In a move that indicates owner Joe Lewis is indeed looking to sell Tottenham, Monday saw the North London club publish its share information in accordance with Rule 2.10 of the City Code on Takeovers and Mergers.
In accordance with Rule 2.10 of the City Code on Takeovers and Mergers (the "Code"), THFC confirms that, as at the close of business on 12 September 2014, it had 213,102,209 ordinary shares of 5 pence each in issue. The International Securities Identification Number for THFC shares is GB0008962986.
The unveiling of the share information suggests that Tottenham have received a sizable offer, and it could be one from American investment firm Cain Hoy, which revealed on Friday that it was in the initial stages of preparing a cash offer for the club.
Tottenham responded by claiming they hadn't engaged in any takeover talks with Cain Hoy, but added that they had met with the firm to discuss financing for their newly-planned stadium.
