RBS,
Torex Retail‘s main
lender, has come to the rescue of the beleaguered company with a bail-out
package thought to be worth between £20m and £30m.

The deal, which will raise its banking facility by the reported amount,
was agreed after KPMG was drafted in by the bank to conduct a review. The
additional funds will be extended to the company for six months,
The Times
reported.  

Torex recently revealed that its debts would be £23.2m higher than expected
because of a number of contracts to supply point-of-sale software to retailers
being delayed, just eight days after issuing a statement to the City detailing a
number of new contract wins. 

New acting chief exec Keith Taylor, a turnaround expert who previously worked
in the NHS, had previously told The Times: ‘We are having very
constructive discussions with our lenders. I am very confident that these
constructive discussions will lead to a positive outcome.’
