By Published On: June 14th, 2022Categories: Corporate announcement

Shareholders are referred to the cautionary announcement dated 15 December 2021 issued by the CEC Africa Investments Limited (“CECA” or the “Company”) informing the market of the developments in Nigeria in relation to Abuja Electricity Distribution Plc (“AEDC”). Shareholders are aware that in December 2021 the Bureau of Public Enterprise (“BPE”) who holds shares in AEDC, appointed an interim Board of Directors and management team to stabilize the operations of AEDC that were being affected by the dispute between the shareholders of KANN Utility Limited (“KANN”).

In response to the alleged takeover of the operations of AEDC, KANN had instituted a suit against the BPE and other government agencies seeking a court ordered restraint against interference with the operations at AEDC. Subsequently, the parties have agreed to settle the matter out of court and on 16th February 2022, the Court ordered parties to explore settlement out of court. A report on the out of court settlement was pushed forward from 25th April 2022 to 16th June 2022.

CECA will inform the public of further developments in the matter as they become known. Accordingly, shareholders are advised to exercise caution when dealing in the Company’s shares until a full announcement is made.
