ckafetz: Debenhams is facing a battle to hold on to the proceeds from a rescue ­fundraising, introducing fresh fears about its future. The retailer is hoping to generate as much as £200m from the sale of Danish department store Magasin du Nord to prop up its ailing finances but any deal is expected to face stiff opposition. Restructuring experts said lenders and landlords are likely to demand a big chunk of any proceeds as they look to cut their exposure to the struggling retailer. Meanwhile, it has been ­reported that Mike Ashley may seek to block the disposal of Magasin du Nord. Without a cash injection, Debenhams faces a bleak future. Its share price has sunk two-thirds to less than 12p after a string of profit warnings, and management have been forced to renegotiate its banking covenants. The chain’s hopes now rest largely with finding a buyer for Magasins du Nord, which it bought for just £12m nearly a decade ago. However, a deal will require the approval of more than 50pc of Debenhams shareholders because of its sheer size. Although Ashley would be unable to block the sale, he will have ­considerable sway over whether it goes ahead, having amassed a 30pc stake in Debenhams through Sports Direct. Any attempt to scupper the rescue attempts will stoke fresh controversy about Ashley’s involvement in Debenhams. Last week, Sports Direct was ordered to clarify that it wasn’t weighing a takeover bid for its rival after a non-executive said the board had studied a combination of the two. It comes after The Sunday Telegraph revealed that KPMG has been drafted in to help draw up survival plans. Debenhams was forced to rush out a surprise trading update to calm fears after its shares plunged following the report. ­However, its share price ended down 10.2pc at an all-time low of 11.5p. Property sources said landlords are unlikely to approve a CVA without a significant one-off payment. Lenders may also demand a share of any cash raised. It has more than £300m of bank debt, and nearly £200m in bonds, all of it unsecured, leaving creditors badly exposed. Annual profits are expected to be just £33m this year, compared to £139m five years ago. Debenhams declined to comment. Sports Direct said it would consider any offer for Magasin du Nord “on its merits”.
knigel: Only Who? Look at the chart further back. Between 2010 and 2015 the share price moves up and down within a 50p to £1 range. It's been the last two years we have seen the share price slide to historic lows. So not quite "years". Even I know any share price recovery could take years. So many risks for all (!) sectors at the moment pre Brexit. Also risk of dilution and downgrades. However I personally think a lot of the risks are already factored in and shorters have worked overtime to get the share price as low as possible. Obviously profit warnings have not helped. I will read the next results with great (neutral) interest.
odeysmells: Mike Ashley will buy Debenhams and give landlords a choice- transfer your lease to the newly created House of Debenhams entity or stay in the Debenhams entity which I'll wind down. He has used that trick before - check out Heatons in Ireland. With the share price where it is, it is a no brainer to act very soon. The longer he leaves it the price will be higher as Debenhams' performance improves because House of Fraser is no longer a force. That's 10% market share up for grabs. John Lewis retail figures shows the impact. Debenhams has confirmed it in their recent performance. Will it be a hostile takeover?
qantas: Https:// Debenhams calls in KPMG to assess future options Debenhams has brought in advisors from KPMG to assess a number of options to improve the fortunes of the department store chain. It is in the midst of a turnaround plan designed to cut costs and boost sales. Industry insiders say the firm and KPMG are looking at a number of potential options, including a company voluntary arrangement (CVA), but it is just one possible measure under consideration. Debenhams has acknowledged High Street market conditions are "challenging" . Scandinavian sale A CVA is a form of insolvency proceedings that can be used to close stores and renegotiate rents. "Like all companies, Debenhams frequently works with different advisors on various projects in the normal course of business," the department store said in a statement. Debenhams denies cash crunch problems Debenhams makes third profit warning Debenhams hit by 'Beast from the East' It has issued three profit warning this year, and has lost two-thirds of its share price value since January. As part of its cost cutting, Debenhams said in August that 80 to 90 jobs at its headquarters would be shed. That followed a February announcement it was planning to cut 320 store management jobs. The business is also looking at raising cash by selling off its Scandinavian department store chain Magasin du Nord for as much as £200m. It is a troubled time for traditional retailers, with House of Fraser entering administration and Marks and Spencer saying that it would close 100 shops. 'Pincer movement' Richard Lim of Retail Economics told the BBC: "The fact KPMG have been brought in does not surprise me. Debenhams will be wanting to look at all the options open to them. "The harsh reality is that they are operating in one of the most challenging parts of retailing at the moment. "Consumers are increasingly shopping online, and they are also spending more on things like holidays and the experience economy. "The other part of the pincer movement Debenhams is facing, is that they are being squeezed on costs, with things like increasing rents and business rates, and rising wage and utilities bills. "It all means that department stores are incredibly expensive to operate." Online drive However, given the fact that very few of its 170 stores are actually loss-making, Debenhams will want to look at all its options before making any decisions about reducing the size of its estate. Mr Lim points out: "If you close stores you are in effect giving market share to your rivals. "So this is something retailers are very reluctant to do - even if profits are on a downwards spiral - unless there are no other options." Chief executive Sergio Bucher, who joined Debenhams in 2016, aims to put more emphasis on food and beauty and improve the firm's online platform.
debsdowner: KNIGEL Most the astute posters on this site think as I do, there will be no deal for the time being for Debenhams. There is no reason to do a deal without more information on Debs trading. Both Ashley and Day waited for administration before they put in their offers and both waited for a CVA before that. Debenhams is a different ball game no way are either pair going to take on the long leases here before they are re-negotiated or a CVA. As for the Telegraph article all it really alluded to is at some stage all eyes will be on Debenhams to see how things pan out and if some stores could be saved in due course and then a possible merger with HOF. Ashley will have too much time dealing with HOF at the moment it would be suicidal to make a bid for Debenhams and take on both bank debt and long leases. Whether the share price rises or not first thing is immaterial, I think most days the share price rises first thing then falls back later session. Debenhams is a super-tanker carrying an unstable load at the moment, all this about the company being profitable at the moment is misleading, my bet is some stores losing money at the moment, the second half the weaker half and they need stock for Christmas. We already know they have had to increase their head room with the banks that is a bad sign. If you think you are right put your money where your mouth is and buy tomorrow. I bet you don't!
robot ic1: 🤖 DEBENHAMS RALLIES AS SPORTS DIRECT BUYS HOUSE OF FRASER. (Sharecast News) - Debenhams was on the rise on Friday as Sports Direct - which has a 30% stake in the department store chain - announced the acquisition of House of Fraser. Sports Direct said in a statement that it has agreed to buy House of Fraser from its administrators for £90m in cash. Commenting earlier on reports that Sports Direct was nearing a deal to buy HoF, Neil Wilson, chief market analyst at, said: "This would be an exciting development for the retail sector as it could effectively consolidate the two troubled department store chains into a single offering. This appears the only viable solution; combining the operations to reduce overheads and stop competing against each other after a pretty brutal period of sales that has hammered margins." Back in July, Sports Direct posted a big drop in annual profits as it took an £85m hit from its Debenhams stake. The retailer said pre-tax profit fell to £77.5m in the year to 29 April, from £281.6m the year before. At 1011 BST, Debenhams shares were up 2.2% to 11.7p, while Sports Direct shares were down 0.1% at 406.30p. Debenhams is a great store outlet , with great dedicated staff, everyone is pulling their weight and this big ship will turn round in these choppy waters and sail into the calm seas allowing the share price to rocket upwards . You watch how the share price rockets upwards in the coming weeks . Do your own research always and do not rely on others to help you make decisions.
vulcan2: From BBC news "It is known that Ashley will turn some of the HOF stores into Sports Direct". Good news for DEBS : over 30 HOFs stores to close (that was already in the plan before Ashley bought it), Some of the remaining to turn into Sports Direct. Hence less competition for DEBs. DEB Share price should go up.
ckafetz: Robot, isn’t it good to get an all round view of good and bad news for Debenhams seeing as longs and shorts are out to make money? They may give out negative posts continually but share price has continued to go south so regardless of whether you agree with them or not the share price supports their view. The share price since you have invested does not agree with your positive outlook?
boraki: HTTPS:// 1 August 2018 DEBENHAMS PLC Credit rating update Debenhams plc, the international department store group, notes today's single notch downgrade of its credit rating by Moody's from B1 to B2. This represents Moody's response to the revised profit guidance given in June, amidst challenging trading conditions across the retail sector. Since then, as planned, we have taken decisive action to strengthen our financial position as we navigate these conditions, including a review of non-core parts of our business and continuing constructive discussions with landlords, in addition to which we have agreed increased headroom on our fixed charge covenant. Debenhams remains profitable and cash-generative, and our banks are supportive as we continue to implement our Debenhams Redesigned strategy, which will ensure Debenhams is well-equipped to meet the future needs of our customers. We look forward to unveiling the latest progress in the implementation of that strategy at a capital markets event next month.

boraki: Debenhams could seek up to £250m for Danish chain Magasin du Nord The struggling UK department store chain is considering selling off assets Debenhams has put a price tag of up to £250m on its Danish department store chain Magasin du Nord, as it looks to flush out potential buyers. The struggling department store chain, which has issued three profit warnings this year amid brutal high-street trading conditions, said at the start of the summer that it was considering selling assets to shore up its finances. Debenhams’ advisers, Lazard, believe the Danish chain could fetch £200m-£250m based on a teaser document being circulated among potential buyers. Debenhams acquired Magasin for just £12m nearly a decade ago. Magasin, which has six stores including its famous 124-year-old flagship building in Copenhagen city centre, made an underlying profit of £26.6m last year on sales of £326m. The chief executive of Debenhams, , is under pressure to show that he can end the current sales slump, which has seen Debenhams’ share price plummet more than 70% over the past year. In 2017, he set out plans for an ambitious makeover that would turn its stores into destinations by installing new restaurant brands as well as nail and blow-dry bars. Its dated Designers at Debenhams fashion ranges would also get an overdue update, he said. HTTPS:// P.s. I love debsdowners optimism. LOL. You do make me smile :-)
