VANCOUVER, British Columbia, May 24, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sabina Gold & Silver Corp. (“Sabina”) or (the “Company”) (SBB – TSX/ SGSVF - OTCQX) reports that it has filed an amended and restated Annual Information Form (the “AIF”) to include the requisite Audit Committee disclosure which had inadvertently been omitted from the original filing.
After review of the Company’s materials for the Company’s upcoming Annual General and Special Meeting of Shareholders (June 6, 2019), proxy advisors ISS and Glass Lewis recommended Withhold votes for members of the Audit Committee (ISS) and a Withhold vote for the Chairman of the Audit Committee (Glass Lewis) as the 2018 Auditor’s fees had not been disclosed in the Company’s AIF.
This was an inadvertent oversight on the part of the Company.
The amended AIF has been filed with the fees included as set out below:
External Auditor Service Fees (By Category)
- Set forth below are details of certain services billed to the Company by its external auditor in each of the last two fiscal years for audit services:
|Audit Fees(1)||Audit-Related Fees||Tax Fees(2)||All Other Fees|
- The increase in 2018 Audit Fees resulted from additional interim review fees and advisory services related to prospectus filings
- Tax compliance and general tax advisory services
The Company appreciates Glass Lewis and ISS for bringing this oversight to our attention.
