    House of Fraser shareholder Sports Direct sues over business plan

    A minority shareholder of Britain's House of Fraser, Sports Direct (SPD.L), is suing the department store chain to gain access to its business plan, after House of Fraser announced a major restructuring this week. House of Fraser said on Wednesday it would close some of its stores as a condition of securing new funds from Chinese retailer C.banner , which will become the majority owner of the department store group with a 51 percent stake. Sportswear chain Sports Direct, which owns 11.1 percent of House of Fraser, said on Saturday that it had applied to London's High Court for an injunction requiring House of Fraser to provide a copy of its corporate plan and other information.

    JD Sports looks beyond Britain after profit climbs

    "Because of the saturation in the UK (sportswear) market, the main focus would be overseas development", Executive Chairman Peter Cowgill said in an interview on Tuesday. Analysts at brokerage Peel Hunt lauded JD Sport's performance as a 'stand-out effort' at a tough time for the industry and the consumer as competition grows online and Britons face pressure on their spending power. JD Sports has overtaken billionaire Mike Ashley's Sports Direct (SPD.L) as Britain's leading sportswear retailer by market value.

    Britain reviews powers of its accounting watchdog

    Britain has launched a "root and branch" review of its audit watchdog after corporate scandals raised questions about its ability to police how accountants check the books of companies. The independent review of the Financial Reporting Council (FRC) aims to bolster Britain's reputation for upholding corporate standards, seen as critical to maintaining the country's attractiveness for investment after it leaves the European Union next year. Business minister Greg Clark said the review will be chaired by John Kingman, a former top finance ministry official and now chairman of insurer Legal & General (LSE: LGEN.L - news) .

    [$$] JD Sports Bets on U.S. with Finish Line Buy

    As Finish Line, the U.S. athletic-shoe chain, becomes British, buying shares in its expansion-minded acquirer looks like a slam dunk. Bulls on JD Sports Fashion (ticker:ticker::JD.UK) praise its $558 million purchase of Finish Line, announced last month. “Not every shareholder will be thrilled about the notion of taking on the U.S., but it is a key move in JD’s desire to be a global player, and on a decent multiple for such a large footprint, it strikes us as eminently sensible,” say analysts at brokerage Peel Hunt in a recent note.

Debenhams (Frankfurt: D2T.F - news) is second ranked in department stores by sales value to John Lewis, which said on Wednesday its sales in the week before Christmas rose 8.9 percent.
