Tim Bowdler: Johnston Press Share Crash Is “Mentally Disappointing”

Outgoing Johnston Press chief executive Tim Bowdler broke his company's silence over its plunging share-price today with an interview for Press Gazette in which he described the trading low as "mentally disappointing".

He conceded that there was little the Group could do to protect itself from the markets other than manage the business "as best we can".

He added: "Our job is to try and bring about circumstances which improve the way in which the company is observed and hope that that does reflect in an increase and improvement in the share price."

However according to the interviewer, he refused to comment directly about the future of The Scotsman, Scotland on Sunday and Edinburgh Evening News.

As of around 3pm, shares were up slightly, to stand at 8.14p.
