Eterna Plc Share Price Remains Flat, Three Days After Announcing N10bn Capital Raise


Thursday, October 11,  2018 / 05:32PM / Proshare Research  


Following the public announcement of the proposed issuance of a N10 billion,  270-day Commercial Paper by Eterna Plc (an integrated oil & energy company); its share price has remained flat in the last three (3) trading days.


The company had represented that the proceeds of the N10bn Commercial Paper would be used for working capital and general corporate purposes.


That is to be expected and believed but for the information available to high-end investors who posit that the fund raising is for the purchase of the shares of an equally listed entity in the downstream oil and energy sector.


That notwithstanding, the non-movement of the stock reflects a far much more statement on the sector’s fortunes and we will continue to monitor developments in that market space.


To date (YTD), the share price of EternaPlc has moved  up by +52.71% as against -15.23% YTD loss recorded by the NSEASI (outperformed the NSEASI by +37.5%).
