LINCOLN HOLDINGS, LLC In the spring of 1999 Lincoln Holdings LLC purchased 100% of the Washington Capitals (held in the name of Lincoln Hockey LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Lincoln Holdings) and, together with a subsequent purchase, approximately 44% of Washington Sports and Entertainment Limited Partnership (WSELP). WSELP owns 100% of the NBA Washington Wizards, Verizon Center and the Baltimore-Washington Ticketmaster franchise. In 2005 Lincoln Holdings purchased the WNBA’s Washington Mystics from WSELP. Lincoln Holdings has a right of first refusal on the sale of any of the individual teams or other assets, as well as an option to purchase Abe Pollin’s majority interest in WSELP. All of the current partners of Lincoln Holdings are extremely active in the Washington-area business community. Dick Patrick, along with Ted Leonsis, is one of the original partners in Lincoln Holdings LLC, which was formed in the spring of 1999. A mainstay for the Washington Capitals’ franchise for more than two decades, the owner, president and alternate governor continues to lead the club with his tireless effort and intense desire to continue a family tradition – engraving the Patrick name onto the Stanley Cup. Patrick, who joined the Capitals prior to the 1982-83 season, guides the organization on a daily basis. The former chairman of the NHL Finance Committee, Patrick has been instrumental in the Capitals’ long-term success as a franchise both on and off the ice. Patrick was a leader in the conception and development of the Kettler Capitals Iceplex, the team’s state-of-the-art training center and office building that opened in 2006 in Arlington, Va. Born in 1946 in Victoria, B.C., Patrick grew up in the United States. He earned his undergraduate degree from Dartmouth College and a law degree from the Washington College of Law at American University. He has developed commercial real estate in the Washington, D.C., area for more than 20 years and, while raising children who have skated within local youth hockey programs, he has been instrumental in increasing the Capitals’ involvement in youth programs throughout the area. Jack Davies was the founder and president of AOL International and now serves on the board of directors of Scholastic, the global children’s publishing and media company. Prior to joining AOL in 1993, Davies was managing director of Citicorp’s London-based consumer mortgage business after serving as vice president, Europe, for RCA Records. He began his career at General Electric where he held numerous senior consumer marketing positions. Davies earned an MBA in Marketing (1973) and a BA in Political Science (1972) from the University of Rochester.
