More shareholders have come forward to back Chisbridge's bid to acquire technology recruiter InterQuest.

In a statement, released this morning, Chisbridge, a company set up by InterQuest chairman Gary Ashworth, CEO Chris Eldridge and chief financial officer David Bygrave, revealed its bid valuing the firm at 42p per share now has the backing of 52.06% of shareholders. More than 50% is required for the management buyout to be green lit.
