The Ghana Stock Exchange (GSE) has approved the delisting of a major consumer goods company, PZ Cussons Ghana from the stock market, following the review of offer documents to initiate the process.

In October 2019, PZ Cussons announced its intention to delist from the stock market following the unanimous approval of a resolution seeking to undertake the Offer and to De-List the Company from the GSE.

According to PZ Cussons Ghana, the proposed de-Listing is in line with the company’s plans to achieve operational efficiency, by providing management of the company more time and resources to focus on running and expanding the business, its distribution network and reach, thereby ensuring consumer satisfaction.

In view of the approval, Ghana Web has reported that PZ Cussons has announced its tender offer to existing Qualifying Shareholders of the company to purchase fully the entire shareholding of each Qualifying Shareholder.

The Offer is priced at GHc 0.45 per PZ Cussons Share representing a 15.4 per cent premium above the market price of GHS 0.39, which is the higher of the average 12-week market price and the market price on the annual general meeting date.
