However, it is expected closures will take place over the next four to six weeks in line with the 66 stores already identified for closure.
Nick Edwards, joint administrator, said: "This step has been taken in order to enhance the prospects of the restructured business continuing as a going concern.
"Together with the previously identified 66 closures, this restructuring will result in a residual portfolio of some 116 stores."
Administrators were called in to HMV on January 15.
