Update

In view of our comments in the last item it is no surprise, therefore that the struggling music, films and games retailer HMV has announced today (December 13 2012) that it is in talks with its banks, following a 13.5% reduction in sales in the six months to October and amid fears of a “probable” breach of its banking agreements next month.

Whether new initiatives put in place by the company’s new Chief Executive, Trevor Moore, who took up his post in September, will be enough to help HMV take advantage of the run-up to Christmas to significantly improve on sales remains to be seen. Like many retailers it will have December deadlines looming.
