Kroenke Increases His Share Holdings

Kroenke Increases His Share Holdings

It appears that American business tycoon, Stan Kroenke has snaffled further shares in Arsenal Football Club.

I won't pretend to know anything at all with regards to shares, the purchase of & takeovers, hostile or otherwise, but even a fat neanderthal like me can do simple mathmatics.

A couple of weeks ago Kroenke announced he had purchase 9.99% of shares from ITV. Then it was revealed the Arsenal shareholder Danny Fiszman inadvertently sold 1.27% of his shares to Kroenke via his company JP Morgan Chase Bank. Giving him a grand total of 11.26% of Arsenal's shares.

A friend of my sent me a link to the 'PlusMarketGroup' website where an article states that Kroenke has given 'Notification of major interest in shares'. It is in this article that it is revealed that Kroenke has crossed the 12% threshold taking his current ownership to 12.19%, thus meaning Stan is hoovering up all available shares suggesting it will be a question of when rather than if.

R7, that notification is a standard thing. Its just a reply to identify himself which the other board members had requested prior to him buying ITV's stake as he bought Fiszman's share quietly.

No, from what I hear it may be Jeff Plush who comes onboard. He is a massive arsenal fan & has been for years but because his american no doubt people will reject that idea, despite the fact it was known about well before arsenal even announced the colorado rapids deal.

Yeah he is, so far 40 have been bought today. They are standing at nearly £7000 each now!! Something's happening. Maybe Dein is selling his share.

In that case he has more than the 12.19% I have reported as that was announced yesterday. For some reason AG I think you may have an insider scoop on this situation ;)
