(“AOS“) (TSX VENTURE:AOS) announces that further to its press release on August 23, 2016, AOS has provided notice to Smoothwater Capital Corporation (“Smoothwater“) that, due to the fact that the notice received from Smoothwater on August 22, 2016, under the AOS advance notice by-laws (for the nomination of five Smoothwater nominee directors at AOS’s next annual meeting of shareholders) (the “Nomination Notice“) is contradictory to the business proposed in the requisition of a shareholder meeting received from Smoothwater on March 28, 2016 (the “Requisition“) to replace three AOS directors with three Smoothwater nominee directors, AOS considers the Requisition to have been abandoned.
