Wow, after that diatribe from Downer I might buy in to SPD. Methinks he might be short.

not a lot of facts just one hell of a lot of conjecture from someone I suspect has little knowledge of insolvency law!

ignoble, Yes I saw your post "nightmare" indeed! Mike Ashley didn't have much credibility with the city previously, the workers don't like him and the fans don't like him. He has major problems at the moment.

QANTAS, Yes posters here need to read this on the Debenhams thread, Sports Direct could be at risk. debsdowner 18 Aug '18 - 10:00 - 8948 of 8954 Edit 0 0 0 clocktower, You say Mike Ashley will be fine with the closure of the HOF website, I challenge you to explain why? Can you give me some estimation of what the website may have produced in revenue? Because I can but bet you cannot! justice... , Ashley's dream now turned into a "nightmare" as one poster said on Sports Direct forum. All these posters who have foolishly thought Ashley would bid for Debenhams with its billions of leases before a CVA are in complete cuckoo land. His acquisition turned sour within days. He could hand the keys back to the Administrators because he is operating under licence according to the BBC but would lose his £90 million. That will have an impact on Sports Direct with further write downs and loss of profits. Ashley appears to be cornered now: 1- He has lost customer loyalty for having to cancel and refund orders 2- Its costing him significant money at the moment 3- Its affecting Sports Direct share price 4- Its increased Sports Direct risk 5- Its taken his focus off the running of SPD 6- He is losing shareholder confidence 7- He is making himself look a complete fool with the city and press alike 8- He will hamper any further acquisitions 9- He will lose credibility with the banks 10- He will lose credibility with Suppliers and brand names 11- He could lose out on leases with stores due to press comments Philip Day offering better deals with owners. Its turning out to be a complete and utter nightmare for Ashley and one which he has foolishly guessed wrong.

Sports Direct have already taken a write down on Debenhams, if HOF fails that is another £90 million lost and more besides. In order to keep HOF afloat Ashley may have to stump up a few hundred million to pay off aggrieved suppliers. But having said all that he may still struggle to turn around HOF. HOF could end up being a significant liability to SPD if SPD sales fall its lights out.

How will this affect Sport Direct? Well its already affecting the company the share price falling. Sports Direct transport turning up at a XPO Warehouse and told to go away until Mike Pays them £30 million Big brands are already pulling stock from HOF the stores will soon run out of stock. Ashley's dream turned into a nightmare trying to save the £90 million he has put in and not lose any more his eye taken off the ball at Sports Direct. Shareholders in Sports Direct now going for the exit!

clocktower, XPO owed over £30 million and the company worth far more than Sports Direct. XPO appear to own a warehouse which presumably contains stock from other suppliers, so the warehouse still running but no one will allow access to stock normally held for HOF. XPO may distribute stock to other stores like Harrods. If one is in dispute over money the bigger guy has the most clout. XPO has a lot more clout. Seems they will not give or negotiate its either pay up or get lost.

If Sports Direct have not got access to the stock in XPO`s warehouses, XPO has a even bigger problem on their hands - A warehouse earning zero, stock that one way or another that they will have to clear and free up so to be able to achieve some earnings from that space. MA will not give a fig, and rightly so, he never bought the debts, he never purchased a on-going concern - he purchased what EY had to offer. So why should he be the lifeboat that gets all those daft enough to have given the Chinese behind it, so much credit. Why are the press not after the former owners the way they were after P.Green with BHS - a good friend of MA it seems. How are the stores trading with the stock they have, and I guess those that are removing stock from the concessions are just freeing up space for MA to make the changes more rapidly. All those involved should be very grateful that MA stuck a bid in that was accepted, a number of staff still have jobs, some supplies still have outlets, subject to agreeing terms with SD. If they negotiate well they can at least claw back the losses over time by for example agreeing to adding 5% to every new invoice raised to cover future insurance costs or some other wheeze. Maybe its time for a host of New Brands to be given the limelight at HoF stores.

Latest on HOF dispute XPO Logistics owed £30 million! No wonder they wont allow Sports Direct access to goods in their Warehouses. HTTPs://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-45216551 Mike Ashley being held to ransom say the press, he will be infuriated his purchase gone pear shaped days after acquisition and to top it all he is facing being booted out of some of the stores Philip Day offering to pay higher rents. Ashleys dream of being the Harrods of the High Street now turned into a nightmare. Suppliers pulling their stocks out of his stores premium brands at that.

News just released House of Fraser was close to being sold for £1 before Ashley made his offer. HTTPs://www.independent.co.uk/news/business/news/house-of-fraser-sold-1-pound-mike-ashley-bid-administration-ey-a8495821.html Ashley must be kicking himself the administrators took the view that is all it was worth. So he has overpaid and its given him a huge headache as the company must be losing money by the hour and the suppliers are pulling out the stores and logistics XPO not allowing him access to their warehouse goods.

Mint Velvet the latest to pull stock from HOF There is speculation that XPO is owed "tens of millions of pounds", The Times reported, while Sports Direct sources told The Guardian said the XPO was being "totally unreasonable in terms of their demands" and was "refusing to engage in any process" . Other House of Fraser clothing suppliers have taken action as they negotiate over payments. According to reports, fashion brands Jigsaw, Karen Millen and Mint Velvet have removed some stock from their House of Fraser concessions. With Debenhams likely to default on debt according to Moody's Debenhams could be next to see suppliers play hard ball.

Not surprised at the share fall Mike Ashley bitten off more than he can chew with the HOF purchase. HOF website down, customers unable to get their ordered goods, all orders online been cancelled. XPO one of the worlds largest logistics companies refusing to allow Sports Direct from obtaining goods from warehouses. Suppliers to HOF pulling stocks from HOF stores. Landlords of some of HOF stores been offered higher rent by Philp Day. HTTPs://www.theguardian.com/business/2018/aug/16/house-of-fraser-cancels-online-orders-and-refunds-customers

That is how he has built his business buying assets on the cheap. He bought JJB sports for nothing and made an absolute killing.

its being bought via pre-pack....does that give him leeway to re-negotiate new leases as all creditors go with the old-Co?
