Following an application to the Nigerian Stock Exchange (NSE) on the voluntary delisting of 11 Plc (formerly known as Mobil Oil Nigeria Plc), the NSE has approved the delisting application.
According to the NSE, the application was ratified subject to 11 Plc’s evidence of opening an escrow account in the registrar’s name and evidence that the shareholders who have accepted to exit have been paid.
The company had opened an escrow account with GTL Registrars and Data Solutions Limited and provided sufficient funds to shareholders, who as of March 15, 2021, have accepted the ‘Exit Consideration’ of N213.90 per share. The Exit Consideration is based on the highest price of N213.90 at which 11 Plc traded in the last 6 months preceding the date of the Annual General Meeting, where the decision to delist was passed in line with NSE guidelines.
The oil firm noted that the delisting process will enable it to strategize for better performance, minimize costs and stay competitive within the industry.
What you should know:
- 11 Plc is a Nigerian-based petroleum products marketer which got listed on the Nigerian Stock Exchange in 1978. This implies that the firm has spent about 43 years on the Exchange.
