Biorem shareholders approve option plan amendment



    GUELPH, ON, May 11 /CNW/ - BIOREM Inc. (TSXV:BRM) announces that
shareholders have approved amendments to its option plan to change the plan
from a 10% "rolling plan" to a fixed plan with a total of 1,796,745 common
shares reserved for options grants. Given previous options grants the
amendment to the plan increases common shares available for new option grants

modifications to the limits on granting of options to directors and officers.

shares limit, but grants to non-officer directors have been restricted to less

to acceptance by the TSX Venture Exchange.
