GrabOne man Shane Bradley has sold off his remaining 25 percent stake in IdeaHQ to APN for $A3.2 million ($4.18 million), according to the company's interim half-year report.
IdeaHQ, a joint venture with APN, was the holding company for daily deal site GrabOne.
Last year Bradley was bullish on the future, telling Idealog that GrabOne had defied the odds even as new competitors sprung up seemingly every five minutes.
