HMV Group plc, HMV Music Ltd, HMV UK Ltd, HMV (IP) Ltd and Fopp Entertainments 
Ltd (together “HMV” or “the Companies”) – in administration - Update 
The Joint Administrators to HMV today confirm that gift cards can be redeemed 
in stores from Tuesday 22 January.  Additionally, the Joint Administrators 
confirm that proceeds raised by HMV through the sale of charity releases 
(including the Hillsborough Justice Collective single) will be paid in full as 
soon as possible. 
Nick Edwards, Joint Administrator, commented: “The ability of Administrators to 
honour gift vouchers will depend on the specific circumstances of each case.  
Since our appointment as Joint Administrators on Tuesday afternoon, we have 
been urgently assessing the Companies’ financial position.  I am pleased to 
confirm that, having concluded this assessment, we are able to honour gift 
cards.  I can also confirm that all money raised by HMV for various charities 
will be paid in full.  We recognise that both of these matters have caused 
concern for individuals and organisations affected and are pleased to have 
reached a positive outcome. 
“We will continue to assess the longer term options for the business whilst 
continuing to trade.  I am hopeful this process will result in the business 
continuing as a going concern.” 
Nick Edwards, Rob Harding and Neville Kahn were appointed Joint Administrators 
to HMV on 15 January 2013.
