Intending to make a significant move into the U.S., Glasses Direct, the British e-commerce operation, has secured £10 million (€11.2m-$15.2m) in additional cash to fund its development in a second round of financing that has seen the entry of a new shareholder, Acton Capital Partners. This Munich-based company specializes in investments in retailers operating over the internet and through mobile communication. It joins two other equity investors, Index Ventures and Highland Capital Partners, which put up additional equity in a first round of financing last year. In papers filed with the British government, Glasses Direct's auditors had previously said that the uncertainty of when ? and whether ? the new equity funds might be available could have raised doubts about the company's ability to continue as a going concern. Glasses Direct's reached £4.5 million (€4.9m-$6.3m) last year , up from £2.5 million in 2007.
