Additional Information....

This is the final phase of the Blackpool FC acquisition deal. There is some details adjustments and co-ordination made. I am a slightly concerned about this deal, because of the lack of experience in acquisition of a football club. I have never done such a big deal in the UK. This is the first experience of such kind and I would like everything to be arranged perfectly. This is a kind of test, I challenge myself. This is like the Torino Olympic Games closing ceremony, when Latvians surprised everyone with the performance of the longest free wingless flight. All the spectators were astonished, said – Wow! – and followed the performance breathless. This asked amazing efforts while training, but the result was worth it; because people all over the world get to know that we, Latvian, are able to do something that no-one else is able to do. I to some extent feel the same; sure I will not surprise everyone in the world, but myself – definitely. I work really hard and I raise the slat higher. I feel really pleased when I achieve the new goal.

At the moment I am not entitled to disclose them, but believe me these are impressive figures.

How Long Until The Deal Is Completed?

While arranging the details of the deal we came across the lack the knowledge about the details of British legislation with my Latvian lawyers and now we actively cooperate with British lawyers and auditors in order to attain the results of the best practices in the area. I am very interested in getting this deal finalized as soon as possible, because we need enough time to get prepared for the new season.
