Criminal investigators were now reviewing documents and data seized during raids, the prosecutors' office in the German city of Oldenburg said in a statement on Wednesday.

Steinhoff bought the Willenhall-based chain of discount stores for £610 million past year.

It added: "We are wondering if the investigations may not also be extended to the chairman of the supervisory board Christo Wiese, as he has been closely related to various deals and as the board chairman has to fulfil certain supervisory duties".

Shares in Poundland's parent firm Steinhoff International have lost nearly 60% of their value after its chief executive quit amid allegations of accounting irregularities.

It came as chief executive Markus Jooste resigned and the South African group postponed its full-year results. "In addition, the Company will determine whether any prior years" financial statements will need to be restated'.
