The Nigerian Exchange Group (NGX Exchange) has placed Resort Savings and Loans (Mortgage firm), Union Homes, and Aso Savings & Loans on restructuring status.
This was disclosed by the Exchange in its X-Compliance Report , released last Friday and seen by Nairametrics. Why they were asked to restructure
The Exchange approved their restructuring after it suspended trading in the shares of the three companies for failing to file their financials with the bourse between 2017 and 2020.
The companies were suspended pursuant to the provisions of Rule 3.1, Rules for Filing of Accounts and Treatment of Default Filing, Rulebook of The Exchange (Issuers’ Rules).
The Rule provides, “If an Issuer fails to file the relevant accounts by the expiration of the Cure Period, The Exchange will send to the Issuer a “Second Filing Deficiency Notification” within two (2) business days after the end of the Cure Period; suspend trading in the Issuer’s securities; and notify the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and the Market within twenty- four (24) hours of the suspension.”

Findings by Nairametrics have revealed that the companies are currently going through hard times related to financial misappropriation.
