After nearly three months in jail, the founders of software firm Lernout & Hauspie have been released on bail pending trial for fraud and stock manipulation.
Jo Lernout and Pol Hauspie were set free on the understanding that they would co-operate with investigators, would not leave the country and would not attempt to communicate with each other.
Initially the Belgian judge presiding over their case ruled that their release may "endanger" further investigations.
Also this week, the company, now headed up by Philippe Bodson, announced that it had reached an agreement to sell subsidiary Mendez for $27m.
The offer came from Lionbridge Technologies and may reflect the desperation felt by the troubled company. The original asking price for translation company Mendez was $160m.
However, as L&H is under bankruptcy protection, a commercial court approval process for the deal requires that the company holds a public auction allowing others to bid for Mendez.
Assuming approval is given, the auction of Mendez is expected in August.
The bargain basement sale is expected to bring in some much needed cash as the company has until 18 September to present a watertight restructuring plan to the commercial court.
Failure to do will mean L&H loses its protection from bankruptcy.
