Volusion Recent Developments
In January 2021, Volusion successfully emerged from Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Protection, after successfully restructuring the company’s matured debt with Main Street Capital Corporation (“Main Street”) and receiving plan confirmation from the Texas Southern District Bankruptcy Court on November 20, 2020. With a strengthened balance sheet and a renewed focus on platform enhancements, Volusion is well-positioned for long-term growth and success.
In July 2020, Volusion filed for bankruptcy after a cyber attack compromised over 6,000 of their merchants, and 239,000 custom credit card numbers were stolen. On July 27th, 2020, Volusion filed for Chapter 11 and officially entered the reorganizing and restructuring phase. The bankruptcy filing was the aftermath of a major data breach scandal from back in September 2019. Hackers attacked Volusion and stole credit card and customer information from their eCommerce, web hosting, and support platform. They also managed to upload malware onto Volusion’s Google Cloud infrastructure which siphoned payment data from customers during checkout. Approximately $1.6 million was stolen along with 239,000 credit card numbers. The loss of merchant trust, income, and market share due to the attack ultimately led to their fall from grace and subsequent bankruptcy filing.
In May 2018, Volusion has successfully moved its 30,000 stores to the Google Cloud Platform (GCP). The company that focuses on helping small and medium-sized businesses operate online storefronts is the first eCommerce platform to migrate to Google Cloud.
