UPCOMING BANKRUPTCY AUCTIONS: Speaking of bankruptcies, the Connaught Group could find out who its new parent will be on April 5, depending on the results of an anticipated Manhattan bankruptcy court auction. The firm’s primary assets are its inventory and intellectual property. Connaught sells three distinct collections: Carlisle, Per Se and Etcetera. Connaught filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy court protection on Feb. 9 in Manhattan. Consensus Advisors is Connaught’s financial adviser. One month later, on May 3, Hilco Streambank will hold an auction for the intellectual property assets of Syms Corp. as part of the firm’s liquidation process. Those assets includes the Syms trade name, other trademarks, Internet URLs and Web sites, as well as the Filene’s Basement trade name and the trademarked Running of the Brides name. The retailer filed its Chapter 11 petition on Nov. 2 in a Delaware bankruptcy court and has since shuttered all doors.
