The Hibs’ board have responded to the supporters’ group ‘BuyHibs’ who launched their bid to take control of the club at a press conference at the Hibernian Supporters’ Club in Sunnyside yesterday.
In a statement on the club website, Chief Executive Leeann Dempster said: “We are delighted to learn that Pat Stanton is leading and has launched a campaign to encourage supporters to invest in the ownership of the Club and fund its sporting ambitions.
“We look forward to having a positive conversation with BuyHibs so that we can understand the full details of their proposals and how they are intended to both keep the Club safe and take it forward.
“It is well known that the Board has been consulting widely with supporters and is fine tuning its strategy for the future of the Club.
“This will be presented to the existing 1,700 shareholders of the Club at the forthcoming AGM and shared with supporters and the wider Hibernian family.
“This is a genuinely exciting period of change at the Club and the Board has consulted widely and will continue to listen to all contributions to make sure that all supporters are involved.”
