Calamatta Cuschieri Investment Services Ltd is acting as Placement Agent and Manager for this bond issue.
Application has been made to the exchange for the bonds to be admitted to trading on prospects MTF. Prospects is a market designed primarily for emerging and smaller companies to which a higher investment risk tends to be attached. Prospects MTF securities are not admitted to the official list of the Malta stock exchange. Securities admitted to the Prospects MTF are issued by small and medium-sized enterprises (SME’s). Investment in smaller companies can involve greater risk than is generally associated with investment in larger, more established companies, increasing issuer default risk and can result in significant capital losses. Securities issued by SMEs tend to be illiquid. The illiquidity factor increases the risk for investors and when funds are needed, there might not be a market to sell to liquidate position. An investor should limit the exposure to securities on Prospects. Prospective investors are to read the Company Admission Document prior to taking any investment decisions. Important information about the Issuer and related associated risks are detailed in the Company Admission Document
Calamatta Cuschieri Investment Services Ltd, (CCIS) a licensed investment firm, cannot provide financial advice to buy or sell this bond, at Initial Offering stage and secondary market thereafter, due to the inevitable conflict of interest that exists between the Distributor (CCIS) and the Issuer (CCF), both part of CC Group.
Investors are warned herewith that a suitability assessment in line with their individual circumstances will not be carried out by “Distributors” affiliated with the Issuer, mainly Calamatta Cuschieri Investment Services Ltd (CCIS). Clients seeking financial advice on this Issue should contact an independent financial adviser outside the CC Group. This means that staff at CCIS will be simply handling/processing the initial subscription, or transmission of order to buy and subsequently to sell, without assessing if the bond in question is deemed to be proper for you as a client in line with your financial and individual needs. CCIS being affiliated with the Issuer, will be in a biased position throughout the life time of the bond to provide a financial opinion on the Issuer.
