Given the current circumstances, and in the interest of GFH Financial Group B.S.C. (the “Group”) towards public safety, it has been decided to hold the Annual General Assembly Meeting (“AGM”) scheduled for 23rd March 2020 at 11:00 am Bahrain time through electronic communication means. In addition, the AGM agenda has been amended by deleting item 12 related to election of 10 board members for the next three years from 2020 to 2022, due to the inability to hold a secret ballot electronically, and postponing the elections for six months. Accordingly, we request the Group’s shareholders to follow the below instructions in order to ensure their participation in the meeting swiftly:

  1. Send an email request which must include a clear passport of identification card copy of the shareholder or the person representing them with the proxy to the email , in order to validate the identity and validity of the attendee at least 24 hours prior to the scheduled time of the AGM. Please also include the contact number and email of the person attending the online session.
  2. After receiving the required documents and information, a link will be sent to the attendee for the online server (ZOOM) prior to the convention of the meeting to allow the attendee to take the necessary steps to join the session. The device used to participate in the online session must be compatible with video and telecom services.
    We advise the shareholders to abide with the aforementioned instructions to ensure a swift and smooth convention of the meeting in line with the Laws and Regulations. It is also to be noted that the Central Bank of Bahrain has approved the extension of the current Board’s term for six months.
