DFS is not for sale, says founder

Lord Kirkham has said DFS, the sofa chain he founded in 1969, is not for sale, even though three private equity groups submitted bids or reaffirmed interest in the chain last week. “I am categorically not interested in selling the business,” Kirkham said. “I don't need the money. I'm loaded.” Kirkham denied his comments were a tactic to extract a higher price for the 79-store business.
