During the meeting, the General Assembly discussed the proposed share capital-restructuring plan for the bank submitted by the board of directors, along with several item resolutions at enhancing the bank’s performance and driving its financial and economic growth.

The Assembly agreed to the bank entering into a guarantee agreement of Dhs3 billion with the Government of Sharjah, under which the bank’s accumulated losses will be written off, and the approval of the bank’s CEO to sign the guarantee agreement. Shareholders also approved to amend the bank’s Articles of Association in accordance with the Federal Decree Law No. (32) of 2021 concerning the commercial companies, in alignment with Governance Regulations issued by CBUAE and SCA, in accordance with the final approvals by the regulators.

The amendments included 75 articles in various sections of the company law, including the establishment of the company, the company’s share capital, other debt instruments, bonds and sukuk, the board of directors, the general assembly, the auditor, and the Bank’s financials. The Assembly also approved amendments to the bank’s optional reserve account. The Assembly also approved all other items listed on the agenda of the extraordinary meeting.
