The Company is formed for the purpose of Acquiring as a going concern, carrying on and developing, that portion of the well-known and old established business of Thomas Lewis and Oompany, which is confined to the Milling and Provender business carried on by them at the Soowdon Flake Flour Mills (formerly known as the City Steam Mills), Dean Street, Bangor, in the County of Carnarvon, together with all the freehold and leasehold premises belonging there- to and including the freehold Mill and premises and the leasehold Wharf or Pier and other pre- mises situate at Garth, Bangor, and used in con- nection with the said Mill, and the goodwill of the said business and the benefit of all subsisting oontracts. The Mill is exceptionally favoured as to its position, and there is no other large modern Flour Mill within a radius of 35 miles, or in the Counties of Anglesey, Carnarvon, Merioneth, and the western portion 0f Denbighshire. These I counties have a resident population of over 300,000, which is largely increased during the Summer season by the influx of visitors to the North Wales Coast. The Vendors recently caused the Milling Machinery to be entirely overhauled and exten- sively remodelled, and latest Machines of the finest British manufacture have been installed. The Mill has also been fitted throughout with an efficient and economical system of lighting by electricity. ,r. With its present equipment the Mill is cap- able of producing flour equal to any procurable, and its capacity is over 1200 sacks of Flour and 2000 sacks of Indian Meal per week. In addi- tion excellent facilities exist for a large business in sundries, such as Oatmeal, Beans, Oilcake, etc., etc. The Certificate of the Company's Auditors and 'Accountants appears below, showing the Capital Expenditure to the Vendors since January, 1905, to be E3768 10s 5d. The Assets to be acquired are as follow& Freehold Land (extending over an area of 3872 yards, more or less), and a Mill and premises, and Leasehold Land, Fore- shore, Pier, and premises at Garth, extending over three acres, together with the Mill- ing Plant, Machinery, Fix- tures, and utensils (as valued by Messrs Wood and New- land) £ 19,668 0,0 Goodwill (inclusive of the Regis- tered Trade Mark "Summit of Snowdon"), and all other rights of the Vendors relat- ing to the said Milling busi- ng £ 5332 0 0 £ 25,000 0 0 The Vendor of the said freehold premises, milling plant, machinery, and fixtures, is Mr Thomas Lewis, of Gartherwen, Bangor, afore- said, and the price to be paid to him for the said freehold Mill and premises, with the milling plant, machinery, fixtures, and utensils thereon, is fixed at £ 17,168, payable as under:— In 7168 full,, paid Ordinary Shares the Company of JB1 each L7168 0 0 In cash or debentures of the present issue, or partly in cash and partly in deben- tures of the present issue, at the option of the Com- pany £ 10,000 0 0 E17,168 0 0 The Company in exercise of the above-men- tioned option will issue such of the Debentures of the present issue as may not be subscribed for by the public to the said Thomas Lewis at par in or towards satisfaction of the said sum of ;Clo,ooo. The Vendors of the said leasehold premises and the said business and goodwill are the said firm of Thomas Lewis and Company, consisting of the said Thomas Lewis, Thomas Charles Lewis, of The Sycamores, Conway, in the County of Carnarvon, and William Howard Lewis, of Garth Road, Bangor, aforesaid (who are also the pro- moters of the Company), and the price to be paid to them is as follows, namely:— (a) For the said leasehold premises L2500, payable in 2500 fully paid up Preference Shares of the Company of JE1 each.

Mr Howard Lewis has consented to act as Managing Director for 5 years, as from the 1st January, 1909. Messrs Wood and Newland, of 42, Spring Gar- dens, Manchester, Expert Mill Valuers, who have valued Flour Mills in all parts of the United Kingdom, have issued the following:— VALUATION CERTIFICATE. ■ SPBING UABDENS, "MANCHE8TEB. "In accordance with instructions received we "have made a careful inspection of the Freehold "Land, Buildings, Motive Power, and Gearing, "Wheat-cleaning, Washing, Drying, Condition-, "ing, and Flour Milling Plant, Machinery and "Aocessory Fittings, Mill Stones, Electric Li^ht "Installation and Office Furniture, comprising "THB SNOWDON FLAKE FLOUR MILLS, situate at "Dean Street, Bangor, North Wales, also of the "Leasehold Property, comprising Land, Build- "ings, and Cargo Pier, situate at Garth, near to "and used in conjunction with the aforesaid "Mills, the property of Messrs Thomas Lewis ■and Co., Flour Millers, all aa enumerated in "Inventory furnished herewith. "And we hereby certify the value thereof (ex- clusive of Goodwill, Stock-in-Trade, Sacks, "Horses, Carts, and Steam Wagon), to be in our "opinion the sum of Nineteen thousand six hun- "dred and sixty-eight pounds, taken as a Current "Going Concern as and on the 8th day of Janu- "ary, 1908. "WOOD & NEWLAND. "15th January, 1908." The Milling business has been carried on by the Vendors in conjunction with their businesses of Tea Merchants, Grocers, Provision, Bacon Curing-, Flour and Corn, and General Merchants. which businesses will still be carried on by the Vendors under their present firm name of "Thomas Lewis and Company. I ACCOUNTANTS" CERTIFICATE. 2, BOOTH-STREET, MANCHESTER, "16th June, 1908. "We have attended at the Snowdon Flake "Flour Mills for the purpose of preparing at "trading account of the Milling Branch of "Messieurs Thomas Lewis and Company's busi- Iluem. Upon examining the books we found "that it Was impossible to prepare a trading "account showing the result of the milling busi- "neas as a separate concern. This was princi- pally due to the fact that the firm were the "proprietors of a number of Shops to which a "large amount of goods were supplied, charged "for, and included in the total sales at retail "prices. "We find that during the period from June "1907 (when the remodelling of the Flour Milling "plant was completed) to May 1908, records "covering the grinding of 27,354 centals had been "kept in the ordinary course of business, and "these we have carefully examined. They are "based upon the market price of the Wheat (in- clusive of carriage to the Mill) and Flour and "bye products (exclusive of outward carriage) for "the day, fluctuations not being taken into "account. "From these records we find that "the gross profit on an output of "Flour equal to the average for the "years 1906 and 1907 would amount "to £5,380 9 1 "To this must be added the profit "on Indian Corn and Sundries, Oats, "Beans, Rice, Linseed, etc., etc. It "has not been possible to ascertain "the actual amount, but Mr W. "Howard Lewis, after careful calcu- lations, considers that the average "profit on these may be estimated "at not less than 21/1 per cental "(gross). We have ascertained from "the books the average amounts pur- Chased for the years 1906 and 1907, "and accepting Mr Lewis' estimate, "we find the gross profit would be 1,324 7 6 £ 6,704 16 7 "Deduct Expenditure:- "(a) Average amount "as shown by the books "for 1906 and 1907 to "have been expended on "Wages, Coal, Repairs, "Lighting, Rates and "Taxes, Selling, etc. (but "omitting Firo Insurance "and Sack loss) £5,209 7 2 "(b) Amount provided "for loss on Sacks and Fire Insurance. 730 0 0 3,939 7 2 r 2,765 9 5 "Add estimated Rents "and Dues receivable ».. 120 0 0 "Nett Annual Profit £2,885 9 5 "We find from the books that sinoe Januwy, "1905, there has been expended in remodelling "the Milling Plant a sum of E3,284 9s. 6d. and "on a new Well, special expenditure on the "premises and the Installation of Electric Light "the sum of E484 0b. lid., making a total "Capital Expenditure of E3,768 10s. 5d. within "the last three-and-a-half years. BAYLEY, WOOD and CO." The above Certificate is baaed on the working of the Mill for the years 1906 and 1907, during which period the business was largely interfered with and disorganised by the process of re- modelling and other causes. The remodelling has now been completed, and the Directors oon- fidently anticipate a great increase in the volume of business. The Vendors take one half ( £ 12,500) of the total purchase price in Oreunary biiaree, upon which no dividend will be paid m aaiy year until a dividend of '5 per oent. has been paid on the Preterence Shares, tor that year, and such sum as may have been decided upon by the Directors has been set aside for the iormation of a Reserve Fund. The Company will pay all preliminary ex- penses, and tne estimated amount thereof is 2500. The minimum subscription upon which the directors may proceed to allotment is 6,000 of the shares now offered to the public. Applications for Debentures and Shares should be made upon the forms accompanying the full prospectus and sent to the Company's Bankers, together with a remittance for the amount of the deposit. Where no allotment is made the deposit will be returned in full, and where the number of Debentures or Shares allotted is leas than that applied for, the balance of the deposit will be applied towards the remaining payments. Failure to pay any future instalments when due on the Shares allotted will render previous .pay- ments liable to forfeiture. A copy of the Com- pany's Memorandum of Association is printed in the fold of, and forms part of the prospectus. Copies of the Memorandum and Articles of Association of the Company and of the Agree- ments mentioned in the prospectus can be seen at the Office of the Solicitors to the Company between the hours of 11 and 4 on the days upon which the subscription lists are open. Prospectuses and forms of application can be obtained at the Offioo of the Company or from its Bankers. The Company will pay a Brokerage of 3d per share on all Shares, and 1 per cent. on Debentures allotted on application forms bearing a Broker's Stamp and will pay to other agents through whom approved applications aro re- ceived a commission of 3d. per share and 1 per cent for Debentures. i- PUBLIC HALL, COLWYN BAY.
