Troubled registrar Epik saw another flood of outbound transfers in February, but the number was down on January.

The latest gTLD registry transaction reports show net transfers of negative 22,284 in the month, compared to minus 30,596 the previous month. There were 23,783 outbound transfers and 1,499 inbound.

The relatively improved net transfers number may reflect the shorter month, and possibly the emergence of problems Epik had actually executing transfers due to its serious cash flow problems.

Epik’s overall domains under management dropped from 684,691 to 648,092 over the course of the month.

The number of deleted domains was also down, from 20,363 in January to 16,591.

The company over the weekend said it has been sold to an undisclosed buyer for almost $5 million and that it has settled its registry debts and customer lawsuit.
