Future 3000, one of the South Coast’s biggest leisure operators, with nightclubs and bars in the Bournemouth and Poole area, is up for sale after being put into administration. Deloitte said the group was expected to deliver operating profits of around £1.5m on sales of £9m this year. Meanwhile BDO Stoy Hayward is understood to be assessing options for Regent Inns, owners of the Walkabout bars and Jongleurs comedy clubs, which has experienced weaker performance in recent weeks. Plans include a possible merger with 3D entertainment, which is 49% owned by Luminar. The Sunday Express 27/07/08 (Financial) page 3
