Last week, a report started circulating over the weekend that the Glazer family would pull Man Utd off the market. Thus, the much-awaited Manchester United takeover will not go through. This latest Man Utd sale news has made the club’s stock price plummet registering a record fall.
Manchester United became a public traded company in 2012. In March 2012, United suffer a record drop of 13.8% in share price. However, yesterday’s fall broke that record as the price fell 18.22% in one day. That was the magnitude of the latest Man Utd takeover news that stated the Glazers will not sell until 2025.
The market value of Manchester United fell by £600m.
The market capitalization of Manchester United is £3bn. However, the Glazers wanted £6bn to sell Man Utd. But, last weekend, reports broke that Glazers will pull the club off the market and look to sell the club at £6bn in 2025. This negatively impacted the club’s valuation with share price plummeting.
Manchester United’s shares fell by a record amount for a single day today. Shares down 21% at one point & currently at 18%. Over £550m taken off market value. Numbers on course for worst day in #MUFC‘s 11 years as a public company as market reacts to reports Glazers won’t sell.📉 pic.twitter.com/W1LJhte4l2
