It has been proposed that 11 ordinary shares of 50 Kobo each in DSR, credited as fully paid-up shares would go for every 12 NASCON shares of 50 Kobo each, which totals 2,428,651,847 new ordinary shares of DSR.

Similarly, 14 ordinary shares of 50 Kobo each in DSR, credited as fully paid-up shares would translate into One ordinary share of N1.00 Kobo each in DRL share, which totals 2,775,792,508 new ordinary shares of DSR.

“The Terms and Conditions of the Merger as agreed by the parties will be presented to the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and subsequently the Company’s shareholders at the Court-Ordered Meeting,” the filing stated.

The statement further read: “The Company will now proceed to apply to the SEC for the approval of the Scheme, and subject to the approval of the SEC, will apply to the Federal High Court for an Order to convene a meeting of its Shareholders to consider the Scheme.

“Shareholders of the Company are advised to exercise caution when dealing with the shares of the Company until a further announcement is made.”
