Access Bank’s Shareholders Approve Proposed Holdco Structure

0 107

Shareholders of Access Bank Plc have given the nod for the bank to proceed with its proposed restructuring into a Holding company status.

Access Bank Plc had last week announced that it has obtained approval in principle from the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) to restructure into a non-operating financial holding company.

The Group said the restructure into a holdco status will result in Shareholders holding shares in the Holdco in the same proportion as their current holdings in the Bank and the Bank’s subsidiaries.

The holdco status is expected to provide the banks with several benefits. The holdco structure will also bridge the risk by preventing one business from affecting the performance of another.

Upon completion of the holdco process, the bank will be known as Access Holdings Plc and it will own controlling stakes in all its subsidiaries and influence the decision-making process even though it will not be involved in the day-to-day running of the units.
