Toronto, Ontario, May 3, 2018 – GreenBank Capital Inc. (CSE: GBC and OTCMKTS: GRNBF and FRA; 2TL) (“GreenBank or the Company”) announces that the directors of Minfocus have advised that, in their view, they have found another technical reason to delay the holding of a meeting of the Minfocus shareholders. This time the pathetic excuse is that the Shareholders Requisition Notice did not contain a return mailing address.
In Greenbank’s view, the directors of Minfocus are continuing their pattern of preferring their own interests over the rights of Minfocus shareholders to express their views on the company’s future at a shareholders meeting. The inevitable day when the shareholders of Minfocus remove the current directors is still coming. GreenBank will not be deterred from pursuing its course of action to vote out the current Minfocus directors in the interests of all Minfocus shareholders.
In GreenBank’s opinion, the current Minfocus directors’ stewardship has led to a situation where Minfocus has no cash; has indebtedness with no ability to pay off such indebtedness; has no ability to pursue mineral exploration; and has a share price hovering around 1 cent; all while issuing themselves new common shares. In GreenBank’s opinion, the Minfocus directors’ series of actions are an affront to good corporate governance. GreenBank will once again file a Shareholders Requisition Notice to replace the Minfocus directors.
“GreenBank will patiently pursue its rights as the largest shareholder of Minfocus. If the Minfocus directors think that delaying a shareholders meeting by a few weeks over a technicality will improve their chances of remaining as Minfocus directors then they are badly mistaken.“ said Danny Wettreich, CEO of GreenBank.
