Vancouver, Canada, July 13th, 2022 – Burin Gold Corp. (“Burin Gold” or the “Company”) (TSX-V: BURG) announces that all motions presented to shareholders of the Company were approved at the Company’s Annual and Special Meeting of Shareholders (the “Meeting”) held on July 13th, 2022.
Long term incentive plan
Shareholders have approved the Company’s amended 10% rolling long term incentive plan (the “LTIP”) at the Meeting. The maximum number of common shares which may be issued under the LTIP is 10% of the Company’s issued and outstanding share capital at the date of grant. The LTIP has a ‟rolling” limit, as the number of shares reserved for issuance pursuant to the grant of stock options and restricted share units will automatically increase as the Company issued and outstanding share capital increases. The limit includes outstanding stock options and restricted share units previously granted. The LTIP is subject to annual approval of shareholders and the TSX Venture Exchange (“TSXV”).
A copy of the LTIP was appended to the Company’s information circular pertaining to the Meeting dated June 8, 2022 (the “Circular”) and is available under the Company’s profile on SEDAR.
As further discussed in the Circular, the principal amendments to the LTIP ensure compliance with the revised Policy 4.4 of the TSXV and include: (i) defining grant limits to certain participants who are eligible to receive grants of stock options and restricted share units under the LTIP; (ii) amending the exercise provisions to permit “net exercise” by holders of option; (iii) share capital adjustments are subject to the prior approval of the TSXV except where they relate to consolidations or splits, and (iv) amending the expiry provisions to provide that should the expiry date for an option fall within a Black-Out (as defined in the LTIP), such expiry shall be automatically extended to that day which is the tenth business day after the end of the Black-Out.”
