As RCF V, Annex Fund and RCF VI currently hold in aggregate 609,704,057 Wolf shares, which equates to a relevant interest of approximately 56.1%, entering into the amended Bridge Facility is deemed to be a related party transaction under AIM Rules.

The AIM-listed firm also said it will continue to review its long term capital requirements as the operating turnaround plan progresses and further value adding opportunities and cost reduction initiatives are investigated.

Richard Lucas, Wolf’s interim managing director, said: "The operating turnaround plan is delivering improved processing plant performance and is also building knowledge and experience across the business.
