The Nasdaq and LSE-listed imaging business said it would disclose weaknesses in its internal controls relating to IT general controls, revenue and billing processes, stock and rental assets custody and tracking process, and income tax process.

Danka CEO Todd Mavis said that an ‘exhaustive management assessment’ had identified the weaknesses, and ‘aggressive remediation activities’ would continue for another year.

It posted year end losses of $27.9m (£15.4m), including increased costs driven by $7.3m in Sarbox compliance external expenses, and a $3.6m bad debt adjustment relating to US trade debtors.

US-based CFO Mark Wolfinger has also announced his retirement. Wolfinger has served at the company since 1998.
