Notification To The Nigerian Stock Exchange On Fire Incident At Guinness Nigeria Plc’s Aba Logistics Centre.

On the 18th of January, 2019, a fire broke out at Guinness Nigeria Plc’s Aba premises located in the Osisioma Industrial Layout. The fire was swiftly contained and put under control by the Aba Fire Services, with assistance from neighboring companies. The Aba premises currently serves as a logistics centre with few personnel on site as major production operations take place in our Benin and Ogba Breweries.

Fortunately there was no injury or major material loss resulting from the incident. The fire was contained outdoors and did not affect any of the buildings on site. While awaiting the outcome of an assessment of the incident, we do not expect any material impact to our numbers.

As we continue to investigate the cause of the fire, we would like to express our thanks to the Aba Fire Service and Police as well as the neighboring companies and community for their swift response and assistance in containing the fire. We also thank everyone who reached out to us during the incident.

Guinness Nigeria is committed to ensuring the health and safety of our employees and the communities where we operate and continues to maintain the highest standards in this regard.
