In fact, the Malta Corporate Bond In- dex closed 2022 with a decline of 4.7% while the Malta Government Stock market registered a decline of 19.7%. But despite several corporate bonds dropping below their par value in the last six months of the year, nearly all bond issues were quickly oversub- scribed. e bond offers in 2022 included new offerings from existing issuers as well new offerings from other companies who approached the market for the first time.

THE Malta Gaming Authority carried out 16 compliance audits and 114 desktop re- views over the January-June 2022 period, accompanied by an additional seven an- ti-money laundering (AML) compliance examinations initiated behalf of the FIAU. Additionally, the MGA issued a warning, cancelled a licence, as well as suspended another authorised entity, following infor- mation which emerged from compliance audits, compliance reviews and formal investigations. A total of seven adminis- trative penalties as well as two regulatory settlements, with a collective total finan- cial penalty of €85,000. Enforcement measures were also issued by the FIAU to an additional four licen- sees, ranging from written reprimands to administrative penalties, with an empha- sis on remediation measures, based on the breaches identified during examinations carried out in previous years, including by the MGA. In total, these amounted to just over €386,567.
