Central Business Centres plc has announced the issue of €6,000,000 (Series 1 Tranche 1) of 4.4% Unsecured Bonds redeemable in 2027, with a nominal value of €100 issued at par. The issue described herein is part of the €10,000,000 Unsecured Bond Issuance Program of Central Business Centres plc.
CBC plc was established as a property development company operating principally within the real-estate and property market, to carry out the business of a finance, investment, property development and property-owning company. The Properties held by the Issuer shall be constructed, developed and/or finished, as the case may be, for rental to third parties.
The property market in Malta has been gaining pace in recent years in the form of higher demand for high quality office space and residences. The increase has been the result of several international as well as local companies seeking to improve the working place for their employees, in part to improve employee retention and well-being.
The Project is geared towards the development of small to medium sized office space, which, in the opinion of the Directors represents a vacuum in the real-estate local market which has seen the construction and development of larger scale commercial property projects.
