AS Roma in talks over €800 million investment

Amid speculation that American consortium Friedkin Group have begun due diligence on AS Roma’s accounts, the Italian club have admitted they have started negotiations with a potential investor.

Trading on Roma’s shares was suspended earlier this week as the news broke, prompting the club to issue a statement which read: 

“Upon request from CONSOB, with reference to the rumors appeared today in the press concerning a potential acquisition of A.S. Roma S.p.A. shares by some potential investors, AS ROMA SPV LLC, the company which indirectly holds A.S. Roma S.p.A., through its controlled company NEEP ROMA HOLDING S.p.A., hereby informs that preliminary talks are ongoing with some potential investors in order to allow this latter to assess the opportunity of a potential investment in AS ROMA SPV LLC.

“In the case of reaching of agreements concerning the transfer of shares held in A.S. Roma S.p.A., AS ROMA SPV LLC will provide the Market with adequate information within the terms provided by the law.”
