AUSTRALIA: Coles Myer Abnormals To Escalate Above $100m
Some analysts have suggested that cost-cutting reviews could result in Coles adding $A20m-$A30m more to the $A85m the group flagged on 19 July 2001 as being a likely write-down figure for the "horror" year.
They reasoned that the board will be anxious to off-load as many abnormal losses as possible, to start the balance sheet relatively afresh for 2001-2002.
It is reported that Coles' directors also discussed a replacement for CEO, Dennis Eck, and further restructuring options in the group's non-food assets.
