when Tandberg Data released a fourth quarter financial highlights report Thursday (Feb. 8). 

Tandberg Data, a leading global supplier and manufacturer of backup and archiving solutions, decided to take the cash offer for Tandberg.com from Tandberg, a leading global provider of visual communication products and services with dual headquarters in New York and Norway. Tandberg Data's site is now at TandbergData.com. To ease the transition, people who visit Tandberg.com are currently finding a split home page announcing the new web addresses for both companies.

By Ron Jackson

Tandberg is the larger of the two companies. In the fourth quarter of 2006, Tandberg had record revenues of just under $131 million. In the same quarter, Tandberg Data booked just over $46 million. By the way, we want to thank Karl-Oskar Fosshaug for bringing  this sale to our attention.

We also saw a six-figure sale finalized this week as InterracialSex.com completed escrow at $150,000. That domain was among the $2 million worth of names auctioned off at last month's Moniker.com live auction at the Internext Expo in Las Vegas. Four more auction names made it onto our new Top 20 chart and Moniker/DomainSystems added two others to give Moniker a hand in seven sales that earned spots on the Big Board.

Afternic.com placed two names on the top half of the elite list; #5 Manhunt.com at $72,222 and #9 Mooch.com at $20,000. Sedo.com also had a solid week, scoring big with #6 Strauss.com at $50,000 and landing four more names on the leader board. SnapNames.com was also a multiple winner with four charted domains, led by #7 Stockz.com at $25,000

.Com swept 17 of the 20 chart entries, with a .net, a .mobi and a ccTLD claiming the remaining slots. Moniker/DomainSystems parked Neutral.net in the 8th position at $20,300. Sedo stepped up again with #16 Save.mobi at $10,600 and Belgium gets credit for the country code representative as #17 Casino.be went to Didier Beernaert for 8,000 ($10,426) in a private transaction.

Here's a look at the complete Top 20 for the week ending Sunday, Feb. 11:

Keep in mind that these are the highest value sales that have been reported to us in the past week. This column is meant to be an educational tool, not a complete list documenting ALL high value domain sales. Such a list is impossible to produce because many sales are kept private at the insistence of buyers, sellers or both.
