Toys Were Us as Pension Protection Fund throw their toys out!

After the news that the American parent company of Toys r Us had filed for bankruptcy in September, it comes as no surprise that Toys r Us UK Limited in the UK are struggling.

Toys r Us UK Limited are putting proposals to creditors for a Company Voluntary Arrangement (CVA). They will need at least 75% of the creditors to vote in favour of the CVA for it to go ahead.

However, the Pension Protection Fund (PPF) are demanding payment of £9m to secure the pension plan should the CVA fail. If that money is not forthcoming it is likely that the CVA will fail and Toys r Us UK Limited will slip into administration with the loss of some 3,200 jobs.

The vote is on Thursday 21 December ………….. watch this space!
