Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - July 19, 2019) - Cypherpunk Holdings Inc. (CSE: HODL) ("Cypherpunk" or the "Company") announces that the board of directors of the Company has adopted a new general By-Law No. 1 ("General By-Law") relating to general corporate matters, which repeals and replaces the Company's existing general corporate by-law.
The General By-Law is designed to ensure that the Company's general by-law is consistent with applicable corporate law and evolved corporate governance practices, and also to facilitate orderly and efficient shareholder meetings. To this end, the General By-Law includes provisions (the "Advance Notice Provisions") that establish a framework for advance notice of nominations of directors by shareholders of the Company in connection with shareholder meetings.
Among other things, the Advance Notice Provisions fix a deadline by which holders of record or beneficial holders of common shares of the Company must submit director nominations to the Company prior to any annual or special meeting of shareholders and set forth the information that shareholders must include in the notice to the Company. In the case of an annual meeting of shareholders, notice to the Company must generally be provided not less than 30 days and not more than 65 days prior to the date of the annual meeting. In the case of a special meeting of shareholders (which is not also an annual meeting), notice to the Company must be provided no 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.
The General By-Law is effective as of July 18, 2019 and will be placed before shareholders for confirmation at the next annual and special meeting of shareholders of the Company, which is scheduled to be held on September 4, 2019. According to the provisions of the Business Corporations Act (Ontario), the General By-Law will cease to be effective unless it is confirmed by a resolution adopted by a majority of the votes cast, in person or by proxy, at the meeting.
The full text of the General By-Law is available under the Company's profile at www.sedar.com.
