2017 marks the 10 year anniversary of the founding of Streambank and our 6th year as a division of Hilco Global. We were very busy in 2017, with the growth of our existing business lines, the launch of a new business line, and the growth of our team. All of these developments will give us the capacity to continue to serve our clients in the best ways we know how. With deep insight, hard work, and timely execution

Our Portfolio of Owned Brands

Our portfolio of owned brands includes Powerbilt, Under the Canopy and Portico. Powerbilt signed new licensees in 2017 who will launch in 2018 and will begin selling direct to consumer this year. Under the Canopy, which is managed by our partners at Earthbound, also signed new licenses in 2017 and started selling direct to consumer as well. We look forward to making new announcements for all of our brands in 2018.

Under The Canopy

Under the Canopy creates stylish and affordable products that are good for the environment and better for you. After successfully repositioning the brand in home linens, we turned our focus to expanding Under the Canopy’s product assortment into additional categories. New products under development include home decor categories, including rugs and candles, as well as full size bath and body products for retail to complement our hotel amenities. We also launched a new e-commerce platform at Underthecanopy.com, which has seen month-over-month growth in sales and directly connects the brand with the growing population of socially conscious consumers.


IPv4 Highlights

Our IPv4 business remained very strong in 2017, as the supply-demand dynamic continued to favor sellers. Our online platform for smaller transactions saw a 30% increase in addresses sold over 2016 and a 36% increase in average price, which combine for an 80% increase in gross sales volume. On the private treaty side of the business we continue to serve the Global 1,000 market as it reallocates IP addresses to satisfy demand. Our business will continue to serve Asia-Pacific, the Americas and Europe in 2018 and we look forward to serving new markets in Africa and Latin America this year.

IPv4.Global Website Redesign

IPv4.Global continues to be the most trusted and knowledgeable IPv4 address broker in the market. An increase in company exposure created the need for a fresh new website and blog to keep our clients informed. IPv4.GLOBAL is an IPv4 broker providing multiple solutions designed to meet the unique needs of IPv4 buyers and sellers of every size.
