The purpose of the Advance Notice By-law is to provide shareholders, directors and management of Bison Gold with a clear framework for nominating directors.
Among other things, the Advance Notice By-law includes a provision that requires advance notice to be given to Bison Gold in circumstances where nominations of persons for election to the Board are made by shareholders of Bison Gold other than pursuant to: (i) a requisition of a meeting made pursuant to the provisions of the Business Corporations Act (Ontario) (the "Act"); or (ii) a shareholder proposal made pursuant to the provisions of the Act. The Advance Notice By-law fixes a deadline by which director nominations must be submitted to Bison Gold prior to any annual or special meeting of shareholders and sets forth the information that must be included in the notice to Bison Gold in order for a nominee to be eligible for election.
In the case of an annual meeting, notice to Bison Gold must be given no fewer than 30 nor more than 65 days prior to the date of the meeting; provided that if the meeting is to be held on a date that is fewer than 50 days after the date on which the first public announcement of the date of the meeting was made, notice may be given no later than the close of business on the 10th day following such public announcement.
In the case of a special general meeting that is not also an annual meeting, notice to Bison Gold must be made no later than the close of business on the 15th day following the day on which the first public announcement of the date of the special meeting was made. The Advance Notice By-Law is effective as of the date it was approved. In order for the Advance By-Law to remain in effect following conclusion of the Meeting, it must be ratified by an ordinary resolution of the shareholders at the Meeting.
