    Trying to trace old US shares

    Trying to trace old US shares 11th Oct 16 at 11:58 AM
    When we moved home 15 years ago I failed to notify a change of address to the registrars for some shares in US Industries Inc, a company incorporated in Delaware. When I came across the old share certificates I tried to trace the shares without success. The company and the CUSIP number no longer exist and letters to the registrar shown on the certificate, ChaseMellon Shareholder Services have produced no response. I presume that the company was taken over but I can find no trace of it.

    Does anyone have any ideas as to what I can do next to try and find out what happened to these shares?

    Does this look like the right company?

    Thanks alanq. That is really helpful and seems to explain what happened to US Industries Inc. I guess I should follow up the matter with the registrar for Jacuuzi Brands shares. Do you have any advice as to how to set about identifying them, pl;ease?
