Blackline Safety’s AGM and the impact of COVID-19
March 30, 2020
Calgary, Canada — March 30, 2020 — Blackline Safety Corp. ("Blackline" or the "Company") (TSXV: BLN) announces that due to recently announced restrictions and recommendations regarding public meetings and social distancing measures as a result of COVID-19, shareholders and other guests are strongly encouraged not to attend Blackline's annual general and special meeting of shareholders (the "Meeting") currently scheduled for Tuesday, April 7, 2020 at 3:00 p.m. (Calgary time).
Given concerns related to COVID-19, we encourage shareholders to vote in advance of the meeting and remind them that proxy voting instructions are included in the Notice of Meeting and Management Informational Circular and Proxy Statement provided to them in connection with the Meeting. To date, approximately 62.7% of Blackline’s outstanding common shares have been voted for the matters proposed to be considered at the Meeting.
Due to COVID-19 public health restrictions and recommendations, Blackline may be required to restrict access to the Meeting on a first-come basis to limit the number of attendees in accordance with social distancing measures. Any shareholder who still plans to attend the Meeting must comply with the Company’s COVID-19 visitor requirements, including signing a letter of confirmation that they have not travelled outside the province of Alberta, have not been in contact with anyone who has recently travelled outside the province or has symptoms of COVID-19. Additional restrictions may be added to the Company’s COVID-19 visitor requirements based on the changing nature of public health advisories.
The Company will only conduct the formal business of the Meeting. There will not be a follow-up corporate presentation nor question period provided by the Chair of the Board.
Blackline intends to host an open house at a convenient time when the international COVID-19 crisis has subsided, allowing shareholders to meet the teams, see its new G7 EXO area gas monitor and tour its headquarters and manufacturing facility.
