Club's Parent Company Reports Significant Loss

Birmingham International Holding Company has issued a significant loss warning for the financial year and has blamed this on a lack of money coming in from player sales.

The player sales during this period are Jack Butland to Stoke for around 3.5 million pounds and Curtis Davis to Hull for around 2 million pound.

I'm unsure but I think the Redmond deal comes under this financial year not the last one.

For the year ending in 2012 Blues posted profits of 16 million pound with players like Jerome, Ferguson and Scott Dann to name a few, all being sold.

Has that money been taken out of the club? or has it slowly been chipped away by the costs of the club? its not so long back, so it would be hard to believe the club had spent that already!

The company said it expected the financial situation of the club to continue to worsen in its current state.

The club also still have liabilities of 14 million which could be the money the club owe to BIH (they loaned the club player fees), this represents a supposed fall in liabilities.

Its looking very much like liquidation is on the way, buckle your seatbelts
hard will
I doubt any money has been fritted away, unless they can fool the auditors and the club and BIHL have used different auditors so you would think one of them would find something. Yes, one of them did say they didn't have all the information they wanted and if they suspected foul play they should have indicated that and refused to sign the accouints off. Blues made 16 million ending 2012 but they lost 10 million ending 2011, so really they only made 6 million over those two years. We owed BIHL and Yeung via his banks 20 million and this is now down to 14 million, so probaly that is where the 6 million profit has gone, to pay the clubs debt. The wage bill was over 25 million on a turnover of 39 million the first year in the championship, so players had to be sold otherwise that turnover would have been about 20 million and wages would have been around 35 million so we would have made another big loss to add to the previous year loss of 10 million plus the loans / debts we owed. It would have meant we would be in debt to around 45 million.
