AIK Soars After Qualifying for Europa League: Stockholm Mover

Aug. 31 (Bloomberg) -- AIK Fotboll AB rose the most in a year after the Swedish club recovered from a 1-0 first-leg loss to CSKA Moscow to win 2-0 in Russia yesterday in the return match, advancing to the group stage of the UEFA Europa League.

AIK are guaranteed 1.3 million euros ($1.6 million) from UEFA for reaching the group competition and can expect at least 25 million kronor ($3.7 million) in total proceeds from yesterday’s 2-1 aggregate victory in Moscow, according to an estimate by newspaper Svenska Dagbladet.

The stock was up 20 percent to 2.12 kronor at 10 a.m. local time, the biggest gain since Aug. 12, 2011.

AIK, based in Solna, a suburb of Stockholm, ranks as 202 on UEFA’s ranking of European clubs, while CSKA Moscow, the 2005 UEFA Cup Champion, is ranked 18. AIK made a first-half loss of 10.1 million kronor, it said on Aug. 15, compared with a 6.9 million krona loss a year earlier.

The 48-team group stage draw will take place at 1 p.m. in Monaco today where 31 playoff winners join the seven automatic qualifiers, including defending champion Atletico Madrid and Tottenham, and the 10 playoff losers from the elite Champions League.
