The editor of the Sunday Business Post has said he is confident the paper's parent company will emerge from examinership in a stable financial state.

Cliff Taylor said he was optimistic that investors will emerge during the examinership process.

Mr Taylor said it is too early to say if there has been any interest in taking over the newspaper, but he hopes that any new owners will not cut pay to reduce costs.

"I'm confident that there will be significant interest in buying the company out of examinership. It is then a question of sitting down with the new owners and seeing what their plans are for the paper,'' he said.

Mr Taylor also confirmed that the paper will go to print this weekend, without any changes to its content or its online output.
