Digital Micro warranties update

Liquidator appointed as failed firm seeks buyer

The fate of failed Scottish PC maker Digital Micro now lies with liquidator Casson Beckman & Partners, appointed at a creditors meeting on 3 August. All but 11 warranties are covered and should be honoured by Computer Insurance Services.

Digital Micro went belly-up at the end of July, leaving a small group of customers warranty-less.

Casson Beckman's task is now to achieve 'best realisation' on behalf of the creditors — that is, to sell the company as a going concern or sell off the assets, whichever achieves the highest value.

Customers who bought Digital Micro PCs will be hoping a buyer emerges, although warranties bought by all but the last 11 of Digital Micro's customers are backed by Computer Insurance Services (CIS) in Essex. Digital Micro hadn't paid the premium on the last 11 when the company went under.

CIS has written to the coverless customers and so far three have bought new warranties. CIS will write to the remaining eight urging them to take up the warranty offer before it expires.

CIS can be contacted on 01245 266558.
