Umeme's share price has closed the week's trading on a high after it appreciated for the first time since it officially launched trading at the Kampala bourse at end of last year, touching sh300 from sh275, according to the Uganda Securities Exchange market report released on Jan. 11.
The power distributor raised sh950million as turnover after trading 3, 168, 870 shares.
Market analysts say the marginal appreciation might influence many shareholders to offer shares on the market, a decision that might pullback the company's share price.
