    AX Real Estate p.l.c. ("the Company"), a wholly owned subsidiary of AX Group p.l.c., has announced the issuance of shares and a bond (“the Combined Offer”) consisting of:

    •            33,333,333 ordinary ‘A’ shares (subject to an over-allotment option which, if exercised, would increase the offer up to 50,000,000 ordinary ‘A’ shares)  at an  offer   price of €0.60 per share (“the Shares”); and
    •               up to €40 million in 3.5% unsecured bonds due 2032 to be issued at par (the “Bonds”).

    The Combined Offer is part of a reorganisation of the AX Group, whereby a portfolio of immovable assets with a value of €231.1 million will be consolidated under the Company. The property portfolio includes hotels, a healthcare and retirement village, and residential and commercial properties. These properties earn revenue streams via lease agreements, mainly with AX Group companies.

    The Company intends to pay a steady dividend stream to shareholders, on the basis of a dividend policy whereby the majority of its distributable profits will be distributed, subject to retaining a minimum cash balance of €1.0 million. For the initial two years the Company is committing to a guaranteed net dividend yield of 4%, with projections showing a progressive increase thereafter to 5.1% in 2025.  

    Additional information about the Combined Offer and the Company can be obtained from the prospectus which is available on the Company’s website https://axrealestate.mt/investor-information/.
