Durban based Mr Price has concluded negotiations in terms of which the Galaxy jewellery division will, subject to the satisfactory conclusion of due diligence and the fulfillment of various conditions precedent, be sold to a consortium comprised of management of that division. The effective date of the transaction is 27 March 2005.
The directors of Mr Price consider that the business of Galaxy does not represent a core retail activity of the Mr Price group and believe that the sale of the division will not have a material impact on the earnings of the group.
