The Nigerian Stock Exchange ("NSE" or "The Exchange") is pleased to announce the migration of Chellarams Plc, Living Trust Mortgage Plc, McNichols Plc, and The Initiates Plc from the Alternative Securities Market (ASeM) to the Growth Board and the launch the associated Growth Board Index on Monday, 30 November 2020.

We believe that the inclusion of these companies on the All Share Index and the Growth Board Index of the NSE will provide increased visibility that will attract global investors".
