The board of Greif Nigeria Plc has agreed to delist shares of the company from the Nigerian Stock Exchange (NSE) next year.
However, to make this effective, the board of directors is calling for an Extra-Ordinary Meeting (EGM) to be held on January 23, 2020 to seek approval of the company’s shareholders.
Also, at the EGM, the board wants the authorisation of the investors to sell the company’s properties in Lagos; the one at its present head office and another property around the area.
A notice from Greif Nigeria said the board took the decisions to exit the stock exchange and offload the buildings at a meeting held on Thursday, December 12, 2019 in Lagos.
