The Company alerts shareholders that the dissident shareholder news release issued on November 7, 2012 is not from the Company as it incorrectly states the Company is the source. Mundoro, with its strong record of sound corporate governance and of acting in the best interests of shareholders generally, firmly stands behind all procedures followed during the Annual General and Special Meeting of shareholders held on August 27, 2012 in Vancouver (the "AGM"). The recent allegations made by certain dissident shareholders who were unsuccessful in their attempt to, first, ambush the AGM, then solicit sufficient shareholder support to replace the board of directors (the "Board") at the AGM, are without merit. Mr. John Hoey, Chairman of the Board, commented, "Once again, we would like to take this opportunity to express our gratitude to the shareholders of Mundoro for their support at the AGM. The company continues to move forward and management is executing on its strategic plans for the benefit of all shareholders."
As part the Company's annual corporate governance review, the Board has adopted a comprehensive set of corporate governance policies including, among others, Board Charter, Audit Committee Charter, Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee Charter, Compensation Committee Charter, Code of Business Conduct & Ethics, Whistleblower Policy, Disclosure, Confidentiality and Insider Trading Policy, and an Advance Notice Policy. The corporate governance policies were adopted by the Board on November 8, 2012 and are effective as of the date approved. All governance polices will be made available on the Company's website. The Advance Notice Policy will be submitted for shareholder approval at the next Annual and Special General Meeting of the Company. The same Advance Notice Policy received majority support of shareholders at the AGM, but did not attain the two-thirds vote required to adopt the Policy as an amendment to the Company's Articles of Incorporation.
In other business of the Company, the Board approved a grant of 105,000 stock options to independent directors of the Company and 150,000 stock options to a contractor of the Company. The options will be granted at closing price on November 14, 2012, when the Company's current blackout will be lifted. The options are exercisable for a period of five years until November 8, 2017.
