ISS Recommends Shareholders Vote Against the Requisition

 

 

Stratex, the AIM-quoted gold and exploration company, wishes to report that Institutional Shareholder Services Inc. (ISS), the leading corporate governance and proxy advisory firm, has today published a proxy advisory report for the general meeting of the Company convened for the 1 November 2017.

 

The recommendation from ISS is that Stratex shareholders VOTE AGAINST all the resolutions to be put forward at the general meeting.  These resolutions propose the replacement of both the current Stratex Chairman and Chief Executive Officer with David Hall and Paul Foord, and termination of the Crusader Resources merger.

 

Stratex CEO Marcus Engelbrecht, said: 

"We are pleased that ISS has supported the Board decision in recommending that Stratex shareholders vote against all resolutions proposed by the requisition party.  This level of endorsement demonstrates the lack of foundation behind the requisitioning shareholders' resolutions and the strength of the proposed Crusader Resources acquisition."

 

As previously announced by the Company on 4 October 2017, the Circular containing the notice convening the General Meeting and explaining the reasons for the Board's recommendation has been posted to Shareholders. A copy of the Circular is also available on the Company's website at http://www.stratexinternational.com/media-centre/.
