The president and his board sign before a notary, with the Banc Sabadell and JB Capital Markets umbrella, the last procedure before taking office, this Wednesday at 6:00 p.m. on the Camp Nou lawn
Joan Laporta has signed this Monday the endorsement to be president of Barça. After the departure of Jaume Giró, Eduard romeo, Vice President of Audax Renovables, and Joan Soler, president of Vilafranca FC, will endorse with their signature part of the 124.6 million that must be deposited with the LFP this Tuesday so that the president can take office on Wednesday on the Camp Nou pitch.
The Banco Sabadell and JB Capital Markets They’ve finished unlocking the tricky endorsement issue. The Catalan entity has only accepted real estate. It has also been important, after the departure of Giró, the entry into play of Audax, a renewables company from Badalona in which Romeu is the vice president and in which he entered as a shareholder in December Goldman sachs. It should be remembered that this last company closed with the previous Barça board an agreement of 815 million to be returned in 25 years from the moment of completion of the Camp Nou reform (725 for the cost of the work and 90 for interest plus initial financial costs). A contract that Laporta said in the campaign that he would study.
For the owner, founder and first shareholder of Audax, Jose Elijah Navarro, the entry of his vice-president in the board of directors of Barça is a “personal project of Romeu”. As he has commented to EL PERIÓDICO, “Audax he cannot put money into Barça as it is a listed company, it is totally impossible. “” Romeu contributes his assets and is able to guarantee his part within the board, the problem is that not all the members of Laporta’s team can guarantee with his money the project, “he explains. Regarding his possible financial support for the Laporta project, Elías is cautious:” It makes no sense to put my money in a project that I do not control or in which I do not participate. I can help at a management or knowledge level, but materially I can’t join the Barça board because I don’t have the necessary seniority“.

Barça’s current financial situation requires creative solutions that unlock revenue paralysis. The ‘Audax solution’ comes to be adjusted appropriately to the situation, with Romeu’s experience in futures contracts and a view beyond the horizon that everyone sees with the naked eye.
The other new name among the firms is that of Joan Soler, the president of Vilafranca. The leader appeared in the candidacy of Jordi Farré. On Wednesday he will be present at the inauguration of Laporta, which will take place at 6:00 p.m. at the Camp Nou in a ceremony with 350 guests, with relatives and friends of the new leaders.
