In full: Ticketus statement on Rangers’ administration

Following a meeting yesterday with Rangers Football Club’s (the “Club” or “Rangers”) administrators Duff & Phelps, Ticketus would like to state its desire for a rapid and successful conclusion to the Club’s administration process and confirm its willingness to enter into discussions with any serious potential bidders for the Club.

We met with the administrators yesterday to make it clear that we intend to be part of a solution for the Club, and to ensure a fast and fair resolution is achieved for all parties. We outlined that this includes working with potential purchasers to help provide various financing solutions to the Club that would be attractive to new owners.

Ticketus believes that the best outcome for Rangers, its fans, Ticketus and our investors is for the administration process to be concluded as soon as possible, with a purchaser found who is able to bring stability to the Club.

Ticketus has an obligation to its investors to pursue all avenues to ensure that the ticket purchase agreement it entered into with the Club is honoured, and we are committed to going to the lengths necessary to ensure that the future of the Club is preserved and its agreement with Ticketus fulfilled. We believe that our investors’ interests are aligned to those looking to safeguard the Club’s future.

We have already been in contact with a number of other key stakeholders, including potential bidders and fans’ representatives, and believe working collaboratively with all parties to create a solution for the Club that puts it on a secure financial footing must be everyone’s priority.

Ticketus looks forward to continuing to work with the administrators and serious potential bidders to secure a positive outcome for the Club.
