LISTING: TORONTO STOCK EXCHANGE
TORONTO, Dec. 22, 2015 /CNW/ - Bird Construction Inc. (TSX: BDT) ("Bird" or the "Corporation") announces the adoption by its Board of Directors of By-law No. 3 of the Corporation (the "Advance Notice By-Law") establishing a framework for advance notice of nominations of directors by the shareholders of Bird. Among other things, the Advance Notice By-Law fixes deadlines by which shareholders must submit a notice of director nominations to Bird prior to any annual or special meeting of shareholders where directors are to be elected and sets out the information that a shareholder must include in the notice. No person will be eligible for election as a director of the Company unless nominated in accordance with the provisions of the Advance Notice By-Law.
The Advance Notice By-Law provides a transparent process for shareholders to follow for the nomination of directors and sets out a reasonable time frame for the submission of nominees and the accompanying information. The Advance Notice By-law will help to ensure that shareholders can exercise their voting rights in an informed manner, similar to the advance notice by-laws adopted by many other Canadian public companies.
The Advance Notice By-law is effective immediately. Shareholders will be asked to ratify and confirm the Advance Notice By-Law at the next meeting of shareholders. The full text of the Advance Notice By-law will be available under Bird's profile at www.sedar.com.
This press release contains forward-looking statements that involve a number of risks and uncertainties because they relate to events and depend on circumstances that will occur in the future.
