Notice to creditors of

Abu Dhabi Commercial Bank PJSC





Following the announcement on 29th January 2019 that Abu Dhabi Commercial Bank PJSC (ADCB) and Union National Bank PJSC (UNB) intend to merge and together acquire Al Hilal Bank PJSC (AHB), we would like to update you on the transaction and your rights as a creditor of ADCB.


On 21st March 2019, the shareholders of ADCB and UNB passed the necessary shareholder resolutions at their respective general assembly meetings to approve the proposed merger, pursuant to the UAE Federal Law No. 2 of 2015 Concerning Commercial Companies (the Law). ADCB shareholders also approved the acquisition of the entire issued share capital of AHB immediately following the completion of the proposed merger.


The combination of the three banks creates a robust platform to grow the Bank's consumer and wholesale businesses in both conventional and Islamic banking. Greater scale will permit larger scope for financing to support the UAE's economic agenda for diversification, growth and investment in the bank's people, technology and infrastructure.


Pursuant to Article 288 (4) of the Law, we would like to notify you, as a creditor of ADCB, of the right to object to the proposed merger in writing within 30 (thirty) days from the date of this notice at the head oce of ADCB as set out below:
