Topshop owner in talks to secure £30m lifeline

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-54950041

Scratting around for 30m.

15 years ago- 

The billionaire revealed a £1.3bn payout yesterday as he unveiled Arcadia's annual results. Mr Green owns 92% of the business and will therefore receive £1.17bn. The balance will go to the banking group HBOS, which bankrolled his purchase of the business for £850m three years ago and owns 8% of the shares.

Arcadia Group is on the verge of becoming the latest Covid pandemic-induced high street causality, with reports suggesting it is about to go into administration – a move that could put 15,000 jobs at risk.

According to Sky News, Green’s retail empire is preparing to appoint administrators from Deloitte as early as next week, after talks with a number of lenders about an emergency £30 million loan hit a dead end.

 

1.3bln pulled out.

Now cant 'afford' a 30m loan.
