Press article – re General Meeting

From the South Wales Echo

FAN power looks to have won the day at Cardiff City with the club seemingly agreeing to a meeting of shareholders.

With financial uncertainty surrounding the Bluebirds the Cardiff City Supporter’s Trust had been looking to force chairman Peter Ridsdale and his fellow board members into outlining the extent of any problems the club is labouring under.

The Trust had been working on getting a group of small shareholders together to force an Extraordinary General Meeting at which the club would have to provide an up to date set of accounts and outline its future financial strategy.

The Trust was well on its way to securing the holders of five per cent of total shares in the club needed to force that meeting, but now the board has verbally agreed to hold a general meeting after an initial request from the supporter’s organisation.

It is understood in a telephone call to the Trust, Cardiff City Football Club (Holdings) Ltd secretary and board member Alan Whiteley verbally agreed to holding the meeting.
