As a team, we are fully committed to making sure we do our utmost to continue to build M&Z as one of Malta’s leading importers and distributors of consumer products. I would also like to thank our advisors Rizzo, Farrugia & Co. (Stockbrokers) Ltd, Ganado Advocates and PricewaterhouseCoopers, for their support in this successful share offer.”

From the 11,550,000 Sale Shares that were on offer, 4,620,000 Sale Shares were allocated to Authorised Intermediaries as set out in the Pre-Allocation Agreements described in the Prospectus. Applications for a total of 895,000 Sale Shares were received from Authorised Intermediaries in respect of Preferred Applicants and these have been allocated in full in accordance with the terms of the Prospectus. Applications for a total of 8,325,200 Sale Shares were also received from the Authorised Intermediaries in respect of the remaining 6,035,000 Sale Shares that were left available.
