Publisher Johnston Press has been bought out by its creditors and renamed JI Media.

The company went into administration last weekend, before announcing on Monday (19 November) that it had been sold. The new owners are planning to inject £35m into the business and cut the level of senior secured debt by £135m to £85m, with the remaining debt now due in December 2023.
