UK - Broadcaster ITV is looking at a range of options to reform its pension scheme, Global Pensions has confirmed.
Head of financial and commercial communication Louise Evans said: "It would be premature to comment at the moment. This is not to say there will not be some kind of changes, but no decision has been made as of yet."
She added the situation faced by the broadcaster was by no means unique and the range of possible options being considered by the company was in line with those taken by similar companies over the past few years.
The broadcaster implemented some reforms to its pension scheme a few years ago - raising the retirement age from 60 to 63 and changing the accrual rate from 1/50th to 1/60th of salary.
According to the firm's latest annual report, it paid a deficit funding contribution of £33m into the DB scheme during 2007.
An announcement on the changes to the scheme is expected when the company announces end-of-year financial results in March.
