Accra, Ghana, 17th December 2018
CAL Bank Shareholders approve transfer of GHS 50million from Income Surplus to Stated Capital in fulfillment of Bank of Ghana’s GHS 400 million Minimum Capital requirement.
CAL Bank’s shareholders today approved a resolution for the bank to transfer GHS 50 million from income surplus to stated capital. The transfer of GHS 50 million means CAL would have met the GHS 400m minimum capital requirement as prescribed by Bank of Ghana.
CEO of CAL Bank, Frank B Adu Jnr commented “We are delighted that our shareholders have given us this mandate today to transfer these funds to enable us fulfill the new minimum stated capital requirement of GHS 400M before 31st December 2018. By doing this, CAL Bank would have fully complied with the BOG’s directive on minimum stated capital. We are especially proud to have achieved this without raising fresh equity as our profit-driven strategy over the decades has enabled us accumulate healthy income surplus balances. We look forward to continuing our profitable operations as we enter our next 3-year strategic period commencing in 2019”.
