Bell Pottinger has failed to secure a buyer after it was removed from the UK PR Association and slammed by both the UK and SA government for running a racially fueled campaign which boosted the ideal of ‘white monopoly capital’ in the country.

According to Huffington Post, BDO has been called in to take over the running of the company after there were no buyers who came forward to initiate a sale.

“Following an immediate assessment of the financial position, the administrators have made a number of redundancies.

“The administrators are now working with the remaining partners and employees to seek an orderly transfer of Bell Pottinger’s clients to other firms in order to protect and realise value for creditors.

“We have taken appropriate steps to preserve the rights Bell Pottinger may have in relation to the failure of the business,” read a statement by BDO.
