Kwik Save lines up administration

Kwik save could enter a pre-pack to save the business, while KPMG helps it look for options

Kwik Save has filed a notice of intention to enter administration.

The troubled retailer is working with KPMG restructuring experts in a bid to
look for new funds, and is understood to be considering entering into a
pre-packaged administration.

Pre-packs see troubled business find funding or new owners prior to entering
administration. They then file for administration and sell the company’s assets
immediately into the new structure, free of many of the previous
company’s credit liabilities.

But if new funding is not found, then 2,000 jobs at the retailer are under
threat. It has a deadline of next Friday to refinance or enter into
administration.
