Aperture update

The administrators responsible for handling Aperture Trading Limited have continued to trade the business since to enable time for a sale of business process to take place.

“Unfortunately, no acceptable offer has been received following this accelerated marketing process and, as a result, trading will cease immediately,” Tim Bateson, restructuring director at KPMG, said.

“While we will be retaining a small skeleton workforce in the short term to assist us with the wind down process, the majority of the 330 staff will regrettably be made redundant. All affected staff have been informed and will be paid for their time working for the joint administrators.

“We’d like to thank all employees for the support, service and co-operation they have provided to the company, both before and during the administration.”

Any parties who may be interested in acquiring the company’s assets on a piecemeal basis should contact Alice Hutson: alice.hutson@kpmg.co.uk
