Pompey's new investors revealed?

Pompey's new investors revealed?

Let us make this clear off the bat, we are not saying this is 100% completely accurate, this is info that various sources at Vital Pompey have been able to collate as a group - we are not saying it is without a doubt the case...

(Part of this if from a forum thread I added this this morning.)

How true it is I could not say, but I am told that the papers are going to be running with an article that says Richard Li, Zhang Zhixiang, Lee Shau Kee and Holger Heims are going to be the consortium, or part of consortiums behind Pompey.

Well some of the names - there are more Germans, more on that later... As Chix keeps telling us, the Germans are coming!

These names might not mean much to people but Heims is the German guy previously linked with Chelski, he is a serious player!

Chinese lot Richard Li, Zhang Zhixiang and Lee Shau Kee are all seriously, and I mean seriously wealthy men!

Richard Li, whist his estimated fortune is not disclosed, has been involved in multi-million dollar (both Hong Kong and US) deals over the years with his father 'said' to be one of, if not the richest man in China...

Zhang Zhixiang is 'said' to have an estimated wealth of $1.4 billion (US).

Lee Shau Kee, the daddy of the lot from the sounds of it, and estimated wealth of $19 billion (US), which is said to put him very high up the food chain, in the top 30, of the world richest people!

And of course SAF has the option of joining in, although 'if' true I would imagine that he 'probably' had a part to play in bringing some players on board - almost certainly Heims?

So, if all is as it seems, the Chinese lot look like being those that Peter Storrie has got onboard and the Germans thanks to SAF?

I would suggest not getting carried away, or taking this as gospel - it is just 'word on the street' but 'if' this proves true then I do not know what to say... Again we are not saying this is 100% accurate!

Other 'word on the street' has seen this info surface, from more than one person...

11 investors - 50 Billion combined:

60% - Storrie Consortium Richard Li, Lee Shau Kee and Zhang Zhixiang.
40% - German Consortium (Headed by Holger Heims) Martin Viessmann, Stefan Quandt, Axel Oberwell and Wolfgang Herz.

With the directors 'said' to be Peter Storrie, Holger Heims, David Dein and Sulaiman Al-Fahim.

Of course, again even if true, this does not mean large amounts of money will be available - and would we even want that?

Yet again 'assuming' all comes of as expected, or at least thought, just because they are involved - if they are - it does not mean they are all going to throw in millions, again would we want over the top money paid?

Put it this way just because Duncan Bannatyne goes into Tesco's it doesn't mean he is gonna spend £100,000!

Lysimachus - If this turns out to be unture then I think we have all been had ... Rug and I got info from different sources last night/this morning and then copmpared notes then deliberated for a long time before going with it as we (he more than me) didn't want to get peoples hopes up... then something happened so we just did it ! - The something concerns another news source !! But Just because they are loaded DOESN'T mean they are necessarily gonna through millions at us .. I see the plan as a way to act now and secure oour status (as a club and as a Premiership team) and then move on from there .. Our 'new' owners (collectively) might be wealthy beyond our wildest dreams but it doesn't mean they are gonna spend it all on us !

No I wouldn't think so Hussler .. Just owned by a bunch of wealthy men.. not the same thing at all .. but we will have stability and let's hope a little bit of money to spend.. Hopefully (if it goes through quickly) before the transfer window slams shut !

Hussler .. Peter Storrie has already passed the F&PP test ... so the deal should be able to go through if the others put in 9% each..
