The fallout from the Steinhoff corruption scandal not only affected the company itself, but companies linked to its shareholders.
Viceroy, the American investment research company, released a report which shows that Steinhoff used several offbalance sheet vehicles to artificially inflate earnings.
Stephen Grootes spoke to shareholder activist Theo Botha to find out more on how the Steinhoff corruption scandal unraveled and what should happen going forward.
The board of Steinhoff need to come out with auditors financial statements or some form of financial statements so that the public and shareholders can get to grips with what actually happened.— Theo Botha, shareholder activist
