TORONTO, Jan. 25, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Red Pine Exploration Inc. (TSX-V: RPX, OTCQB: RDEXF) (“Red Pine” or the “Company”) is pleased to report that at the annual and special meeting of shareholders held on January 25, 2022, all resolutions proposed to shareholders were duly approved.
At the meeting, the shareholders:
- elected Drew Anwyll, Andrew Baumen, Nils Engelstad, Rachel Goldman, Paul Martin and Quentin Yarie as directors of the Company; and
- reappointed MNP, LLP, Chartered Professional Accountants as the Company’s auditors until the next annual meeting of shareholders, and to authorize the directors to set their renumeration.
Effective December 14, 2021, the board of directors of Red Pine amended the Company’s stock option plan from a “rolling” plan to a “fixed number” plan. This amendment has had the effect of reducing the number of stock options available to the Company to use as part of its compensation program. 8,050,149 common shares have been reserved for granting by the Board, or 7% of the issued and outstanding common shares as of the date of such amendment. Previously the Company had a “rolling” 10% stock option plan, which, under the TSX-V policies, required annual approval by shareholders. A “fixed number” plan that reserves not more than 10% of the outstanding shares does not require shareholder approval under applicable TSXVE policies.
All existing outstanding stock options will continue to be governed by the Plan. As of the date of December 15, 2021, there were 3,587,771 stock options outstanding, leaving an aggregate of 4,462,378 to be granted under the Plan.
Effective January 25, 2022, the Board of Directors has granted an aggregate of 1,869,000 stock options to directors, officers, employees and consultants of the Corporation pursuant to the Stock Option Plan. Each stock option is exercisable to acquire one common share of the Corporation at a price of $0.47 per share, vest over 36 months and expire on the fifth anniversary of the date of grant. The grant of options is subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange.
