They didn't have a clue anyway, they have rightly got stick for contradicting themselves multiple times and now thankfully they have shut up.

I'm talking about Lee Ryder, Mark Douglas and Luke Edwards.

Ashley usually instructs Dentons.

Pinsents wouldn't be able to act for both as it would be a huge conflict of interest.

Although, that aside, that is quite interesting. Khaled Zayed Saquer Zayed Alnahyan only has one directorship in this country.....

The only shareholder is Bin Zayed Investments LLC.

Nothing in the articles to suggest the purpose of the company.

Could someone on Twitter put him right about the conflict? Its annoying me.

The chronicle/Douglas 

Holding company apparently set up - what does it mean?
So a new company has been set up at Companies House with two registered directors: the Sheikh linked with a Newcastle takeover and Mihat Kidwai, Bin Zayed Group MD - whose name was attached to the statements sent out last week.

It is called Monochrome Acquisitions Ltd - which is a clear play on black and white, the colours of Newcastle United. It is set up with the registered address of Pinsent Masons, the London law firm that has previously worked with Newcastle and they have drawn up the documents on behalf of the Sheikh and Kidwai it appears (we are checking the veracity of this).

If it is genuine - and again, we’ve got calls on - it would mean a holding company has been set up to acquire the shares of Newcastle United, which is significant in itself but doesn’t mean the deal is necessarily imminent. It means that things are being set up to do the deal - which adds meat to the bones of the statements we got last week.

FWIW, when I checked yesterday various sources said no major developments. Bin Zayed said last week they were “closing in” on Newcastle....

I'd say this is encouraging and actually appears to be concrete - as the guy says on the thread you can't falsify these things. Also the purpose of the company is stated as being a holding company - i.e. something to hoover up shares, like St James Holdings Limited did for Ashley.

Good way of saving Stamp Duty too - share purchases only attract 0.5% Stamp duty where as asset purchases will be much higher especially if they involve land.

Pinscent Masons are pukka firm - although note sure why they didn't drive down the A21 to our offices......

No doubt they'll announce they've bought Notts County tomorrow. Sad

Is he saying that someone has gone to the trouble of committing fraud and therefore facing prosecution to set this up for a wind up? Pfft, don't think so.

Usually when a reporter states there's been no developments, 2 days later something big gets announced as they are very often clueless.
