PUBLISHED: March 25, 2021
Annual General Meeting Format
The Corporation is carefully monitoring the public health impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic on a daily basis. As at the date published (above), the Corporation intends to hold the Meeting in person and teleconference. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, we ask that, in considering whether to attend the Meeting in person, shareholders follow, among other things, the instructions of the Public Health Agency of Canada (https://www.canada.ca/en/public-health/services/diseases/coronavirus-disease-covid-19.html) and any applicable federal, provincial and local instructions.
Given the public health guidelines in particular the crucial importance of “social distancing” – the Corporation encourages shareholders NOT to attend the Meeting in person, particularly if they are experiencing any of the described COVID-19 symptoms of fever, cough or difficulty breathing. Subject to the Corporation's by-laws, attendance in person at the Meeting will be restricted to essential personnel and registered shareholders and proxyholders entitled to attend and vote at the Meeting; no external guests will be allowed to attend. As such, the Corporation has organized a conference call (details below) whereby shareholders can listen to the Meeting. This is not a virtual meeting and a shareholder attending the Meeting by teleconference will not be able to vote via teleconference at the Meeting. As such, shareholders who attend the Meeting by teleconference and wish to ensure their Common Shares will be voted at the Meeting are requested to complete, sign and date the form of proxy or voting instruction form in accordance with the instructions set out therein. As shareholder participation at the Meeting is important, the Corporation encourages shareholders to exercise their right to vote prior to the Meeting by following the instructions set out in the form of proxy or voting instruction form received by shareholders.
Following the formal portion of the Meeting, there will be a management presentation. The management presentation will be provided on our corporate website www.pfbcorp.com/investors at approximately 11:00 a.m. (Mountain Daylight Time). Management will not offer an opportunity for questions after the management presentation.
