Postponement of Board Meeting, Closed Trading Period & Filing of Third Quarter Financial Statements

The Board of Directors had earlier scheduled its meeting to hold on October 23, 2020, but was constrained to postpone the meeting with a “No Objection” confirmation from the NSE in view of the current situation in Nigeria.

Considering the Nigeria Stock Exchange’s recent extension of time to file financial statements for the period ended 30 September 2020, the Board meeting will now hold on Thursday, November 5, 2020.
Further to this, Dangote Cement Plc.’s financial statements for the period ending September 30 2020 which would have been released before the end of October 2020, will now be released by November 6, 2020.

On this note, the ongoing Closed Trading Period will continue until twenty-four (24) hours after the relevant resolutions taken at the said Board meeting, are released to the public.

The Closed Trading Period is applicable to all parties that may at any time possess sensitive information that may materially affect the price of the securities of the Company. Accordingly, no Insider may deal in the securities of the Company during the Closed Trading Period.

Signed:

Edward Imoedemhe
Deputy Company Secretary
