Neveah registers commercial paper issuance with FMDQ
NEVEAH Limited, a commodities trading company that deals in the export of solid minerals and agricultural products, has registered N10 billion Commercial Paper issuance with the FMDQ Securities Exchange Limited.
The commercial paper programme is in line with the company’s strategic objective to evolve into a leading dealer and exporter of world-class quality commodities to its international clients, while maintaining the highest standards of corporate governance, in order to retain investor confidence.
According to the Chief Executive Officer, Ibidapo Lawal, “the programme registration represents a milestone in Neveah Limited’s strategic transformation plan. This opportunity to access an alternative source of funding will help to meet our short-term working capital needs.”
The Head, Capital Markets and Advisory at United Capital, Babatunde Ajayi, stated: “United Capital is delighted to act as sponsor and sole arranger to the Programme.
Neveah Limited is a registered exporter of agro-commodities and minerals with the Nigerian Export Promotion Council (NEPC) and the company was able to attain an investment-grade rating from Data Pro, enabling its first entry into the Capital Markets.
“The approved CP Programme will enable Neveah to tap the Nigerian debt capital markets. Given the numerous opportunities in the agro-commodities and mineral space, United Capital is committed to the growth of the industry which is largely underdeveloped partially due to access to financing.”
