Dubai International Capital look set to buy into Liverpool football club at last after confirming they would be willing to enter into a power-sharing agreement with current co-owner Tom Hicks.
Under a proposed deal that will be discussed by all parties in Dubai next week, Hicks, who currently owns 50% of all shares in Liverpool, would become the club's majority shareholder by buying a further 1% from current co-owner George Gillett, while DIC would buy Gillett's remaining 49%. DIC had been hoping to achieve overall control, but Amanda Staveley, a senior partner at DIC's advisers, the private equity firm PCP Capital Partners, has now said they are willing to accept the current proposal.
"Subject to renegotiation of a partnership agreement and subject to the usual stringent minority shareholder protection rights, we would be prepared to accept a 49% shareholding," said Staveley. "We have decided that this arrangement provides the best possible solution to the situation and would be in the best interests of the club and their loyal fans."
