Dream Direct Group plc in Administration
Dream Direct Group Plc, a home shopping retailer of nostalgic, leisure and entertainment based
products aimed at the over 50's market was placed into Administration on 31 May 2007 following
difficult trading conditions.
Julia Branson and Angus Martin, from Deloitte's Reorganisation Services division have been appointed
Administrators of Dream Direct Group plc and its subsidiary Dream Direct Limited. Dream Direct
Guernsey Limited is not subject to the administration proceedings.
The Dream Direct Group plc operates from premises in Witney, Oxfordshire, employing 37 staff. Its
turnover at the end of the year was £17.7m.
The Administrators have sold certain assets of the Group, to Express Gifts Limited, on behalf of The
Webb Group. Unfortunately, it is anticipated that the workforce will be made redundant.
Angus Martin, Partner at Deloitte, said: "This is the best outcome that could have been achieved. The
administrators have made arrangements with Express Gift Limited for all outstanding orders placed by
members of the public to be fulfilled."
