C&I Leasing’s N5bn commercial paper oversubscribed by 100%

C&I Leasing, a leasing and business services conglomerate in Nigeria, has announced the successful conclusion of its third Commercial Paper (CP) series.

The latest N5 billion issuance was oversubscribed by 100 percent, demonstrating strong investor confidence in the company, according to a statement.

Lenin Ugoji, group managing director, said in the statement that the 200 percent subscription for the company’s CP issuance was rooted largely in improved operational efficiency.

“This success can be attributed to enhanced operational efficiency, heightened business transparency, and robust foreign exchange gains, resulting in a notable 9 percent increase in headline revenues, despite challenging economic conditions,” he said.
