Roughrider Exploration Limited ("Roughrider") announced that at its annual and special general meeting held October 31, 2014, shareholders voted to adopt amendments to Roughrider's Articles of Incorporation to include advance notice provisions (the "Advance Notice Provisions").
The Advance Notice Provisions include, among other things, a provision that requires advance notice be given to Roughrider in circumstances where nominations of persons for election to the Board are made by shareholders of Roughrider.
The Advance Notice Provisions set a deadline by which shareholders must submit nominations (a "Notice") for the election of directors to Roughrider prior to any annual or special meeting of shareholders. The Advance Notice Provisions also set forth the information that a shareholder must include in the Notice to Roughrider, and establish 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, a Notice must be provided to Roughrider not less than 30 days and not 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 50 days after the date on which the first public announcement of the date of the annual meeting was made, a Notice must be provided to Roughrider not later than the close of business on the 10th day following such public announcement.
In the case of a special meeting of shareholders (which is not also an annual meeting), a Notice to Roughrider must be made not later than the close of business on the 15th day following the day on which the first public announcement of the date of the special meeting was made.
A copy of Roughrider's Amended Articles of Incorporation containing the Advance Notice Provisions is available under Roughrider's profile on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.
