September 03, 2015 – Banque Bemo
Beirut, September 3, 2015 – Shareholder-Rights©, a leading provider of ratings to global investors, announced today the results that Banque Bemo s.a.l – listed on Beirut Stock Exchange, with a market cap of 90 Million US Dollars at end of year 2014 – receives a D- grade in Governance & Integrity Rating (GIR) on Online Transparency and Disclosure.
Banque Bemo s.a.l has failed in its disclosure of Shareholders’ Rights related information and Corporate Governance policies such as the Annual Report, Code of Ethics, Corporate Governance Code, Financial Statements, and Board & Executive Management Information. The bank needs to address these weaknesses in order to give the right signals to shareholders and stakeholders.
Banque Bemo s.a.l falls within the Inadequate range according to our Grading System. A D- score means that the bank reveals a lack of disclosure of corporate governance principles and materials.
Overall, Shareholder-Rights© has rated all ten listed companies on the Beirut Stock Exchange. Banque Bemo s.a.l has ranked fifth.
The next Shareholder-Rights© GIR rating will take place in 2016, allowing the bank to address its weaknesses and improve its ranking.
