Department store chain Myer canvassed rival David Jones about what would have been a $A3 billion merger in late 2013, but the potential deal never got off the ground. Myer shares fell a record low of less than $A0.50 on 22 February, amid growing fears about its financial health. Ian Moir, the CEO of David Jones’ parent Woolworths Holdings, said he has no interest in making a bid for Myer. David Jones’ operating profit fell by 29.4 per cent in the December half, and Moir said his focus is on improving its performance.
