The Dusanj brothers have regained control of the Cains brewery and nine pubs from administrators and are also believed to be among the two final bidders for a further 26 freehold pubs. The amount paid has not been disclosed by administrators PricewaterhouseCoopers (PWC). Cains went in to administration in August after the Bank of Scotland refused to extend its facilities after it announced losses of £4.5m. The company got into trouble following a £37m reverse takeover of Honeycombe Leisure in May 2007, which saw Cains acquire 92 pubs, and a listing on the Alternative Investment Market. The Bank of Scotland provided £40m, of which £30m was a loan facility, £5m in working capital and £5m to fund refurbishment. The Dusanj brothers however still owned the freehold in a separate company along with around 10 freehold pubs. Cains had been paying rent of £500,000 a year on the brewery. PWC's Craig Livesey said: “After a difficult period of trading for the company in administration, we are pleased that a sale of the business as a going concern has been possible. “We believe that this sale gives the best chance for continued employment for the majority of the company’s staff, and also gives suppliers and customers an opportunity of continued business with the brewery.”
