Addressing shareholders at the EGM, Chuka Mordi, chief executive officer, Ellah Lakes, explained that the additional capital would be raised either through debt or equity or a combination of both.

According to him, the proposed fresh capital injection is in line with the company’s ambitious growth plan, which requires significant capital investments in the medium term.

Mordi said: “As we mentioned during our Facts behind Listing of 1.88 billion ordinary shares in June 2019, we would be seeking to raise additional capital for the company and now we have received approval from our shareholders to increase our authorised share capital to N1.5 billion. This provides us with the flexibility to enhance our capital structure, while we pursue our aggressive growth plan in the medium term and ensure we deliver value to our shareholders.”
