CALGARY, ALBERTA–(Marketwired – April 8, 2015) – Pan Orient Energy Corp. (“Pan Orient” or the “Corporation”) (TSX VENTURE:POE) announced today the adoption by its directors of an advance notice by-law establishing a framework for advance notice of nominations by shareholders for the election of directors.
The advance notice by-law is similar to by-laws adopted by many other Canadian public companies. It requires advance notice of nominations by shareholders of persons for election as directors and sets forth information that a shareholder must include in the notice for it to be valid. The advance notice by-law is intended to provide a transparent and fair process for nominating directors in connection with any annual or special meeting of shareholders.
Generally, for an annual meeting, including an annual and special meeting, of shareholders, notice to the Corporation must be given not less than 30 days prior to the date of the meeting. For a special meeting which is not also an annual meeting of shareholders, notice to the Corporation must be given not later than the 15th day following the day on which public announcement of the special meeting was made.
The advance notice by-law is effective immediately, but must be confirmed by ordinary resolution at the next meeting of shareholders, anticipated to take place in June 2015. If the by-law is rejected by shareholders, it will cease to be effective. The full text of the advance notice by-law can be found under the Corporation’s profile on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.
Pan Orient is a Calgary, Alberta based oil and gas exploration and production company with operations currently located onshore Thailand, Indonesia and in Western Canada.
