Shareholders Approve Resolution to Delist Shares of Major Precious
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Sept. 13, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Major Precious Metals Corp. (“Major Precious Metals” or the “Company”) (CSE:SIZE | OTC:SIZYF | FRANKFURT:3EZ), announces that all matters presented for approval at its annual general and special shareholders' meeting (the "Meeting") held on September 12, 2022 were approved. A total of 101,569,242 common shares representing 38.56% of the Company's issued and outstanding common shares were voted in person or represented by proxy at the Meeting.
In particular, resolutions approving the following matters were passed:
Delisting: The delisting of the Company's shares from the NEO Exchange (“Exchange”), with 101,524,042 votes (representing 99.96% of votes cast) in favour by a majority of the shareholders that voted. The Company's board of directors determined that a voluntary delisting (the “Delisting”) of the Company's common shares from the Exchange due to prolonged weak market conditions, owed greatly to a continued market-driven disconnect between the share price of the Company, relative to its believed true asset value, would be in the best interests of its shareholders and the Company in order to preserve its current business.
The Exchange has accepted the Company's application to delist its common shares from the Neo Exchange effective at the close of business on October 7, 2022. Despite the Delisting, the Company will continue to be subject to ongoing disclosure and other obligations as a reporting issuer under applicable securities legislation in Canada.
Election of Directors: The election of the individuals noted below. The report on proxies provided by the Company's transfer agent indicated the following:
