Hearts Administrators Receive Three Bids For Club
Mon 15th Jul 2013 | Football Club Administration
Administrators acting on behalf of Hearts have confirmed they have received three bids for the Scottish Premier League club.
Bryan Jackson, joint administrator of Heart of Midlothian FC plc and a partner in the Business Restructuring team at BDO LLP, said, “We can confirm that we have received three bids for Heart of Midlothian FC.
“Further discussions will now take place with the bidders and also with the legal representatives of the administrators of Ukio Bankas. We would then hope to be in a position to name a preferred bidder.
“At this stage we cannot say how long that process will take.
“The CVA will need the support of the other major creditor and shareholders, and there may be a delay in securing that support while administrators are appointed to those entities. Therefore the sale process may take some time before a deal can be concluded and the club exits administration.
“Under the right guidance, the club has the potential to be successful both on and off the pitch, and it is encouraging to see that a number of prospective owners have clearly recognised this.
“In the meantime, we will continue to run the club and support the manager in his preparations for the forthcoming season.
“We all want the club to exit administration as quickly as possible but it’s important not to get carried away: we’re still much closer to the start of the process of concluding a sale rather than the end. We ask fans, players and staff for their continued support and patience.”
