Parsons Looking To Sell Gocompare – Report. Founder Could Net £100m If Sale Goes Ahead

Gocompare founder Hayley Parsons is considering selling the company, The Guardian reports.

According to the paper, Parsons has hired accounting firm Grant Thornton to conduct a strategic review of the price comparison firm, which includes the possibility of a sale.

However, it added that both Parsons and Grant Thornton had declined to comment.

Parsons owns 23% of Gocompare, which is valued at £500m. Insurance group esure, which owns 49% of Gocompare, is rumoured to be interested in the 51% of the company it does not already own.

Esure founder Peter Wood has previously expressed an interest in buying the outstanding stake in Gocompare.

Parsons founded Gocompare in 2006.
