Thursday, 14 July 2011 - a great story

The company, run by the publicity shy tycoon Mike Ashley, has hit its profit target of some £200 million.

The 2000 staff, whose average salary is £20k/ year, have been awarded shares worth some £40k each.

The company has got some very positive advertising on the news on TV.

The staff have to hold onto their shares for at least a year. I assume they will continue to work hard in order to keep profits high.

The customers seem happy.

It seems like a win-win situation to me.
