Equity Assurance Plc (EA) would this week open its N7.0 billion hybrid offer. Ibidolapo Balogun, Group Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer (GMD/CEO) of the company confirmed this to Proshare NI today in



Balogun had earlier affirmed to Proshare NI that the hybrid offer would commence mid-August.

Equity Assurance is seeking to raise this fund for its strategic expansion plans; which will involve the company playing an active role in the Oil and Gas sector of the Nigerian economy.



Apart from the above, the company is willing to expand its frontiers to the West African sub-region.



“We are also expanding our business into Life Insurance and would also consolidate our health insurance business†Balogun affirmed.



However, as at the time of filling in this report, Proshare NI could not get further details as regards the hybrid offer of Equity Assurance.
