Nov 27 (Lagos) -  The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has extended by 1 year, the deadline for consolidation of multiple accounts into a single account by December 31, 2019 (previous deadline was December 31, 2018).

The affected investors are those that:
  1. Subscribed to shares of the same company with different name combinations or multiple/different names during public offers.
  2. Shares purchased through Stockbrokers, Registrars, Banks or other Capital Market Operators in any combinations of names.
