This chapter tracks the final 18 months of a business that was slowly fading into corporate obscurity, holed fatally by a massive fraud and victim of a one-sided deal with its bankers that resulted in the disposal of most of its profitable divisions. GEC’s Arnold Weinstock played a key role in the final stages, but ultimately withdrew its offer to buy the remaining activities, forcing Anderson to concede defeat. Although Ferranti disappeared as trading operation in December 1993, the name lived on in various management buy-outs and a pension scheme that ironically has continued to flourish.
