Administrators for Robson Brown have said ordinary creditors are likely to get back less than 19p for every £1 they are owed.

According to Marketing Services Financial Intelligence, the amount owed to creditors by Robson Brown is estimated in the statement of affairs at over £6.6 million but administrators Zolfo Cooper have described the likelihood of a 19p payout as an “optimistic assessment of the outcome”.

Meanwhile it was also revealed by Marketing Services Financial Intelligence last week that almost £9m of Robson Brown’s assets went missing between its last accounts being submitted and administrators being appointed.
