Kingfisher (LSE:KGF)

Kingfisher began life as Woolworth Holdings back in 1982, as a parent company for Woolworths, B&Q and Woolworths Properties. The group acquired the electricals chain Comet and health retailer Superdrug in the 1980s before changing its name to Kingfisher in 1989. The group has rapidly expanded, acquiring retailers all over the world, but in 1999 its plan to buy supermarket group Asda was thwarted by US giant Wal-Mart. In 2003 the group demerged its electrical & furniture arms to form Kesa Electricals.
