Scheme background

Tesco PLC and Tesco Stores Limited (together 'Tesco') agreed with the FCA (under its statutory powers) to establish a compensation scheme for certain shareholders and bondholders to be administered by KPMG (the 'Scheme').

The Scheme was set up to compensate those affected by Tesco's trading misstatement of 29th August 2014, which was later corrected on 22nd September 2014.

As a result, Tesco paid compensation to certain purchasers of Tesco shares and bonds in the period from 29 August to 19 September 2014.

The Scheme was announced on 28 March 2017 with the deadline for making a claim being 22 February 2018. The Scheme closed on 30 November 2018 resulting in the cessation of KPMG’s Administrator role.

The FCA's Final Notice, which details the terms of the Scheme, as agreed between Tesco and the FCA, is available here.
