Shares of Frasers Group PLC (LON: FRAS) dipped 2.3% on Wednesday after Mike Ashley’s firm delayed its annual results presentation for the second year in a row.
Frasers Group, the owner of the sportswear giant Sports Direct and House of Fraser, was due to report its full-year results on Thursday 13 August. However, the retailer says it needs an additional week to complete its accounts.
“Due to the undoubted scrutiny of our accounts, management and our auditors RSM will take this extra week to robustly review the final accounts and ensure that all necessary disclosures have been completed,” the company said in a statement.
Last year, Ashley’s Fraser Group delayed the presentation of results as well. Yesterday, Fraser Group share price soared over 5.4% on reports that the firm is looking to buy 30 stores from rival retailer Debenhams.
Fraser Group share price now trades at 287.4p, which is 2.31% down on the day.
