How Steinhoff shares doubled in just five days

Embattled Steinhoff International's share price rose by almost 27% this week to over R3.

It followed an announcement by the retailer that it has begun a consent process with creditors to finalise a debt restructuring plan.

Steinhoff has been on the brink of insolvency after the accounting irregularities scandal revealed last year.

CapeTalk's Kieno Kammies speaks to the founder of Herenya Capital Advisors, Petri Redelinghuys to find out how Steinhoff got its shares to double in just five days.

He says the release of Steinhoff’s interim results could have had a role to play in the dramatic increase in share price.
