Killi Files Information Circular For Annual & Special Meeting of Shareholders
New York, New York–(May 18, 2021) – Killi Ltd. (TSXV: MYID) (OTCQB: MYIDF) (OTCQB: MYIDD) (“Killi” or the “Company”), a supplier of compliant consumer data to brands & agencies, platforms and data companies, announces the filing of its information circular dated May 18, 2021 (the “Circular) and related meeting materials in connection with the Annual and Special Meeting of Shareholders (the “Meeting”) scheduled to take place virtually on June 23, 2021 at 10:00 a.m. (Toronto time). The Company’s board of directors (the “Board”) has set May 11, 2021 (the “Record Date”) as the record date for determining the shareholders entitled to receive notice and vote at the Meeting.
After taking into account Provincial and Federal guidance regarding public gatherings and social distancing due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Company has elected to hold the Meeting virtually, allowing its shareholders to attend and participate at the Meeting by dialing into the Meeting via telephone or by joining the live webcast. The Company and its management believe that holding the Meeting virtually will proactively protect the health and wellbeing of the Company’s shareholders, management, directors and service partners, while permitting and encouraging shareholder participation at the Meeting. Further details concerning the virtual Meeting are included in the Circular.
In addition to the required annual shareholder approvals regarding the: (i) election of the board of directors of the Company; (ii) re-appointment of the Company’s auditor for the ensuing year; and (iii) ratification of the Company’s rolling stock option plan (the “Option Plan”), Killi will seek shareholder approval for the following matters which require the approval by at least two-thirds (66.6%) of the votes cast by shareholders present by person (virtually) or represented by proxy and entitled to vote at the Meeting, all as more particularly described in the Circular:
- Fixing the number of directors at (5).
- Empowering the Board to determine the number of directors of the Company from time to time, by resolution of the Board, in accordance with subsection 125(3) of the Business Corporations Act (Ontario).
- Authorizing the Board, in its sole discretion, if deemed in the best interests of the Company, to implement, within one year from the Meeting date, a consolidation of all of the issued and outstanding common shares of the Company (“Common Shares”) on the basis of a consolidation ratio to be selected by the Board within a range between two (2) and ten (10) pre-consolidation Common Shares for every one (1) post-consolidation Common Share (the “Consolidation”).
While the Board has no immediate intention to implement a Consolidation and there is no assurance that a Consolidation will be completed, it believes that it is in the best interests of the Company to have the authority to implement a Consolidation for a period of one year from the Meeting date, for the reasons set out in the Circular. In addition to shareholder approval, the Company is required to obtain the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange (the “TSXV”) prior to implementing a Consolidation.
The Company has elected to use the notice-and-access (“Notice-and-Access”) provisions under National Instrument 54-101 Communications with Beneficial Owners of Securities of a Reporting Issuer and National Instrument 51-102 Continuous Disclosure Obligations to distribute Meeting materials to shareholders. Notice-and-Access is a set of rules that allow issuers to post electronic versions of proxy-related materials on SEDAR and on one additional website, rather than mailing paper copies to shareholders. Shareholders have the right to request hard copies of any proxy related materials posted online by the Company under Notice-and-Access.
Meeting materials, including the Circular, will be available under the Company’s profile at www.sedar.com and also at https://investors.killi.io/corporate-governance/investor-materials/ by May 18, 2021. The Company will provide to any shareholder, upon request to Computershare Trust Company of Canada (“Computershare”), the Company’s transfer agent, a paper copy of the Circular and the audited financial statements of the Company for the financial year ended December 31, 2020 or management’s discussion and analysis of the Company filed with the applicable securities regulatory authorities during the past year. In order to allow reasonable time for requesting shareholders to receive and review a paper copy of the Circular or other document prior to the proxy deadline (as specified below), any shareholder who wishes to receive paper copies of any of the Meeting materials should submit their written request to Computershare by June 13, 2021.
The deadline for returning proxies for the Meeting is Monday, June 21, 2021 at 10:00 a.m. (Toronto time). Voting results for the Meeting will be announced after the Meeting and posted on SEDAR.
This announcement is for informational purposes only and does not constitute a solicitation or a proxy.
