Tesco is in a hurry to reduce their debt pile and avoid a costly share rights issue to raise fresh finance. The giant UK retailer is going through turbulent times.

And they have had to take a giant write-down in the value of their extensive property portfolio, leading to the highest recorded losses in their history.
