Vancouver, BC / ACCESSWIRE / June 17, 2014 / NanoStruck Technologies Inc. (the "Company" or "NanoStruck") (CSE:NSK) (OTCQX: NSKTF) (Frankfurt: 8NSK) approved an Advance Notice Policy effective May 22, 2014. The Advance Notice Policy is currently in effect and will be presented to shareholders of the Company in the form of amendments to the Company's articles at the Company's annual general and special meeting of shareholders to be held on June 20, 2014.
As set out in the Information Circular that was mailed to shareholders and posted with the Company's public filings on www.sedar.com on May 29, 2014, the Advance Notice Policy includes, among other things, a provision that requires advance notice be given to the Company in circumstances where nominations of persons for election to the Board are made by shareholders of the Company other than pursuant to: (i) a requisition of a meeting made pursuant to the provisions of the Business Corporations Act (British Columbia) (the "Act"); or (ii) a shareholder proposal made pursuant to the provisions of the Act.
The Advance Notice Policy sets a deadline by which holders of record of common shares in the capital of the Company must submit director nominations to the Company prior to any annual general or special meeting of shareholders, sets forth the information that a shareholder must include in the notice to the Company, and establishes 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 general meeting of 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. However, in the event that the annual general 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 general meeting was made, notice may be made not later than the close of business on the tenth day following such public announcement.
In the case of a special meeting of shareholders (which is not also an annual general meeting) notice to the Company must be made not later than the close of business on the fifteenth day following the day on which the first public announcement of the date of the special meeting was made.
In accordance with the Advance Notice Policy, the deadline by which holders of record of common shares in the capital of the Company must submit director nominations to the Company prior to the annual general meeting to be held on June 20, 2014 was June 9, 2014. The Board has decided to extend the deadline to 5 PM Pacific Time, Wednesday June 18, 2014. No director nominations from shareholders will be accepted for the June 20, 2014, AGM after that time.
About the Company
NanoStruck Technologies Inc. is a Canadian Company with a suite of technologies that remove molecular sized particles using patented absorptive organic polymers. These versatile biomaterials are derived from crustacean shells or plant fibers, depending on requirements of their usage. Acting as molecular sponges, the nanometer-sized polymers are custom programmed to absorb specific particles for remediation or retrieval purposes. These could be used to clean out acids, hydrocarbons, pathogens, oils and toxins in water via its NanoPure solutions or to recover precious metal particles in mine tailings, such as gold, silver, platinum, palladium and rhodium using the Company's NanoMet solutions.
By using patented modifications to conventional technologies and adding polymer-based nano-filtration, the Company's offers environmentally safe NanoPure solutions for water purification. The Company uses Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and World Health Organization (WHO) guidelines as a benchmark for water quality and safety to conform to acceptable agricultural or drinking water standards in jurisdictions where the technology is used.
Additionally, the Company's technology can be used to recover precious and base metals from mine tailings, which are the residual material from earlier mining activities. By retrieving valuable metals from old tailing dumps, the Company's NanoMet solutions boosts the value of existing mining assets and reduces the need for new, costly and potentially environmentally harmful exploration and mining.
The Company's current business model is based on either selling water remediation plants or leasing out units and charging customers on a price per liter basis with a negotiated minimum payment per annum. For processing mine tailings, the value of precious metal recovered is shared with tailing site owners on a pre-agreed basis.
