Troubled Dutch retailer Ahold has announced that its new chief Anders Moberg is to reveal his strategy for the group’s future at a 4 September meeting.

Moberg had previously said he would wait until October to unveil his plans, giving him more time to work out his strategy for the recovery of the Dutch retail giant, which was hit by an accounting scandal in February, reported Reuters.

Also scheduled for the September shareholders meeting is the formal appointment of new CEO Moberg and new finance director Hannu Ryopponen.

The meeting will also include an explanation by Ahold for the delay in the release of consolidated 2002 financial statements.
