Poll results of annual and special general meeting held on June 24, 2019 (Hong Kong time) / June 23, 2019 (Calgary time) and retirement of independent non-executive director

Reference is made to the notice (the “Notice”) of the annual and special general meeting of shareholders (the “General Meeting”) of Sunshine Oilsands Ltd. (the “Company”) and the accompanying form of proxy, all dated May 23, 2019.

Unless the context requires otherwise, terms used herein shall have the same meanings as those defined in the Company’s management information circular dated May 23, 2019 (the “Circular”).

Due to Mr. Hong Luo’s resignation as Director of the Company on June 3, 2019 and the passing away of Mr. Raymond Shengti Fong, Resolution number 2 as stated in the Notice was amended as: “to fix the number of directors to be elected at the Meeting at six (6). ”  and the resolutions numbered 3 (f) and 3 (g) relating to the re-election of Messrs. Hong Luo and Raymond Shengti Fong as Directors of the Company for the ensuing year were removed.


The Board wishes to announce that, save and except for the resolutions relating to the re-election of Messrs. Hong Luo and Raymond Shengti Fong as Directors, all other resolutions as set out in the Notice were duly passed by the Shareholders by way of poll at the General Meeting. Computershare Hong Kong Investor Services Limited, the Company’s branch share registrar in Hong Kong, was appointed as the scrutineer for the vote-taking at the General Meeting.

Poll results in respect of all the resolutions proposed at the General Meeting are set out below: 

As at the date of the General Meeting, the total number of shares in issue of the Company was 6,135,846,624 Shares, which was the total number of Shares entitling the Shareholders to attend and vote for or against the resolutions at the General Meeting. There were no restrictions on any Shareholders to cast votes only against the proposed resolutions at the General Meeting. There were no Shares entitling the Shareholders to attend and abstain from voting in favor of the resolutions at the General Meeting as set out in Rule 13.40 of the Listing Rules.  No Shareholders were required to abstain from voting at the General Meeting under the Listing Rules. No Shareholders had stated their intention in the Circular to vote against or to abstain from voting on the resolutions at the General Meeting.


As mentioned in Company’s announcement dated May 17, 2019, due to personal reasons and other commitments which require more of her dedication, Ms. Joanne Yan had informed the Board that she would not stand for the re-election as Director at the General Meeting.  As such, she retired as independent non-executive Director of the Company upon conclusion of the General Meeting in accordance with her term of office.

Ms. Yan has confirmed that she has no disagreement with the Board and there are no matters relating to her retirement that need to be brought to the attention of the Shareholders of the Company. 

Following Ms. Yan’s retirement, the number of independent non-executive Directors and the members of Audit Committee of the Company has further fallen below the minimum number of three.

The Board is fully aware of the requirements under Rules 3.10(1) and 3.10A of the Listing Rules that the minimum number of independent non-executive Directors shall be three and shall represent at least one-third of the Board; and (ii) the requirement set out in Rule 3.21 of the Listing Rules that the audit committee must comprise a minimum of three members.

The Company is looking for suitable candidates and will appoint sufficient numbers of independent non-executive Directors in accordance with the applicable rules and regulations, and will make further announcement in due course.

The Board would like to thank Ms. Yan for her dedicated services and contributions to the Company during her tenure of services and wishes her success in future endeavor.
