Capital Hotels opens escrow account to settle exiting shareholders



Capital Hotels has opened an escrow account to pay off shareholders exiting the firm ahead of its delisting from the Nigerian capital market.

The firm confirmed the development in a statement issued on Monday by its secretary, Alex Ugwuanyi.

The hospitality company had requested a voluntary delisting from the stock market in a bid to minimize costs and stay competitive in the industry.

Capital Hotels had offered to pay off minority shareholders N5 per share in the arrangement.

The amount was the highest price the company’s share attained in the last six months preceding the date of the Annual General Meeting (AGM) where the resolution to delist from the capital market was passed in line with Nigerian Exchange Limited (NGX) guidelines.

The cash consideration will be settled by way of electronic transfer to the respective bank accounts of Shareholders,” it added.
