This is to inform members of the Nigerian Stock Exchange (NSE), esteemed shareholders and other stakeholders that Diamond Bank Plc is unable to release its 2017 audited financial statements by March 31. 2018 as required by NSE rules.
We have become aware that due to the stage of review of our accounts by the Central Bank of Nigeria, it is unlikely that this will be concluded in time for us to comply with the NSE and other regulatory rules guiding release of annual audited financial statements.
We have therefore sought the approval of the NSE and the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) for a delayed release. We are Optimistic that the accounts will be made available before or by April 30, 2018.
Please bear with us.
