THE Matthew Le Tissier backed Pinnacle consortium have entered an exclusivity period with the aim of completing a buy-out of Saints within three weeks.

The group have stumped up the £500,000 non-refundable deposit that will allow the staff and players at the club to be paid their wages for May.

They now have the opportunity to complete full due-diligence before deciding whether to proceed with their proposed offer for the club, which has been given the seal of approval by the major creditors.

The time frame to complete the deal is three weeks but during that period Pinnacle, who have been negotiating the talks on behalf of a wealthy investor, cannot be gazumped.

They have beaten three other groups to the exclusivity period - a duo of Irish businessman, a consortium led by businessmen Stuart Green and Marc Jackson and another group believed to be from Zurich.

In a statement, administrators Mark Fry and David Hudson of Begbies Traynor, said: "We are pleased to announce that they have entered into an exclusivity agreement with the Pinnacle Consortium for the sale of all of the assets of the Company, including Southampton Football Club.

"In order to enter into the exclusivity agreement, the Consortium has paid a non-refundable, undisclosed fee, and as a result the Club is now in a position to pay its staff wages in full for the month of May.

"The exclusivity agreement will last for 21 days, during which time we will be working hard with the Consortium on the technical aspects required to complete the sale, and we will make a further announcement when it is appropriate to do so."

Mark Fry added: "I am extremely pleased to be able to announce this significant development in the sale process of Southampton Leisure Holdings Plc."

I'm pleased, but cautious... let's hope the offer is a good one & they have a decent idea of where to take the club going forwards.

Don't get too carried away, this is a period of exclusivity not a deal. There's now 21 days for the deal not to materialise. Its only now that Pinnacle get to see the true state that Lowe and Co left behind. Once they see this lets hope that it doesn't frighten them off.

I'm glad the staff will now be paid, it is them who have kept the lights on these past weeks. Although Mark Fry is operationally in charge at the moment I presume the 'no pay' arrangement wouldn't apply to him? Being an administrator is a bit like being a politician - make your own rules and skim off of the rest of us.

Look out for another Fry deadline!

Have you been following this story at all?

The books were opened up at the beginning of the week, reason being the buyers were concerned about putting a 500K deposit with out have full acess to the books... That was Monday/Tuesdays news!!!

the fact that they have paid the deposit, means they are convinced by the books and they are pretty much good to go.... We do not know how much of a deposit has been put down though... it does not say in the statement, the Echo mention 500K but that is a guess.

You do not put down a non refunable deposit with out knowing what you are buying.

I know we should all be jumping up and down with joy - but in sales the oreder isn't an order until the contract is signed! I keep thinking about Clement Atlee (was it him?)and "Peace in our time"
It's great to see a consortium being fronted by MLT being given exclusivity - I did have my concerns about the Jackson bid...just a gut feeling.
I think someone is having a laugh on the SW - many-blue!
I settle for having a club in 2/3-weeks - but then a decent Manager with time & money to rebuild for Div.1. Even our over-payed lot aren't capable of doing what Leicester achieved without a proven goalscorer and a midfield enforcer.
The sun is shining, tea is nearly on the table, the Saints are nearly safe *(sorry saved)...life is looking at lot better tonight in Yorkshire!

At last good news. Just so relieved to move forward at last. Still some way to go but clearly Fry has wanted to deal with Pinnacle group and having major creditors approval is another good sign. Plus payment of deposit means having to sell players on the cheap avoided, will have to sell but at least can try and get decent fees. Having ben a saints fan for 40 years know never take anything for granted but at last a decent weekend, and the sun is shining!! The sooner it gets concluded the sooner they can sort out season tickets as a large chunk of money to bring in. Plus it means can sort out who wil be manager, dont think it will be Wotte and then get players contracts sorted. Have lost an awful lot of time over last 5 weeks to catch up on. OWTS

I`ve heard a whisper that, if true, could have some people eating their words about Mr Fry. The whisper was that all those making serious enquiries were only interested in the Stadium,training ground and Jacksons Farm and didn`t want the football club which they saw as a loss making business. It has taken Mr Fry this long to persuade someone to potentially take the whole shooting match. Whether the perceived negative value of the football club affects the price paid we may (or not) discover in due course. I wouldn`t be too confident about getting a top rate manager or some half decent players.

NEW DAWN

After slowly sliding down the inside of a very large hypothetical barrel for the last 6 years, often thinking we had finally stopped falling, only to find we had only temporarily snagged ourselves on a passing splinter, then sliding some more, before so nearly falling through the rotten bottom, I really feel that the ladder has descended to allow us to start the long climb out.

EVERYONE grab hold!!!

Despite what some have said, many of the fans HAVE done their bit through all this recent uncertainty but we must fill that ground next season. Next season is all about US, not the perceived attractiveness of the opposition.

Also, I feel that Lawrie should resurrect the All Stars match as I feel that (properly planned and marketed this time!) it could be a great way to celebrate. Play that game in the morning, followed by a friendly against Barcelona in the afternoon? - show MU where they went wrong:-)

Don't talk nonsense about asset stripping, the ground would cost more to tear down than the land is worth, remember where it is? It's only use is as a football stadium - so needs a team!

I do hope this is the right lot, I rather fancied the Irish, we know their worth. The term "wealthy investor" means jack, to many fans Wilde and Crouch would be wealthy but it's not the sort of "wealth" that's any good to a professional football club.

I don't want to be pessimistic but also don't want to get my hopes up only to be dashed again. Why can't we be told who the investor is? Why does it need to be a secret? The name will out at some stage whether the bid succeeds or fails so come on out into the sun Mr investor and get the fans behind you!

With respect I don`t think you have got my point. It may be MLT has been saying to Pinnacle "the club is worth having" but we don`t that and we don`t know if he has been involved in the negotiations. We don`t know how much notice (if any)Pinnacle have taken of what he has to say. Neither do we know much about his involvement with them. A lot of people, led on by the Echo, seem to imagine that MLT is riding in on the white charger with the Pinnacle people ready to back him up with loads of money, let`s wait and see. MLT in a story sells a lot of papers.

They could have done so much to raise funds both by pay cuts and personal appearances etc and by supporting the charity events.

These things always take time and always go to the wire. The reason why is because there has been significant difference. In what people where willing to pay and what Aviva in particular would except.

Maybe i'm over-simplifying, but if all these groups want to own the club, why don't they merge?

It would mean a vastly reduced amount of investment on each individuals behalf and would increase the funds available if they were needed

It would be nice, but does it really matter if there's not some mega wealthy backer behind the deal? I just want our club saved and then, in a sense, it's up to the fans. If Pinnacle clears our debts then all the fans have to do is sell out St Marys every other week and we should have more than enough coming in to get out of League 1.

Frankly, I'd rather take that than be in some Pompey situation where they're owned by some billionaire who doesn't really care about the club. It's all a bit tacky and nouveu riche, don't you think? After all, City have got billions in the bank and they best they could buy at Christmas was Shay Given.

And the idea that Lowe is somehow involved in this bid is just stupid - Matt would have walked away by now as it's clear what he thinks of him.
