Why Sulit bought Pinoy Auto Trader?

Relevance: 79%      Posted on: July 4, 2013

In a joint press conference yesterday, Sulit formally announced that it has acquired start-up company, Pinoy Auto Trader. The acquisition looks more like an acqui-hire considering that the new site is barely a year old in operation. For a couple of years now, Sulit has been fiercely marketing their site in tri-media and tightly focused on several key verticals like "real estate" and "cars" (thus, a restructure of the site to create as a landing portal). It would look like Pinoy Auto Trader (PAT) was actually trying to get into the automotive market where Sulit already has a strong… Sold for Undisclosed Sum

Leading classified ads site has reportedly been sold to a foreign company for an undisclosed sum with negotiations going on as early as first quarter of this year. I've been hearing about several  negotiations for months now but held off writing about it until the transaction has been confirmed and completed.

That's why it's a huge surprise how a giant could just suddenly give up all its brand equity to become the lesser-known OLX Philippines. Before Sulit, there was Buy&Sell Philippines, the company behind the free classified ads magazine. It was husband and wife RJ David that proved the internet is a level playing field, starting Sulit from scratch and a meager budget of Php2,400. The growth of Sulit was the envy of the owners of the Buy&Sell magazine that they tried, in vain, to… redirected to Sedo

Earlier today, a friend texted me asking what happened to, the free classified ads site and forum. The site appears to have expired and has been put on sale at Sedo. I did a quick whois query on the domain registration and some more background checks which led me to believe it was a malicious and successful attempt to take over the domain. The domain is still registered up to July 26, 2010 so this is not a case where the owner just forgot to renew a recently expired domain. Besides, an expired domain will show a generic dotPH…
