Former Chelsea FC and Manchester United chief executive Peter Kenyon is reportedly leading a group holding discussions to purchase Premier League club Everton FC.

Current owner Farhad Moshiri is reportedly open to selling equity stakes in the club and/or external investments in the club’s new $605 million stadium at Bramley-Moore Dock. 

Reported estimates for a price tag have ranged from $609.1 million to $1.2 billion.

  • In March, for the third consecutive year, the team reported a loss of more than $121 million.
  • Earlier this month reports surfaced that the team was in discussions to secure new financing after voiding commercial ties with Russian companies. 

Moshiri, who acquired Everton for $242 million in 2016, reportedly intended to talk to Kenyon’s group about stadium funding, but those discussions developed into takeover talks. The negotiations are in early stages, but The Athletic reports Moshiri would likely retain a 10% stake if a deal went through.

Kenyon’s consortium includes U.S. businessman Maciek Kaminski, founder and president of Kaminski Asset Management and the chief executive of Talon Real Estate, and John Thornton, executive chairman of Barrick Gold Corporation and non-executive chairman of PineBridge Investments.

There are reportedly other parties interested in the team.

At A Crossbar

In a letter to fans last week, Moshiri apologized for the team’s poor performance in the Premier League and expressed his commitment “to securing the future success of the club by delivering a fully-funded stadium that will underpin our status as a leading club.”
