The Nigerian Stock Exchange (NSE) in collaboration with Bloomberg will hold
the fourth edition of the NSE-Bloomberg CEO Roundtable on Today, October 9, 2018 at Stock Exchange
House, Marina, Lagos. The event themed, “Reshaping the Nigerian Economy for Sustainable Growth:
Leveraging the Fourth Industrial Revolution as a Catalyst for Advancement”, will focus on the topical issue of
the fourth industrial revolution and its implication for the Nigerian economy.

This edition of the NSE-Bloomberg CEO Roundtable will bring together business leaders across multiple sectors
as well as government officials to examine the present state of the Nigerian economy in light of the unfolding
fourth industrial revolution and chart a way forward.

Speaking on the event, Oscar N. Onyema OON, Chief Executive Officer, NSE, said that “Nigeria’s dependence
on commodities production as the mainstay of its economy has historically proven to be the source of its
high risk exposure to global shifts in commodity demand. With the unfolding fourth industrial revolution
which has seen the embedment of technology across all aspects of society, I believe we can accelerate the
unlocking of untapped value across all sectors of the economy through the disruption of existing industries
and creation of entirely new ones. As with previous editions, I expect the forum to be highly interactive with
robust engagement”.

Confirmed speakers for the event include: Oscar N. Onyema OON, CEO, NSE, Patience Oniha, Director
General, Debt Management Office; Herbert Wigwe, Chief Executive Officer, Access Bank Plc; Mark Bohlund,
Africa Economist, Bloomberg Economics (BE); Fikayo Akeredolu, Country Manager, Bloomberg L.P; Charles
Anudu, Chief Executive Officer, Swift Networks; Jubril Enakele, Managing Director, Zenith Capital Limited;
Shola Akinlade, CEO/Co-Founder, Paystack; Paul Wallace, Africa Emerging Markets Reporter, Bloomberg
News and Tony Ibeziako, Acting Divisional Head, Listing Business, NSE.

The annual NSE Bloomberg CEO Roundtable is a platform that ensures continuous dialogue with key
stakeholders and provides strategic solutions to economic issues for follow up implementation by The
Exchange in its capital market advocacy role.
