Dave King’s legal representative told the Court of Session in Edinburgh that their client is skint!

Failure to comply with a ruling from the Takeover Appeal Board had forced another court appearance for the South African based criminal who wasn’t present in court.

King’s actions alongwith the so-called three bears at the start of 2015 brought them control of Sevco but having acted together throughout they were duty bound to make an offer to buy out the other shareholders.

The claim that the four ‘investors’ were working alone was demolished by the trail of paperwork with King switching his defence to claim that the purchase was from New Oasis Asset Limited rather than himsdelf.

While the cost of buying up shares may only amount to around £2m, producing a prospectus, getting a NOMAD and putting money into an escrow account is way beyond the means of the policeman’s son from Castlemilk.

With no real defence for failing to comply with the Takeover Appeal Board King faces a range of sanctions, one of which is a custodial sentence.
