The Company further announces the Board of Directors has approved the implementation of a restricted share unit plan (“RSU Plan”), subject to receipt of final approval by the Canadian Securities Exchange and ratification by the Company's shareholders at the next annual meeting thereof.
The RSU Plan is established as a vehicle by which equity-based incentives may be granted to eligible employees, consultants, directors and officers of the Company. The maximum number of RSUs issuable under the RSU Plan is up to 20% of the issued and outstanding common shares provided however that at no time may the number of RSUs issuable under the RSU Plan, together with the number of common shares issuable under options that are outstanding under the Company's Stock Option Plan, exceed 20% of the issued and outstanding common shares as at the date of a grant under the RSU Plan or the Stock Option Plan, as the case may be.
