NASCON Approves Merger With Dangote Companies: What To Know

The proposed merger of NASCON Allied Industries Plc with Dangote Sugar Refinery Plc and Dangote Rice Limited has been approved by the NASCON Board of Directors.

Approval of the Unaudited Financial Statements for the second quarter ended June 30, 2023; 2. Approval to undertake a scheme of merger among the company, Dangote Sugar Refinery Plc and Dangote Rice Limited, subject to the approval of regulators and shareholders.“
