Forte Oil Plans to Raise N100 billion to Expand Operations in Nigeria

0

Forte Oil said it plans to raise up to N100 billion to expand its operations in the country and will seek shareholders approval at its annual general meeting on April 26.

The company may raise the funds through a rights issue, bond or share offering, or global depository receipts, according to a statement issued on Thursday.

“The capital raising is part of our preparations to take advantage of opportunities in the economy,” Akinleye Olagbende, Forte Oil’s chief compliance officer, said.

Olagbende said the company could explore opportunities in the upstream sector of the oil industry and tap into other viable businesses to bolster its bottom-line.

In January, Forte Oil reported a profit before tax of N7.02 billion for its 2015 financial year compared with N6.01 billion the previous year.
