    Global has received communications from shareholders, holding a
significant number of shares, indicating their intention to propose a
resolution at the upcoming Annual General Meeting of Shareholders on May 12,
2009, to reduce the size of the Board of Directors from seven, as currently
contemplated in the Management Information Circular, to six and to nominate
four directors to effectively replace five of the candidates identified in the
