Among other things, the Policy fixes a deadline by which holders of record of common shares of Klondex must submit director nominations to the Secretary of the Corporation prior to any annual or special meeting of shareholders and sets forth the specific information that a shareholder must include in the written notice to the Secretary of the Corporation for an effective nomination to occur. No person will be eligible for election as a director of the Corporation unless nominated in accordance with the provisions of the Policy.
In the case of an annual meeting of shareholders, notice to the Corporation must be made not less than 30 nor more than 65 days prior to the date of the annual meeting; provided, however, that in the event 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 Corporation must be made not 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 Policy is effective and in full force and effect as of the date it was approved. In accordance with the terms of the Policy, the Policy will be put to shareholders of the Corporation for approval at the annual and special meeting of the shareholders of the Corporation to be held on June 18, 2013 (the "Shareholders Meeting"), and if the policy is not confirmed at the meeting by ordinary resolution of shareholders, the Policy will terminate and be of no further force and effect following the termination of the Shareholders Meeting.
In compliance with the Policy, any director nominations for the Shareholders Meeting must be received by the Corporation no later than the close of business on May 17, 2013.
