Harris Ventures has sold its final stockholding in retailer Carpetright following a series of earlier share disposals.

The investment company — for whom Carpetright founder Lord Harris is a director and shareholder — divested its final 2m ordinary shares, representing around 3 per cent of the company’s stock, yesterday.

That followed the earlier disposal by Harris Ventures of around 3.5m Carpetright shares since October, adding to the 3.1m at £4.30 per share sold by Lord Harris and Harris Ventures combined in September.
