Freshii Provides Updates on Timing of Annual Meeting of Shareholders
TORONTO, May 19, 2020 // GLOBE NEWSWIRE // - Freshii Inc. (“Freshii” or the “Company”) (TSX: FRII) today announced that, after careful consideration and in accordance with applicable corporate and securities laws and stock exchange rules, the Company has determined to hold its 2020 annual meeting of shareholders after June 30, 2020 on a date to be determined. Freshii will therefore rely on the temporary blanket relief granted by the Ontario Securities Commission in Ontario Instrument 51-504 Temporary Exemption from Certain Requirements to File or Send Securityholder Materials (and equivalent relief granted by the other provinces and territories of Canada). This allows Freshii to include the executive compensation disclosure required under National Instrument 51-102 Continuous Disclosure Obligations in its management information circular for that meeting of shareholders as it has in previous years. Freshii remains focused on protecting the health of Freshii’s customers and employees and on supporting its network of restaurants and franchise partners in response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
