Based on the voting results, all of the nominees proposed as directors and listed in the management information circular dated May 6, 2022 (the “Circular”) were elected as directors of Eastplats at the Meeting in accordance with applicable corporate law.
However, two directors (Diana Hu and Michael Cosic) had more votes withheld than were voted in their favour of their appointments to the Board. As a result, in accordance with the Company’s Majority Voting Policy (the “Policy”), these two directors have tendered their resignations from the Board of Directors of the Company (the “Board”), effective upon acceptance by the Board. The Board will refer such resignations to the Corporate Governance and Compensation Committee (the “Committee”) for consideration on whether or not to accept the resignations submitted by these directors. In accordance with the Policy, the Board shall accept such resignations unless the Committee determines that there are exceptional circumstances relating to the composition of the Board or the voting results that should delay the acceptance of such resignations or justify rejecting such resignations. The Board will issue a news release with its decision.
At the Meeting, Eastplats’ Stock Option Plan has been authorized for three further years, and the PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP were also re-appointed as auditors of Eastplats.
