Swala’s CEO David Mestres Ridge said, “We are delighted that today Swala Oil and Gas Tanzania Plc is officially launching its IPO.

Hon. Abdullah Mwinyi, a Director at Swala Oil and Gas Tanzania Plc added, “There has been a great debate on the need for local content in this booming oil and gas industry; we are delighted that today  Swala would become the first oil and gas company to walk the talk. We strongly believe that Tanzanians should be given an opportunity to participate in the oil and gas business; this IPO opening allows them to do just that".

Application forms and copies of the prospectus will be available online at Nihisa.com, at the offices of all Licensed Dealing Members (LDM) of the Dar Es Salaam Stock Exchange (DSE), branches of CRDB Bank Plc and offices of Arch Financial & Investment Advisory Ltd.
