WR RefrigerationUK: WR Refrigeration’s unsecured creditors will only receive, at best, 1p in the £1, the administrator PWC has revealed.

PWC’s first progress report also reveals that the company’s secured creditor Icelandic bank Kaupthing is only likely to receive around 15-22% of the £31m it is owed. Preferential creditors – mainly employees – have been paid in full.

WR Refrigeration, one of the UK’s largest refrigeration contractors, owed over £80m when it entered administration in October last year, leaving total unsecured creditor debts of over £12m.

All of WR’s 36 leasehold properties have since been vacated with the exception of the former company’s head office in Thurmaston, Leicester. This is currently occupied by Integral pending a move to new purpose-built offices. Integral bought a number of contracts from the administrator at the end of October 2013.
