International Northair Mines Announces Adoption of Advance Notice Policy
International Northair Mines Ltd. (TSXV: INM) (the "Company" or "Northair") announce that the board of directors of the Company (the "Board") has approved an Advance Notice Policy effective May 31, 2013. The Board of Directors adopted the Advance Notice Policy (the "Policy") to ensure, among other things, that all of the shareholders are provided with sufficient notice of the proposed alternative nominees well in advance of the any shareholder and that all of the shareholders are given ample opportunity to vote on a fully informed basis.
The Policy includes, among other things, a provision that requires advance notice be given to the Company in circumstances where nominations of qualified individuals for election to the Board are made by shareholders of the Company other than pursuant to: (i) a requisition of a meeting made pursuant to the provisions of the Business Corporations Act (British Columbia) (the "Act"); or (ii) a shareholder proposal made pursuant to the provisions of the Act. The Policy sets a deadline by which holders of record of common shares in the capital of the Company must submit director nominations to the Company prior to any annual general or special meeting of shareholders, sets forth the information that a shareholder must include in the notice to the Company, and establishes the form in which the shareholder must submit the notice for that notice to be in proper written form.
In the case of an annual general meeting of shareholders, notice to the Company must be made not less than 30 days and not more than 65 days prior to the date of the annual general meeting. However, in the event that the annual general meeting is to be held on a date that is less than 50 days after the date on which the first public announcement of the date of the annual general meeting was made, notice may be made not later than the close of business on the tenth day following such public announcement.
In the case of a special meeting of shareholders (which is not also an annual general meeting) notice to the Company must be made not later than the close of business on the fifteenth day following the day on which the first public announcement of the date of the special meeting was made.
The Company also intends to seek approval from shareholders of an amendment to the articles of the Company to provide for advance notice provisions similar to those contained in the Policy at the Company's annual general and extraordinary meeting of shareholders to be held on July 25, 2013 (the "Meeting"). The full text of the Policy is available under the Company's profile on SEDAR at www.sedar.com. Further details on the Meeting and the Policy will be contained in a Management Information Circular to be mailed to shareholders of the Company in connection with the Meeting. The Management Information Circular will also be available on SEDAR.
