Genesco, the owner of UK footwear retailer Schuh, has instructed Capa to seek occupancy cost savings across its 130 store estate.

The administrators of a fried chicken restaurant chain, who saved the business and most of its employees’ jobs via a sale, have instructed CAPA to audit the company’s sites.
CAPA will be undertaking full property audits at sites occupied by Dirtybird Restaurants, which traded as Bird Restaurants from prime London locations such as Camden, Canary Wharf, Shoreditch and Westfield.
Restructuring, recovery and insolvency firm BM Advisory appointed CAPA after being drafted in to find a way forward for the chain. Dirtybird Restaurants had been suffering a series of financial pressures, exacerbated by difficult trading conditions across the casual dining industry and an unsuccessful refinancing process.
In a public statement BM Advisory said the funding market for small and medium-sized businesses in this sector has narrowed, and the knock-on effects of this led to Dirtybird’s insolvency.

CAPA will be conducting a rates audit at properties around the north of England run by MUKR (formerly Mid-UK Recycling Ltd), after business recovery experts at PwC were called in at the 11th hour.
MUKR, based in Sleaford, Lincolnshire, had operated from various sites, recycling agricultural and industrial waste and providing renewable fuels. The business had suffered severe cashflow problems during the 18 months to June 2019, when a large capital expenditure programme, a fire at one of its plants, and a loss-making contract reduced revenues.
In the end, Michael Denny and Toby Underwood, of PwC, were appointed administrators of the business on June 12 2019.
