KWG Shareholders’ Meeting Concludes26 Jun 2013
Montreal, Canada – June 26, 2013 – The postponed meeting of the shareholders of KWG Resources Inc. (TSXV: KWG) was concluded this morning. Cynthia Thomas, Douglas Flett, Thomas Pladsen and Frank Smeenk were re-elected as directors and Frank Smeenk and Thomas Masters were then respectively re-appointed as the Company’s President and Chief Financial Officer.
The meeting had remarkable shareholder participation, with almost 380 million of the outstanding 691 million shares having been voted on the resolutions put before the shareholders. The proposal to amend the Company’s articles to let all shareholders wishing to do so acquire with each fifty of their present shares one new multiple-voting share (provided that these may be converted back into the fifty subordinate voting shares at any subsequent time of their choosing), was defeated.
Shareholders were asked to approve a change of jurisdiction so that the law governing KWG’s constitution will be the federal Canada Business Corporations Act (“CBCA”). This resolution was passed by the required majority exceeding two-thirds of the shares voted. Management must now determine whether to proceed with the continuance to the CBCA as Cliffs Natural Resources Inc. had served prior notice of its intention to seek a repurchase of its shares by the Company if the continuance is approved and adopted.
The other matters before the meeting were passed by the necessary majorities.
