CALGARY, ALBERTA–(Marketwired – April 1, 2014) – Canadian Quantum Energy Corporation (“Canadian Quantum” or the “Company”) (TSX VENTURE:CQM) announced today that, at the annual general and special meeting of shareholders of the Corporation held today, the shareholders approved the alteration of the Articles of the Corporation to provide for advance notice of nominations of directors in circumstances where nominations of persons for election to the Board are made by shareholders other than pursuant to a requisition of a meeting made pursuant to the provisions of the Business Corporations Act (British Columbia) (the “BCBCA“) or a shareholder proposal made pursuant to the provisions of the BCBCA (the “Advance Notice Provisions“).
Among other things, the Advance Notice Provisions fixes a deadline by which shareholders must submit a notice of director nominations to the Corporation prior to any annual or special meeting of shareholders where directors are to be elected and sets forth the information that a shareholder must include in the notice for it to be valid.
The purpose of the Advance Notice Provisions is to foster a variety of interests of the shareholders and the Corporation by ensuring that all shareholders, including those participating in a meeting by proxy rather than in person, receive adequate notice of the nominations to be considered at a meeting and can thereby exercise their voting rights in an informed manner. In addition, the Advance Notice Provisions are intended to provide a reasonable framework for shareholders to nominate directors and should assist in facilitating an orderly and efficient meeting process.
A copy of the Advance Notice Provisions have been filed under the Corporation’s SEDAR profile at www.sedar.com.
