rfc2001 Just thinking, Boris Z has all the dolla not Anton. Boris has no interest in football or investing. We can't be that rich, Boris aint going to give his son Millions or a Billion to use on Reading. Anton is probably only a bit richer than SJM!! !!Based on 2004!!

Unless since 2004 Anton has become frigging minted!!



since 2004 Anton hs become frigging minted

Based on what?

I was going to suggest he'd scattered the bones of last night's KFC bargain bucket, but you're probably right.

Quite simple to find this info on the web......a bit more worried now.

Why? We're hardly a 'dummy company'

All that really shows us is that he has lots of mega-rich clients.

Search for investment goes on as Fortress fails

Nov 25 2005

By David Prior, Daily Post

BILL KENWRIGHT insists he is still searching for investment "24 hours a day" - after admitting for the first time that any hopes of the Fortress Sports Fund becoming involved at Everton are now dead.

The Goodison chairman was finally able to shed some light on the lengthy and frustrating saga that cast a cloud over the club for much of last season.

The Fund, led by Swiss-based financier Chris Samuelson, had been due to buy almost a third share in the club but despite repeated assurances - Samuelson even appeared at last year's AGM in an attempt to convince sceptical supporters - no deal materialised. And speaking at last night's AGM, Kenwright finally expained the reasons behind what one questioner suggested represented a "charade".

Kenwright said: "(Samuelson) was someone who I believed could have come up with the money, he had his credentials and thought he could come up with a deal that was good for the club.

"So I brought him to you (to last year's AGM). But he didn't, like many many other people, come up with the goods. I didn't lie, and I don't think Jon (Woods), Paul (Gregg) or Keith (Wyness) did."


He added: "I am spending 24 hours a day trying to raise finance for this club. I had a meeting today, three yesterday, all involving money that would dilute my shareholding - but I'm not interested in that."

Chief executive Keith Wyness also denied claims that Samuelson had at any stage been paid money by the club. "He (Samuelson) was never paid one penny," he insisted.

A lively meeting saw Wyness also attempting to clarify several other issues that attracted heated questioning from last night's attendees. Among them were: V Villarreal ticketing: Wyness blamed "an exceptional situation" for the shambolic way tickets were distributed ahead of Everton's long-awaited Champions League debut back in August, claiming the club were left with only six days to sell their allocation.

My "No" vote on the "Is this a good thing" thread is looking pretty strong right now.

My worry is that he's another Sulaiman Al-Fahim. Seemingly deep pockets, but no real worth and these "investors" turn out to not exist or disappear when the going gets tough.

one must assume that SJM knew about Kenwright's issues and has/ is doing his due dilligence properly

no offence to Kenwright of course but I would also assume SJM to be a more astute business person

Kenwright has spent the past four years scouring Europe and the USA for potential investors.

He assigned renowned football agent Jerome Anderson to seek out wealthy benefactors interested in investing in Premiership football clubs.

He unearthed Geneva financier Chris Samuelson, representative of Swiss-based Russian millionaire Boris Zingarevich, and together they formed the Fortress Sports Fund.

The fund, which will be established in Brunei, was set up with the intention of investing in a number of sporting initiatives. But Everton will be their first, and undoubtedly most significant, client.

Samuelson and Anton Zingarevich will join the Blues' board.

The investment takes the form of a new share issue, with Fortress Sports Fund then owning 40% of the club. Kenwright, however, will remain as chairman and True Blue Holdings will remain the majority shareholder.

True Blue Holdings owns 71. 3% of Everton, with Kenwright and ally Jon Woods owning 64. 3% of True Blue, which means they can outvote Paul Gregg, whose family owns31. 5%. Adding spice to the story is that the Zingarevich family are keen business rivals of Roman Abramovich.
