Gravis Ludus' Carl Williams writes, "It is nothing new to see companies going out of business, unless they are in the automotive industry or banking. It is a fact of life- companies fail. I am going to take a look at a few brands from the past that were revived under new management. To meet the criteria of this article, the original company must have definitively ended operations in one form or another (bankruptcy for instance). I won’t be discussing situations where a parent company simply stopped using a brand, only to later revive it themselves (such as Sony is doing with Psygnosis games). These are going to be in various industries too, not just one niche though they seemingly are connected by common threads."
