Kesselrun Adopts Advance Notice Provisions
THUNDER BAY, ON, November 5, 2013 â€" Kesselrun Resources Ltd. (TSXV:KES) ("Kesselrun" or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that its Board of Directors has approved amendments to Kesselrun’s articles through the adoption of an advance notice provisions (the “Provisions”). Â The Provisions are subject to the approval of a special resolution of the Company’s shareholders.Â
The Provisions require advance notice to the Company in circumstances where nominations of persons for election to the Board of Directors of the Company are made by shareholders other than pursuant to a requisition of a meeting or a shareholder proposal made under the Business Corporation Act (British Columbia).
The Provisions are intended to facilitate an orderly and efficient annual and/or special meeting process, ensure all shareholders receive adequate notice of director nominations and sufficient information with respect to all nominees, and allow shareholders to register an informed vote, having been afforded reasonable time for appropriate deliberation.
The Provisions fix a deadline by which holders of record of the Company’s common shares must submit director nominations to the Company prior to any annual or special meeting of shareholders, and sets out the information that a shareholder must include in such notice to the Company.
In the case of an annual meeting of shareholders, notice to the Company must be made not less than 30 days nor more than 65 days prior to the date of the annual meeting; provided, however, that in the event that the annual meeting is to be held on a date that is less than 40 days after the date on which first public announcement was made of the date of the annual meeting, notice may be made no later than the close of business on the tenth day following such public announcement.
In the case of a special meeting of shareholders (which is not also an annual meeting), notice to the Company must be made not later than the close of business on the 15th day following the day on which first public announcement was made of the date of the special meeting.
The Provisions are effective until they are confirmed, confirmed as amended or rejected by shareholders of the Corporation at the next annual and special meeting of shareholders, to be held on December 17, 2013. If the Provisions are confirmed or confirmed as amended at the meeting, the Provisions will continue in effect in the form in which they are so confirmed.
If the Provisions are rejected by shareholders at the next meeting, or the directors do not submit the Provisions to shareholders at the meeting, the Provisions will cease to be effective from the date of the meeting and no subsequent resolutions of the Board of Directors having substantially the same purpose or effect as the Provisions would be effective until confirmed or confirmed as amended by the shareholders of the Company.
