A Canadian music entrepreneur rescued HMV from collapse, after taking over 100 shops and saving 1,500 jobs.
Doug Putman, who also runs the Canadian retailer Sunrise Records, bought the UK music and film retail chain, beating competition from Sports Direct boss Mike Ashley.
HMV fell into administration just after Christmas, citing difficult conditions on UK high streets and competition from streaming services such as Netflix and Spotify.
