Eighty-year-old adhesives company Avery Dennison has withdrawn its application for the .avery new gTLD.

The application was ranked 1,780 in ICANN’s evaluation queue, meaning it was due to receive its Initial Evaluation results shortly. By withdrawing now, the company gets a bigger refund.

According to its application, Avery Dennison makes “cutting-edge pressure-sensitive solutions, self-adhesive and reflective base materials, and innovative consumer and office products”.

A dot-brand with a Key-Systems back-end, .avery was the company’s only new gTLD application.
