Or is it the pension fund getting some of their money back?

Bottom line is will the £105 mil enable mark ashton to buy more players and improve the facilities?

And how does FFP affect it all?

Oh have they?

I was thinking that they were going to reduce (at the very least) the exposure of the pension fund

Sounds to me that they still hold their original investment and have attracted new money, as a result they now own just a controlling interest.

So have Gamechanger sold a 40% stake in the club
to get a return on their investment?

I don’t think they’ve said, have they? They’ve said there’s new capital coming into the club, but it’s not clear how much.

I guess the alternative is that they have sold a share in the club at a much higher price than what they paid for the (virtually) full ownership but left that money in the club thereby increasing the value of the club significantly but not actually taking any money out of the club.

One thing is for sure, they know what they are doing and are going to get a good profit out of their investment if everything runs to plan.

The new investment gives us an even more stable foundation to continue growth as we push for the Premier League. The contacts all these people have will also help us in the coming years, should we need further investment.
As you say, fantastic news all round for Ipswich and the supporters.

This investment gives us an opportunity to grow, as a club, within the current financial rules.

What is equally important is the part fans have to play, we have to continue to fill the ground every match and continue to put money into the club with the purchase of merchandise etc.

It really is a team effort and we all have a part to play.

I know nothing, but this is what I assume, and I'm more than happy to be put right on any of it:

[1.] The new investors represent 25% of the financial board.
[2.] They probably expect and have agreement to take a profit at some risk to themselves within 5-7 years.
[3.] That profit could come from:
a. player sales
b. TV money
c. commercial activity linked to an expanded stadium and area
d. commercial activity ITFC brand
e. selling shares (assuming the value will rise with club success)
[4.] Because of [1.] they can't enforce any of [3.a-d] unless there's any binding contract to enforce it against the best interests of the club? The latter, the majority shareholders would never allow to happen as a longer term investor (even ignoring their evident good character).
[5.] The £105m is available in phases entirely for investment in the club for:
a. Infrastructure investment - training ground first, then presumably a new Cobbold Stand (partial funding?)
b. Player investment this summer. (Balance with a. dependent upon which division we are in next season.)
c. Very clearly stated that no current shareholders are taking any investment out of the club at this time; it's all new investment just when we need it.

How close is that, I wonder?

Is 5c a bit ambiguous. The pension fund could receive a direct payment without taking money out?

I said in another post I don’t really have any negatives, but in some respects I didn’t hear anything new yesterday. Some of the funding money appears to be supporting the training ground, but I thought that was already secured etc.

It feels to me like a spreading of risk and the pension fund not being the only source of capital to fund projects and cover loses over the next five years. I don’t see a downside to that other than another set of faces in a rather complicated ownership model.

It's new money.
Perhaps easier to say what it's not first -
It's not "we own the club. It's worth 250 million, so you can buy 40% of it off us for 100 million".

More like "we own the club. You INVEST 100 million in it and get new shares we issue to the value of 40% of the club. Our holding is still the same, but now only represents 60% of the club's value".

More confusing to me is the FFP rules. It seems most of the money is going on infrastructure. As far as I understand it, such investment does not count as expenditure against those rules.

Also, the money will be drip fed in, not all at once, hence "up to" 105 million.

Technically I don’t think they’ve sold anything.

When Gamechanger took over they created loads of new shares, but didn’t physically issue them to any shareholders. My understanding is that they have just issued those shares at an agreed price, but the knock on effect is that the new issue dilutes their shareholding. They haven’t sold any of their shares as I understand it
