The Board of Directors of UAC of Nigeria Plc (UAC) and UACN Property Development Company (UPDC) had last year informed the Nigerian Stock Exchange (NSE), their shareholders and stakeholders that they were considering strategic initiatives involving recapitalisation and restructuring of UPDC.
The strategic initiatives which include recapitalisation and restructuring of UPDC ownership structure, involves UPDC’s interest in UPDC Real Estate Investment Trust (UPDC REIT) being unbundled to UPDC shareholders via the allocation of REIT units directly to shareholders of UPDC in proportion to their post-Rights Issue holdings in UPDC (UPDC Unbundling).
