Its been documented so many times, just do a bit of research, instead of just quoting your guesses.
First clue: Parish has a 18% stake,

Thankfully, the PL brass were able to look past the American-ness of the applicant, and make an objective decision

Sure money in bits and also ring fenced for New stand.
That values the club at £450m which clearly it isn't and what about the other shareholders.

Investment is £87.5m for a "close to 18% stake" according to Ed Aarons.

I'm all for widening the investment base. Our less rosy financial history was the result of individuals getting in way over their heads and losing everything. With the risk shared across some extremely broad shoulders, cumulative business acumen also worth a considerable amount and the structure in place whereby a local fan who understands the club and the fans intimately is the day-to-day face and running of the show is just about as excellent a structure as we could wish for I think.

If it was £87.5m for say 17.5% that'd value the club at £500m right?

Looks to me like he has a genuine passion for football, has a bit more time on his hands, and is attracted to the Palace vibe, strategic plans, history and relative size compared to the big boys. And the opportunity was there at the right time.

I guess you never know, but what’s not to like? The investment should help us move forward.

All you have to do is say thank you to our Americans.
I think in general the wider American owners that have arrived have introduced an unpalatable level of greed. For me it also about them wanting to replicate the US franchise model, which would irreparably damage the football pyramid in this country, without having a full understanding of the implications and driving for profit at all costs.

We may have been lucky with our owners so far because we have SP but going forward there is a drive to leverage the academies which may be a short to medium term profit generator and in the longer term new income streams will inevitably be sought which will always risk the soul of football and put the overall game at risk

But I guess we can't turn up our nose at a time like this. Hope we don't regret it later.

Indeed! although we have shares with different voting rights so not all shares may be worth the same.

SP and the other shareholders must have seen him coming then

Before the pandemic it was reported that the owners were looking to sell the club for about £220m. Given the pandemic I would suggest that the value has fallen.

As has been reported elsewhere it is more likely that his investment will be in the form of equity (say £30m) and via interest free loans for the remainder.

Sorry but the greed started when the Premier League was formed. The fact that football clubs are run like no other business doesn't help.

Also I don't see any new British owners coming forward.

Tickled that Textor considered Newcastle but plumped for Palace. That will not go down well with the Geordie's (or Mike Ashley).
