UNION Bank has announced that the subscription period for its N50 billion Rights Issue will commence on Wednesday, September 20 and close on Monday, October 30, 2017.

Union Bank is set to offer 12.1 billion ordinary shares of 50 kobo each, which will be available at N4.10 per share, on the basis of five new shares for every seven shares held as at August 21, 2017.
