Matalan founder in line for £250m payout

Press reports say that Hargreaves is in talks with banks and other investors in an effort to effect a £525m refinancing of the retailer. Part of the money would be used to repay Matalan’s £260m debt, with the rest going to controlling stakeholder Hargreaves. 

Hargreaves failed to sell Matalan, which he launched in 1985, earlier this year.
