Accra, 23rd December 2015 – The Agricultural Development Bank Limited (“ADB”) announces the re-opening of its Initial Public Offer (“IPO”) after the two applications filed at the Supreme Court of Ghana for an order of Interlocutory Injunction and a writ to invoke the Original Jurisdiction of the Supreme Court Article 2,130,181(1)(3) and (5) of the 1992 constitution: Rule 45 of the Supreme Court Rules 1996(CI 16) by Dr Mark Assibey-Yeboah and the Union of Industry, Commerce & Finance (“UNICOF”) respectively, were struck out as withdrawn by the Supreme Court of Justice of Ghana.

The Supreme Court of Justice of Ghana, upon a voluntary application by Dr Mark Assibey-Yeboah and UNICOF to withdraw their applications after a review of their legal position, on 22nd September 2015 and 29th September 2015 respectively, struck out both applications as withdrawn. Upon the decision of the Supreme Court, the immediate legal constraints on ADB to re-open the IPO have been removed.
