JESSOPS IN JEOPARDY

CAMERA retailer Jessops had its shares suspended yesterday, as shareholders prepared to vote on winding up the firm today as part of a restructuring. Jessops’ 213 shops, which were sold to private firm Snap Equity in September, will continue to trade, but its old parent, Jessops plc, is now set to be wound up. If shareholders accept 9.7p for every 100 shares owned, the firm will be liquidated.
