Shareholders are willing to inject the cash later this year to help reduce net debt, Ocado’s finance director Jason Gissing told the Financial Times.
Ocado's debt stood at£110 million in the year to December 31, 2007. In 2006, it was£86.5 million.
Sales growth has slowed from last year’s 25 per cent increase, but remained up by a fifth in the current calendar year, according to Gissing.
The retailer’s pre tax losses for the year to December 31 stood at£39.7 million, compared to£44.2 million in the previous year.
