Titan Bank, core shareholder in Union bank, acquisition of the minority shareholding has led to the application of Union Bank of Nigeria Plc to delist from the Nigeria Stock Market. In May, 2023, Union Bank received an offer from its core shareholder, Titan Trust Bank Limited, to acquire the shares of all minority shareholders in Union Bank after the completion of core investors’ sale of a majority shareholding to Titan Trust Bank Limited, a subsidiary of TGI Group. This development was implemented by way of a scheme of arrangement between the bank and the bank’s shareholders (the minority shareholders), by Section 715 of the Companies and Allied Matters Act 2020 (as amended). Union Bank of Nigeria has notified all esteemed stakeholders that the Bank is finalising the process of obtaining approval to delist the Bank’s shares from NGX, upon which shareholders of the Bank will receive a Scheme Consideration of N7.70 per share.
Commenting on this development, Mudassir Amray, CEO of Union Bank of Nigeria said: “This move is an effort to attract larger private investments to reconsolidate our position as one of the top pioneer Banks in Nigeria. We remain committed to deliver value to our customers, employees and shareholders through superior solutions. We appreciate the support of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Securities Exchange Commission, Nigerian Exchange Group (NGX) and every other agency and parastatal that were instrumental to achieving this.”
