 Business Overview  

 The Group traces its origin to its first The Convenience Shop outlet in Zebbug, which was opened in 2009. The founding directors envisaged that the modern Maltese lifestyle would create a gap in the Fast-Moving Customer Goods (“FMCG”) retail business, and The Convenience Shop sought to bridge this gap by increasing its presence in several localities, operating with increased opening hours, and offering an assortment of products that suited customers’ daily needs.  2014 saw the first The Convenience Shop franchise outlet in Ghaxaq, which set off an accelerated pace of store network growth to over 30 outlets by the end of 2016, over 50 outlets by the end of 2018 and over 70 outlets by end of 2020. To date, the Group has 83 outlets across 48 carefully selected localities. 
The Group and its subsidiaries were incorporated in the second half of 2018, with the aim of consolidating The Convenience Shop business from a number of sister entities and minority shareholders to a consolidated structure under one group. This was described in detail in the Issuer’s Company Admission Document for the issue of its bonds dated 8 March 2019 published by the Issuer on 8th March 2019 and accessible on the Issuer’s website (the “Company Admission Document”). 

The Issuer has, on the 8th March 2019, issued €5,000,000 5% Unsecured Callable Bonds 2026-2029 which bonds were fully subscribed to by over 500 investors and admitted to the Prospects MTF, a multilateral trading facility operated by the MSE. The terms and conditions applicable to the bonds are disclosed in the Company Admission Document. 

The Company launched its online website in 2020 to increase its customer outreach and provide further convenience to its customers. In 2021, through the WOLT application, the Company tapped into new niches, enabling customers to order all their essentials from the comfort of their own home and have them delivered at their own convenience.  

In 2022, the Group partnered with Coop Italian Food S.p.A. for the exclusive distribution of Coop products in Malta and Gozo. Coop Italian Food is the international branch of Coop Italy, which operates the largest chain of supermarkets in Italy, and has been created to export Italian food worldwide. The Group believes that this partnership will benefit the Group and will allow it to offer its customers access to a wider range of more affordable quality products. The Group has recently also partnered with Wolt market on the procurement of goods on local and international markets.
