Vending Technologies Establishes Finance Company

Vending Technologies Establishes Finance Company to Fund Continuing Growth of VendSmart

Cancels Proposed Rights Issue

AUCKLAND, 15 November 2001 – Smart vending company, Vending Technologies Ltd (NZSE:VTL), has established a finance company to support the continuing growth of its VendSmart licensing programme in New Zealand and Australia.
Nathans Finance NZ Limited, a fully owned subsidiary of VTL, is issuing a prospectus to raise a maximum of $10 million by the issue of secured debenture stock. The minimum investment is $1,000 for fixed terms ranging from three months to five years, at varying fixed interest rates.
The Investment Statement and Prospectus have been approved by the Companies Office, with a registration date of 15 November 2001. Perpetual Trust Limited have been appointed as trustees.
VTL also confirmed that it has cancelled a proposed one for ten rights issue, which it had postponed in the wake of the September terrorist attacks.

“VTL’s growth strategy comprises the purchase of food and drink vending equipment and the installation of its own proprietary control technology into the machines; coupled with the continued roll-out of the VendSmart licensing programme, in which those machines are licensed to small scale third party operators,” says VTL Chairman Dr. Richard Janes.
“The VendSmart licensing programme has recently confirmed its potential to enhance revenue and reduce VTL costs. At the same time it has created a profitable financing opportunity in supporting operators who require additional funds to finance growth in their underlying business. It will meet a clear demand from our expanding machine licensing activities and will form an integral part of the VTL Group strategy.”
