The Nigerian Stock Exchange (NSE) on Thursday confirmed that it has granted a listing waiver to Airtel Africa Plc despite not meeting the minimum requirement of 300 shareholders.

Airtel Africa, the parent company of Airtel Nigeria, will be listing through a cross border secondary listing at N363 per share on Friday, following an Initial Public Offering by way of book building, a circular from NSE said.

Having two big telecommunications companies in our market is a testament to the Exchange’s commitment to building a dynamic and inclusive market and creating channels for sustainable investment.

“These listings create telecoms and technology asset class for investors and provide opportunities for a wider group of Nigerians to be part of the Nigerian telecom growth story,” NSE said.
