As he announced to club employees on May 18 and as we revealed in The TeamSaïd Chabane, president and owner of more than 99% of the shares of Angers SCO, entered into exclusive negotiations with an American investment fund, GFC, which was interested in the spring in the acquisition of NAC Breda (Dutch D2) .
A sale price between 65 and 75 M€
This fund is represented by Nick Sakiewicz and Cobus Kotze. Sakiewicz is a former goalkeeper who played in MLS and who notably worked in Tampa Bay, the New York Metrostars and the Philadelphia Union between 1996 and 2007. The great architect of this file is John Tavares, member of AKTS, the Swiss consulting firm which had been mandated by Chabane to sell the SCO, whose sale price is between 65 and 75 million euros.
While several stakeholders were beginning to worry about the inertia observed since Chabane’s announcement, an audit team arrived in Angers on Tuesday, and it will stay there for about a week. As is the case in this kind of procedure, the SCO, which has already successfully presented its provisional budget for next season, will appear before the DNCG with the new owners, a priori between June 20 and July 10.
