With the New York Mets in the world series, not only are fans thrilled
but also investors in the team. One of those investors is HBO’s Bill Maher. He became an investor in the team back in 2012. His stake in the team is anywhere from $4 Million to $20 Million. Here is a small snippet from ESPN:
Maher said he became aware the Mets were seeking minority investors by reading it in The New York Times in December. He would not disclose the precise percentage he now owns.
Fred Wilpon in March announced the family successfully had raised $240 million through the share of 12 blocks. He declined to identify most of the investors, beyond four shares purchased by cable companies who share ownership of SportsNet New York with the Mets ownership family.
