Consolidated Hallmark Insurance

Consolidated Hallmark Plc has listed additional ordinary shares on the Daily Official List of the Nigerian Stock Exchange (NSE). The additional shares arose from the firm’s placement of 1,130,000,000 ordinary shares of 50 kobo each at 65 kobo per share.

With the new listing, the total issued and fully paid-up shares of Consolidated Hallmark has now increased from 7,000,000,000 to 8,130,000,000 ordinary shares of 50 kobo each.

Excerpts from the NSE X Compliance report for the trading week ended February 1, 2019, show that Niger Delta Exploration Plc, an upstream oil firm may have taken a stake in Consolidated Hallmark Insurance Plc.

According to the notice, 1,130,000,000 ordinary shares of N0.50 were acquired by Niger Delta Exploration & Production Plc at N0.65 per share. Planet capital served as the stockbroker and issuing house for the transaction.

The insurance firm was one of the few that opted to go on with raising capital, despite the National Insurance Commission (NAICOM) scrapping tier based capitalisation requirements. The scrapped rules were what led many insurance firms to raise additional capital in the bid to be at the top tier.
