GCB Bank ebrands as GCB Bank PLC

GBC Bank said the change was mandated by the coming to force of the Companies Act, 2019 (Act 992) section 21 (b) which directs the last words of the corporate name of public companies limited by shares to be Public Liability Company or the abbreviation PLC.

The corporate name is, therefore, GCB Bank PLC and, as such, going forward, the bank shall be referred to as GCB Bank PLC in all future publications and contracts with third-party providers, the bank noted.

However, it said by section 21 (14) of Act 992, the change in name shall not affect the rights or obligations of the company or render defective legal proceedings by or against the company.

Hence, for existing agreements and contracts that bear the bank’s old

name, their validity will not be affected by the use of the bank’s new name.
