Toronto, Ontario, June 8, 2015) — Galway Metals Inc. (TSX-V: GWM) (“Galway”) advises that under the laws of New Brunswick, which is Galway’s jurisdiction of incorporation, shareholders have “cumulative voting rights”. Pursuant to these rights, each shareholder entitled to vote at an election of directors, has the right to cast a number of votes equal to the number of votes attached to the shares held by him multiplied by the number of directors to be elected, and he may cast all such votes in favour of one candidate or distribute them among the candidates in any manner. This right was not disclosed in the amended management information circular or accompanying amended proxy, previously sent to shareholders.
In light of the fact that the number of directors nominated for election at the annual and special meeting of shareholders that was to have taken place on June 10, 2015 exceeds the number of board positions available, the management and Board of Directors of Galway believe that it is in the best interests of the shareholders to cancel the meeting of shareholders and provide updated materials to the shareholders in order to ensure that all shareholders have an opportunity to express their wishes in respect of the election of directors in a fully informed manner.
As a result, Galway is regrettably cancelling the meeting to be held on June 10, 2015 and will set a new shareholder meeting date shortly. The announcement of the new date will be followed by revised materials being sent to all shareholders.
