Billionaire Femi Otedola-owned energy company, Geregu Power has finally been listed on the Nigerian Exchange Limited (NGX) today.

The company listed 2.5bn shares at N100 a unit on the Main Board of the Nigerian Exchange (NGX) on Wednesday, October 5, 2022.  Geregu is the first GenCo to be listed on the NGX Main Board, a segment for well-established companies with demonstrable records of accomplishments.

Investors King reported on Monday that the company planned to list on the stock exchange today.

Geregu entered the Exchange with a market capitalisation of N250 billion and with an international securities identification number (ISIN) – NGGEREGU0000.  

Geregu Power, a leading power generation company (GenCo) in Nigeria, was listed under the utilities sector and Electric Power Generation sub-sector of NGX, with the trading symbol, GEREGU.

The listing has now added N250 billion to the liquidity of the Nigerian Exchange Limited and provides more opportunities for wealth creation.

Commenting on the listing, the Chairman, Board of Directors, Mr. Femi Otedola, CON, said “the listing of the company was the actualization of a vision to bring world-class standards in governance sustainability, and business processes to the Company and the Nigerian electricity sector.” He added that “listing on the Main Board of the Exchange will ensure that the long-term growth of the company is assured and its benefits will be passed on to our esteemed shareholders”. Nigerian Exchange Limited continues to evolve in order to remain an attractive destination for issuers, meet the needs of our valued stakeholders and achieve the highest level of competitiveness.

On his part, Chairman, NGX, Mr. Abubakar Mahmood SAN, OON, said, “We are particularly pleased that Geregu Power has joined the prestigious group of companies listed on our Main Board, which will differentiate it as a professionally run power company with high standards, having met NGX’s listing criteria.

“A Main Board listing is a sign of commitment to strong corporate governance, excellence, professionalism, efficiency in service delivery, and providing increased returns to shareholders. It is our expectation that the Geregu Power listing will encourage other power generation and distribution companies to list their shares on the Exchange, thereby opening the sector up to cheaper, long-term capital that will boost infrastructural development and value creation.”

Mr. Temi Popoola, the Chief Executive Officer, NGX, highlighted the significance of the listing to the entire nation.

He said, “Today’s listing is a promising development in the country’s power sector and we are delighted to welcome Geregu Power Plc to the Exchange. Having Geregu listed in our market is proof of NGX’s commitment to building a robust and inclusive market and creating avenues for sustainable investment.

“This listing will enhance liquidity for Geregu, increase its visibility among global investors, elevate its value and boost transparency, as our marketplace is a sterling platform for raising capital and enabling sustainable growth for national development. As a listing platform of choice, we are committed to working with companies at various stages of growth to explore the different opportunities in the capital market to meet their business objectives.”
