The article reports that the collapse of Allders PLC in January 2005 has put the spotlight on little-known restructuring retail specialist Hilco Co. The Great Britain division Hilco is part of a consortium of investors that bought up Lehman Brothers' debt in Allders. Further details of the consortium, which is named Epsilon Investments, are shrouded in mystery. Epsilon is said to be registered in Nevis, with its directors resident in Monaco, although Great Britain's most famous retailer Philip Green has said publicly that he is not involved.
