I am confused or dont understand what our swedish friend write all the time. As I see it, members (fans) must have majority in swedish club, not one person (like Harkimo in Jokerit).

Som motprestation får Hugo Stenbeck 51 procent av aktierna i Malmö Redhawks Holding AB.

In return get Hugo Stenbeck 51 percent stake in Malmö Redhawks Holding AB.
Malmö Redhawks Holding AB is owner of RedHawks, right? Stenbeck has/had majority here, right?

Btw, it seems he does not want to spend any money for club anymore.


I found the answer

The sports club has transferred the elite hockey team to the new company on a 30 year contract. Compensation for this is 15 mio SEK that the club uses to pay off debt and avoid the bankruptcy. Part of this company deal is also that Percy Nilsson has dropped his claims on the club that was in excess of 100 mio SEK.
