Significant Share Movement at Villa

The document is not on Companies House yet but I have got from another source a very significant share allocation document.

Remember I posted a couple of weeks ago RAL (Reform Acquisitions Limited) who owns Villa had lifted the restrictions on the number of shares to be held.

Well an Allotment of Shares document was posted on the 18/12/13 showing that £90million of shares had been allotted. This took the total shares at Villa to £223 million and thus above the original £200M that we did have.

You ask – so what ??

Well previously when shares had been allotted this was in effect money put into the club usually by randy in swapping debt for shares at usually £5M a go. This is £90 MILLION we are talking about and if this is the same as before would wipe out a large chunk of the debt in one go.

Or it could be investment into the club ….

As I suggested when we saw the share lift that was more than just tidying up the books, it allowed for this move ……

Either way this is good news –

If wiping off a large % of the debt then wages can be increased

If it is an investor then it means more money

    Badger, this whole thread is a bag of bollocks.

    Some of the numpties on here commenting on an equity/debt swap defies belief.

    Quite horrified at how readily many will sell their soul in the hope of a better side.

    A fantastic present I received over Christmas was a hardback book of newspaper headlines regarding the Villa over the years. Look back over that, learn a little, remember a bit, and then say you’re happy to flog us off to a corporate brand in the hope of seeing a few better players.

    Either Lambert about to shut everyone up & make some good signings or we are struggling to find players who want to come to the club ?

    Or Randy is simply getting some of his money back and an investor is purely buying shares.. doesnt mean we will see any of it at an operating level !! Dont need it anyway weve just bought Grant Holt !! when we beat Arsenal they buy Ozil…… we go an trump that when they beat us!

Right or Wrong? What do YOU think?
