As announced by the Company on April 29, 2019, the Company has reached a settlement with a group of shareholders who had requisitioned a special meeting of the Company's shareholders (the "Requisitioning Shareholders").
As part of the settlement, the Company appointed two experienced mining executives, Alan Pangbourne and Allen Palmiere, to join the Board as independent directors, and two long-serving independent directors have stepped down.
The Supplemental Proxy Materials set out the Company's recommendation that shareholders vote FOR the election of each of the seven directors of the reconstituted Board at the Meeting:
As part of the settlement, the Requisitioning Shareholders also withdrew their special meeting requisition. Accordingly, the Supplemental Proxy Materials reflect that the advisory resolutions set out in the Requisitioning Shareholders' special meeting requisition will no longer be considered at the Meeting.
