Notice to Creditors of Union National Bank PJSC

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

On 21 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.
