Debenhams bondholders to back £200m restructuring loan

Debenhams bondholders are expected to back a £200m restructuring loan, with a statement today claiming a majority had “provided consent to the amendments sought to the existing notes”.

The deadline for bondholders to accept the loan is 5pm tonight (28 March).

News of a loan will come as a blow to Mike Ashley, who’s Sports Direct company announced yesterday that it was considering a £61.4m bid to take control of the embattled department store chain, despite the retailer rejecting its previous proposals.
