Dec 20 (Reuters) - British electricity supplier Yu Group has found further accounting problems with old financial statements which are expected to widen its full-year loss, it said on Thursday.
The warning came a day after the UK’s financial watchdog said it was investigating the accuracy of announcements made by the company between March 6 and Oct. 24.
Yu shares, which trade on the secondary market of the London Stock Exchange, hit a record low in light morning trade.
The company now expects a 2018 adjusted pretax loss of between 7.35 million pounds ($9.3 million) and 7.85 million pounds.
Yu Group, which supplies gas and electricity to British businesses, had said in October its profitability would take a 10-million-pound hit from accounting errors revealed in an internal review.
