Energy Commercial Bank Tuesday launched its Initial Public Offer to raise GH₵340 million in shares from the Ghanaian investing public.
The offer period which is expected to last for 30 days will be graced by several investors who have shown interest to acquire shares in the Bank.
The Bank is floating millions of shares at GHS1.30p per share. The shares will subsequently be listed on the Ghana Stock Exchange where they will trade on the secondary market.
