Everton’s selling price for pending buyers of 777 could drop depending on their final Premier League position… after inserting ‘sporting performance clause’ into deal with current Toffees owner Farhad Moshiri

  • Moshiri signed an agreement with an American private equity firm in September 2023
  • A club may suffer further points deductions if new violations are discovered
  • Fair play to Reading fans. I wouldn’t normally say this about a pitch invasion, but sometimes you have to stand up for what you believe in – It’s All Kicking Off

Everton’s selling price for the 777 partners will be determined by their final position in the Premier League this season, with the value of the club decreasing as they fall in the table.

Mail Sport has learned that 777 insisted on inserting so-called «sporting performance clauses» into the takeover deal agreed with Everton owner Farhad Moshiri last September as a safeguard against the threat of points being deducted.

Everton were hit with a second Premier League spendthrift charge on Monday and could lose more points this season, having been docked 10 in November for last season’s breaches, but the setback should not affect the takeover as 777 consider their proposed investment to be protected.

While the American private equity firm is not entitled to break the contract if Everton pick up more points and are subsequently relegated, it is understood that the final sale price will be closely linked to the club’s final position this season.

The existence of the step-down clause was widely reported when the proposed purchase of the 777 was announced in September, but the other «sport performance» clauses were not, reflecting Moshiri’s desperation to sell.

While the exact amount varies each season, finishing one place higher in the Premier League is worth around £2.5m a year in club fees, a factor 777 took into account in their bid for Moshiri.

777 remain determined to buy Everton and hope to get the go-ahead from the Premier League later this month. The club’s potential new owners have already invested around £140m in unsecured loans in Everton since September, money they could lose if the sale does not go through as they fall into the back row of creditors.

Everton and 777 declined to comment.
