Alpari UK has looked for a buyer to take over its business as soon as possible to prevent the company from declaring insolvency. FortuneZ has just learned that a shareholder deadlock of the broker might lead to a delay in sales talks.
Andrey Dashin, the majority owner of Alpari UK, in a conversation with FortuneZ said that he “was not aware of and was not invited to take part in any negotiations to sell Alpari UK to FXCM or anyone else.”
FortuneZ has also learned that the broker must report to the FCA within the next hour if any deal has materialized to prevent the insolvency declaration, and according to FortuneZ sources no deal has been reached.
At 10:30 am UK time, all Alpari employees have a major meeting in the offices where the firm going insolvent is expected to be announced. As far as FortuneZ knows, client funds have not been compromised as they are segregated based on FCA rules.
