A buy-out team at clothing manufacturer Dewhirst has still not acquired enough shares to enable it to take complete ownership of the company. Under Stock Market rules, the team needs to acquire 90 per cent of the shareholding to enable it to take compulsory control of the remaining 10 per cent of the stock. By the end of the initial deadline on August 9, the team had secured 74.18 per cent of the shareholding. Now, after the team extended the deadline, it has gained 80.66 per cent of the stock - still short of the 90 per cent figure it is seeking.
