About UAC Plc
The Company has evolved through a series of mergers and acqusitions and restructurings as the various entrepreneurs sought to enthrone profitable and enduring enterprises.
uac was first incorporated in Lagos, Nigeria under the name Nigerian Motors Ltd on April 22, 1931 as a wholly-owned subsidiary of the United Africa Company Ltd. (a subsidiary of Unilever), which later became UAC International. The Company's name was changed to United Africa Company ( Nigeria ) Ltd on 23rd July 1943.
It became The United Africa Company of Nigeria Ltd on 1st February, 1955 and started acquiring, over a period of five years, a large part of the business of UACI. In 1960 C.W.A. Holdings Ltd, England also a subsidiary of Unilever, acquired UACI's interest in the company.
The name was changed to UAC of Nigeria Limited on 1 st March, 1973.
In compliance with the Nigerian Enterprises Promotion Act 1972, 40 percent of the company's share capital was acquired in 1974 by Nigerian citizens and associations and in accordance with the provisions of the Nigerian Enterprises Promotion Act 1977, an additional 20 percent of the uac's share capital was publicly offered in 1977, increasing Nigerian equity participation to 60 percent.
The name UAC of Nigeria Plc was adopted in 1991.
In 1994, following the divestment of 40% interest in the Company by Unilever PLC, the Company became a wholly-owned Nigerian Company. The transformation of uac from a trading behemoth into a leading manufacturing concern, even though it took root in the 1980s, was given serious impetus in 1990s, following the exit of the company from its trading businesses.
In early 2000, uac further embarked on a series of business restructuring with a thorough portfolio review and switch of focus to value-adding operations. This has led to an era of focused growth on the foods, real estate, logistics and automobile sectors.
Today, uac has become a Food–focused Conglomerate with leading brands such as Mr Biggs, Gala, Grand Oils, Supreme, SWAN Natural Spring Water and Gossy Spring Water. The Company's brand portfolio also includes franchised international food brands such as Creamy Inn, Chicken Inn and Pizza Inn.
