TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - June 25, 2012) - The Concerned Shareholders reported today:
"We are thrilled by the overwhelming wave of retail support that we have received so far. However, every vote still counts in order to ensure our victory at the meeting on Thursday June 28th. Today is the last day to vote. Please see the instructions below to vote your proxy online no later than 5 p.m. today."
"We have already demonstrated up to and including our agreement in principle, on which Paradigm Capital Inc. is advising, for a $50 million investment in Algar Lake that we will build major value very quickly, which will result in an upward re-rating in the shares of AOS. When we presented this deal we were attacked by management who have not been able to attract any investment into the asset base."
IT IS NOT TOO LATE TO CHANGE YOUR VOTE IF YOU HAVE VOTED THE BLUE MANAGEMENT PROXY, AND NOW WANT TO SUPPORT THE CONCERNED SHAREHOLDERS' NEW BOARD. PLEASE SEE INSTRUCTIONS BELOW.
