Shareholders are referred to the declaration and finalisation
data announcement released on the Stock Exchange News Service
(“SENS”) on 21 December 2013, wherein shareholders were
advised that Oando proposed a Rights Issue of 4,548,236,276
ordinary shares of 50 kobo each at NGN 12.00 per share on the
basis of two (2) new ordinary shares for every one (1)
ordinary share of 50 kobo each held (the “Rights Issue”).

Shareholders are advised that due to the picketing action by
pensioners of the Nigerian Postal Service in late December,
2012/early January 2013, which resulted in disruption of
distribution of Rights Issue circulars to the majority of
Oando   shareholders,   the   Nigerian  Securities   Exchange
Commission has granted Oando a two week extension of the
Rights Issue period. Accordingly, the closing date of the
Rights Issue has been amended from Wednesday, 6 February 2013
to Wednesday, 20 February 2013.


The revised salient dates and times relating to the Rights
Issues are as follows:
