Struggling retailer Myer is saddled with $A2.7 billion worth of leases, and it has been suggested that it could enter into voluntary administration in order to get out of its lease commitments. Such a strategy was adopted by retailers OrotonGroup and SumoSalad. However, a spokesperson for Myer says it has no plans to enter into voluntary administration, noting that it continues to be solvent. Joe Hayes of Wexted Advisors says that entering into voluntary administration could create more problems for Myer than it might solve.
