The Mike Ashley-owned retailer, which is likely to be a key player in the next phase of the antitrust investigation, has long been irked by major brands favouring rival JD Sports with their best ranges.
Billionaire Mike Ashley failed to appoint an auditor in time for the company's annual general meeting, throwing it deeper into chaos.
The meeting will see majority owner Mike Ashley face opposition to his re-election as a director.
The retailer is struggling to find a replacement auditor but has said its board is comfortable with its latest accounts. CEO Mike Ashley has admitted that buying House of Fraser may have been a mistake.
The company said its financial chief will step down as the retailer reported a drop in annual profit after a daylong wait for its results.
