WH Smith’s US am­bi­tion

The Daily Telegraph - Business - - Front Page -

WH SMITH came close to buy­ing Barnes & No­ble, the largest book­shop chain in the US, ear­lier this year, in a deal that would have been its big­gest-ever ac­qui­si­tion.

The at­tempt to buy Barnes & No­ble was pre­vi­ously men­tioned in a law­suit filed by its for­mer CEO, De­mos Parneros. The Wall Street

Jour­nal yesterday named WH Smith as the wouldbe buyer.
