The board of directors at Spanish clothing designer Adolfo Dominguez SA will meet later today to consider the possibility of looking for a minority partner.

According to a report in the Spanish newspaper La Gaceta, the designer is to consider a new partner to try and ward off any further attempts of a takeover.

The chain was recently the subject of an attempted takeover by Spanish retailer Cortefiel.
