On 6 August 2010 the Meikles Limited Board met to consider the offer from Mr N M K Chanakira and his associated companies to purchase the Company's interest in Kingdom Financial Holdings Limited ("KFHL").
In the interests of the Group, the Meikles Limited ("Company", "ML") Board has so far exercised patience and restraint in response to the recent unauthorized "public announcements" of members of the Board of Kingdom Financial Holdings Limited ("KFHL") and persons who are not members of the Board of KFHL. These unauthorized announcements were, amongst other things, made without the permission or prior knowledge of KFHL's sole shareholder ML, or the ML Board. The ML Board can no longer remain silent. The ML Board has now requested the KFHL Board to comply with certain corporate formalities in terms of both the Companies Act and the Banking Act to ensure the de-merger is legally implemented.
As you might be aware, the demerger of Kingdom Meikles is still underway and on our part, Kingdom Financial Holdings Limited (KFHL) is working assiduously to discharge its agreement with the shareholders of Meikles as part of the conditions of the demerger process.
