Robix Announces Adoption of Advance Notice By-Law

LETHBRIDGE, ALBERTA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/29/14 -- Robix Alternative Fuels Inc. ("Robix" or the "Corporation") (CSE: RZX) announced today that the Board of Directors of Robix has approved the adoption of an advance notice by-law (the "Advance Notice By-law"), which requires advance notice to Robix in circumstances where nominations of persons for election to the Board are made by shareholders other than pursuant to a requisition of a meeting made pursuant to the provisions of the Business Corporations Act (Alberta) ("ABCA") or a shareholder proposal made pursuant to the provisions of the ABCA.

Among other things, the Advance Notice By-law fixes a deadline by which shareholders must submit a notice of director nominations to Robix prior to any annual or special meeting of shareholders where directors are to be elected and sets forth the information that a shareholder must include in the notice for it to be valid. In the case of an annual general meeting of shareholders, notice to the Chief Executive Officer of Robix must be made not less than 30 nor more than 65 days prior to the date of the annual general meeting of shareholders; provided, however, that in the event that the annual general meeting of shareholders is called for at a date that is less than 50 days after the date (the "Notice Date") on which the first public announcement of the date of the annual meeting was made, notice by the nominating shareholder must be given not later than the close of business on the tenth (10th) day following the Notice Date. In the case of a special meeting (which is not also an annual general meeting) of shareholders called for the purpose of electing directors (whether or not called for other purposes), notice to the Chief Executive Officer of Robix must be made not later than the close of business on the fifteenth (15th) day following the date on which the first public announcement of the date of the special meeting of shareholders was made.

The purpose of the Advance Notice By-law is to foster a variety of interests of the shareholders and Robix by ensuring that all shareholders, including those participating in a meeting by proxy rather than in person, receive adequate notice of the nominations to be considered at a meeting and can thereby exercise their voting rights in an informed manner. In addition, the Advance Notice By-law is intended to provide a reasonable framework for shareholders to nominate directors and should assist in facilitating an orderly and efficient meeting process.

At the next annual general and special meeting of shareholders of Robix to be held on May 30, 2014, the shareholders will be asked to confirm and ratify the Advance Notice By-law. A copy of the Advance Notice By-law has been filed under Robix's SEDAR profile at www.sedar.com.

Fundamentally, SDN is still mostly about network plumbing. While plumbing may be useful to tinker with, what you can do with your plumbing is far more intriguing. A rigid interpretation of SDN confines it to Layers 2 and 3, and that's reasonable. But SDN opens opportunities for novel constructions in Layers 4 to 7 that solve real operational problems in data centers. "Data center," in fact, might become anachronistic - data is everywhere, constantly on the move, seemingly always overflowing. Net...

Even though it’s now Microservices Journal, long-time fans of SOA World Magazine can take comfort in the fact that the URL – soa.sys-con.com – remains unchanged. And that’s no mistake, as microservices are really nothing more than a new and improved take on the Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) best practices we struggled to hammer out over the last decade. Skeptics, however, might say that this change is nothing more than an exercise in buzzword-hopping. SOA is passé, and now that people are ...
