Sports Direct delays full-year results

Sports Direct Thurrock 1

Sports Direct has delayed the filing of its full-year results due to the “complexities” sparked by its House of Fraser acquisition.

The sportswear giant, owned and run by Mike Ashley, had been due to reveal its preliminary results on Thursday.

Sports Direct did not provide an exact date as to when its audited results would now be published, but said it would be between July 26 and August 23.

The retailer, which has also snapped up Evans Cycles, and is in the process of acquiring Game Digital, blamed the “complexities in the integration” of House of Fraser into the Sports Direct business as the key reason for the delay in its results.
