Issuer Need

Today Malta has the largest ship registry in Europe, and the sixth largest world-wide. Notwithstanding this, only a handful of shipping companies are beneficially owned, financed, managed and commercially operated in and through Malta. The operational and commercial knowledge required to successfully manage tanker vessel fleets in Malta has increased and the Directors, in line with trends in other countries over recent years, have identified the bond market as the adequate tool for the financing of the purchasing of vessels. The directors were intentioned to acquire two additional commercial vessels in order to exploit opportunities in the international time charter market, as well as compliment and strengthen the operations of the Group, principally bunkering and the transportation of petroleum products.


Calamatta Cuschieri was approached by Endo Finance Plc to explore the optimal funding options to bring the Group’s vision in effect.  The €13,500,000 fully subscribed bond enabled the Group to increase its commercial vessels and expand its operations further.
