Adoption of Shareholder Rights Plan

Shareholders approved the renewal of the omnibus equity incentive plan dated June 26, 2019 (the “Omnibus Plan”), which Omnibus Plan was previously approved by Shareholders at a meeting held on August 16, 2019. The Omnibus Plan is an “evergreen” equity based compensation plan pursuant to the rules of the TSX and therefore Shareholder approval is required every three years in respect of the Omnibus Plan since the plan involves the issuance from treasury or potential issuance from treasury of securities of the Corporation.

The Omnibus Plan is an efficient and effective plan to provide the Corporation with a share-related mechanism to: (a) advance the interests of the Corporation by enhancing the ability of the Corporation and its subsidiaries to attract, motivate and retain employees, officers, directors, and consultants, (b) reward such persons for their sustained contributions and (c) encourage such persons to take into account the long-term corporate performance of the Corporation.

The Omnibus Plan must be reconfirmed at the Company’s annual meeting of shareholders to be held in 2025 and every third annual meeting thereafter or it will expire. The Omnibus Plan may also be terminated at an earlier time in accordance with the terms of the Omnibus Plan.
