Meanwhile, Whitechapel’s remaining fortunes – essentially the MG and Hitech-10 series of Unix workstation products – rest in the receivership hands of Peat, Marwick, McLintock: little interest has been shown in the MG series, now felt to be out of date, but negotiations are currently afoot with six interested parties two each from the US and West Germany, and one each in France and the Netherlands – for the design and manufacturing rights to the Hitech-10, based on the MIPS Computer RISC. Whitechapel had an association with Thomson in France, and ComputerTechnik Muller, Konstanz, West Germany, was to have built the Hitech-10 for Whitechapel. A decision between the six is expected next week.
