At the Board of Directors meeting subsequent to the AGM, the following decisions were taken:

  • Mr. William White was appointed as director of the Corporation. Glen Kayll voluntarily stepped-down from the Board of Directors to make room for Mr. White;
  • Mr. Mazen Haddad was named Chairman of the Board of Directors replacing Robert Guilbault who stepped down from the Board after serving as chairman for four years;
  • Mr. Normand Bergeron who has served on the Board of Directors for three years has also stepped-down.

Mr. Daniel Verret, Argex's corporate controller will assume the role of Chief Financial Officer in replacement of Mr. Glen Kayll. Mr. Verret is a Chartered Professional Accountant and a seasoned finance executive. Between 2002 and 2014, Mr. Verret served as Vice President and Principal Accounting Officer at Yellow Pages where he oversaw financial reporting, accounting services and administrative services. He played an instrumental role in Yellow Pages' growth and has been directly involved in transactions and financing in excess of $7 billion during his career. Mr. Glen Kayll will remain with the Corporation in a special advisory role.

"Argex would like to thank Glen, Robert and Normand for their contribution over the past years towards Argex's goals and objectives. We are excited by the expected contribution by Mr. White and Mr. Haddad in their new roles. A greater emphasis on strategic industry relationships and shareholder value and communications are primary amongst Argex's key deliverables over the next 12 months," commented Roy Bonnell, President and CEO of Argex.

The Corporation also announced that it has raised gross proceeds of $300,000 in a private placement of common shares which closed today (the "Private Placement"). In connection with the Private Placement, insiders of the Corporation namely Mazen Haddad and Roy Bonnell completed a transaction whereby they sold an aggregate of 2,222,222 common shares of Argex to a North American investment group, and then bought 2,222,222 common shares under the Private Placement.

"The Private Placement is the first step in an expected series of financial measures designed to provide Argex with financial stability over the long run," added Mr. Bonnell. Proceeds of the Private Placement will be used for general corporate purposes. The common shares issued pursuant to the Private Placement will be subject to a four-month hold under applicable securities laws.
