The Board of Directors of the Company has elected to adopt an amended and restated shareholder rights plan that was presented to and approved by the shareholders of the Company at the Company’s annual general meeting held on December 20, 2012. The amended and restated shareholder rights plan was also approved by the TSX Venture Exchange on October 19, 2012.
The amended and restated shareholder rights plan has been adopted to ensure the fair treatment of all shareholders with respect to any takeover bid for the common shares of the Company. It is designed to provide shareholders with sufficient time to properly consider a takeover bid without undue time constraints. In addition, it will provide the Board with additional time for review and consideration of an unsolicited takeover bid and, if necessary, for the consideration of alternatives.
This amended and restated shareholder rights plan is not being adopted in response to any proposal to acquire control of the Company.
BY ORDER OF THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS OF
DECADE RESOURCES LTD.
Randolph Kasum, Chief Financial Officer
