TORONTO, March 07, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- BlueRush Media Group Corp. (the “Company”) (TSX-V:BTV) is pleased to announce that its shareholders (the “Shareholders”) have voted today at the annual and special meeting of Shareholders (the “Meeting”) in favour of all matters put to Shareholders at the Meeting.
In addition, the board of directors of the Company has approved an option grant of 1,750,000 stock options, expiring in 5 years, to Mr. John Eckert, a director of the Company, at an exercise price of $0.12. All options issued will be subject to a four month hold.
All annual matters that were put before Shareholders at the Meeting were approved, as was the approval to change the name of the Company to BlueRush Inc. and the adoption of an advance notice by-law (the “Advance Notice By-law”) regarding director elections. The Company’s stock symbol (BTV) will not change.
The purpose of the Advance Notice By-law is to provide a clear process for the shareholders, directors and management to follow when nominating directors of the Company. Such a by-law will ensure that shareholders receive adequate notice of director nominations and sufficient information regarding all director nominees and to allow shareholders to register an informed vote after having been afforded reasonable time for appropriate deliberation. The Advance Notice By-law, among other things, includes a provision that requires advance notice to the Company in certain circumstances where nominations of persons for election to the board of directors are made by shareholders of the Company. This Advance Notice By-law also sets a deadline by which director nominations must be submitted to the Company prior to any annual general or special meeting of the shareholders and also sets out the required information that must be included in the notice to the Company. No person will be eligible for election as a director of the Company unless nominated in accordance with the Advance Notice By-law.
In the case of an annual meeting of the shareholders, notice to the Company must be made not less than 30 days and not more than 65 days prior to the date of the annual general meeting. If the annual meeting is being held on a date that is less than 40 days following the date on which the first public announcement of the meeting was made, notice may be made 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) called for the purpose of electing directors, notice to the Company 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. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the board of directors may, in its sole discretion, waive any requirement of the Advance Notice By-law.
For more information on the matters voted on at the Meeting, please see the Company’s management information circular dated January 26, 2018, which has been filed on the Company’s profile on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.
