Retail Bond

A retail bond is a debt instrument which has a fixed initial term of typically 3-7 years. It pays a fixed rate of interest, normally on an annual basis.

  • Terms designed to deliver the right balance of attractiveness and risk
  • Returns can be made up of cash and/or credit interest
  • Bonds can be held within a tax-free IFISA or SIPP
  • Security and financial covenants are case-specific

Equity Offering

Through an equity offering, a club sells a percentage of its share capital to outside investors.

  • Offering can be through “nominee” company to minimise admin
  • Voting rights, board representation and governance are case-specific
  • Option to create investor return through performance-based dividends
  • Valuation needs to be fair and validated

Convertible Bond

A convertible bond is like a retail bond but can be “converted” into another form. Typically conversion is into club shares, but it can also be into other non-cash items.

  • Bonds can be made convertible into equity (shares), or credit to be redeemed on season tickets, club merchandise etc.
  • Coupon, conversion premium and terms are case-specific
  • Conversion can be at the discretion of the club and/or the investor
  • Can provide clubs with more financial flexibility (e.g. stadium financing)
