Mobil Service Station

In a bid to complete its ongoing delisting process and settle shareholders accordingly, 11 Plc, formerly Mobil, has opened an escrow account with Greenwich 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 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 resolution to delist was passed in line with the Nigerian Stock Exchange guidelines.

The company said, “Further to the application made to The Exchange by 11 Plc on the Voluntary Delisting of the Company from The Exchange as recommended by the Board of Directors, the Exchange approved the delisting application subject to 11 plc’s evidence of opening an escrow account in the Registrar’s name and evidence that shareholders who have accepted to exit have been paid.

11 Plc attributed the decision to delist from NSE to the need to strategise for better performance, minimise costs, and stay competitive within its industry.

On the escrow account, it said “the consideration accruing to shareholders of 11 plc that elect to accept the Exit Consideration has been computed as of March 15, 2021. The cash consideration will be settled by way of electronic transfer to the respective bank accounts of Shareholders and it is expected to be completed on or before April 16, 2021.
