Clipper in million-dollar dispute with former soccer boss

Clipper believes it has been duped out of USD 12.6 million in connection with the acquisition of a shareholding in Danish national soccer arena, Parken, and has claimed damages from its management. Former Chairman of Parken, Flemming Østergaard, struggles to understand the basis for the claim.

Clipper Group has since become aware of its own limited knowledge of this field, CFO Flemming Steen explains.
