​Sports Direct appoints RSM as new auditor

Sports Direct London

Sports Direct has appointed RSM as its new auditor, succeeding Grant Thornton.

The sporting goods retailer has made the appointment after struggling to find a replacement for Grant Thornton, which stepped down as auditor following the business’ AGM in September.

The appointment follows Sport Direct being put under pressure to appoint a new auditor without government intervention. Following Grant Thornton’s resignation, Sports Direct was the first major listed business that had failed to appoint an auditor, in breach of stock market rules.
