Nestlé S.A. Switzerland Increased Stake in Nestle Nigeria Plc to 66.3%

Despite growing economic uncertainties amid a decline in economic productivity, Nestlé S.A, Switzerland, the parent company of Nestlé Nigeria Plc, has continued to up its ownership percentage in Nestle Nigeria.

Nestlé S.A, Switzerland now owned 66.3 percent of the Nigerian subsidiary.

This was after the company purchased additional shares of 229,697 units in Nestle Nigeria to bring the company’s total purchase from August 20 to date to 977,744 units.

Nestlé S.A has now spent a total sum of N1.17 billion to buy shares in three transactions in its Nigerian subsidiary in 22 days.

A break down of the transactions revealed that the purchase consideration for the 229,697 additional units of Nestlé Nigeria shares at an average price of N1,249.65 per unit is put at N287 million.

Experts said Nigerian shareholders were willing to sell because of the ongoing economic hardships being witnessed in the country.

Stock Market to Benefit From Low Valuations – Experts

Investment experts have said the Nigerian Stock Exchange would benefit from low stock valuations despite the present mixed performance following sell pressure in banking stocks.

The experts hinged their analysis on the usual investors’ search for undervalued yields with strong fundamentals.

The NSE market capitalisation expanded by N14 billion last week but the All Share Index declined by 0.08 percent 25,572.57 basis points, highlighting the mixed performance of the Exchange amid growing economic uncertainties.

The analysts at Cordros Capital, in the review of the week performance, said the bourse could see a positive performance in the long run over compelling valuations while advising investors to exercise cautions when buying given current uncertainties.

They stated: “In the absence of a positive catalyst, and given the still uninspiring macro story, we guide investors to trade cautiously in the short term.

“However, we expect the market might benefit over the longer term on compelling valuations and as investors seek alpha-yielding opportunities in the face of negative real returns in the fixed income market.”

Experts at Afrinvest Securities, another Lagos-based investment banking company, said the new week would see investors taking profit, a situation they said could weigh on the Exchange and plunge stock value.
