Guinness Ghana launched the GHS180 million rights offer  in March, 2016 with the aim of  retiring  part of its debt.

The company believed that the move would optimise its capital structure and improve its financial and operational flexibility.

Following  an earlier Rights Issue of GHC70,000,000 in November 2011, the Company successfully reduced its outstanding net debt from GHS 104,907,000 as at June 2011 to GHS 5,626,000 as at June 2012.
