The International Sports Capital consortium, owned by business tycoon Erick Thohir and his two Indonesian partners Rosan Roeslani and Handy Soetedjo, carried out a 10 million euro capital increase to take over the club.

Another 65 million euros was paid as a premium on the shares bought to reach a 70 percent stake, a source close to the club said.

The deal values the club at around 350 million euros, the source said.
