Ecobank Transnational Incorporated (ETI), parent company of the pan African Ecobank Group, has declared dividend of USD 48.2 million. The company made the decision at its 28th Annual General Meeting (AGM) and a separate Extraordinary Meeting at the company’s head office in Lome.
In a statement made available by the company said the outcome follows two years during which ETI did not declare a dividend.
The general meeting approved the company’s accounts for the 2015 financial year and the appropriation of its profits, which amounted to USD 60.77 million.
The meeting renewed the mandate of Dr. Daniel Matjila (representing Public Investment Company/Government Employees Pension Fund) for another three years. It also ratified the cooption of Messrs. Abdulla Al Khalifa (representing Qatar National Bank), Ade Ayeyemi (Ecobank Group Chief Executive Officer) and Mfundo Nkuhlu (representing Nedbank Group Limited) as directors.
Also at the AGM, Mr. Ignace Clomegah and Mrs. Catherine Ngahu were elected as directors for the group.
However, the meeting approved the re-appointment of joint auditors Deloitte Nigeria, and Grant Thornton, Côte d’Ivoire for a term of a one-year term.
Also, a separate Extraordinary Meeting saw various other resolutions passed. With regard to the consolidation of shares, a resolution was passed authorising that the nominal value of the ordinary shares of the company be increased from 2.5 US cents per share to 50 US cents per share. This would be done by consolidating every 20 ordinary shares held into one new ordinary share each, and issuing in replacement, new ordinary shares of 50 US cents each.
