Transnational Corporation (Transcorp) of Nigeria Plc has set a number of key targets to ensure long term shareholders’ returns and sustainability. The management also noted that the targets will also ensure that its subsidiaries experience more growth in the current financial year and beyond.
This is just as it said it will continue to engage the Federal Government as well as the Nigerian Bulk Electricity Trading Plc (NBET) to ensure its invoices are settled in time to ensure improved liquidity. The management team who disclosed this yesterday at the company’s half year (HY) analyst parley held virtually in Lagos said it’s optimistic that the group will close the 2021 financial year stronger. While delivering the financial performance of the company in H1 2021, the President/Group Chief Executive Officer, Transcorp Plc, Owen Omogiafo, said that although COVID-19 affected global businesses last year, the positive economic turnaround in economies, especially Nigeria, had made Transcorp’s H1’21 financial performance better than it was in H1’20.
