An extra Ordinary General Meeting was convened on Friday, June 23 2017.Also the bank has effected changes to its regulations.

The amendment of section 74 of the company’s regulation became necessary due to the floating of the banks shares on the stock exchange.

The move has allowed private investors to acquire shares and therefore need representation on the board.

BelStar Capital Limited, which has about 34 percent shares in ADB pushed for the convening of the Extra Ordinary General Meeting.

The Deputy Managing Director, Patrick Kinsley-Nyinah told Star Business’ Osei Owusu Amankwaah that the meeting was necessary to ensure that the interest of private shareholders are catered for on the board.

He added that, a new board will be constituted soon to determine the fate of the current managers of the bank.

Board Chairman of the bank, Nana Soglo Alloh IV told Starr Business the changes to the board will not affect the operation of the bank.
