The developers of Tigné Point and Manoel Island has appointed Jefferies International Limited as financial adviser for the purposes of identifying and selecting a suitable strategic partner to financially support the development of Manoel Island.

MIDI plc had engaged PwC Global’s Strategy& as a consultant for the Manoel Island project together with Foster + Partners to draw up a conceptual masterplan for this project, to finally prepare a business and costing plan for the project.

The company had been searching for third parties willing to express an interest in the 99-year concession.

MaltaToday had reported that a prominent Maltese consortium made an offer for €110 million, as well as an additional €23 million that MIDI has yet to pay the Maltese government – but the offer was was turned down when the MIDI owners informed the interested buyer they would alter the asking price, reportedly at €145 million.

MIDI denied the price tag, making the announcement in a company statement to avoid the establishment of a false market in the company’s securities.

Until six years ago, MIDI was considering turning Fort Manoel into a 55-suite boutique hotel, and turn the former military parade ground into a concert venue. Plans also included a ‘marina village’ of low-rise residential units, projected to sell at roughly the same price as Tigné Point’s more expensive apartments.
