Jiulian Announces Results of AGSM and New Director
August 11, 2014 – Jiulian Resources Inc. (“Jiulian” or the “Company”) (TSX-V: JLR) announces that shareholders approved all resolutions put before them at its Annual General and Special Meeting of Shareholders held on August 5, 2014, at the Company’s offices in Vancouver, British Columbia. At the meeting shareholders voted to elect Messrs. Xiaolin (Charlie) Cheng, Yingbin Ian He, Paul Sorbara and Nanmao Su as directors for the ensuing year; to reappoint James Stafford, Inc. as the Company’s auditors for the ensuing year and authorized the directors to fix the auditor’s remuneration; and also approved the Company’s 2014 Stock Option Plan which is still subject to TSX Venture Exchange (“TSX-V”) approval. The shareholders also voted to adopt a new form of Articles which will provide the Company with greater flexibility for future corporate activities. For more information on these matters, please refer to Jiulian’s information circular, available on SEDAR (www.sedar.com) or on the Company’s website (www.jiulianresources.com).
The main change from the Company’s existing articles is the inclusion of the advance notice policy (the “Advance Notice Policy”). The purpose of the Advance Notice Policy is to provide a clear process for the shareholders, directors and management to follow when nominating directors of the Company. Such a policy will ensure that shareholders receive adequate notice of director nominations and sufficient information regarding all director nominees and allow shareholders to register an informed vote after having been afforded reasonable time for appropriate deliberation.
The Advance Notice Policy includes, among other things, a provision that requires advance notice be given to the Company in circumstances where nominations of persons 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); or (ii) a shareholder proposal made pursuant to the provisions of the Act.
Additionally, the Advance Notice Policy sets a deadline by which holders of record of common shares of the Company must submit director nominations to the Company prior to any annual 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 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 meeting. However, in the event that the annual 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 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 meeting) notice to the Company must be made not later than the close of business on the 15th day following the day on which the first public announcement of the date of the special meeting was made.
The full description of the Advance Notice Policy is available under the Company’s profile on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.
