Brightsolid shows interest in Genes Reunited site

The Telegraph has reported that Scottish based company Brightsolid (behind the ScotlandsPeople website and Discover My Past Scotland magazine) is amongst several parties interested in purchasing ITV's Friends Reunited portfolio.

As reported in this blog on March 4th, the sale of Genes Reunited is included in the sale as a part of the portfolio, and is being forced by dramatic losses in profit at ITV. Also said to be interested is the Generations Network, parent company of Ancestry.co.uk. The full story is at
