    Leven Car Company

    I was reading earlier that the company in the title have gone into administration.

    Obviously there are important issues to consider given people will likely be losing their jobs so soon after Christmas. However from a Hibs perspective am I right in thinking they are one of our major commercial partners? If so what impact will this have financially on the club?

    Hardly a major commercisl partner...more of an advertiser with the bill paid up front before the ads go up.

    No they're not trading.
    Put car into Leven Kia in Bankhead Drive for a service at 8:10 am yesterday (8th Jan). Went to collect it at 1:00 pm, place locked up and notices on all doors saying went into admin. on 07/01/2020.
    Went back at 4:00 pm, notice had changed to company in admin., with no date.
    Eventually got car back with service completed at lunchtime today.
    Had to pay administrators direct, rather than Leven Car Group.

    That doesn’t sound good.

    That is very early days into an admin event though.

    They might shut for a day or so until they get a grip on the books, but the administrators preference will be to continue trading and try to get a buyer for the business / parts of the business.
