Capital Market Story
Principles and values
Because they have a social responsibility, law firms shape the way business is done and therefore the direction society is headed. Centurion is one of a few Pan African law firms that are uniquely positioned in the energy field – a core sector on the African continent.
Resource wealth in Sub-Saharan Africa has been synonymous with corruption and dysfunction. Despite this, the reality is far more complex and generally more encouraging. “The simple fact is oil and gas provide African countries with the fastest route to prosperity,” says Chairman of Centurion, NJ Ayuk, “Natural resources are a pedestal for building nations, building economies and building wealth.”
1. We stand up for freedom, the rule of law, democracy and a united Africa.
2. We uphold the principles of a free market economy and its social responsibility.
3. We reject political and religious extremism.

The German Securities Trading Act (“Wertpapierhandelsgesetz”) obliges issuers to announce immediately any information, which may have a substantial price impact, irrespective of the communicated schedules. Therefore we cannot exclude that we have to announce key figures of quarterly and fiscal year results ahead of the dates mentioned above. As we can never rule out changes of dates, we recommend checking them on this website.
In accordance with article 19 of the EU Market Abuse Regulation, persons discharging managerial responsibilities for issuers shall notify the issuer and the competent authority of every transaction conducted on their own account relating to the shares or debt instruments of that issuer or to derivatives or other financial instruments linked thereto promptly and no later than three business days after the date of the transaction. This obligation also applies to persons closely associated with such persons.
Centurion publishes these notifications – along with other mandatory reports – through DGAP (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Ad-Hoc-Publizität mbH).
