It also involve technical activities of a own routine nature concerned with translating research findings or other with translating research findings or other scientific knowledge into products or process.0 INTRODUCTION 1.1 BNACKGROUND OF THE STUDY Industrial growth forms the basis for industrial development is not only needed for its ability to improve living standard. It also acts as a weapon for building national strength and prestige.CHAPTER ONE 1. With the concept of investment as a central factor in the acceleration of industrial growth and development and the prominence given to industrialization. Therefore industrial development implies the increase of industrial. expansion of quality and quality of output and the institutionalization of industrial growth process.

Access to the vast number of capital that are in very small amount of money that in their aggregate have s commend over vast quantities of wealth. By this activity the stock exchange is able to provide an avenue for long term investment to be financed by funds provided by individuals many of whom to make it available for a short term or with draw it at will. Other functions of the stock exchange include the offer of guidance to the business management in relation to the present cost of capital so that the business man can determine his level of investment appropriate to the firm.bought by institutions provide vast numbers of different shares to be trades and providing a broad market in government securities its economic significance depends on its ability to mop up financial capital for investment purpose these include providing liquidity and enhancing these marketability of new issues of stock thus reducing the real costs to business firm by expanding the scope for obtaining fund. It also make it possible for the transfer of funds that imposes only a minimum of administrative efforts he lender. The competitive nature of the stock exchange makes it possible to allocate funds efficiently which is achieved by the market ability to available xiv .

And it in when shares are valued in relation to the expected capitalized value of the firm that effective disciplinary advice which punishes management whose operation are inefficient or unprofitable. xv . equipment and material to increase the physical capital stock of the nation. The stock exchange market plays an important role in propping up financial capital and provision of market for quoted stock so as to chance the fulfillment of these economic growth parameters.companies securities in a manner based on the capitalized value of the company’s expected future earnings. Therefore a reliable rate which results from investment in new factories. Apparently. machinery. only if stock are valued in this way will funds be provided most abundantly and at most reasonable terms to the most promising innovation who accounting to the classical economic theory has the greatest use for them and who is the one that can obtain the profits which will serve as the investors rewards. This investing so as to actualize the economic growth.

For the fact that the number of quoted security is small and the total capitalization is about 335 billion which is nothing when compared with some companies abroad that have more than that amount of money as its capital is not encouraging. The worst of it all is the political climate. The stock market is faced with the problem of valley in delivering and settlement of stock transaction. And for the fact that the government is get to privatize most of the companies in making the stock market not to have financial strength. Also affecting the market is the fact that most of the operators ie the issuing.1. the stock brokers auditors etc. which will not allow foreigners to invest in our securities because of unforeseen circumstances. xvi .2 STATEMENT OF PROBLEM The ignorance of the stock exchange has brought about how participation of firm and individual engaging in the stock exchange and this has also limited the availability of stocks and shares that could be traded on the stock market. are not connected on line and as a result of this information does not come handy.

One of the objectives is to examine the extent to which the Nigerian stock exchange has helped in the growth and development of the industrial sector. This research work could also be guide to subsequent research work similar to this. Why are stock market facing the problem of delay in delivering and settlement of stock transaction? 2. the recommendations from this write up can also help to as large extent to improve stock exchange and it show the important of the stock market.4 RESEARCH QUESTION 1.1. What cause low participation in firm and individual engaging in the stock exchange? xvii . 3. 1. The stock exchange has contributed positively to the industrial development of the economy in providing market for quoted securities.3 OBJECTIVE OF THE STUDY 1. 2. The role of stock exchange to industrial development encourage firms and individuals to invest in the stock exchange venture. 4.

How can our political climate not allow foreigners to invest in our country? 4. 1. Why do government delay to privatize most of the companies in order to have financial strength in the stock market? 1.3.5 HYPOTHESIS FORMULATION To facilitate the expansion of the claims on the stock exchange role in industrial development these hypothesis have been formulated to know if the Nigeria stock exchange has made positive contribution to the industrial growth and development in Nigeria. H0: There is no positive relationship between operational efficiency and pricing of securities. H0: There is no positive relationship between operational efficiency and pricing of securities. xviii . H0: Quoted firm do not perform significantly better then they did prior to such quotation H0: Quoted firm do not perform significantly better then they did prior to such quotation 2.

H0: Increase in quotation does not lead to increase in the investible fund.6 SIGNIFICANCE OF THE STUDY The role of stock exchange and a catalyst in the development of the economy has not been a question of debtor. H0: Increase in quotation does not lead to increase in the investible fund. xix . The stock exchange exist as a sources of fund to the industrial development and also for the channeling of personal savings stock into industrial place for trading company’s stock. It also creates room for capital widening stock rather than deeping it. The benefit of stock exchange quotation is the result of lower cost of capital when raising fund through the market as stock exchange helps to allocate funds between industries and also makes funds available to the most productive industries which hence develop the nation.3. 1.

Another problem is the time allocation in this research work which is not enough to make a thorough investigation which the topic deservers. Although some members of the exchange assisted with some data information and oral explanation but not without restriction and limitations. Problem into salient areas were not allowed rather an exclusive reservation of the market and all information relating to such area were preserved for the market use only.1.8 LIMITATION These proposition are not easily established with out some constraints here and there. 1. xx .7 SCOPE OF THE STUDY The scope of this study covers only the role the stock exchange as a marketing floor for quoted share and stock thereby providing liquidity for the shares and stock helps in the moping of units of inevitable funds which on the aggregate dorm large enough capital. The financial restrictions cannot be left out which also made it impossible to visit the exchange regularly. Some of the problems associated with the study is the lack of data and stick confidence exclusive to the market.

E) is. During the war between France and England.CHAPTER TWO 2. there was much devastation of the British economy that it couldn’t finance Merchant trade. As a result of this and the intention to spread the risk arising from the attack of British ships by pirates.0 LITERATURE REVIEW Different opinions have been expressed about what stock exchange (S. But the encyclopedia of banking xxiii . The stock exchange does exist for the purpose of channeling personal savings into industrial place for trading company shares. and the remedy was the creation of a formal market. The market on which money is provided. Since there was the potentials polices of capital widening rather than capital deepening. there was need to mobilize capital to finance trade since direct financing was not enough to sustain the trade levels . Kenneth Midgley said that the stock is the prime institution in the stock market and it is a specialist market place. it has form time been referred to as the source of capital for business expansion. It also provides the mechanism for the exchange of shares which already exist.

From the various opinions and views as stock exchange.and finance expressed the view that the exchange themselves do not trade in the listed securities they merely provide the facilities for trade. the firm has to become a member before benefit can accrue to her. Other opinions such as Christy et al look at stock exchange as an associate of broker formed to provide improved facilities for the execution of customers order and the Nigeria stock exchange in her pamphlet question and answer” meant for distribution to the public for enlighten purpose define the market as “A stock exchange is a market where large and small investors alike buy and sell through stock brokers the stock (or shares) of companies and government agencies the stock exchange provides the essential facilities for business expansion and development projects through investors who share in cooperation for the ultimate economic benefit of all Nigerians. through the stock market does not participate the actual fund creation but offer facilities for raising fund (capital formation) and this is crucial to the economic growth of any economy. To participate in the activities of the stock exchange. they have portrayed the market as a medium of raising capital. xxiv .

Stock exchange like any other economic activity grew out of the these factors. it could be properly referred to as a provider of fund for expansion for listed companies and a market creating forum for the sale of the shares of existing quoted firms. It has the ability to bringing together potential sellers and buyers.1 EVOLUTION OF THE STOCK EXCHANGE Event keep reminding us of the strong dependence of any economic policy on the flow of capital. Historically. the development of any economic activity depends on the situation prevailing at that time and the corresponding development of any economic activity will meet the demands of the time.Perhaps its exclusion policy the prestige it enjoys in all the stock market may be defined as a market creating form for registered companies who to raise additional fund for expansion modernization. 2. The stock market developed during the year of commercial and intellectual dermal between the restoration and death of Anne. xxv . Realistically. Therefore the prior conception of the stock exchange. as a provider of fund for the formation of new enterprises is an illusion. Purpose by using the facilities provided in the stock market.

this early voyages of the east India company market the beginning of a transition to xxvi . the ownership of which in fairly widely distributed. The first set of stock exchange developed by 218 merchant who wanted to open up trade with the India and East Indies pulled their resources together and signed into charter on December 31st 1600 after a prolonged negotiation. The formation of the stock depend strongly on the availability of securities and supply by the formation of font stock companies and during the beginning of the permanent natural department.Before this there must obviously be as considerable volume of securities. This was possible because of the fusion of the partnership and cooperation in the middle of the 16th century and this was provided the basis feature of the modern joint stock company’s. England fulfilled all these primary condition at the end of the 17 th century. there must be a sufficient number of wealthy men and women who wish to hold some of them possession in financial assets rather than in business or real properly. the development of the market will also be procedures for the transfer of titles and fairly small denomination and if there is a banking system to provide a simple means of payment.

Africa and fishery company’s. As a result of the prevailing situation then was wide spread holding of government short-term depts. Another landmark in company history accrued in 1962. And was normally with people whose market was obviously wanted. It was thin period that produced the first real boom in company floatation and which brought. which was fed by a rising supply of coins and notes.more modern practice. and the uncertainty of payment gave by opportunities to speculation. the share were generally of fixed though still large amount of subscription list were kept open until the total sum required had been raised. Prices rose sharply between 1990 and 1995 and there was great commercial activity and speculation. xxvii . and there was a wide spread inflation. when an act of parliament gave limited liability to share holders in the East India. The prolonged war of England and France brought the government into borrowing in large scale hitherto unprecedented. The profession of stock broking for the first time into limelight.

During this periods. During the late 50’ s when it was becoming eminent that there was to be independents state and growth of commercial activities. As a xxviii . the dealing in stock and share were haphazard and unorganized before 1860 but in the mid-nineties there was highly developed market. 2.It can be safety said that the foundation of modern stock market started from the tally broken” who death with government short-term dept to that turned their attention to longer term dept and to company stocks and shares in the seventeenth century. This takes us to the peculiar nature of the development of stock exchanges in Nigeria.2 HISTORICAL DEVELOPMENT OF THE NIGERIA STOCK EXCHANGE. The whole process of stock exchange evolution was as a result of economic situation existing at that time accompanied by government in public department. The Nigerian stock exchange evolve purely out of the act of parliament and speculation of future business expansion. some Nigerians in collaboration with their foreign partners (British) wanted a local source of fund for enterprise promotion.

1. 3. The creation of facilities in dealing in the shares. Consequently in 1853 the government set up a committee under bar back to advice on way and means of fostering a share market in Nigeria. The economic situation at that time brought many consequences and there was a retardation of business activities and basically the government initiatives were based on. 2. 2. The need to finance growing budget deficit as from 1958 by the issue of money capital market instrument. xxix .result of the desire for the establishment of an institution in the country to be used as an avenue for funds mobilization and development of local capital formulation. 1. The need to mobilize finance to embark upon development programme. The establishment of rules regulations transfer and 3. The report of the bar back committee was in 1959 and it recommended among other things. The deteriorating balance of payment position as from the government desire to facilitate the repatriation of funds invested abroad. The federal government had interest and took the initiative to establish a formal market for trading in stock and shares. Measures to encourage savings and issue of securities of government and other organization.

xxx . directly opposite the central bank. it could also mean the reflection of federal character.As a follow up of bar back committee the Lagos state exchange now Nigerian stock exchange was established on the 1861 under the Lagos stock exchange act 1961 no 1 the act states that. An act to prohibit the carrying of the business of stock broking in relations to stocks bearers and other securities granted in 1979. Today the Nigerian stock exchange occupies her permanent building at 2/4 customer street Lagos. As the economy grew it is accompanied by an expansion of business activities and the need to spread out into other parts of the country so as to after an opportunity for equal participation. there was another movement in Lagos for the provision of the necessary facilities to handle the work forested on it by the country’s economic circumstance. the stock exchange opened trading floors in Port-Harcourt and Kaduna in 1977 further more. The additional two floors in Port-Harcourt and Kaduna brings to three the number of trading floors while the national consist of the exchange retains the overall responsibility for quotation and the enforcement of regulations in the capital market.

2. always fluctuating according to the events in the economy and the absence of the stock exchange restricts the amount of investment that take place in a country and makes investment more difficult.3 GENERAL RELATIONSHIP OF THE STOCK EXCHANGE AND THE ECONOMY. It’s operational guidelines are as stated at the formation period of the Lagos state exchange with minor amendments made to suit the changing needs of the time.Further development led to the setting up of Nigerian financial system review committee in 1976. there was the transformation of the Lagos stock exchange into the Nigerian stock exchange. The stock exchange follows the rhythm of the economy. On he recommendation of the Nigerian financial system review committee in 1976. It is the investment capacity of any nation that determine the rate of her economic growth and the level of the people’s welfare. xxxi . It is that role of the stock exchange in mopping up money capital for investment purpose that forms its relationship with the economy.

Every economy aims art improving the welfare situation of her inhabitants by providing quantitative and qualitative consumer product in sufficient amount and this can only be achieved via investment process. This statement was further buttressed by Christy who said that bulk of American securities (about one half) of the new savings of the country for investment being raised in the capital market.” This relationship between the stock exchange and the economy makes the economy and the stock exchange to often more in the same direction particularly on the monetary policy influence via it’s impact on the stock market if the expansion xxxii .N. Stock exchange Investment G.Baumol has this to say that the market for stock and bond perform many essential and useful function in the limited state economy.P) and by making more goods available to the people for more consumption and improvement of their welfare.P Economy Market Increases Grows The mopped up capital is invested in the production sector of the economy to stipulate production and increase the output levels thereby improving the gross national product (G. In a well developed economy the bulk of her inventible fund passé through the stock exchange and this could be explained by the diagram below.N.

The stability of any economy and confidence in the ruling class depends on its ability to improve the welfare situation of the inhabitants and one way of doing this is by an increase in consumable items which always come as a result of investment. Having being able to always run ahead of anticipated events and the events when they happen. in the strict sense there is close relationship between the stock exchange and the economy.of the money supply reduce yields the discount factors to the future return from stocks will work to increase stock values. 2.4 ADVANTAGES OF THE STOCK EXCHANGE xxxiii . being so discounted have less effect if any effect at all. As the economy improve so also is the stock exchange trade performance improve this pari-passu movement of stock exchange and the economy confirms the claim that stock exchange pay close attention to the economy’s health. For this reason a health stock market is an important ingredient in the capital formation and economic growth process. Therefore.

It is the public given to the stock exchange that widens interest in the stock. Further advantage is its quality of liquidity which makes companies shares and debentures more attractive to investor’s who would like to associate xxxiv . This prestige offer quoted firms the advantages of better prices for their shares fairly determined financing is facilitated and added value is imparted by listing.As a sources of fund to the industry. “ scarcity and dearness of capital are a common place complaint whenever men of business are gathered together”. It is where a company has succeeded in joining the big companies on the stock exchange that it will be assumed as having derived and when admitted it offers the company easier means of raising money than was the previous case. Raising money on the stock exchange usually implies that there is a public limited liability company that required new capital and make an offer of this capital generally to the public and simultaneously an application is made to the stock exchange for permission to deal in the share. the prestige of the market enhance it’s collateral value and supervision of exchange and regulatory agencies usually brings good corporate and trading practices.

expansion of the industry Nigeria stock exchange is central in the investible fund mobilization act. it is this desire that the government created and maintained an ordinary market for the issue of trading in securities.5 FUNCTION OF THE STOCK EXCHANGE. Cost of capital 3. thereby facilitating the providing of xxxv . 1. Efficient allocation of funds between industries 4. 2. GROWTH INDUSTRY: Firms need funds to expand.themselves with companies quoted on the stock exchange and to provide the need capital for expansion. Growth in industry 2. Having said this we shall examine how the stock exchange has influenced the development of these parameters. 1. namely. The stock market and problem in indigenous enterprise. In influencing the development parameters the propelling factor of any development parameter in her productive sector so as to enhance a growth. Availability of funds 5.

COST OF CAPITAL: The benefit from the stock exchange quotation is the result of lower cost of finance when raising fund through the market as against the utilization of alternative source and the relation case of rising found through the market. A high stock price will exchange for relatively generously quantities of resources. The stock exchange form an avenue from which the saving of the problem can be mobilized and channeled into financial development in both the public and private sector of the economy. its benefits as regards the financing of industrial development to ensure expansion and growth reflected the common optimistic conviction that the presence of special primary and secondary market in securities would solve the problem of growing needs for industrial finance and thereby promote economic development. and this is generously referred to as lower cost of capital. But in reality the cost of living makes it higher in raising fund through the stock market and where there are no artificial constraints or the existence of any rigid and xxxvi .industrial finance. 2.

5. 3. 4. Thus if the stock market is to serve as an efficient allocation of capital in the economy at large. EFFICIENT ALLOCATION: Of funds if the stock market is to save as a efficient allocation of fund. the bank and other financial institution can provide the needed fund without much difficulties. AVAILABILITY OF FUNDS: By the manner of valuation whereby the share of progressive companies are increased and non-profitable are penalized. The stock market and problem in indigenous enterprises with the number of listed securities in the Nigeria stock market slow that the stock market xxxvii . it must device a means whereby it values the shares of a company on the bases of its expected capitalization earning when stock market closely correspond to perfect competition ideas the more efficient is the market as allocation of resources. it has succeed in allocating funds to the most productive sector of economy thereby enhancing the rate of growth of the nation. it must some how expect influence in the capital market over which it has no approach I direct control.baseless financial tradition.

and adopt other advertisement media to activate and stimulate public awareness about activities on the capital market and the benefit accuning to public quotation of companies. the apparent reluctance of Nigerian promoted companies to avail themselves of the services of the Nigerian stock exchange can be attributed at least in part to the failure of the exchange to persuade them to do so. still to witness the listing of a company wholly promoted by Nigerian entrepreneurs go this reluctant attitude of Nigeria enterprises to go public and get listed has been a ca se of concern on the management of the Nigerian stock exchange. If the market is to grow. xxxviii . Nigeria stock exchange has to conduct seminars. strenuous must be made to persuade and encourage indigenous business to make public issues and raise fund from the Nigerian capital market for this reason.
