Kleeneze offloads unit in cut price sale

Kleeneze has offloaded its loss-making display marketing business DMG for just over one eighth of what it paid for it less than three years ago.

DMG - which was recently renamed The Wonderful Book Company - was sold to Premier Direct for just 4.1 million, a fraction of the 31.5 million Kleeneze paid for the business in November 2000.

Chief executive William Rollason admitted the price was "disappointing" but said the sale cleared the way for the group to concentrate on its profitable Kleeneze and Farepak businesses.

While the group's remaining businesses made operating profits of 8.5 million in the year to April 30, up 20% on last year, DMG ran up losses of 10.8 million.

And after a 33.4 million goodwill writedown on the value of DMG, the business made pre-tax losses of 44.2 million.

The DMG figure dragged the Swindon-based group into the red with pre-tax losses of 36 million but Kleeneze said the disposal would allow it to concentrate on exploiting "excellent opportunities" for the remaining businesses.

Mr Rollason said: "It is disappointing to have sold DMG for 4.1 million when the Group purchased it for 31.5 million in November 2000.

"However, following a detailed strategic review in which we considered the three options of retention, disposal and closure, we concluded that any potential upside from reducing the operating losses at DMG was not sufficient; and the costs and risks of closure were too great.

"This disposal clears the decks and will enable us to exploit much more quickly the excellent opportunities for Kleeneze UK and Farepak."

The Kleeneze catalogue business saw turnover grow 5.5% to 86.3 million and operating profits rise by a fifth to 6.6 million with a particularly strong performance from its newer health and beauty lines.
