ABE Resources Adopts Advance Notice By-Law
Feb 6 14
ABE Resources Inc. announced the adoption by its board of directors of amendments to its By-Laws. By-Law 2014-1 includes a provision that requires advance notice to the Corporation in circumstances where nominations of persons for election to the Board are made by shareholders of the Corporation other than pursuant to (i) a requisition to call a shareholders meeting made pursuant to the provisions of the Business Corporations Act, or (ii) a shareholder proposal made pursuant to the provisions of the QBCA. Among other things, the Advance Notice Provision fixes a deadline by which holders of record of common shares of the Corporation must submit director nominations to the Corporation prior to any annual or special meeting of shareholders and sets forth the information that a shareholder must include in the notice to the Corporation for the notice to be in proper written form. In the case of an annual meeting of shareholders, notice to the Corporation must be made not less than 30 nor more than 65 days prior to the date of the annual meeting; provided, however, that in the event that the annual meeting is to be held on a date that is less than 40 days after the date on which the first public announcement of the date of the annual meeting was made, notice may be made not later than the close of business on the 10(th) day following such public announcement. In the case of a special meeting of shareholders (which is not also an annual meeting), notice to the Corporation must be made not later than the close of business on the 15(th) day following the day on which the first public announcement of the date of the special meeting was made. The Advance Notice Provision provides a clear process for shareholders to follow to nominate directors and sets out a reasonable time frame for nominee submissions along with a requirement for accompanying information. The purpose of the Advance Notice Provision is to treat all shareholders fairly 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 Provision should assist in facilitating an orderly and efficient meeting process. By-Law 2014-1 will be placed before shareholders at the next annual and special meeting of shareholders of the Corporation scheduled for February 26, 2014.
