CEO, UPDC Plc.
UPDC is a leading real estate development company which was established in 1997 and has since grown to become the largest real estate platform listed on the Nigerian Stock Exchange. We began our historic journey as a subsidiary of UAC of Nigeria Plc, but today we are proudly a strong standalone subsidiary of Custodian Investment Plc. focused on innovation, expertise, excellence.
UPDC has a recognized track record in developing, selling and leasing residential, commercial and retail assets across Nigeria. We also have a first-class facilities management business and 3-star hotel and conference centre as key subsidiaries to the UPDC Group.
We are proud of our history, our successes and our challenges as these are a testament to the resilience of our Company and the hard work and dedication of our people. We are equally grateful for the continued support of our shareholders as we transition into a phase of growth. We are in this together, and together we will build our future.
Our aim is to become the real estate service provider of choice in Nigeria, and we have a strong desire and commitment to maintaining high ethical standards as we create lifestyle products and services with the local market in mind. We will strive to provide value to our customers by understanding their needs and affordability when building and managing their real estate assets.
UPDC is currently focused on leveraging the strengths of its experienced management team, unparalleled market knowledge and track record to drive stakeholder value. We are embarking on an aggressive 5-year development strategy which we are confident will set the company on a path to profitability, with attractive risk-adjusted returns.
We are establishing a corporate culture in which every member of the UPDC family takes personal responsibility for delivering excellent value and service to our customers and shareholders.
With our strengthened capital base and solid foundation for growth, we can offer our investors considerable growth potential and opportunities for generating attractive long term returns in the Nigerian real estate sector.
We look forward to your continuing support, guidance and encouragement as you join us on this exciting journey.
