    ◎傳奇的英國音樂和娛樂零售商HMV再次陷入破產保護危機。根據衛報的報導,這家擁有97年歷史的公司佔英國所有實體音樂銷售額的近三分之一,以及DVD總銷售額的近四分之一,該公司之前在2013年也經歷了財務困境,當時該公司獲得重組公司Hilco的拯救。

    ◎畢馬威會計師事務所的破產專家已被任命為聯合管理人。HMV在英國的125家門市將繼續營業,同時間,與供應商和潛在收購者的協商也正在進行中。有2,200個工作機會因而面臨風險。

    詳細全文:

    Legendary UK music and entertainment retailer HMV has fallen into administration again. Administration is the British equivalent of bankruptcy protection.

    The 97-year-old company, which accounts for nearly a third of all physical music sales in the UK and nearly a quarter of all DVD sales according to The Guardian, last experienced financial troubles back in 2013 at which time it was rescued by restructuring firm Hilco.

    Now, insolvency experts from the accountancy firm KPMG have been appointed as joint administrators.

    HMV's 125 UK stores will remain open while discussions with suppliers and potential acquirers are in progress.

    2,200 jobs are currently at risk.
