Nigerian Breweries shareholders have been recommended to receive bonus shares worth approximately N85 billion from the company. 

This was revealed following a regulatory filing over the weekend. The board of NB stated that in order to comply with the Corporate Affairs Commission’s directive for companies to remove unissued shares from their books, a bonus issue of one ordinary share of 50 kobo each will be issued to shareholders in the register of members at the close of business on Tuesday, December 06, 2022. 

It also stated that the bonus shares with a nominal value of N1.03 billion will be issued from the company’s share premium account, which had a balance of N77.5 billion and N84 billion as of October 31, 2022, according to the 2021 audited report and accounts. 

Investors King gathered that NB’s share price rose by N3.75 to N41.25 during last week’s trading session, according to the Nigerian Exchange Group Limited

Shareholders are expected to consider and approve an increase in the company’s share capital from N5 billion to N5.138 billion through the issuance of an additional 276.132 million ordinary shares of 50 kobo each, with such new shares ranking equally with the existing ordinary shares in the company’s share capital. 

The Extraordinary General Meeting is also expected to direct the board to amend the company’s Memorandum of Association in accordance with the resolutions, as well as to give the board the authority to carry out any other acts, deeds, or things they deem necessary to give effect to the resolutions, such as signing or authorizing the signing of all relevant documents and appointing any necessary professional adviser; and that all previous actions taken by the director be reversed.

A resolution authorising the capitalization of N1.028 billion from the share premium account for the payment of bonus shares of 2.055 billion shares to be distributed among members in the proportion of one new share for every four shares held is also expected to be approved by shareholders in accordance with Article 129 of the company’s Articles of Association.

stock - Investors King

The Nigerian Exchange plunged back into the red zone on Thursday as equity investors incurred N67 billion in losses.

The downward trend was primarily attributed to widespread sell-offs observed across key sectors, including banking, insurance, and consumer goods.

The All-Share Index closed the trading session with a decline of 0.12 percent to settle at 101,239.10 index points while the market capitalization closed lower at N55.40 trillion.

Despite a brief respite earlier in the week, the market failed to sustain its positive momentum.

Year-to-date returns moderated to 35.39 percent, reflecting the volatile nature of recent trading sessions.

Trading activities remained subdued with a 16.43 percent decrease in traded volume to 252.9 million units.

Similarly, total traded value declined by 24.54 percent to N4.94 billion, accompanied by a 15.83 percent dip in total deals to 7,248.

Market breadth leaned towards negativity, with 22 gainers overshadowed by 28 losers.

The decliners included notable companies like Daar Communications, Wema Bank, and PZ Cussons, which collectively contributed to the bearish sentiment prevalent in the banking, insurance, and consumer goods sectors.

Nigeria’s Equities Market Rebounds, Gains N165 Billion Amid Investor Optimism

Published

Nigerian Exchange Limited - Investors King

Nigeria’s equities market rebounded on Wednesday as gained N165 billion in value amid renewed optimism and strategic re-entry into undervalued stocks.

The recent downturn which plagued the market earlier in the week saw investors holding back amidst uncertainties surrounding fixed-income securities’ interest rates.

However, Wednesday’s rebound reflected a shift in sentiment as investors identified opportunities for lucrative returns in value stocks.

Key players such as BUA Cement and FBN Holdings spearheaded the market’s upward trajectory with notable gains observed across various sectors.

BUA Cement surged by 4.93% from N142.95 to N150 per share while FBN Holdings gained by 9.96% from N26.10 to N28.70 per share.

Despite these gains, Okomu Oil Palm experienced a decline with its share price dropping from N270 to N243, representing a 10% decrease.

The market’s positive performance defied earlier projections of a prolonged bearish trend. Analysts had anticipated a continuation of the subdued market activity due to prevailing uncertainties in the fixed-income segment.

Wednesday’s trading session saw increased activity, with investors exchanging 302,739,517 shares valued at N6.552 billion across 8,611 deals.

Active trading was observed in stocks such as FBN Holdings, Japaul Gold, Transcorp, Veritas, and GTCO.

The surge in the equities market reflects investors’ resilience and their confidence in the long-term prospects of Nigeria’s economy.

It also underscores the dynamic nature of the market, where strategic investments and timely interventions can yield substantial gains even in challenging times.

stock - Investors King

The Nigerian equity market continued its downward spiral as Honeywell Flour Mills and BUA Cement emerged as the top losers.

The All-Share Index (ASI) declined by 1.30 percent to settle at 101,060.67 points while the market capitalization plummeted to N55.298 trillion, representing a decline of N730 billion in just two consecutive trading days.

The bearish trend which commenced on Monday persisted as investors grappled with mounting concerns over economic uncertainties and global market dynamics.

Honeywell Flour Mills led losers with a 10 percent decline to close at N3.60 per share. Followed closely by BUA Cement’s 9.98 percent of its share value to settle at N142.95.

PZ Cussons also experienced a notable dip, posting a 9.75 percent loss to close at N27.30 per share.

The persisting sell-offs predominantly affected medium to penny stocks, with only eight equities managing to record gains amidst 43 losses.

Market analysts attributed the performance to a combination of factors, including ongoing global economic uncertainties, currency devaluation concerns, and profit-taking activities by investors.

The decline in trading activity was evident as the total volume and value of trades witnessed significant declines, reflecting a cautious approach by investors amid the prevailing market turbulence.

Despite the challenges, industry experts urge investors to remain vigilant and adopt prudent investment strategies to navigate the unpredictable market terrain, emphasizing the importance of diversification and long-term investment perspectives in mitigating risks and preserving capital in volatile market conditions.
