Union bank - Investors King

The official delisting of Union Bank of Nigeria from the Nigerian Exchange Limited (NGX) on Monday triggered a notable N132 billion loss from the market capitalization.

NGX Regulations Limited, the regulatory arm of the Nigerian Exchange Group, confirmed the delisting in a notice to trading license holders.

Union Bank’s shares were suspended on November 14, leading to the delisting, which resulted in a market cap loss.

On its last day on the NGX Daily Official List, Union Bank had a market cap of N193.65 billion, with shares closing at N6.65 per unit.

Titan Trust Bank Limited, Union Bank’s core investor, had earlier announced plans to acquire minority shareholders’ shares, leading to the delisting.

Despite the delisting impact, the All-Share Index closed positively at the end of Monday’s trading, rising by 0.17% or 123.33 points to 71,353.81.

However, the market cap closed at N39.040 trillion, N132 billion lower than the N39.172 trillion recorded on the previous Friday.

Key performers in the market included AccessCorp, United Bank for Africa, Zenith Bank Plc, and Universal Insurance Plc.

Positive investor sentiments resulted in 32 gainers and 20 losers. Notable gainers included First Bank of Nigeria Holding, John Holt, and Tantalizer, each gaining 10%.

ETranZact led the losers’ chart with a 9.09% dip, and Unity Bank, amidst reported business combination talks with Providus Bank, landed on the losers chart with a 9.24% loss.

The volume of transactions on the NGX slightly increased to 746.67 million units from 582.77 million units traded on Friday.

Banking stocks, including AccessCorp, UBA, and Zenith Bank, were the major drivers of the day’s trend, accounting for volume and value in the market.
