TORONTO, Nov. 23, 2022 /PRNewswire/ - Givex Information Technology Group Limited (TSX: GIVX) (OTCQX: GIVXF) (the "Company" or "Givex") announces that it has completed its continuance out of the Province of British Columbia and into the Province of Ontario under the provisions of the Business Corporations Act (Ontario) (the "Continuance"), and has changed its name from "Givex Information Technology Group Limited" to "Givex Corp".
The Continuance and Name Change was overwhelmingly approved by the shareholders of the Company by a special resolution passed at the Company's annual and special meeting held on May 26, 2022 (the "Meeting") with an approval rate of 98.3% of the votes cast at the Meeting. In addition, shareholders of the Company were given rights of dissent with respect to the Continuation.
As noted in the Company's management information circular in respect of the Meeting, on account of the majority of the Company's management and the head office of the Company being located in Ontario, the board of directors of the Company (the "Board") determined that it would be most efficient and cost effective for the Company to be governed by the laws of Ontario and authorized the Continuance and Name Change on April 19, 2022. The rationale for the Name Change is to ease certain administrative and logistical matters and to revert to how the Corporation was referred to during its twenty-two year history prior to completing its reverse takeover transaction and listing on the Toronto Stock Exchange in December of 2021.
The ticker symbol of the Company in connection with the Continuation and Name Change remains the same. A copy of the Certificate of Continuance once issued by the Ministry of Government and Consumer Services will be available on SEDAR at www.SEDAR.com.
