At the last Annual General Meeting of Mayberry Investments, stockholders authorized the Board to re-organize Mayberry West Indies Limited (MWIL) to enhance shareholder value and to carry out such transaction or series of transactions as the Board deems fit.
Arising from a Mayberry Investments Board meeting held on Friday, December 29, 2017 a dividend in specie was declared of 10% of the Net Book value of MWIL.
