On April 30, 2019, 37.8 million of Dangote Flour Mills’ shares changed ownership.  

This is a record level for the firm since December 14, 2015, when 63.4 million shares were negotiated. It is also the first time since 2014 that the share is recording 11 straight days up with an average of 8.4% increase daily.

In those eleven days, the firm’s market capitalisation went 124% up to NGN94 billion for NGN18.8 of the share. This is the highest price ever reached.

This performance on the Nigerian Stock exchange is achieved despite the firm’s flat financial performances in 2018 and the mixed outlooks till 2020. The dynamic can therefore only be related to the attractive offer made by Singaporean agribusiness Olam that made a full acquisition offer for NGN130 billion ($362 million at the official exchange rate).
