Ekskluzivno:Največji angleški distributer GAME v postopku stečaja?

Eden največjih UK (svetovnih) distributerjev iger in igralne tehnike je tik pred propadom. Zaradi hudih dolgov se je skupina znašla v položaju insolventnosti. Glavni krivec za nastalo situacijo naj bi bili previsoki fiksni stroški in očitno preveč ambiciozni načrti za "roll-out" na tujih trgih.

 

Po znanih informacijah se je skupina že nekaj časa bodla s tako ali drugačno finančno krizo, končno pa je nastopil trenutek, ko je informacija uradna. Uradna vest je bila sprva objavljena kar na njihovi Facebook strani, kasneje pa so jo povzele še mnoge druge spletne strani in portali. Spletno mesto www.game.co.uk trenutno ne obratuje...

Žalosti časi, ni kaj. Skupina je v preteklem poslovnem letu obrnila za 1.625 mio GBP (skoraj 2 mio EUR), kar pa je bilo premalo. Sicer obratujejo v skupaj 7 državah (nam najbližje v Avstriji) in imajo samo na domačih tleh (vključno z Irsko) preko 600 prodajaln s skupaj skoraj 5.500 zaposlenimi.

 

S tem bodo do nadaljnjega zamrznjeni tudi vsi bonus programi in točke zvestobe. Več pa v spodaj navedenemu sporočilu za javnost. (vir: FB)
