The Board and Management of Ardova Plc (Ardova), at the weekend, allay concerns over the recent suspension of trading of the company’s securities on the Nigerian Exchange Limited (NGX) over the late filing of its 2021 Audited Financial Statements.
The statement explained that the delay in submission was primarily due to the accounting reconciliations that followed the acquisition of Enyo Retail and Supply Limited (ERSL), a transaction which was concluded in November 2021.
“Enyo’s accounting has now been harmonized with the IFRS accounting standard already in place at Ardova Plc, following which the group’s Consolidated Financial Statements were completed and duly audited.
“These audited financial statements were approved by Ardova’s Board of Directors following its meeting on 29 June 2022, and will be filed with the NGX on or before 8 July 2022.
“In accordance with NGX rules, we expect that the suspension of trading will be lifted upon submission. The Board and Management apologize for the inconvenience caused by this administrative circumstance and reassure our stakeholders that Ardova Plc remains committed to the highest standards of compliance and corporate governance”.
