The NASD OTC market closed the first half of the year with a growth of 13.29% on its Index. Despite the policy flip flops, exchange rate uncertainty and budget delay which faced the Nigerian economy, it recorded a growth at the end of the first six months of the year.

Market capitalisation added ₦41.19 billion rising from ₦395.98 billion to close at ₦437.17 billion yesterday.
