It’s been more than two years since Skully Hit Indiegogo with record-breaking support. As if now, it’s high time to the company to keep itself on the road. The kick start company has announced its shut down after many weeks of severe financial struggle.
The trails of raising some temporary funds failed either. Skully has sent emails to customers, informing about the shutdown. The decision of kicking out the founders Marcus and Mitch Weller roused problems a few months ago.
Sales were closed down as most of the team was let go. A buzz is that Chinese tech giant LeEco was trying to acquire the company. However, it didn’t end up on a good note due to several disputes over sale deal.
Chances for a refund from Skully are pretty less as the customers have invested in a startup. It is reported that Skully is filing for Chapter & bankruptcy which doesn’t require a plan for repayment. All their assets are subject to liens held by a secured creditor.
Motorcycle accessory maker Fusar has offered affected customers a credit for the full amount of their Skully purchase. This can be considered as consolation, but Customers can’t avail full credit at once, they can make it all at some point.
