Nevisport may be saved from shutdown
The newspaper said that Sports Direct was one of the two bidders. It added that Sports Direct was interested in the company even before it went for liquidation. The Nevisport outlets would also provide a market for Sports Direct's brand, the paper said. The Herald quoted Blair Nimmo of KPMG, the joint provisional liquidators, as saying: "At closing date we had two offers for the business and we are currently evaluating and clarifying the terms of these offers. We are reasonably hopeful that we can achieve a sale, but with the nature of this they are all leasehold shops and the stock is complicated by various claims to ownership. It is not going to be as straightforward as we would like."
