Scottish businesswoman warned after company liquidation

Date Added: 08/05/2013  

An entrepreneur has been warned that she cannot try to sell any of the remaining stock after the company was put into liquidation.

Sandra McClumpha, who led Fake Bake UK before the company was liquidated, is subject of an interim interdict granted at the Court of Session late last month.

Fake Bake UK was put into liquidation following a high-profile fall-out between Ms McClumpha and her former partner, Alan Love.

According to a report by the Glasgow Evening Times, Mr Love sought and obtained the interdict against Ms McClumpha, as well as Fake Bake UK's former director and manager Ronan Cruise and a new firm called Fake Bake United.

The businessman last night said: "An emergency meeting was scheduled in the Court of Session in Edinburgh on April 27 when an interim interdict was granted against the new company Fake Bake United, and both directors McClumpha and Cruise personally preventing them selling any Fake Bake UK stock."

Ms McClumpha confirmed she is the subject of an interim interdict but stated that she remains confident there will be an outcome acceptable to all parties.

Fake Bake UK fell apart after Ms McClumpha accused Mr Love of using the company's finances to fund his own luxury kitchen company Stone & Wolfe, which has also now entered liquidation.

A spokeswoman for the American firm Fake Bake stated customers are not going to be affected by the closure of the Fake Bake UK brand and explained the company is looking forward to the continued success of the tanning products all over the world.

Only a couple of weeks ago, more than 600 jobs were lost in Scotland as a result of the liquidation of Scottish Coal, which operated six open-cast coal mines in Scotland.

While 590 of its employees were informed they are being made redundant, more than 100 staff members have been kept on temporarily by the administrators as they consider the future of the company.
