NSE Identifies 25 ‘Early Filers’ Companies on Compliance

The management of the Nigerian Stock Exchange has named Dangote Cement Plc, Forte Oil Plc, Guaranty Trust Bank Plc and 22 others as companies that have exceeded the minimum listing standards in terms of timely disclosure of their audited annual and quarterly financial performance.

The NSE has therefore listed the companies as ‘Early Filers’ on the Schedule One, of its X-Compliance report. X-Compliance report is a transparency initiative of the exchange, which is designed to maintain market integrity and protect the investors by providing compliance-related information on all listed companies. On the other hand, 'Early Filers' are companies that file their financial statements at least two weeks before the due date.
