Eden Finance plc - Prospectus dated May 2010

The Company

Eden Finance plc, a fully owned subsidiary of Eden Leisure Group Ltd., was set up and established to act as the finance company for the Eden Leisure Group of Companies.

Eden Leisure Group Ltd. is the parent company of the Eden Leisure Group. It traces its origins back to 1966 with the setting up of Sunny Resorts Ltd. This company operated the Eden Rock hotel, a three-star property on the Sliema front that was sold in 1993. In 1975, Sunny Resorts Ltd developed a 27-room hotel in St. George’s Bay in St. Julian’s which was called Eden Beach Aparthotel. The promoters of Sunny Resorts Ltd, the De Cesare family, established a new company, Eden Hotels Ltd, through which they further developed the original investment in St. George’s Bay by the acquisition of additional land for the development of the Eden Beach Hotel (a 250-bed hotel) and Styx discotheque, which were operational in 1980.

The year 1980 was a major turning point in the strategic direction of Eden Hotels Ltd when Ian and Kevin De Cesare took over the company. The company has since then diversified into the entertainment industry. Eden Hotels Ltd changed its name to Eden Leisure Group Ltd in 1993. The Group continued its expansion through strategic alliances with well-known Maltese business partners. Nowadays the Eden Leisure Group, mainly owns and operates: (i) the radio station 89.7 Bay, (ii) various Cinemas, (iii) the Eden SuperBowl, (iv) Cynergi Health & Fitness Club, (v) InterContinental Malta and a 24-hour 300 bay car park (both operated by InterContinental Hotels Corporation), (vi) Bay Arena, (vii) Club Numero Uno, (viii) Axis Discotheque and (ix) Beauty Studio.
