Fast food giant, Simbisa Brands Ltd., the firm that controls high-profile restaurant chains across African markets, spurred its planned VFEX listing, notifying investors in a comprehensive roadmap that the deal may be through by December 2, 2022.

Simbisa, which has risen from its Zimbabwean roots to establish a formidable African network, executes its strategy through a string of high-end hospitality brands that include the flagship Chicken Inn, Pizza Inn, Creamy Inn and Bakers Inn, one of the country’s biggest bread producers.

It also holds the franchises for quick service restaurant chain; Rocomamas, Nandos and Steers, along with Galito

In a statement that disclosed Simbisa’s rationale to switch from the ZSE, the firm’s board rallied shareholders to give an emphatic nod to the transaction at an extraordinary general meeting scheduled for November 18, 2022.

Geregu Power PLC was incorporated in November 2006 as one of the unbundled companies from the now-defunct Power Holding Company of Nigeria (PHCN). The Company began operations in February 2007 to generate electric power supply to the National Grid managed by the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN).

Amperion Power owns 99.9 per cent of the company. Calvados holding (owned by Femi Otedola) owns 95 per cent of Amperion Power while Shangai Power owns five per cent.

Geregu Power listed 2.5 billion ordinary shares of 50 kobos each at a share price of N100 per share, valuing the company at about N250 billion on the first day. However, amid high investors demand, Geregu Power’s stock gained 10 per cent (N10) on its first trading day on the NGX to close at N110 per share from N100 per share.

The gain pushed its market capitalisation to N275 billion from the N250 billion it was listed. The company traded 8.5 million volume of shares at N935 million in one day as its listing further boosted liquidity in the Nigerian capital market.
