Gloucester Rugby club for sale

Wed, 08 Apr 2015 | BUSINESS SALE

Gloucester Rugby are reportedly up for sale and are said to be welcoming takeover approaches.

The club is, however, remaining cautious and only plans to sell if a deal worth more than £25 million can be secured with the right investor.

Reports from the Citizen & Gloucestershire Echo indicate that the club has hired Cavendish Corporate Finance to oversee any takeover movement. They are expecting to receive a decent amount of interest given its profitable status and low debt.

Chief executive Stephen Vaughan spoke to the publication: “We have asked Cavendish to conduct a strategic review of the club. The owners have a number of other business interests and now might be the right time to pass the baton on.”

He added: “The best case scenario is we find an investor, or group of investors, who want to put money into the club to help me accelerate our objective of being a top four club domestically and in Europe.”

The club is one of only three profitable clubs in the Premiership. Last year they reported revenues of £12 million and a pre-tax yield of £512,000. The club also owns its own ground and, according to Vaughan, is able to generate income from activities other than the game, such as conferencing and concerts.
