Gers agree £10m Sports Direct loan

The cash-strapped Rangers board has agreed a £10million emergency loan deal with Mike Ashley’s Sports Direct firm, it has announced to the Stock Exchange.

Without the injection of fresh funding, the Ibrox outfit would not have been able to cover pay checks due to be delivered on Thursday.

The loan will be secured against Murray Park, Edmiston House, Albion Car Park, and the Club’s registered trademarks – but not Ibrox.

The move spells the end of attempts by the Three Bears – wealthy fans Douglas Park, George Letham and George Taylor – to have their own loan offer accepted.

It was their promise to match Ashley’s deal whilst demanding Ibrox remained unsecured that forced the Newcastle United owner to drop the stadium from the terms of his agreement.

In return for the money – which will be paid to Rangers in two £5million tranches – Ashley will be able to nominate two more directors to the Light Blues board. His associates Derek Llambias and Barry Leach are already serving as chief executive and financial director.

As well as that, Rangers will transfer 26 per cent of its holding in Rangers Retail Ltd (RRL).

RRL was a joint venture set up by the club and Sports Direct, with Rangers in control of 51 per cent and Ashley’s company controlling the rest. Fans, however, were already concerned that it was overly beneficial to Ashley.

Now as part of the new loan deal, the club has also agreed that from the 2017/8 season, for the duration of the loan, any future shirt sponsorship proceeds “will be for the benefit of RRL”.

In a lengthy 7am statement to the Stock Exchange, the board said: “The Board of Rangers announces that Rangers Football Club Limited has entered in to agreements with SportsDirect.com Retail Limited and associated companies, to provide a long term on-going credit facility of up to £10m.

“The Company’s financial condition has been perilous for a number of months exacerbated by lower than expected match attendances. The Directors have implemented a cost cutting program with which they have made significant progress.

“There is however an immediate need for a substantial injection of capital, and the Directors have considered a number of options.

“The terms negotiated with SD (which are reversible in respect of the Facility) represent the optimum combination of quantum and duration of funding, allowing the Company time to arrange permanent capital which can be used for strengthening the playing squad.

“The Facility is structured in two separate interest free tranches. £5 million will be available immediately for working capital purposes and for the repayment of the credit facilities with MASH Holdings Limited which was entered into on 27 October 2014.

“All rights and security associated with the MASH facility will be cancelled.

“The Club will transfer 26 per cent of the share capital in Rangers Retail Limited to SD for the duration of the Facility, which will be transferred back, at no cost, upon repayment of all outstanding sums owed by Rangers and its subsidiaries to SD. There is no specified repayment period for the first tranche of the Facility.

“The Facility is to be secured by (1) a floating charge over the Club’s assets and (2) fixed charges over Murray Park, Edmiston House, Albion Car Park, and the Club’s registered trademarks.

“None of the security that is being given to SD covers Ibrox Stadium, which is specifically excluded and remains in the full ownership of the Club, free from any security.

“SD will also have the right to nominate two directors to the board of Rangers for the duration of the Facility, any such nomination will be subject to regulatory consent pursuant to the AIM Rules and other regulatory bodies.

“If the entire sum drawn down is repaid, the Facility will be deemed to be terminated, all security will be released, the 26 per cent of RRL will revert to the Company and all rights of SD to nominate Directors to the Board of the Company will cease.

“The second tranche of £5million, which repayable five years after drawn down, will be used, if required, for working capital purposes and is subject to due diligence by SD prior to drawn down.

“The Company has also agreed that from the 2017/8 season, for the duration of the Facility, any future shirt sponsorship proceeds will be for the benefit of RRL.

“RRL will declare a dividend of a total of £1,610,000 prior to the Transfer.

“The Club will use the proceeds of its share of this dividend, inter alia, to repay sums owing to SD in respect of the cessation of onerous leases on unprofitable stores entered into by a previous Rangers management team.

“The Directors would like to thank all the Rangers Stakeholders who showed an interest in helping the Company.”

Chairman David Somers said: “The Board has sought for some time to establish a long term funding solution for the Company in order to create a platform of stability to build for the future.

“This Facility begins this process and we very much hope that it will be augmented with further permanent capital in due course.

“In addition, the executive team have made strides in addressing the cost base of the Company in order to improve our financial condition and working capital profile.

“We very much hope that we can now move away from having to seek short term funding solutions and can focus our efforts towards investing in the first team playing squad, a return to profitability and to re-establishing Rangers in the top league in Scottish Football and in due course, to European competition.

“The Board now calls upon all shareholders to rally together to achieve this goal.”

Ashley has now strengthened his grasp on the money streams entering the club, but the balance of power could yet swing away from him in the coming weeks if Dave King succeeds in routing the board at the general meeting he has called.

Rangers in crisis: Latest emergency loan taken to avoid HMRC winding up order

Thumbnail

SANDY EASDALE’S £500,000 emergency loan to Rangers is to help the club avoid being wound up by HM Revenue and Customs, BBC Scotland has reported.

Cash-strapped Gers announced the interest free loan this morning while also confirming an approach from US banker and basketball tycoon Robert Sarver.

It is understood Rangers received a seven-day notice at the end of December for the payment of national insurance.

In a statement to the stock exchange this morning the club said Easdale’s loan this morning was designed to provide “working capital” in the coming days.

The Easdale family’s adviser Jack Irvine said: “Once again Sandy has stepped up to the plate with this half million pound loan from his own pocket. Whilst we welcomed the recent share purchases by Dave King and Douglas Park and his consortium this unfortunately did not put any funds into the club.

“Sandy was the only option for this cash injection at such short notice. The Easdale family remain totally committed to achieving a satisfactory financial future for Rangers and they hope all parties can work together in the future with that common goal.”

Rangers announced the new loan deal to the stock exchange as they confirmed that Robert Sarver, the majority owner of the Phoenix Suns NBA basketball team, had made an approach that may or may not lead to an offer to buy the club.

Sarver’s interest had emerged on Sunday but his approach to the Rangers board came before almost a third of the club’s shares were snapped up by a combination of Dave King and the so-called Three Bears – George Letham, George Taylor and Douglas Park.

Easdale’s loan will be secured on income from the recent sale of Lewis Macleod, who signed for Brentford on Friday for an undisclosed fee that was reported as £1million.

Macleod has been the team’s most impressive performer this season and his displays earned the 20-year-old midfielder a place in the most recent Scotland squad, but his exit came as Rangers bid to recoup annual losses of £8.3million.

Rangers previously announced his sale had been necessary to provide funds for working capital and the urgent nature of those needs was laid bare in their most recent statement, which revealed that football club chairman Easdale’s interest-free loan of up to £500,000 would be used for “general working capital purposes over the next few days”.

The statement added: “Alexander Easdale will make available to the company up to £500,000 on a fee and interest free basis and it will be secured against the income from the sale of player announced on 2 January 2015.”

Rangers also confirmed they had received an approach from Sarver in the wake of reports detailing how the 53-year-old American businessman planned to launch an £18million bid.

Rangers said his approach “may or may not lead to an offer being made for the company”.

Their statement added: “There can be no certainty that an offer will be made, nor as to the terms on which an offer may be made. A further announcement is expected shortly.”

The statement added that Sarver must make an offer or withdraw his bid by 5pm on February 2.

Sarver’s attempt was since made far more difficult by the recent deals which saw King and the Three Bears take their combined holding to almost 35 per cent, although they have stressed they are not working as a group.

The Three Bears have also offered £6.5million to underwrite a planned share issue.

Sarver would need to persuade 75 per cent of shareholders to back plans for a share issue to allow the board to offer him newly-created shares. A similar resolution was defeated at the club’s annual general meeting on December 22.

It is understood that Sarver has had tentative talks with the Three Bears but it appears unlikely that they and King would walk away after finally getting their hands on a significant tranche of shares in the ongoing power struggle at Ibrox.

Their recent share purchases have begun to shift the balance of power, along with the Scottish Football Association’s rejection of a plea from Mike Ashley to increase his shareholding to almost 30 per cent.

The Newcastle owner’s influence is limited to a 10 per cent stake under an agreement with the SFA and he and the club face disciplinary action from the governing body after the club installed his close associate, Derek Llambias, as director and chief executive.

Ashley, whose Sports Direct company control the club’s retail division, had strengthened his grip on Ibrox with loans totalling £3million late last year, but the fact that the latest loan came not from him but Easdale appears to show that his interest and influence is further on the wane.

Cash-strapped Rangers need another loan

Comments The financial woes are continuing at the Ibrox club

The extent of Rangers’ immediate financial problems has been highlighted after they announced they needed a loan of up to £500,000 from shareholder Sandy Easdale to provide “working capital” in the coming days.

Rangers announced a new loan deal to the stock exchange as they confirmed that Robert Sarver, the majority owner of the Phoenix Suns NBA basketball team, had made an approach that may or may not lead to an offer to buy the club.

5 Forwards Arsenal Should Consider as Loan Signings in January Transfer Window

Key Stats:

La Liga Games Played: 1 started (9 as substitute) Goals: 2

Champions League Games Played: 0 (2) Goals: 0

At the beginning of December, John Cross of Mirror Football reported that Arsene Wenger was not interested in either Alvaro Morata or Alexandre Pato.

However, that situation changed over Christmas when, according to Cross, Olivier Giroud got injured.

With the news that Nicklas Bendtner is out for a couple of weeks and that Theo Walcott is out for the rest of this season, the need to sign a striker in January has grown exponentially.

Morata is one of the most exciting prospects at Real Madrid and is loved by their support and coaching team. That basically means that a full transfer will not happen but that a loan move may, despite Carlo Ancelotti telling the Daily Mail that Morata was going nowhere in January.

Morata’s capture would paper over the cracks until the summer.

It would be too much to expect from the young starlet to make a huge impact in just six months at the Emirates, especially in a title run.

Barcelona’s Gerard Deulofeu is currently experiencing a similar style loan deal at Everton and is enjoying some success. It is worth noting though that the prodigious youth has only started two of the Toffees’ 21 league games this season and has featured as substitute 10 times. It would be fair to expect something similar from Morata.

Where this deal does make sense is if Giroud, Bendtner and Lukas Podolski can remain fit.

The transfer window remains open for the entire month of January, and Wenger may gamble on making a decision, especially as the month contains two FA Cup fixtures. These weeks are basically rest weeks for injured players and will give Le Prof some wiggle room regarding transfers.

Should Bendtner come back fully fit by the end of the month then the Morata deal looks more likely. Giroud is already back in full training and is expected to return to first-team action as soon as possible.

This loan deal could potentially be the first step in Arsenal going after a much bigger target in the summer. Wayne Rooney anyone?

Daggers’ trip to Morecambe re-arranged

Friday, December 28, 2012
2:22 PM

Club disappointed with two long journeys in space of four days, plus the loan of AFC Bournemouth midfielder Josh Wakefield extended.

Dagenham & Redbridge will now travel to face Morecambe on Tuesday, January 8 – despite raising their concerns to the Football League.

Daggers head to Accrington Stanley on the Saturday before, January 5, and it was thought the club were unhappy with two lengthy trips in the space of four days.

But the Football League pointed out regulation 28.1 with this being the first available date and it’s the preference of the home club from a cash flow point of view.

Alongside that, Daggers have extended the loan of midfielder Josh Wakefield until January 1.

The 18-year-old arrived on a youth loan from AFC Bournemouth just before the loan transfer window closed at the end of November.

Wakefield has been a named substitute for games against Fleetwood Town, Bristol Rovers and Barnet, but is yet to get any minutes under his belt.

Vince Young Hit With $1.69 Million Payday Loan Settlement

Posted: August 10, 2012

Vince Young must pay Pro Player Funding (PPF) $1.69 million after he took out and then failed to pay off a loan from the company in May 2011.

Known as a high interest “lockout loan,” the company offered cash to players when the NFL lockout left many unable to pay their bills. At the time of his loan Vince Young was a struggling QB with the Tennessee Titans.

Young went to PPF and took out a loan in the amount of $1,876,876.88. Documents for the loan stated that PPF could call in the full loan amount plus interest if a player missed even one payment. During his transition from the Philadelphia Eagles to the Buffalo Bills, the QB missed a payment, and PPF called in the loan.

The amount owed by Vince Young is nearly the entire $1.9 million he’ll earn while playing with the Buffalo Bills during the 2012-2013 season.

Young is not alone in his predicament, Baltimore Ravens lineman Bryant McKinnie has agreed to give up his entire $3.2 million salary for 2012 to PPF after he took out a $4 million loan with the company.

Pro Player Funding has been widely criticized for taking advantage of NFL players during the lockout; until this time, however no players had come forward with large interest loans from the company.

PPF has received court ordered permission to collect money from Vince Young.

In the meantime, Vince Young has been involved in another financial squabble of a different kind, claiming his former agent stole $5.5 million in endorsement deal from him.

PawnUp.com Online Pawn Shop Makes it Clear: Customer Satisfaction is Our Top Priority

MONTREAL, May 28, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — “Life is full of moments when a need for financial help arises unexpectedly. Some of those moments are not easy by any means. A few weeks ago my grandmother passed away, and, with the void of losing a loved one, came the responsibility of making all the final arrangements for her, in Texas,” said Mr. Reynolds.

“We needed to have all funeral expenses covered fast, but it was not very easy for my family financially. After doing my fair share of research online, PawnUp.com looked like the most obvious choice to help us with the money ASAP, and definitely the most easy and friendly to work with. They provided me with a cash loan without any credit checks or excessive questions, which was very much appreciated under these trying times,” he continued.

“Shortly after I filled out an application on their web site and described the item I was going to use as collateral for the loan, a customer support representative contacted me and offered me a $4,000.00 loan with only 5% interest on a one month loan. Once they had my item and could confirm its authenticity, the money was wired to me in no time, and ever since my first contact with PawnUp.com, they expressed their genuine concern for my situation and my needs. They are a true help,” Mr. Reynolds concluded.

PawnUp.com online pawn shop puts their customers first and works overtime to provide the best financial solution to their clients – fast, friendly, discreet.
