Crystal Amber, the largest shareholder in Johnston Press, with 20.4% shareholding, is reportedly meeting with Rhodes, Johnston’s interim chair, to discuss ways to revive the fortunes of the heavily indebted publisher. Discussions include, reportedly, ousting Highfield. Rhodes, who has chaired the company for just a couple of weeks, is said to have asked Rothschild to examine Johnston’s refinancing options. Anonymous shareholder:
Highfield got a huge bonus following the restructure of the business two years ago. But since that restructure shareholders have lost 90% of their money.
