VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Aug. 28, 2012) - Mundoro Capital Inc. (TSX VENTURE:MUN) ("Mundoro" or the "Company") today announced that at the annual and special general meeting of shareholders held in Vancouver on August 27, 2012, shareholders voted to elect John J. Hoey, Teo Dechev, Richard Moores and Michael Calyniuk to the board.
Shareholders also voted to: reappoint the auditors and authorize the directors to fix their remuneration; set the number of directors of the Company at four; and ratify and confirm the Company's shareholder rights plan agreement dated as of June 18, 2012 between the Company and Computershare Trust Company of Canada, as rights agent.
Mundoro's board would like to express its gratitude to its shareholders for their support.
The Company also notes, with a great degree of frustration, that shareholders closely associated with the dissident voted in substantial numbers against the dissident's proposal to set the number of directors at five. The Company believes that the dissident group had planned to vote down their own resolution on setting the board size, resulting in the board size being set at 4. Had the dissident received enough votes for the election of his two nominees, the board would have been deadlocked and defacto the dissident group would have achieved board control. The Company believes this gamesmanship represents a clear pattern of behaviour on the part of the dissident group.
Fortunately, shareholders voted against this result and for management's current growth strategy.
The dissident group also voted against the proposed amendment to the Company's Articles to include an advance notice provision to provide shareholders of the Company with clear description on the nomination of directors, which formed the very basis for the dissident's unsuccessful petition before the British Columbia Supreme Court.
Teo Dechev, CEO and President of Mundoro commented, "We have heard from many shareholders during this process and thank shareholders for their vote to support the current growth strategy of the Company. We look forward to continuing to successfully execute for all shareholders and achieve our goal to use our international expertise in mining, finance, exploration and project development, together with our skilled and dedicated staff to grow your Company in value with the existing projects and pursue new opportunities."
On behalf of the Company,
Teo Dechev, Chief Executive Officer, President and Director
