It has been reported that Homebase's owner - Hilco Capital - is to propose a Company Voluntary Agreement (CVA) which will see the closure of around 60 of its 249 stores.

Sky News reports that approximately 10% of the 11,000 staff are expected to lose their jobs and references a range of "50 to 80 shops thought to include 18 which have already been closed in recent months".

The CVA will be handled by professional services organisation, Alvarez & Marsal, and is expected to launch in the early part of next week. 

The majority of Homebase's horticulture buying staff left the business earlier this week.
