The winners were drawn on the 22nd of November 2019, under the supervision of the Samoa Gambling Authority and on Friday, 29th November 2019, the winners were presented with their winnings.

A representative from Amazing Love Christian Church Sunday School at Samatau, Leilua Taulealo thanked both organisations for setting up a great initiative.

“We never thought that we would be the winners.”

To date the unitholders have continued to receive dividends from UTOS and this is made possible from investment returns including dividends from Bluesky. The unitholders received a total return of 12% for the financial period ending June 2019. 

Tevaga also congratulated and relayed his appreciation to all individuals, groups, business and organisations who have continued to invest their funds with UTOS. To date more than 3000 people have signed up to become unitholders. This is a testament to the growing trust from public to have UTOS as their investment vehicle. 

Mr Sharma also reminded all Unitholders and Bluesky Customers to take advantage of the benefits available on M-Tala following a partnership earlier this year in April commenting: “To date, U.T.O.S has received a total of $8 million dividends from its investment in Bluesky since 2011, including the $1.1 million dividend received in July, 2019. A perfect time to sign up for a UTOS account and start buying Units is now - whereby you can easily purchase Units with UTOS using Bluesky’s M-Tala from anywhere, anytime safely and securely without having to leave your home.” 

Mrs. Faletui Faamatuainu walked away with a brand new A50 Samsung Galaxy handset. The Amazing Love Christian Church Samatau Sunday School group were the winner of two return tickets to Auckland New Zealand and Mrs Leilua Taulealo accepted the award on behalf of the group. 

All unitholders who signed up during this promotion period can now purchase more units by using the M-Tala Platform which has proven convenient for those wishing to purchase extra units with UTOS. 

More rewarding promotions are planned for the 2020 year to reward our customers and inevitably give back to our community.
