VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 09/18/13 -- Fancamp Exploration Ltd. ("Fancamp" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:FNC) announces the approval by its board of directors (the "Board") of an advance notice policy (the "Advance Notice Policy") on September 16, 2013. The Advance Notice Policy includes, among other things, a provision which requires that advance notice be given to the Company in circumstances where nominations of persons for election to the Board are made by shareholders of the Company other than pursuant to: (i) a requisition of a meeting made pursuant to the provisions of the Business Corporations Act (British Columbia) (the "Act"); or (ii) a shareholder proposal made pursuant to the provisions of the Act.
The Board has adopted the Advance Notice Policy to ensure, among other things, that all of the shareholders are provided with sufficient notice of the proposed alternative nominees well in advance of any annual or special meeting and that all of the shareholders are given ample opportunity to vote on a fully informed basis.
Additionally, the Advance Notice Policy sets a deadline by which holders of record of common shares of the Company must submit director nominations to the Company prior to any annual or special meeting of shareholders, sets forth the information that a shareholder must include in the notice to the Company, and establishes the form in which the shareholder must submit the notice for that notice to be in proper written form.
In the case of an annual meeting of shareholders, notice to the Company must be made not less than 30 days nor more than 65 days prior to the date of the annual meeting. However, in the event that the annual meeting is to be held on a date that is less than 40 days after the date on which the first public announcement of the date of the annual meeting was made, notice may be made not later than the close of business on the tenth (10th) day following such public announcement.
In the case of a special meeting of shareholders (which is not also an annual meeting) notice to the Company must be made not later than the close of business on the fifteenth (15th) day following the day on which the first public announcement of the date of the special meeting was made.
The Advance Notice Policy is in full force and effect as of the date it was approved. In accordance with the terms of the Advance Notice Policy, the Advance Notice Policy will be put to shareholders of the Company for approval at the next Annual and Special Meeting of Shareholders of the Company (the "Meeting") which is scheduled for October 25, 2013. Accordingly, at the Meeting, shareholders of the Company will, among other things, be asked to approve an ordinary resolution approving the Advance Notice Policy. If approved at the Meeting, the Advance Notice Policy will continue to be effective in accordance with its terms. The Advance Notice Policy will be subject to an annual review, and will reflect changes as required by securities regulatory agencies or stock exchanges, or so as to meet industry standards. If not approved at the Meeting, the Advance Notice Policy will terminate and be of no further force and effect from and after the termination of the Meeting.
For purposes of the Meeting, in accordance with the terms of the Advance Notice Policy, the Board has determined that notice of nominations of persons for election to the Board at the Meeting must be made by September 25, 2013. Such notice must be in the form, and given in the manner, prescribed by the Advance Notice Policy.
