GPH Malta Finance p.l.c. (the “Issuer”) has announced the issuance of €25,000,000 6.25% Unsecured Bonds maturing in 2030, having a nominal value of €100 per bond issued and redeemable at par.  

Business Overview 

The Guarantor is the world’s largest independent cruise port operator, with an established presence in the Caribbean, Mediterranean and Asia-Pacific regions, and a commercial port operation in Montenegro. The Group’s business divisions are twofold: – cruise business operations and commercial business operations. 

The Group’s commercial port handles cargo from two distinct categories: (i) containers; and (ii) general bulk. It offers a range of complementary services in connection therewith, including stuffing and unstuffing containers, warehouse services and cargo weighing. 

The Issuer is a special purpose vehicle which has been incorporated for the purposes of this Bond Issue and does not itself carry on any trading activity other than for the purpose of funding the Group and when the demands of its business so require and is accordingly economically dependent on the Guarantor and other Group companies. 

The Group’s cruise revenues are generated through two primary service categories: 

(i) core port services: revenues are primarily derived from handling cruise ships and their passengers and crew through terminal and marine services. The Group’s customers and main counterparties are the world’s leading cruise operators. 

(ii) ancillary services: revenues are derived from a portfolio of additional services offered at each port, including vessel and port services, destination and shoreside services and area and terminal management. 

Use of Proceeds 

The aggregate proceeds from the Bond Issue, which net of Bond Issue expenses are expected to amount to approximately €24,250,000, is intended to be utilised by the Issuer for the following purposes: 
(a) an amount of approximately €22,000,000 shall be on-lent by the Issuer to selected members of the Group via the Guarantor for the purposes of financing, whether in whole or in part, the Group’s investments which have already been committed under the corresponding agreements entered into in respect of the Canary Island cruise ports, including Las Palmas; the Tarragona Cruise Port; the Kalundborg Cruise Port and the Alicante Cruise Port; and
