Derek Richardson Wasps
The company which controls Wasps and the Ricoh Arena has seen its annual pre-tax losses double, with the group still reliant on support from its millionaire owner.
Net debt in the accounts for the year ending June 2018, including a £35million bond, now stands at £55.8m and the total owed to Irish millionaire owner Derek Richardson hitting £18.6million, up from £12.9m in 2017.
The latest accounts for Wasps Holdings Ltd, which includes Wasps, stadium operators Arena Coventry Limited and events company IEC Experience Ltd, shows much of the increased losses were down to one-off items.
This includes paying out £400,000 this year alone to fight a legal battle over the sale of the Ricoh Arena with the parent companies of tenants Coventry City.
Derek Richardson Controversy
It seems he is doing the best job without harming others and has been a straight person in his life, for which he has not been in any controversy yet.
Derek Richardson News
Wasps, who won two Heineken Cups but never seemed sure of a sound future, appear safe and on their way to a home of their own, probably back in west London, after their new owner was revealed as Derek Richardson, a London-based Irish businessman whose money comes from online insurance.
Almost exactly a year after a brush with the twin threats of relegation and administration the club confirmed the identity of their principal shareholder, who immediately said that continuing their ground share at Adams Park was not an option and that work had already started on looking for possible sites.
“Increasing revenue is an important part of a five-year strategic plan which we are currently finalising,” said Richardson. “There is a combination of ways we can do this. Very obviously we want to increase revenue from ticket sales, increase sponsorship income and then, longer term, generate vital revenue through owning or co-owning our own stadium.
“This is something we have already begun exploring but it is a project that will take some time. We are also very keen to invest in new training and administrative facilities for the club and this is another project that is already underway and should be something we can advance quickly over the next year or so.”
Owning a stadium was the dream of Ken Moss, the former player who put together the consortium which bailed out Wasps in 2012. However, within months Moss had gone and the idea of leaving High Wycombe was put on hold.
In September, after Dai Young had spent a summer rebuilding the playing squad, signing Stephen Jones, Tom Palmer, and James Haskell to complement the emerging talents of Elliot Daly, Joe Launchbury and Christian Wade, it was promised that those on the consortium would be made known within weeks. However, it was not until Wednesday that Richardson was identified.
The first thing he did was throw support behind Young, describing him as a “world-leading” director of rugby, while the Wasps chief executive, Nick Eastwood, said the deal meant “a full stop to the uncertainty that has hung over the club in recent years”. As recently as November Wasps had to apologize for an “administrative error” which resulted in some players not being paid.
The uncertainty caused by that glitch is thought to have affected the decision of Billy Vunipola, one of the club’s young stars, to move to Saracens and play alongside his brother.
Richardson, who has businesses in London, Dublin and the Czech Republic, launched 123.ie, the first mass-market online insurance business in Ireland. Two years ago he sold it to Royal Sun Alliance for around €65m, with his stake earning him €35m. And while that is nothing like the sums available to Bath’s owner, Bruce Craig, who sold his company for not far short of a billion, it gives Young and his team the security necessary to push on.
Despite losing their last four games Wasps are only a point off Heineken Cup rugby next season and, with three rounds to go, are in a group including Bath and Exeter, with only two points between them. They face Exeter in the penultimate game, sandwiched between trips to second-placed Leicester on Sunday and Sale on the final day of the regular season.
The Ireland and Lions flanker Stepher Ferris seems certain to leave Ulster when his IRFA contract expires in June, with Japan a possible destination for the 27-year-old. Mark Anscombe, Ulster’s head coach, said a move would “most probably” happen, but added: “I don’t know if it’s signed or sealed.”
