The Bonds are expected to be admitted to the Official List of the Malta Stock Exchange on 27 October 2017 and trading is expected to commence on 30 October 2017. Trading in the EUR Bonds and the GBP Bonds shall take place on the Malta Stock Exchange in multiples of €1,000 and £1,000 respectively, subject to the retention of a minimum holding of €25,000 or £25,000, as applicable, by each individual holder of the EUR Bonds or the GBP Bonds.
The Bonds are unsecured and subordinated. Subordination means that the rights and claims of Bondholders in respect of the payment of capital and interest on the Bonds will, in the event of dissolution and winding up of the Issuer, rank after the claims of all unsubordinated debt and will not be repaid until all other unsubordinated debt outstanding at the time has been settled. The value of investments can rise or fall, and past performance is not necessarily indicative of future performance. Prospective investors are urged to consult an independent financial adviser prior to investing in the Bonds.
