Arsenal Shares traded on Plus Markets

As Red & White Holdings get closer to 30% of Arsenal shares, here’s a summary of shares traded on Plus Markets for the last 18 months, including the current month to date. This shouldn’t be taken as an indication of the total number of shares traded, as many purchases are done off-market, including the huge blocks sold by other Directors to Stan Kroenke last year. But it does show that shares are getting harder to come by for R&W, with the number traded on market noticeably down over recent months. The number of small shareholders is down by about 15% (approx 750 to 640) in the last year, and I think it’s fair to say that most of those who want to sell have now sold. This doesn’t mean I don’t think R&W will get to 30%, but it’s a hard road for them.

  1. what does it matter if R&W get to 30%, it means nothing, gives them no power, they don’t have to make a buy out bid, they don’t get access to the accounts, they don’t get a seat on the board, the 30% thing is a red herring

  2. Ive been watching this develop with interest over the last few years, hoping that we would end up getting loads of russian roubles to help bolster our squad, not to be apparently.

    Ironically it was probably the mass media coverage of the ownership of shares (specfically anytime Usmanov would buy some) out would come the news reports “Usmanov closer to 30%” “Takeover bid imminent” etc etc This was then multiplied by Arsenal fans talking incessantly about it online. In retrospect is it any wonder the premier league at Arsenals behest changed the rules…………… Im not saying we (Arsenal fans) flagged it to our board (they would have done this anyway) but it didnt help
