THG has sold two of its loss-making divisions for a total of about £4 million in a bid to “simplify and streamline its operations”.
The ecommerce giant confirmed its OnDemand business has been sold to its management funded by investment firm Gordon Brothers, alongside, ProBikeKit being sold to high-street retailer Frasers Group.
This comes as the company suffered a £549.7 million pre-tax loss last year, widened from £186.3 million in the same period in 2021, prompting the strategic review.

“I am delighted to see management and Gordon Brothers continuing the fantastic work of the OnDemand team, and I have no doubt the ProBikeKit business will continue to thrive under Frasers Group.
“We will remain close partners with both the OnDemand management team and Frasers Group through continued Ingenuity services.”
