We have previously reported on the problems of UK retailer JD Sports Fashion with its struggling outdoor chain Go Outdoors. Shortly after Go Outdoors was put into administration in June and Deloitte was appointed administrator, JD Sports Fashion bought the business back in a pre-pack deal, saying that unfair rents had been the biggest problem for the chain. In the meantime, Go Outdoors could see its unsecured creditors get back only £0,01 per £1 owed, according to the Deloitte administrators. Several British news sources reported that Deloitte granted JD Sports a licence to keep Go Outdoors’ 67 stores open while the company renegotiated cheaper rents. Should this not be successful, some are likely have to close. JD Sports acquired Go Outdoors for £112 million (€123.5m-$139.4 million) at the end of 2016, but the performance of the outdoor retail operation has fallen short of expectations.
