Patisserie Holdings, the owner of cafe chain Patisserie Valerie, has called a shareholder meeting relating to the proposed plan to raise about £15m to provide immediate liquidity to the group. 

The company called the meeting for November 1.

It also said its new shares on London's AIM would remain suspended and commence only once the its ordinary shares ceased to be suspended from trading. 

Patisserie Valerie, which was rocked by an accounting scandal and the arrest of its finance boss last week, was saved thanks to £20m of loans from its chairman, the entrepreneur Luke Johnson. 

The new equity and debt injection helped save 2,500 jobs and stave off the company's collapse after Britain's tax office said it was owed £1.14m.

The company has two outlets in Dublin.
