@MrContrarian


So over the last few years Naked online slaughtered Majestic in wine in the street. Instead of fighting back the Majestic management team bought out the Naked management team, thereby giving the Naked team a good exit. Then Majestic sold their street, and became fully online.

At the end of the day this looks very much like the Majestic management team buying themselves a Naked career lifeboat with Majestic shareholder funds. If that is not agent principal dilemma I don't know what is.
