Access to capital remains a top priority for corporates, as capital is required to fund business expenditure, expansion aspirations and/or existing debt obligations, and the debt markets fulfil this funding requirement by availing competititve financing to corporates and governments. FMDQ Securities Exchange Limited (“FMDQ Exchange” or the “Exchange”), in furtherance of its commitment to the transformative development of the Nigerian debt markets, has approved the registration of the Johnvents Industries Limited ₦30.00 billion Commercial Paper (“CP”) Programme on its platform, in September 2022.

The CP Programme, which is sponsored by United Capital PLC – a Registration Member (Quotations) of FMDQ Exchange, will avail the Issuer, Johnvents Industries, the opportunity to raise short-term finance from the Nigerian debt markets through CP issuances within the Programme limit.

As Nigeria’s largest securities exchange by market turnover, FMDQ Exchange will continue to provide a liquid, transparent and efficient market geared towards supporting the aspirations of corporates, such as Johnvents Industries, to unlock the required capital to bridge the funding gap in Nigeria’s agriculture sector.
