The relevant entity is Laura Ashley Holdings Plc (the "Company"). Mr Yee Kee Shian, Leon stepped down as a Director of the Company on 16 March 2020. The Company subsequently appointed PricewaterhouseCoopers as administrators on 23 March 2020.

This was due to the COVID-19 outbreak, which had an immediate and significant impact on trading of the Company and its subsidiaries (the "Group"). Based on the Group's cashflow forecasts and the increased uncertainty, the Group expected that it would not be in a position to draw down additional funding in a timely manner sufficient to support its working capital requirements, and therefore the Company appointed administrators.

The Company moved into creditors voluntary liquidation with the appointment of a voluntary liquidator on 31 March 2021.
