Under indigenization policy of the early 1970s the foreign shareholders were forced to see a significant position of their holding today. The company is 60 percent Nigerian owned and 40 percent foreign owned, the 60 percent Nigerian stakes is held by company employees and members of the public while the 40 percent foreign ownership is spilt almost equally between (WA Holding Limited (for unilever) and Heineken brewerizen Bv
