Boohoo has filed a certificate of incorporation for the US young fashion retailer Nasty Gal.
Following the news earlier this month that Nasty Gal filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, a certificate of incorporation of a private limited company for Nasty Gal was filed on Companies House by Boohoo on 21 November.
Allan Pollitt, a former secretary at Boohoo, is listed as the company’s secretary.
The online retailer Nasty Gal was founded by Sophia Amoruso in 2006 and raised $65m (£51m) throughout its 10-year history, including a $16m (£12.6m) Series C funding round in 2015 and $40m (£31.7m) Series B in 2012. Amoruso resigned as executive chairman when the company announced it had filed for bankruptcy protection.
Manchester-based Boohoo announced soaring profits in September, pre-tax profits leapt 129% to £14.4m during the six months ended 31 August, while sales increased 40% to £127.3m on the previous year.
Boohoo declined to comment.
