Colorado Group went into receivership in 2011, owing $400 million to a syndicated of 18 lenders. Four of these lenders took on the business in 2012 (National Australia Bank, Japanese bank Nomura and Anchorage Capital Partners and ICE Canyon). The new owners reduced store numbers from 441 to under 200 and then sold the business in 2017 to Australian footwear company Munro Footwear Group.
