Ransford Sowah

GCB Ltd has set Thursday, July 30, 2020 for the holding of its Annual General Meeting (AGM) virtually at the GCB Head Office in Accra.

This year’s meeting is highly anticipated by shareholders and industry players due to the ravaging effects of the Covid-19 virus and GCB’s status as Ghana’s largest indigenous bank.

The AGM would be held in compliance with the Imposition of Restriction Act 2020 (Act 1012), the Registrar General’s Department and Securities and Exchange Commission directives and guidance on holding virtual Annual General meeting (AGM).

Owing to these, attendance and participation by members or their proxies in this year’s AGM of the bank, shall be strictly virtual.

In a notice published on Tuesday, July 7, 2020 the bank explained that a unique token number would be sent to shareholders by email and/or SMS beginning July 13, 2020 to give them access to a unique portal created for the AGM -https://www.gcbbankagm.com – where they could input their unique token number to join in and vote electronically during the meeting.

The notice also said shareholders, who intended to appoint proxies, were to download a proxy form from the AGM web portal, fill and submit.

The AGM proceedings would be transmitted live on GTV at 10:00am.

Principal items on the agenda for this year’s AGM include the consideration and adoption of the Financial Statement of the company for the year ended December 31, 2019, the declaration of dividend and re-election of directors among other important matters.
