Derby County's holding company has filed an update at Companies House.
Derby County (The Rams) Limited has to update Companies House annually with a 'confirmation statement' to ensure that the information held is correct. The company was incorporated back in June as David Clowes began the process of finalising his acquisition of the Rams.
Clowes purchased Pride Park Stadium from its former owner Mel Morris and then brought the stricken football club out of administration. Clowes runs the property firm Clowes Developments (UK) Limited and the club is now under that umbrella along with Pride Park, which was owned by a company controlled by Morris.

When the Rams were brought out of administration, Derby County (The Rams) Limited became the club's parent company with a new board of directors set up. Clowes Developments (UK) Limited was given 'significant control' of the parent company and Companies House uploaded a confirmation statement on Saturday.
It is the first confirmation statement the company has issued given its infancy and it is a straightforward process where shareholders' names are confirmed along with how much is held in the company. In this case, it is the same 500,000 ordinary shares that were issued back in June.
Richard Tavernor, Ian Dickinson and Clowes are directors of the company and sit on the board of the Rams. Last week Clowes and the club's board took the decision to relieve Liam Rosenior of his interim manager duties and bring in serial League One promotion winner Paul Warne on a contract until 2026.
"As was made clear in the summer, the board intended to take a period of time evaluating every aspect of the club and having done that, we believe Paul’s track record of success at this level fits perfectly into our long-term strategy," the board of directors said.
