Tony Elumelu

Tony Elumelu, Relatives Increase Stake in UBA

In eight different filings with the Nigerian Stock Exchange (NSE), the Board Chairman, UBA, Tony Elumelu and relatives increased stake in United Bank for Africa (UBA) in a move that suggested confidence in the lender’s future and an opportunity to increase Elumelu family’s stake in one of Africa’s largest banks.

In one of the filings, Awele Elumelu, one of the relatives purchased 156,097 shares at N5.9999 per share on Tuesday, September 22, 2020 in Lagos.

This was followed by Nneka Elumelu and Ogechukwu Elumelu, relatives of the Chairman that acquires 106,464 shares and 127,673 shares at N6.0 per share per unit on the same day in Lagos.

Ogechukwu Elumelu added 127,219 shares and another 106,428 shares at N6.0 per share to take her total purchases to 361,323 shares.

Onyinye Elumelu bought 107,250 shares at N6.0 per share while Toby Onyemaechi Elumelu purchased UBA shares in two transactions, 7,460 shares and 7,452 shares at N6.0 per share.

Tony O. Elumelu, CON, the Board Chairman of UBA, purchased 4,817,855 shares at N5.9999 per share.

Likely scenario for an all out purchases, the family may want to capitalise on the low stock price given the current weak stock market outlook or there is an underground deal or detail they are privy to as witnessed during access bank Zambian acquisition a few months back.

The move may also be a gift to relatives from one of Africa’s richest men.
