dms: I'd guess that the intermediary company is simply an economic safety net. Quoting the article: "It's understood Castle made sure enough motherboards were manufactured before the July 1 cut-off date, and then passed the lot onto Iyonix Ltd, who build the final machines and ships them to customers." It would therefore make sense to have the new company purchase the motherboards and keep them in stock and if sales don't go as expected then Iyonix Ltd. can go bust without Castle being in danger of going down with it. But as I said, it's only a guess.
