The bank in the statement issued to investors added that, with the exception of two retail investors who will receive refunds of GH¢205,000, all qualifying applicants had what they wanted.

ADB had an offer of 144 million shares during offer at a price GH¢2.56 per share during the Initial Public Offering.

The Bank says this is the one of the biggest IPO ever undertaken on the Ghana Stock Exchange (GSE) and demonstrated its continued development of the Ghanaian Public Markets.
