The Board of MRS Oil Nigeria Plc will, at the company’s Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM), request shareholders’ endorsement to voluntarily delist from the Nigerian Exchange Limited (NGX).

    The decision to exit from the NGX was contained in the notice of an Extraordinary General Meeting to be held in Lagos on May 21, 2024.

    The company will also seek shareholders’ approval for its Memorandum and Articles of Association (MemArts) to be modified to allow for a share buyback and share capital reduction.

    This will be carried out in accordance with applicable laws and regulations at the discretion of the board.

    It will also seek an understanding that following the conclusion of voluntary delisting and while the company remains public, the board is empowered to facilitate the admission of its shares on the NASD OTC Securities Exchange.

    This action ensures compliance with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC)’s rules on trading in unlisted securities.
