Stewart's new sponsors
It remains to be seen which are the companies involved but Stewart was talking to British Telecom and MCI about backing from their planned merger - which would have created a company called Concert. This fell through and MCI was later taken over by Worldcom - which may be one of Stewart's backers.
All Stewart will reveal at the moment is that his new backers are both high-technology multinationals.
