Inter sale: BC Partners begin financial analysis

The private equity fund BC Partners have reportedly started an analysis of the financial situation of Inter with an extraordinary board of directors’ meeting that will take place tomorrow.

The club’s CEO Beppe Marotta has confirmed Suning are considering selling a stake in the club.

Inter sources have told Sky Sport Italy, the possibility of selling a stake in the club must be considered as “positive opportunity” and insist “the future of the club has never been as rosy as it is right now.”

The fact that their attention has fallen on Inter, with analysis of the accounts already underway, is one more reason that give hope to the Nerazzurri fans, the report claims.

BC Partners are a fund that evaluates entrepreneurial groups and considers them for investment.

According to Il Sole 24 Ore, at the end of the due diligence there will be an assessment of the club’s worth, which will be less than €1 billion. Suning could eventually decide to sell a majority stake in the club, according to the financial paper and Tuttosport.

As per Il Corriere dello Sport, an extraordinary board of directors’ meeting will take place on Thursday.

The chairman Steven Zhang will participate remotely from China and will discuss Suning’s intentions for the future of the club.
