TORONTO, May 16 /CNW/ - General Donlee Canada Inc. ("General Donlee" or the "Company") (TSX: GDI) is pleased to announce that a majority of its shareholders have approved the following resolutions at its Annual and Special Meeting of Shareholders held on May 13, 2011:

-  a special resolution to approve a stock split ("Stock Split") amending the Company's articles of arrangement to divide the Company's common shares on a 2-for-1 basis, with one additional common share to be issued for each common share currently issued and outstanding. The stock split had already received the conditional approval of the Toronto Stock Exchange. If all regulatory approvals are obtained, it is expected that the common shares will begin to trade on a subdivided basis in late May or early June 2011.

- an ordinary resolution to approve the adoption of an incentive stock option plan ("Incentive Stock Option Plan") to allow the company to attract, retain and motivate directors, officers, employee and service providers. The plan provides that a maximum of 1,000,000 common shares will be reserved for issuance upon the exercise of options granted under the plan.

Commenting on the approval of the Stock Split resolution, Garen Mikirditsian, Chief Financial Officer of the Company, stated, "We are glad to see a majority of shareholders approving the Stock Split, as we believe that having a greater number of common shares will enhance our stock's trading liquidity, increase investor interest in the Company and encourage a wider distribution of our stock".
