("UBS" or the "Company") (TSX Venture: UBS) announced today that it has called a special meeting of shareholders to be held in Milton, Ontario on Monday, July 5, 2010. The special meeting has been requisitioned by unidentified beneficial holders of 5,799,000 common shares of UBS, representing 5.6 per cent of UBS' 102,747,854 issued and outstanding shares, to have UBS shareholders vote on a resolution to remove the current members of UBS' Board of Directors from office and, if the resolution is adopted, to vote on a second resolution to fill the vacancies so created by the election of nominees proposed by the unidentified beneficial shareholders.
UBS understands that the law firm Gowling Lafleur Henderson LLP represents the unidentified beneficial shareholders.
