      That's certainly a possibility. On the other hand, that *might* be a reflection of Enta's history in recent years, not just the state of the MS market in general.

    Let me guess, the receiver males a load of redundancies after securing their own fees, tells others they are expected to continue to work but there's no guarantee of their pay by the company telling them to continue working (ie the receiver), and in the meantime all creditors except the receiver just have to hang around waiting for whatever KPMG deems to be the best option, with no comebacks against the receiver if creditors disagree with option / decisions or takes ages to for anything?

    worked for a competor of theirs

    Now I just wonder what my old MD would make of it all.
