Auditor Re-appointment

Deloitte LLP was re-appointed Auditors of the Company to hold office until the next Annual Meeting or until its successor is duly appointed.

Continuation of the Company's Incentive Stock Option Plan

The shareholders voted in favour of the resolution approving the continuation of the Company's Incentive Stock Option Plan ("Plan") and approving the unallocated options issuable under the Plan.

Amendment of the Company's Incentive Stock Option Plan

The shareholders voted in favour of the resolution to amend the Plan to include certain requirements and restrictions required by the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange ("TSXV") such amendments to take effect upon the Company listing on the TSXV.

After considering various factors, including the continued listing requirements and the on-going costs associated with having its common shares listed on the TSX, the Company has applied for voluntary delisting of its common shares from the TSX. The Company intends to transition the listing of its common shares onto the TSX Venture Exchange under the existing ticker "NRE". Application for listing has been made to the TSXV and the Company is providing the necessary documentation to complete the listing process. The listing on the TSXV is subject to final approval and acceptance by the TSXV. One of the conditions of listing is the amendment of the Plan by the shareholders. The Company expects the delisting of its shares from the TSX and the transition to the TSXV to happen simultaneously and the Company will issue a further press release once the date has been determined.
