As the proposals involved amendments to the Company's articles of incorporation, approval from a majority of the outstanding shares of Silver Bull common stock was required. As a majority in favour was not received for either proposal, neither proposal was approved.
President and CEO, Tim Barry stated: “We would like to thank those shareholders who took the time to vote on these matters that are very important to the future growth and advancement of the Company, however also express our great disappointment that shareholders owning half of the Company’s outstanding shares chose not to vote on what should be considered routine and uncontroversial matters. As mentioned in previous news releases, leading independent proxy advisor firms Institutional Shareholder Services (ISS) and Glass Lewis & Co. had recommended shareholders vote “FOR” both proposals.
So it is very clear to all shareholders, management must now consider all available options for our next step. We see great potential for the Company’s Sierra Mojada Project as well as in Kazakhstan with the Beskauga Project, should it pass due diligence, and we will seek to find alternative ways to finance and move these projects forward.”
Full details of the proposals are fully described in the Company’s definitive proxy statement filed on November 6, 2020 available on SEDAR at www.sedar.com, and on EDGAR at www.sec.gov.
