    Britain's John Lewis withholds service payments to landlords

    British department stores group John Lewis has told shopping centre landlords it will withhold 20% of this quarter's service charge as it seeks to cut costs, it said on Friday. John Lewis is part of the employee-owned John Lewis Partnership, which said on Tuesday it was seeking to save 100 million pounds ($123 million) through a major management restructuring. John Lewis said these charges had risen regularly and landlords had not cooperated in trying to reduce costs.

    Sports Direct says JD Sports probe could have impact for major brands

    British sporting goods retailer Sports Direct said on Friday an antitrust investigation into rival JD Sports Fashion's takeover of Footasylum could have implications for the sector's major players, particularly their relationships with "must-have" brands. In July the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) launched an investigation into JD Sports Fashion's completed 90 million pound acquisition of smaller rival Footasylum. The regulator said on Thursday it planned to refer the deal to a deeper phase 2 investigation after finding it could lead to a worse deal for customers due to higher prices, poorer choice in stores or reductions in service quality.

    Billionaire Retailer Ashley Loses Court Battle With Debenhams

    (Bloomberg) -- Want the lowdown on European markets? In your inbox before the open, every day. Sign up here.Billionaire Mike Ashley lost out to Debenhams Plc again on Thursday as a court challenge to the embattled U.K. department-store chain’s restructuring plan failed.In a blow to Ashley’s Sports Direct International Plc, a judge in the High Court in London ruled that Debenhams’s deal with landlords to accept lower rents should be allowed to go ahead. Ashley, who failed in an effort to buy the retail chain earlier this year, funded the suit against the “company voluntary arrangement” by six property companies who said the deal treated them unfavorably.“We are delighted the court has today confirmed that our CVA is effective and will continue to be implemented as planned,” Debenhams’s Chief Executive Officer Stefaan Vansteenkiste, said in a statement after the ruling.Representatives for Sports Direct declined to comment on the judgment.The ruling, which can be appealed, tops a year of heated disputes between Ashley and Debenhams’s board over the 241-year-old retailer. The retail magnate, who was the company’s largest shareholder until its creditors took control in April, led an attempt to oust the chairman and CEO in January.Sports Direct was using the landlords’ challenge to advance its own interests, Debenhams said in court, with the aim of driving it out of business in order to pick up its assets at a bargain price.Ashley had spent about 150 million pounds ($185 million) to acquire his stake in Debenhams, which was wiped out when its creditors took over. The retail tycoon made at least six approaches to the company, culminating in an offer to underwrite a 200 million-pound rights issue. All of those efforts were rebuffed, in part because of Ashley’s demand that he be installed as CEO.\--With assistance from Luca Casiraghi.To contact the reporters on this story: Ellen Milligan in London at emilligan11@bloomberg.net;Irene García Pérez in London at igarciaperez@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Eric Pfanner at epfanner1@bloomberg.net, ;Vivianne Rodrigues at vrodrigues3@bloomberg.net, Chris Vellacott, John LauermanFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.com©2019 Bloomberg L.P.

    Sports Direct's Ashley re-elected to board despite protest

    Mike Ashley, the founder and chief executive of Sports Direct International , was re-elected to the British sporting goods retailer's board on Wednesday, though nearly a quarter of independent shareholders voted against him.

    REFILE-UPDATE 1-Sports Direct says happy with latest accounts after auditor quits

    Sports Direct has followed up a statement announcing the departure of its auditor Grant Thornton with another saying its board was comfortable with its latest accounts. Shares of Sports Direct, led by Newcastle United owner Mike Ashley, were 9% lower at 214.8 pence by 1423 GMT on Wednesday. Sports Direct, whose results were delayed last month after it received an 11th-hour tax bill from Belgian authorities that had to be assessed by Grant Thornton before it could sign off the numbers, said in an initial statement that the auditor had decided to quit following a review of its client portfolio.
