ABRIDGED PROSPECTUS. r THIS Company is formed for the purposes of ff" i e^ecting at the Beaufort Warehouses, North Dock, Swansea, a First Class Flour Mill of the most modern description, of acquiring and taking over as a going concern the business of Mr Wm. Weaver, of the City Mills, Worcester, Miller, Corn and Grain Merchant, and of carrying on, and developing the business of Millers, Corn, Grain and Seed Merchants and other businesses and undertakings auxiliary thereto and for other objects as set forth in the Memorandum of Association of the Company. 'uuui Flour Milling Companies established in Cardiff, Gloucester, Bristol, and the West of England, divide large dividends up to 17 per cent., after carrying considerable amounts to Reserve Funds, and in some cases their shares realise double their original prices. The existing services of steamers and vessels between Swansea and various grain-exporting Countries, and the fact that shipowners are at all times ready to make considerable allowances for the privilege of coming to a loading port to discharge, together with other advantages, such as moderate dock charges, cheap fuel, &c., point to Swansea as one of the best spots in the Kingdom at which to establish Flour and Corn Mills and other Manufacturing Industries. As a centre for distribution Swansea has the natural facilities of a seaport town as well as the service of three of the leading railways and other minor railways and is certainly the natural centre for the whole of the western portion of South Wales. Although Swansea and the surrounding districts have a very large and increasing population, which can well support a Flour Mill of very large capacity, there is at present no large modern Flour Mill in the South Wales District, West of Cardiff, and almost the whole of the Flour and Offals arising from Milling are supplied from a distance, at considerable cost of trans- port, which can be saved by local manufacture. A most eligible leasehold site, upon which buildings of a commodious and extensive character have been already erected, and have complete Railway and Dock accommodation, has been secured upon exceptionally advantageous terms at the Beaufort;Warehouses North Dock, Swansea. It is proposed to erect upon this site and to have ready for work early in April next. a First-Class Flour Mill of the most modern description, with milline machinery of advanced type capable of an immediate weekly output of 3,000 sacks, and of such a nature as to admit of additional machinery being introduced when a larger output is required. The Mill will also be provided with an electric light installation, which will minimise the risk of fire and with a complete system of sprinklers for the automatic extinction of fire. The buildings are sufficiently large to accommodate a plant capable of producing 10,000 sacks per week, with anlple space for storage and for carrying on the corn and gram trade. It has alse been arranged to purchase from Mr. Wm. Weaver the leasehold premises known as "TheCitv Flour Mills," Worcester, together with the machinery and plant therein, the goodwill of the business carried on thereat, and the stock-in-trade and book debts ppertaining to such business as on the 31st day of March next. This Mill is situate on the canal, has connection with road and railway, and is in the centre of a district in which some of the finest English wheat is grown. Messrs. Tribe, Clarke, Cawker and Co., chartered accountants, have inspected Mr Weaver's books, and their report has satisfied the Directors that the business is an increasing and successful one. The purchase money for the lease, machinery, good- will and plant is 27,000, for the stock-in-trade the cost price, and for the book debts the full amount less trade discount, subject to Mr Weaver guaranteeing them to realise 20s. in the £ within four months. The Vendor has agreed to take £ 20,000 (including the purchase money of the Worcester business) in ordinary sharm. The vendor guarantees that the profits on the Worcester branch of the Company's business for the first three years shall average 92, 000 a year, and it is believed that no larger sum than £20,000 (including Eranch86 m°ney) wil1 be required to carry on this The Directors have also secured the services of Mr Weaver as Managing Director, upon terms which thpy consider -vill be advantageous to the Company. The Directors believe that the business in Swansea and Worcester can be profitably worked together, and that the local advantages available at Swansea, the comparative smallness of the capital required, and the successful character of the Worcester business will enable them to pay dividends equalling, if not exceeding, those declared by other similar companies. The only agreement entered into is one between the said WILLIAM WEAVER of the one part and GARNAUT CAWKEB on behalf of the Company oftfie other part, and dated the 31st day of December, No promotion money or intermediate profit of any kind has been charged or will be paid. Copies of the Memorandum and Articles of Associ- mentioned, and the rlraft tfthe'Jmp^S'w of'"™ atthe0ffi6e8 Applications for Shares should be lodged with the Bankers of the Company, or the Secretary of the Company, at Temple-street, Swansea, together with the amount payable on application. If no allotment be made the deposit will be returned without I deduction, but if only a part of the amount applied for I is allotted the surplus amount paid on deposit will be appropriated towards the sum due on allotment I Prospectuses, with forms of application, can be H obtained at the Offices of the Company, from the | Solicitors, and from the Bankers of the Company.
