Thousands of private shareholders in SFI Group will receive nothing from the sale of the pub operator. The Slug & Lettuce group was once valued at £225m, but will be carved up and sold in a process that will just about cover its £80m debts. Property magnate Robert Tchenguiz will take most of the group, while the rest will be placed in administration. Tchenguiz is aiming to build a large-scale company out of his growing collection of bars. The Mail on Sunday 05/06/05 (Financial Mail) page 6 The Sunday Telegraph 05/06/05 (Business) page 2
