Enron shareholders close to multi-billion dollar payout

Enron shareholders could take their portion of $7.2bn payout by end of the year

Enron shareholders are just months away from receiving their piece of a
$7.2bn (£4.1bn) settlement, after a judge approved a distribution plan.

US district judge Melinda Harmon approved distribution to eligible
shareholders, who could potentially take their share by the end of the year,
reported
the
Houston Chronicle
.

A spokesman for the law firm handling the litigation said the approval was a
‘big step’ towards distribution.

The payout will be the highest ever in US securities litigation, beating
WorldCom litigation payout of $6.1bn.

The bulk of the payouts were funded by various financial institutions, former
auditors Andersen, and Enron directors.
