Reports suggest unsecured creditors in deal to take hold of the troubled consolidator.
The takeover of Towergate has taken a new twist with reports that unsecured creditors are set to grab hold of the business.
According to the Financial Times the move will involve a cash injection of £300m from the junior creditors led by Highbridge Capital Management - an arm of JP Morgan - and involving private equity firm KKR, and Sankaty Advisors, a global credit specialist.
On Monday Towergate announced that it was in the process of selling to secured creditors in a move that would halve its debt.
The plan was to swap the debt of existing senior secured creditors into £375m of new debt, £150m of payment in kind notes and 100% of the firm's shareholding.
