An additional N15 billion is sought by FSDH Merchant Bank Limited from the capital market through the sale of commercial paper (CP).

The lender is seeking fresh funds under its N40 billion CP issuance programme.

A notice from the organisation revealed that the current exercise is to be carried out in three series of 17, 18 and 19.

The CP sales commenced on Wednesday, October 18, 2023, and will close on Monday, October 23, 2023, with the funding date fixed for the next day.
