Recall that in 2005, Transcorp emerged the core investors in the privatization of the hotel asset, which later became Transcorp Hotels Plc in 201 4 following a decision to make this iconic asset available to the investing public as shareholders. The company later extended its reach to Calabar operating as Transcorp Hotels Calabar and further acquired strategic properties in Lagos and Port Harcourt where it intends to develop new hotels. In 2018, Transcorp Hotels completed a USD$100m upgrade of the iconic and multi-award winning Transcorp Hilton Abuja, which was a key factor that led to the final discharge of the company by the BPE from further post-privatization obligations.
