​Wilko administrators to carry out review of £77m dividends payout


Wilko’s administrators PwC will conduct a review into the dividends paid out to investors in the decade leading up to the retailer’s collapse.

PwC will question majority shareholder Lisa Wilkinson over the £77m paid out to the Wilkinson family and the chain’s other directors as part of a wider investigation into company transactions prior to administration, according to The Times.

The review comes as MPs call for an inquiry into the dividends paid out to the Wilkinson family as the company’s pension fund is taken into the Pension Protection Fund (PPF).
