“If the group remains unable to access the requisite level of funding, then the company will need to consider all appropriate options,” it said in a statement.
MUI, which holds 51% of the company including its owner Khoo Kay Peng’s stake, will not provide a further cash injection.
The retailer, famous for its floral prints, said sales for the first seven weeks of 2020 were flat and is planning a turnaround strategy.
For the 26 weeks to 31 December, total sales dropped 10.8% to £109.6mln, due to "weaker consumer spending".
