Commenting on the deal, Frazer Thompson CEO said

“The USA is – by some margin – our most important export market and having a motivated and engaged importer and representative is vital. Our brand is starting to perform well and our partners, ABCK Corp. will now have the opportunity to have skin in the game. They give us access to Southern Glazer’s Wine & Spirits – the largest wine distributor in the USA - making our wines available to almost all great bars and restaurants in selected States.”

Following the grant of Options, the Company has a total of 11,032,075 options over Ordinary Shares outstanding, representing 7.8% of the Company’s issued share capital.
