B&Q in Examinership

DIY chain B&Q Ireland was placed into interim examinership on 31st January.  Was this due to declining sales, pressure caused by its rental agreements, or both? You can do your own analysis by using FAME to review the company’s financial statements for the last 10 years, and Passport/Global Market Information to look at forecasts for the Irish DIY, Home Improvement and Garden Centre market for the next 5 years.

FAME and Passport/Global Market Information Database are both available from the library’s databases page and Business Subject Gateway. Drop us an email on Ask a Librarian if you need help with using the databases, or to book an appointment with a librarian.
