Our share capital increase - what a success!
“We're extremely happy about the success of the share capital increase". These are the words Juventus Chairman Giovanni Cobolli Gigli used to comment the results of the share capital increase, originally decided on the 20th of April at an extraordinary shareholders' meeting.
Juventus announced the sale figures that have emerged from the first phase of the offer, which began on the 28th of May and ended on the 15th of June. Very positive figures indeed: as much as 96,37% of the shares (that's 77.697.852 shares) have been purchased, amounting to over 101 million euros.
“These results confirm the validity of the plan developed by our able managers. This development plan will define the growth of this club - added Cobolli Gigli -. It was obvious that the favourable conditions of such a capital increase would attract rational investors. But I like to think that what made most people buy shares was also their feeling of belonging to the life and history of this great club. So, yes, the market responded favourably, but more than that, lots of supporters-$#@!-shareholders renewed their trust in us and really showed us their level of participation and commitment".
At the time of writing, 2.923.480 shares are still available, and will be until the 28th of June.
