Is Pollock in for a huge payday?

Rumours are circulating that a Chess auction is in the making after reports broken by the Telegraph emerged which indicated David Pollock, CEO, is looking to offload a controlling stake in the company.

The company is estimated to be worth in the region of £150 million. Pollock appointed Rothschild earlier this year to oversee a competitive auction process which could see acquisitive companies such as Daisy enter the bidding.
