Batelco announces new board
Manama, March 6, 2014
Batelco Group, the international telecommunications group with operations across 14 countries, announced its new board of directors at the annual general meeting.
The new directors, appointed and elected at the meeting, are chairman Shaikh Hamad bin Abdulla Al Khalifa, deputy chairman Abdul Razak Al Qassim, Abdulrahman Yusif Fakhro, Khalid Al Mannaei, Raed Fakhri, Oliver McFall, Dr Ahmed Al Balooshi, Arif Rahimi, Khulood Al Qattan and Ahmed Al Hujairy, reported the Gulf Daily News, our sister publication.
The newly elected and appointed directors have between them vast experience across the fields of banking, finance, investment, telecommunications, ICT, business development and international management consulting.
In a separate release yesterday, the telecoms firm said that an earlier statement by it incorrectly mentioned the awarding of one share for every five shares as a bonus issue.
Although the bonus share issue is five per cent as mentioned earlier, this translates to one extra share for every 20 shares currently held, Batelco said. – TradeArabia News Service
