Calgary, Alberta–(Newsfile Corp. – February 22, 2021) – Greenstone Capital Corp. (TSXV: GSGS.P) (the “Company” or “Greenstone“), a capital pool company (“CPC“) pursuant to Policy 2.4 (the “CPC Policy“) of the TSX Venture Exchange (the “Exchange“), is pleased to announce that all matters submitted to shareholders for approval as set out in detail in the Company’s management information circular (the “Circular“) dated January 14, 2021 were approved at the special meeting of shareholders of the Company held on February 16, 2021 (the “Meeting“).
At the Meeting, the Company’s shareholders approved certain matters required to be approved in connection with the Company’s previously announced business combination (the “Proposed Transaction“) with Comprehensive Healthcare Solutions Inc. (“CHS“), including approving the board of directors and auditor of the Resulting Issuer (as such term is defined in the CPC Policy) and an amendment to the Company’s articles to create a new class of restricted voting convertible shares and to amend the existing terms of the Company’s common shares.
In addition, and in accordance with the CPC Policy, the Company is pleased to announce that disinterested shareholders of the Company voted in favour of the following resolutions (collectively, the “Disinterested Shareholder Resolutions“):
Resolution Approving the Removal of the Consequences of Failing to Complete a Qualifying Transaction within 24 Months of the Listing Date
Prior to the changes to the CPC Policy introduced by the Exchange on January 1, 2021, there were certain consequences if a CPC had not completed a Qualifying Transaction within 24 months of the CPC’s listing Date. These consequences included a potential for shares to be delisted or suspended, or, subject to the approval of the majority of the Company’s shareholders, transferring shares to list on the NEX and cancelling certain Seed Shares. The new CPC Policy removed these consequences assuming the CPC obtains disinterested shareholder approval approving the change.
Resolution Approving Certain Amendments to the Escrow Agreement
Prior to the changes to the CPC Policy introduced by the Exchange on January 1, 2021, Seed Shares of a CPC were subject to a 36 month escrow in the event the Resulting Issuer (as defined in the CPC Policy) was a Tier 2 issuer. The new CPC Policy permits such escrow period to be 18 months in duration. As a result of the shareholder approval of this resolution, the Company intends to amend its escrow agreement to reduce the escrow period from 36 months to 18 months.
Resolution Authorizing the Payment of Finders Fees to Non-Arm’s Length Parties
The CPC Policy introduced by the Exchange on January 1, 2021 permits the Company to pay finder’s fees to non-arm’s length parties in certain circumstances and in accordance with the CPC Policy. As a result of the shareholder approval of this resolution, the Company may pay finder’s fees to non-arm’s length parties to the CPC.
Approval of the Disinterested Shareholder Resolutions was sought in order for the Company to align certain of its policies with changes to CPC Policy introduced by the Exchange on January 1, 2021. Each of the Disinterested Shareholder Resolutions was approved by 100% of the Company’s shareholders who voted thereon, excluding the votes held by Non-Arm’s Length Parties (as such term is defined in Exchange policy 1.1) and holders of Seed Shares (as such term is defined in Exchange policy 1.1). An aggregate of 2,100,000 votes were excluded from each of the Disinterested Shareholder Resolutions.
Please refer to the Circular for further details with respect to the amendments associated with the Proposed Transaction and the new CPC Policy.
