Does the strange case of Josh Wander’s private jet, stuck in a US airport for months, act as a metaphor for the lack of progress 777 are making to buy Everton? And why has the company yet to agree terms for the future funding of the British Basketball League, which faces administration?
Genoa CFC owners 777 Partners are attempting to re-structure their club's debt to the Italian tax authorities, which currently stands at over 106 million euro. The Italian club faces bankruptcy if the Court of Genoa does not agree to the operation, while other creditors of the club are still owed an extra 160 million.
777 remain confident their takeover of crisis club Everton will proceed, and Josimar can reveal the source of funding for the purchase. But the man behind that money is accused of fraud in an ongoing US lawsuit.
777 Group lost almost 600 million dollars from June 2021 to June 2022. These numbers have not been submitted to regulators probing the proposed takeover of Everton and cast doubt on Josh Wander’s claim about his company’s financial strength.
777 Partners, which is currently trying to add Everton to its multi-cub portfolio, owned and operated companies which were accused in court of “predatory conduct” for targeting brain damaged former American football players making concussion claims against the NFL.
