VANCOUVER, March 3, 2017 /CNW/ - Gitennes Exploration Inc. ("Gitennes" or the "Company") - (TSXV: GIT) announces today that it has completed its continuance into British Columbia under the British Columbia Business Corporations Act (the "BCBCA") from the province of Ontario as of February 24, 2017.
The continuance was approved by a special resolution of shareholders at the Company's Annual General Meeting on August 15, 2016, as reported in a news release issued by the Company on August 15, 2016.
The head office of the Company is located in British Columbia, and considering the nature of the Company's management and directors, shareholder base and operations, the continuance under the BCBCA will provide the Company with more flexibility as there are no residency requirements for the directors of a company existing under the BCBCA.
Advance Notice Policy
The Company is also announcing the adoption of an advance notice policy (the "Advance Notice Policy") regarding director elections. The purpose of the Advance Notice Policy is to provide a clear process for the shareholders, directors and management to follow when nominating directors of the Company. Such a policy will ensure that shareholders receive adequate notice of director nominations and sufficient information regarding all director nominees and to allow shareholders to register an informed vote after having been afforded reasonable time for appropriate deliberation.
The Advance Notice Policy, among other things, includes a provision that requires advance notice to the Secretary of the Company in certain circumstances where nominations of persons for election to the board of directors are made by shareholders of the Company. The Advance Notice Policy fixes a deadline by which director nominations must be submitted to the Secretary of the Company prior to any annual or special meeting of shareholders and sets forth the information that must be included in the notice to the Secretary of the Company. No person will be eligible for election as a director of the Company unless nominated in accordance with the Advance Notice Policy.
In the case of an annual meeting of shareholders, notice to the Secretary of the Company must be made not less than 30 days and not more than 65 days prior to the date of the annual meeting; provided, however, that, in the event that the annual meeting is to be held on a date that is less than 50 days after the date on which the first public announcement of the date of the annual meeting was made, notice may be made not later than the close of business on the 10th day following such public announcement.
In the case of a special meeting (which is not also an annual general meeting) of shareholders called for the purpose of electing directors (whether or not called for other purposes), notice to the Secretary of the Company must be made not later than the close of business on the 15th day following the day on which the first public announcement of the date of the special meeting of shareholders was made.
The full text of the provisions of the Advance Notice Policy can be found within the Company's Articles.
