At the Annual Meeting, KPMG LLP was reappointed as the Company’s auditors to hold office until the next annual meeting of shareholders of the Company and the directors were authorized to fix their remuneration.
Steven Scott did not receive the requisite majority of votes cast in respect of his election and in accordance to the Company’s Majority Voting Policy, Mr. Scott has tendered his resignation to the Board of Directors. As provided for in the Majority Voting Policy, the Board of Directors considered the resignation tendered by Mr. Scott and after consideration of all factors that the Board of Directors deems relevant, the Board has determined that there are exceptional circumstances that warrant the Board not to accept the resignation of Mr. Scott and Mr. Scott will continue to serve as a director of the Corporation. The Board of Directors has reviewed and considered the situation carefully and the factors taken into account by the Board of Directors in reaching this determination include the fact that the primary cause for certain shareholders advisory group’s recommendation against Mr. Scott’s election is the overboarding situation and Mr. Scott has undertaken to the Board to resolve his overboarding situation within a reasonable period, Mr. Scott’s in-depth knowledge of the business sector that the Corporation is focused on developing and his experience and skills in the context of the overall skill matrix of the Board. The Board will monitor the resolution of the overboarding situation and, if the situation is not resolved satisfactorily, will ask Mr. Scott to retender his resignation.
