Dematerialization of Outstanding Share Certificates

Dear Valued Client,

RE: Dematerialization of Outstanding Share Certificates

We refer to the above subject matter.

The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) in the course of moving the Nigerian Capital Market forward had set up a Market Committee to review strategies and processes that would enhance operational efficiency, transparency and elimination of risk of loss and theft of share certificates. The Committee identified a full “Dematerialization of Share Certificates” as one of the grey areas which needs to be addressed as a matter of urgency. In view of the above, SEC has mandated all Registrars of Companies to update the register of their respective members and transfer all unverified/outstanding share certificates to the Central Securities Clearing Systems (CSCS).
