Toronto, Ontario, July 5, 2021 (NEWSFILE) – Ready Set Gold Corp. (“Ready Set Gold” or the “Company”) (CSE: RDY | FSE: 0MZ | USA: RDYFF) today announced that it will hold an annual and special general meeting of shareholders on October 12, 2021 (the “AGM”), at which normal-course annual meeting matters will be discussed as well as matters raised in a purported dissident requisition (the “Requisition”) made pursuant to the Business Corporations Act (British Columbia) by CBLT Inc., which the Company believes may be controlled or directed by Peter M. Clausi (the “Dissident”).
The board of directors of the Company (the “RSG Board”) believes that it would be in the best interests of the Company to mitigate the significant costs and expenses of a contested meeting of shareholders so close to the time at which the incumbent directors would stand for election or re-election, as the case may be, in the normal course, and so the RSG Board has determined that holding the Company’s annual meeting earlier than usual, together with considering the matters raised in the Requisition, would be in the best interests of the Company and would also allow the newly elected directors at the AGM to enjoy a full mandate from shareholders for the ensuing year.
The RSG Board has attempted constructive engagement with the Dissident to hear out its concerns and to consider the qualifications of the Dissident’s candidates for inclusion on the RSG Board, however the Dissident has recently ceased its engagement with the Company. The Company welcomes constructive engagement with its shareholders generally and, while the RSG Board would prefer not to engage in a hostile and lengthy proxy contest, the RSG Board is committed to protecting the best interests of the Company in accordance with its fiduciary obligations.
The record date for the Meeting is September 3, 2021 and the AGM will be held at 333 Terminal Avenue, Suite 220, Vancouver, British Columbia, V6A 4C1. Shareholders of the Company will receive detailed information about the AGM in a management information circular (and, as applicable, the Company expects the Dissident may prepare and send a dissident’s circular in respect of same) in advance of the AGM. Shareholders should read the Company’s meeting materials carefully before reaching a decision with regard to their votes. In the meantime, there is no need for shareholders to take any action.
