The Nigerian Stock Exchange (NSE) has suspended trading in the shares of six companies listed on its trading platform.

The companies suspended are FTN Cocoa Processors, Medview Airline, Niger Insurance, R.T. Briscoe (Nigeria), Union Dicon Salt and Capital Oil.

As a result of this, the shareholders of the affected firms will not be able to trade the stocks of the companies at the exchange until the embargo is lifted by the NSE.

A notice to stockbrokers on Tuesday, September 1, 2020, explained that the organisations were suspended from trading their equities on the exchange because they failed to adhere to the listing rules.

Their suspension was in pursuant to Rule 3.1, Rules for Filing of Accounts and Treatment of Default Filing, Rulebook of the exchange also known as the issuers’ rules or default filing rules.

NSE stated that “the shares of the six under listed companies have been suspended from trading via the facilities of the exchange, effective today, Tuesday, September 1, 2020, having failed to file their audited financial statement for the year ended December 31, 2019.

“FTN Cocoa Processors Plc, Medview Airline Plc, Niger Insurance Plc, R.T. Briscoe (Nigeria) Plc, Union Dicon Salt Plc and Capital Oil Plc.”

“In accordance with the rules set forth above, the suspension of trading in the shares of the above-listed companies will only be lifted upon the submission of the relevant accounts and provided the exchange is satisfied that the accounts comply with all applicable rules of the exchange.”
