NIGERIA – Beta Glass Plc last week, notified The Nigerian Stock Exchange that Frigoglass SAIC in Attens, the parent company of Frigoglass Industries Nigeria Limited, which is the core investor in Beta Glass Plc has announced that it is commencing an exploratory process relating to strategic options for its Glass business.
The company holds a market-leading position as a glass bottle manufacturer in West Africa and the Middle East, both prime targets for investments by top-tier international beverage brands.
Because of the long-term high growth potential of the glass packaging business and the company’s strong position and solid manufacturing base in Nigeria, Frigoglass has been approached by a variety of investors expressing their interest in a wide range of strategic options, such as joint ventures, minority participations or even full acquisition of the business.
As such approaches may represent significant value creation potential, the Company has resolved to evaluate those options in a structured manner and has retained Citigroup Global Markets Limited as its exclusive financial advisor to this effect.
