The Exchange disclosed that Oando, Medview Airlines, International Energy Insurance Plc, Thomas Wyatt Nigeria Plc, and Goldlink Insurance Plc have not submitted 2019 & 2020 audited results to the market stakeholders, a post-listing requirement for companies on the NGX.
THISDAY investigation revealed that most of the affected companies are faced with operational and regulatory bottlenecks, making it difficult to submit audited result and accounts on the Exchange.

Chairman of the airline, Sheik Abdul-Mosheen Al-Thunayan, had blamed the performance on political tension and tight liquidity.
Speaking with THISDAY, Chairman, Progressive Shareholders Association of Nigeria, Boniface Okezie, said the SEC should be held responsible for Oando’s delay, stressing that the out of court settlement was best for capital market and shareholders at large.
He said: “In the next few weeks, we are expecting the company to release audited 2019 results to the public. However, on other companies, we don’t know their problems. The management of NGX and SEC should intervene and find out their problems.”
