(Reuters) – Activist fund Crystal Amber more than doubled its stake in De La Rue Plc <DLAR.L>, days after the banknote and printer warned of “significant doubt” that it can continue as a going concern and said it would scrap its dividend to tackle mounting debt.

Crystal Amber on Tuesday disclosed a stake of 14.33% as at Nov. 29, from an earlier stake of 7.12%, making the fund De La Rue’s biggest investor.
