Toronto, Ontario – TheNewswire – October 22, 2021 – CANSTAR RESOURCES INC. (TSXV:ROX) & (OTC:CSRNF) (“Canstar” or the “Company”) announces that its board of directors approved the adoption of an advance notice by-law (the “Advance Notice By-law”), establishing a framework for advance notice of nominations of directors by shareholders of the Company (“Shareholders”). Among other things, the Advance Notice By-law fixes certain deadlines by which Shareholders must submit a notice of director nominations to the Company prior to any annual or special meeting of shareholders where directors are to be elected and sets forth the information that must be included in the notice.
The Advance Notice By-law provides a clear process for Shareholders to follow for director nominations and sets out a reasonable time frame for the submissions of nominees and the accompanying information. The Advance Notice By-law will help to ensure that all Shareholders receive adequate notice of the nominations to be considered at a Shareholder meeting at which directors are to be elected and can thereby exercise their voting rights in an informed manner. The Advance Notice By-law is similar to the advance notice by-laws adopted by many other Canadian public companies.
More specifically, the Advance Notice By-law requires advance notice to the Company in circumstances where nominations of persons for election as a director of the Company are made by Shareholders other than pursuant to a request for a meeting or through a Shareholder proposal, in each case in accordance with the Business Corporations Act (Ontario) (the “OBCA”)
In the case of an annual meeting of Shareholders, notice to the Company must be given not less than 30 or more than 65 days prior to the date of the annual meeting. In the event that the annual meeting is to be held on a date that is less than 50 days after the date on which the first public announcement of the date of the annual meeting was made, notice may be given not later than the close of business on the 10th 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 given not later than the close of business on the 15th day following the day on which the first public announcement of the date of the special meeting was made.
The Advance Notice By-law is effective immediately and will be placed before Shareholders for approval, confirmation and ratification at the next annual and special meeting of Shareholders of the Company to be held on November 29, 2021 (the “Meeting”). Pursuant to the provisions of the OBCA, the Advance Notice By-law will cease to be effective unless approved, ratified and confirmed by a resolution adopted by a majority of the votes cast by Shareholders at the Meeting.
