Wait, I'm assuming his company is private. So how could any media find out how much is the company's debts or how much cash it has? For a private company, this information is confidential. Was it leaked by an insider? Or did the media make it up?
If the company is duly registered in Sweden, it's figures are publicly available. By law, as all companies, no matter if stock noted or privately owned, have publication rules to follow. AFAIK, even salaries are publicly available.
Then again, you are right, no big deal with his travel arrangements. Buy a business class ticket and you have VIP lounge access. No idea what the author thinks an "ordinary businessman" would do - travel in coach and then take the subway to city center?
Why would he register in Sweden when his business is clearly based in London?
It was my assumption, because I know that Sweden has the rules to publish. I was wrong, sorry.
The company mentioned in the article is indeed registered in the UK, BUT the financial info is publicly available nevertheless, as there seem to be publication rules in the UK as well.
See here, the annual Report in question is obviously the one published in Jan this year:https://beta.companieshou...y/05099271/filing-history
That said, it's only ONE of his companies, and the debts mentioned are with a related Party (so most probably with another company at least partly owned by Chris), which makes it a totally useless info that "his company is in a loss" - if you don't have the full group picture, you cannot guess from these figures alone about his personal financial standing.
It is bad journalism to suggest otherwise.
