The news comes after Wolford recorded a 5% fall in revenue to €154.28m (£142.4m) for the 12 months to April 2017.

Meanwhile, earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) plummeted from €8.38m (£7.7m) in 2016 to a loss of €3.39m (£3.1m).

Asish Sensarma stepped down from his role of CEO at Wolford last month and was replaced by Axel Dreher, the former COO and CFO at the company, on August 1.
