According to an article in TheRealDeal.com, the domain name MNS.com was recently purchased by a large real estate developer in New York, formerly known as TDG/TREGNY (the company that resulted from the merger of the Developers Group (TDG) and the Real Estate Group New York (TREGNY) and which is rebranding itself as MNS which stands for “Marketing and Sales”.
The article goes on to quote the CEO of the newly named MNS, Andrew Barrocas, as saying about the acquisition of MNS.com:
“But the past few months were also spent negotiating for the company’s new Web domain name, MNS.com, which cost “well in excess of six figures” to purchase from another party, said who will continue to function as CEO. ”
So if the domain cost “well in excess of six figures” doesn’t that mean seven figures?
Maybe the CEO meant the purchase price was well into the six figures.
Either way its another example of what a good domain could be worth if a company really needs the domain.
