The By-Law fixes a deadline by which director nominations must be submitted to the Company prior to any annual or special general meeting of the shareholders of the Company and sets forth certain information that must be included in that notice to the Company. Only persons nominated in accordance with the procedures set out in the By-Law will be eligible for election as director of the Company.
In the case of an Annual General Meeting of the Shareholders (“AGM”), notice to the Company must be made not less than 30 days and not more than 65 days prior to the date of the AGM. In the event that the AGM 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 AGM is made, notice may be made not later than the close of business on the 10th day following the date of the announcement.
