DIY retail group Kingfisher is to part company with chief executive Véronique Laury and consider closing 15 stores.The owner of B&Q will also shut 19 Screwfix outlets in Germany and “address the underperformance” of its Castorama business in France. In addition, it has warned that it expects gross margin to be flat this year after “incremental clearance costs”. The developments were announced alongside full-year results, showing a 53% fall in pre-tax profits from £682m to £322m on flat sales of £11.7bn. Underlying pre-tax profits declined by 13% to £693m, while like-for-like sales came in 1.6% lower, hit by weakness in France. Kingfisher says Laury “fully supports” the decision to seek a successor as it enters the final year of its five-year transformation plan. Chairman Andy Cosslett says: “We are now moving into a new phase where we can extract more of the benefits resulting from the hard work that has been put in, and it is therefore timely that we commence a succession process."

Kingfisher began life as Woolworth Holdings back in 1982, as a parent company for Woolworths, B&Q and Woolworths Properties. The group acquired the electricals chain Comet and health retailer Superdrug in the 1980's before changing its name to Kingfisher in 1989. The group has rapidly expanded, acquiring retailers all over the world, but in 1999 its plan to buy supermarket group Asda was thwarted by US giant Wal-Mart. In 2003 the group demerged its electrical & furniture arms to form Kesa Electricals.
