Initially possessing an available capacity of 160MW, the plant’s capacity was substantially augmented to 680.83MW within four years, representing a staggering 227% increase.

This achievement not only surpasses the 5-year target set by the Bureau of Public Enterprises but also underscores Transcorp Power’s efficacy in the power sector.

Following its debut on the exchange, Transcorp Power Plc experienced an impressive 10% surge, culminating in a closing share price of N264 per share. This remarkable performance translated to a valuation of N1.98 trillion, reflecting a staggering N180 billion increase on the first day of trading. As part of the Transcorp Group conglomerate, which encompasses the power, hospitality, and manufacturing sectors, Transcorp Power Plc stands as the second power company to be listed on the exchange, following Geregu Power Plc.

Following Transcorp Power Plc’s listing, the NGX market capitalization witnessed a significant uptick, soaring by an impressive N1.85 trillion to settle at N55.89 trillion by the end of the trading session. This notable surge was predominantly driven by slight gains in the share prices of BUACEMENT and GEREGU.

In a noteworthy reversal from bearish sentiments, the NGX recorded a substantial uptick, with the NGX All-Share Index (ASI) surging by 95.91 points to reach 98,847.89 points. The positive momentum continued as the trading session concluded on a high note, highlighted by a remarkable 9.94% surge in Transcorp, emerging as the top gainer among the 25 stocks that recorded gains. Conversely, UNITYBNK, VITAFOAM, and DANGSUGAR experienced a 10% decline, positioning them as the worst performers among the 25 stocks with losses.

Transcorp led in terms of the highest volume of traded stocks by the market close, while Transpower topped in terms of the highest value of stocks traded. A total of 10,749 transactions were executed in the market for the day, marking an increase from the 9,168 reported in the previous session.

Today’s trading activity saw a notable increase in volume, with a total of 429.64 million shares exchanged, reflecting a significant rise from the previous session’s figure. Transcorp led the market in trading volume, with 203.43 million units, followed by Transpower with 40 million units, UBA with 19.59 million units, AIICO with 12.67 million units, and ACCESSCORP with 12.39 million units.
