Are we about to go into administration and if so what would that mean? Rumours on social media only at the moment, but a bit unsettling if true.

Ah a rumour started by rugby united. Don’t think I will take it seriously until reported by a proper journalist with some actual info.

I’d be surprised. Owners have said they’re going to back the club until a sale goes through.

As rumours go this is nearly as daft as the one that had Harry Thacker "nailed on" as a signing, from a regular poster " in the know".

But if true very worrying.

What are the penalties (if any) for going into administration?

Notwithstanding the status of the rumour, it would be interesting to hear our resident legal beagles' views on what, hypothetically, might happen following an insolvency?

22pt deduction? ~ Perhaps academic given our current performances.

Would the 'P' shares be up for grabs as a tangible asset?

Would Worcester Warriors RFC be allowed to continue next season in the Championship (assuming new owners could be found for the assets)?

Has been retracted. Panic over until we here something from someone else - or someone buys the club.

I thought that we had no debt, thanks to the generosity of our owners.

That's mu understanding - debt free in preparation for a sale.

Lots of smoke around the club at the moment so all sorts of rumours cropping up.

There's debt and there's debt.

Sorry to be totally pedantic, but I think when the club says it is "debt free" it means that there are no medium / long term loans outstanding.

It will have incurred, and will still be incurring, debt everyday simply by turning on the electricity, taking in food supplies and leaving paying its staff to the end of the month. That's totally normal. Very nearly every business up and down the land will be doing this day in day out. That's what "creditors" in the balance sheet is for.

But I believe that that is totally academic. It is however totally symptomatic of the view of the club which is being taken by many of its potential supporter base. Rumours such as this can be corrosive. They speak of a need for change. See EG thread.

Technically without the written support and guarantee provided by the club owners (CD and The Allens) in each set of Financial statements for the club for the majority of years reported, i think the numbers suggest we are technically insolvent due to historic and current liabilities and obligations.

This is not dissimilar to a Football club like Chelsea backed by Abromovich billions investment, which if he wanted to be repaid tomorrow, would render the club financially broken.

This has always been the case technically, once CD and Directors invested the required sums to make the club what it is now.

At the risk of being pedantic - administration isn't a debt thing, its a liquidity thing

Though granted the absence of debt makes it rather difficult to have difficulty servicing it smiling smiley
