Titan Trust Offers Union Bank Shareholders N7/Share
Titan Trust Bank Limited has made an offer of N7 per ordinary share to buy non-controlling interest or minority shareholders of Union Bank of Nigeria Plc, according to a regulatory filing on Monday.
Union Bank of Nigeria Plc told the Nigerian Exchange Limited and other stakeholders that Titan Trust Bank Limited has notified the Bank of a mandatory takeover offer that will be made to shareholders of Union Bank.
This is coming after its core investors transferred ownership interest to Titan Trust Bank, a smaller financial service company in the Nigerian market. This means that Titan Trust Bank will be controlling the whole of Union Bank of Nigeria if minority owners sell their holdings.
According to the offer detail, the mandatory takeover offer will be for 1,927,532,558 ordinary shares in Union Bank of Nigeria Plc, representing 6.59% of its outstanding shares. READ:Titan Trust Bank Completes Takeover of Union Bank
