City Lodge Hotels to list on A2X

The group owns more than 7,000 rooms and offers accommodation across South Africa, Kenya, Namibia, Tanzania, Botswana and Mozambique.

City Lodge Hotel Group CEO Andrew Widegger said, “At City Lodge we care for our shareholders, for the money that they invest in our company and for the trust that they have placed in us to grow their money wisely. We see this secondary listing not only as a way to save our investors’ money through A2X’s low cost structure but also as an opportunity to attract potential new investors.”

A2X CEO, Kevin Brady said, “City Lodge has been a leading South African brand for over three decades and we are delighted to have their shares available for trade on our platform. They will be the first hotel group to benefit from a secondary listing on A2X as our low fee structure has been shown to narrow spreads and attract new liquidity thus helping to grow the overall market.”
