PHONES 4 U - Creditor Factsheet

You will be aware of the fact that Phones 4 U has sought to appoint PWC as Administrators of the company following the decision that they reportedly have little alternative but to cease trading as the result of the news that the network operators will not be renewing their contracts in 2015.

Phones 4U in Administration

High Street retailer of mobile communications, Phones 4U, has entered Administration putting over 5,000 jobs at risk.

The chain, which is owned by private equity firm BC Partners, said their 500 stores would be closed on Monday.

Phones 4U say that the failure is due to mobile networks Vodafone and EE's decision not to renew their supply contracts, following 02's decision to end their contract earlier this year. "if mobile network operators decline to supply us, we do not have a business", said David Kessler of Phones 4U.
