PSG looks to the future with more optimism. Not only thanks to the Messi effect, which doped merchandising sales, but also due to a 171 million euro capital increase. An operation decided by the Qsi fund headed by the Emir of Qatar, and which must allow the club from the French capital to compensate for the losses caused by the health crisis. The forecast deficit for the current season is estimated at 250 million, net of player disposals by June.
The capital of the Psg company, however, thus rises to 511.4 million euros, as explained by the newspaper Le Parisien, which recalls how in 2011, at the time of the transfer of ownership to the Qsi fund, it stood at 893 thousand euros. A differential that clearly illustrates the leap in quality of the club, which has become a world brand, with the purchase of great players, most recently Messi, but who has reached zero euros. The Argentine still has a salary of around 35 million a year, but is generating extra income. Only with the sale of jerseys, an increase in receipts of the order of 40% is expected.
A progression that did not stop Qsi’s desire to consolidate the company’s financial base, issuing new shares at € 3.4 for a global amount of 171 million. This is the second capital increase after the one, from 316 million decided in 2018, linked to the investment of 402 million for the purchases of Neymar (222) and Mbappé (180). The PSG can therefore face the current season with more serenity, weighed down by a forecast deficit of the order of 250 million, which could still be reduced not only with the sale of some players, but also with the increase in merchandising and box office. In addition to a virtuous path in the Champions League, which the emir hopes to win in the year of the World Cup in Qatar.
