WH Smith is one of the UK high street's oldest names with roots dating back to 1792. Until recently the company was split into two main operations: retail and news distribution. In 2006, after a series of disposals that saw publishing house Hodder Headline sold, the company demerged its distribution arm to leave it focused purely on retail.
