Hutchy sells 4%Perth Wildcats

You know a company is in trouble when they sneak in a short line in their quarterly announcement regarding sale of 4% of Perth Wildcats. Not much detail at all except the fact he received $1.5m and it is a packaged deal which includes shares in his other sporting teams.

* SEG raised a total of $1.5 million for a minority share in its sporting teams franchises. These funds are to be put towards
repayment of debt as agreed with SEG's financier. SEG is seeking to raise further funds for a share in its sporting teams business, unlocking the strategic value created through its ownership of four professional basketball teams and one
professional netball team.

Net financing cash inflows of $0.2 million relating to $1.5 million* of funds raised for a minority share in the sports
teams business offset by $1.3 million in repayments of borrowings.

Are the Wildcats worth $37.5m?

I'm sorry, but for this deal, I’m out

I did the same calculation

It's for equity in all 4 teams that SEG owns which you would say Wildcats are the biggest piece. He paid around 8.5 from memory just for Perth so on paper this is proving the LK model of VC style investing is working.

It is probably good money being put in after bad by an existing investor to buy SEG some time as the bank is circling.

They sold 4% of their portfolio that includes the Wildcats, not just the Wildcats.

So $1.5m / 0.04 is not the Wildcats Valuation.
