C & I Leasing Plc has set an ambitious revenue target of N66.34 billion which is expected to be actualised by 2023. This comes as the company is currently trying to raise about N3 billion through a rights issue. The money will facilitate the company’s expansion efforts.

Recall that last year, the company’s board approved a N20 billion debt issuance programme, the first leg of which (a N7 billion issuance) was oversubscribed by 33%. The latest N3.2 billion rights issue is a part of that 5-year fixed-rate senior secured bond.

It should be noted that the projected N66.34 billion revenue by 2023 is said to be based on a Compound Annual Growth Rate of 18.48%
