Clients of gold-trading firm Menzgold, will, from 9 November 2018, start receiving 15 per cent of their principal investments from the company, ClassFMonline.com has learnt.
The company will send the clients direct messages to that end and make the payments into their bank accounts.
The company recently said it will resume full operations on or before 5 November 2018.
Menzgold said it will launch a new gold/collectibles trading product that would make it possible for existing transactions to be migrated unto that platform for immediate and prompt extra value and principal payments.
This was contained in a press statement signed by Nii Amarh Amateifio, Acting Head of Communication of the company.
The statement said the management is yet to decide on the percentage to be paid to its existing customers who have expressed their desire to terminate their investments with the company.
The percentage, once agreed, will be paid directly into the accounts of all customers, Menzgold said.
The company has been unable to pay its clients their dividends due to an ongoing battle with the Security and Exchanges Commission (SEC) and the Bank of Ghana over its operations. While the state institutions say the company has not been licensed to take deposits, Menzgold insists it does not take deposits and does not answer to the two institutions.
Some clients who have not been able to access their dividends are seeking to terminate their contract with the company while others have hinted at dragging Menzgold to court.
Below is the full statement from Menzgold:
