(TSXV:NFG | OTCQB: NFGFF) (“New Found” or the “Company”) announces that the venue for its annual general meeting of shareholders (“AGM”) has been changed to Suite 2600, 595 Burrard Street, Vancouver, British Columbia. As previously published, the AGM will be held at 10:00 a.m. PT on Thursday, December 8, 2022.
The AGM will be convened with the minimum quorum of shareholders as stated in the by-laws of the Company. Social distancing measures will be in place; therefore, there will be limited space for shareholders to attend in person. In order to mitigate risks to the health and safety of the community, shareholders, employees, and other stakeholders, due to continuing concerns associated with the COVID-19 pandemic, shareholders are encouraged to vote their proxy by mail, internet, or telephone and to listen to the live AGM via conference call using the dial-in number to be provided in the notice of meeting and management information circular.
Shareholders are reminded that there will be a number of voting methods available to them in advance of the AGM which will be outlined in the “Voting Instructions” section of New Found’s management information circular which will be mailed to shareholders and be found on the Company’s SEDAR profile at www.sedar.com and on the Company’s website, https://www.newfoundgold.ca/investors/?tab-agm, on November 10, 2022.
The deadline to vote in advance of the AGM will be Tuesday, December 6, 2022, at 10:00 a.m. PT or not later than 48 hours before the time of any adjourned AGM (excluding Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays).
The Company will provide a dial-in number to the AGM so that shareholders or proxyholders can listen to the live AGM. Shareholders listening to the live AGM will only be entitled to vote by proxy and will only be counted in quorum if they send their proxies to the Company, as described above. The dial-in number for the live AGM is an accommodation for shareholders and proxyholders who wish to hear the live AGM without attending in person because of COVID-19.
