When Highbury House Communications, the North London-based publisher of many well-known newsstand magazines, finally limped into administration in early 2006, it had total net debts of £29.5m. Much of this had been ratcheted up by overly ambitious executives who overvalued acquisitions including Paragon Communications and underestimated the potential costs involved in launching new media products. In its terminal stage, one-time Sun editor and media hard man Kelvin Mackenizie took over the helm, allegedly sinking some £1.5m of his own money into the company. But after three months he walked away, admitting defeat. It seemed that this business was a complete 'basket case'.
