CAPE TOWN (Reuters) – Steinhoff (J:) will struggle to turn a profit in coming years despite strong turnover as it restructures following an accounting scandal, the South African retailer said in a presentation to investors on Tuesday.
Steinhoff in July reported a 356 million euro ($401 million) half-year loss from continuing operations.
Since flagging holes in its accounts in December 2017, estimates of losses stemming from alleged accounting fraud are now as high $7 billion.
