News roundup—Aurum, Next,, and more

Aurum Holdings, the parent company of
jewellery merchants Mappin & Webb, Watches of
Switzerland, and Goldsmiths, is
preparing to convert a portion of its debt into equity, in
order to cut its borrowings from £97 million to
approximately £55 million, according to The Times.

Next is included in a BBC report about companies that offer
“unsolicited credit”-giving customers credit
accounts without their being aware of it.

The BBC also reports on a glitch that sent myriad customers
email confirmations of orders sent by dozens of other
customers. (A friend of Catalogue e-business was among
those who received the superfluous confirmations, and he hopes
that Mrs S of Barry enjoys her copy of the collectors’ edition
of Jesus Christ Superstar.)
