July 15, 2014 (Source: BusinessWire) — Stans Energy Corp. (TSX-V: HRE, OTCQX: HREEF), (“Stans Energy” or the “Company”), reports that its Annual General and Special meeting will be held on September 25, 2014 at 1pm.

Start Time – 1pm

The Company also announces the adoption by its board of directors (the “Board“) of amendments to its by-laws to reduce the requirement for resident Canadian directors to 25% resident Canadian directors, and to include advance notice provisions (the “Advance Notice Provisions“) requiring that advance notice be provided to the Company in circumstances where nominations of persons for election to the Board are made by shareholders other than pursuant to: (i) a requisition to call a shareholders meeting; or (ii) a shareholder proposal, in each case as made in accordance with the provisions of the Business Corporations Act (Ontario) (the “Act“).
Among other things, the Advance Notice Provisions fix a deadline by which shareholders must notify the Company of nominations of persons for election to the Board and provide that the same information about the proposed nominee as one would be required to include in a dissident proxy circular under applicable securities laws must be provided to the Company by the deadline. In the case of an annual meeting of shareholders, notice to the Company must be made not less than 30 and not more than 65 days prior to the date of the annual meeting; provided however, that in the event that the annual 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 meeting was made, notice may be made not later than the close of business on the 10th day following such public announcement. In the case of a special meeting of shareholders (which is not also an annual meeting) notice to the Company must be made no later than the close of business on the 15th day following the day on which the first public announcement of the date of the special meeting was made.
The Advance Notice Provisions provide a clear process for shareholders to follow to nominate directors and set out a reasonable timeframe for nominee submissions along with a requirement for accompanying information. The purpose of the Advance Notice Provisions is to treat all shareholders fairly by ensuring that all shareholders, including those participating in a meeting by proxy rather than in person, receive adequate notice of the nominations to be considered at a meeting and can thereby exercise their voting rights in an informed manner. In addition, the Advance Notice Provisions should assist in facilitating an orderly and efficient meeting process.

The Amendments are effective immediately. In accordance with the provisions of the Act, the Amendments will be subject to confirmation by shareholders at the Company’s next annual and special meeting of shareholders (the “Meeting“). The Amendments will apply to the Meeting. If the Amendments are not confirmed at the Meeting, they will cease to be effective.
