The creditors of sit-up Limited, the digital broadcaster behind Price Drop and Bid TV, have today voted overwhelmingly through the proposed company voluntary arrangement (CVA), which will enable the business to restructure its fixed cost-base.


Will Wright, partner at KPMG and ‘supervisor’ of the CVA, said: “Today’s ‘yes’ vote gives sit-up Limited the green light to renegotiate its infrastructure supply contracts, rightsizing its fixed cost base and giving it a platform to trade on a more competitive basis.


“Over 75% of creditors had to vote in favour of the CVA to pass the resolution. Today’s vote saw us secure significantly more than this, with 99% of all creditors voting in favour of the CVA.”
