Toys R Us, which has 100 stores and outlets in the UK, has put forward a company voluntary arrangement (CVA), which is a step short of going into administration.
Under its CVA plans, Toys R Us is proposing to close at least 26 loss-making UK stores, which would put up to 800 jobs at risk and mean rent cuts for landlords.
The company says that their warehouse-style stores are now “too big and expensive to run”. It is also finding it hard to compete against online toy retailers.
If your company is facing administrations, or you are considering a company merger, acquisition, takeover or joint venture or are in the midst of a shareholder dispute or share capital transaction or need business advice please contact us and speak to our administration solicitors.
