Notts County reveal investor names

Munto Finance successfully completed a takeover of the League Two side in July.

The Football League confirmed last week that they would be investigating Munto Finance’s purchase of the club and the Magpies is now keen on getting their owners approved.

The Shafti family and the Hyat family are two of those who have invested in the Munto consortium.

Anwar Shafi said: “I can confirm that the families have a significant holding in Qadbak and are very pleased with the diversified range of assets we have invested in.

“But we are a private business and do not wish to comment any further.”

A club statement said: “Until now we have tried to respect the wish for privacy of our investors.

“But the confusion and misplaced allegations over the last few days have forced us to ask them to reveal themselves.

“Despite giving the Football League every possible answer and information well beyond any legal obligation they have yet to publicly confirm their approval.

“We hope this statement will speed that process considerably.”
