City Football Group
Just to clarify - Sheikh Mansour hasn’t sold any shares in CFG. Silver Group subscribed for 10% of the shares in CFG.
What this basically means is that the Sheikh owns less shares, but the value of his shares is proportionately higher.
In 2015, China Media Group invested £265 million for a 13% stake in CFG
Silver Lake have just invested £380 million for a 10% stake
In 2015, CFG was valued at £3 billion.
The Silver Lake deal values CFG at £4.8 billion.
Impressive growth.
By the way, Sheikh Mansour wrote this open letter to City fans, which is well worth a read. It describes his commitment to the club, and his investment strategy.
