National Housing and Construction Company Limited (NHCC), is a Ugandan construction and real estate management company, partly owned by the Uganda Government. The Company’s mandate is to increase the housing stock in the country, rehabilitate the housing industry and encourage Ugandans to own homes in an organized environment.[2]

History[edit]

NHCC was established by the National Housing Corporation Act of 1964, as a 100% government parastatal. The Act was later repealed by the 1974 Decree to form National Housing and Construction Corporation. In July 2002, the Corporation became a Public Limited Liability Company known as National Housing and Construction Company Limited. Later, the Uganda government partially divested from NHCC by selling 49% shareholding to Libyan African Investment Company (LAICO), an investment company owned by the Government of Libya.[3]

Ownership[edit]

As of July 2014, the shareholding in the stock of NHCC is as depicted in the table below:

In 2011, NHCC owned assets in excess of US$70 million, with annual turnover of US$6 million. NHCC owned 5.0% of Housing Finance Bank, Uganda's 9th largest commercial bank, as of December 2013.
