    Liverpool takeover bidder Peter Lim is a self-made billionaire if there ever was one. A son of a fishmonger, he grew up with three brothers and four sisters in one of Singapore’s oldest public housing estates, Bukit Ho Swee. With eleven people in a 2 bedroom government flat, he invariably slept in the living room or wherever he could put his mattress down. He completed his secondary education before travelling to Perth in Australia to study at the University of Western Australia. To fund his education he took a number of part time jobs including as a waiter, a taxi driver and a cook. It was while he was a cook at a fast food chain Red Rooster that he began to learn the ins an outs of how a business worked. He saw first hand how a company started, grew and scaled up.
    He graduated from university with an accounting and finance degrr but he got off to an inauspicious start in his first job as an accountant which only lasted three months. He went into tax consultancy before finally becoming a stock-broker – something he had always wanted to get into after buying his first shares at age 18. He quickly made a name of himself on the Singapore Stock Exchange and became popularly known as the “King of the Remisiers,” a Remisier being an agent of a Stock-broking company who gets paid commission for every transaction.
    After many years making investments for others, he decided to become an investor himself, and how did it pay off. In the early 90s he invested a $10million 5% stake in a Palm Oil firm called Wilmar International; the stake today is now worth $700million. Lim’s philosophy is simple: be patient.

    LIVERPOOL TAKEOVER
    NESV has no intention of losing Liverpool to Lim

    By Harry Harris, Football Correspondent

    October 11, 2010


    ESPNsoccernet can disclose New England Sports Ventures (NESV) has a watertight contract to purchase Liverpool and has no intention of relinquishing that right despite a late attempt from Singapore businessman Peter Lim to launch a rival takeover bid.

    The Liverpool board has agreed to sell the club to NESV for £300 million but their ability to do so has been challenged by co-owners Tom Hicks and George Gillett. Tuesday's High Court hearing will help to determine whether the takeover has the legal basis to reach completion.

    But Lim, who is being advised by the British firm of lawyers Macfarlanes and by the Wong Partnership of Singapore, is preparing a rival offer and hopes to outbid NESV to take control of Liverpool.

    It is understood that Lim's interest forced NESV to increase its original offer last week, leading the group, fronted by John W Henry, to emerge as the favoured party. Lim believes his offer was at least as attractive as that on the table from the owners of the Boston Red Sox.

    It is being reported by the BBC that Lim was told Liverpool's board was concerned that NESV would have to borrow to finance the takeover. But Henry's group has insisted it will not load up the Premier League side with debt.

    The American group's £300 million agreement is signed and sealed, pending High Court hearings this week which will address the issue of whether chairman Martin Broughton and the board had the authority to sell the club against the wishes of the co-owners, who stand to lose £144 million if the NESV deal goes through.

    Clearly Lim is looking closely at the opportunity that might arise if Hicks should win his court case, nullifying the NESV deal, and the club ends up in administration on Friday, when the deadline expires for the Americans to repay Royal Bank of Scotland £237 million.

    Lim owns several Manchester United-themed bars in Asia and according to Forbes magazine is said to have a £1 billion fortune.

    Liverpool does not need pretenders to manage the club.

    Even though Broughton is a Chelsea fan, I believe he has exercise tremendous professionalism in selling Liverpool FC to people who are sincere in bringing glory to the club.

    By coming head on with the owners, he has do all that he can to protect the interest of Liverpool FC because administration and points docking will only lead to more severe consequences.

    Much as I'd like a Singaporean to own LFC, I'd rather have somebody with a proven record in sports management take over.

    RBS obtains injunction against Hicks and Gillett

    Royal Bank of Scotland has secured an injunction preventing Tom Hicks and George Gillett from removing independent chairman Martin Broughton or any other Liverpool board members ahead of Tuesday's court case.

    The outcome of the case between RBS and the two Americans in the High Court is of huge importance to Liverpool as it will establish whether the board can be reconstituted with Broughton, commercial director Ian Ayre and managing director Christian Purslow in place. The three men agreed to sell the club to New England Sports Ventures (NESV) last week, against the wishes of Hicks and Gillett.

    If the court rules in favour of the co-owners then the takeover will not go through and the Reds could enter administration and possibly incur a nine-point penalty on Friday, when the deadline expires to repay RBS £237 million.

    Tuesday's case is not the declaratory judgement, that Broughton has referred to previously, that the Liverpool board acted validly by approving the £300 million sale of the club to NESV. That case is now expected to take place later in the week.

    RBS lent Hicks and Gillett the money to purchase Liverpool in March 2007 and when the two Americans sought a six-month extension on the loan in April 2010, the bank oversaw the reconstitution of the Liverpool board, including bringing in Martin Broughton as independent chairman.

    When Broughton sought to complete a takeover deal with Boston Red Sox owners NESV last week, Hicks responded by attempting to remove Ayre and Purslow from the board and replacing them with his son Mack and associate Lori McCutcheon.

    RBS is claiming in the High Court that Hicks and Gillett breached their agreement with the bank when attempting to remove Ayre and Purslow from the board, and has won an injunction preventing them from completing a similar move ahead of Tuesday's crucial hearing.

    RBS said in a statement: "RBS in its capacity as lender to the Kop group of companies received the benefit of various contractual undertakings from Mr. Hicks and Mr. Gillett in relation to the corporate governance arrangements that Mr. Hicks and Mr. Gillett agreed would apply to the Kop group of companies with effect from April 2010.

    "Those undertakings provided for the appointment of Mr Broughton as chairman of the board and the appointment of the chief executive and commercial director of LFC to the Kop boards.

    "As is well known, Mr. Hicks and Mr. Gillett purported to make changes to those corporate governance arrangements on 4 October. This was in breach of those contractual undertakings.

    "In light of that purported breach of contract RBS sought and obtained on Friday 8 October 2010 an interim injunction against Mr. Hicks and Mr. Gillett until a further hearing scheduled for tomorrow [Tuesday].

    "Among other things, that interim injunction prevents Mr. Hicks or Mr. Gillett taking any steps to remove or replace Mr. Broughton from his position as chairman of the board of the Kop companies or from taking any other steps to appoint or remove any directors from the board of the Kop companies.

    "The proceedings tomorrow represent the continuation of Friday's proceedings and relates to breach of contract only. These proceedings do not represent steps by RBS to enforce its security or to appoint an administrator. We are unable to provide any visibility on timing for resolution of these proceedings at this stage."

    Royal Bank of Scotland PLC v Hicks & others is among a number of applications to be heard by Mr Justice Floyd at 1030 BST in Court 18. The case may not be concluded on Tuesday but it is anticipated it will be by the end of the week.

    The key issue to be decided is whether Broughton had the authority to agree the sale of the club to NESV against the wishes of Hicks and Gillett, who believe the takeover undervalues Liverpool and stand to lose £144 million if it goes through.

    Broughton claims that RBS requested undertakings from Hicks and Gillett in April that only he could make changes to the board. Hicks has denied that any such undertakings are in place and claims the sale is invalid as a result.

    The Hicks camp is remaining silent following the latest developments. However, it is understood that the American has no intention of turning up at court and is currently in his home country. A contingent of Liverpool fans are expected to be outside court on Tuesday.

    He is just trying to own the club. He can always hire professionals to run the club. But I think he won't succeed by making his intention known so late. I think it is just trying to create media awareness...that Peter Lim is remeiser King!
