Star Navigation Responds to Invalid Notice of Meetings

TORONTO, Oct. 17, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Star Navigation Systems Group Ltd. (CSE:SNA) (SNA.CN) (SNAVF) ("Star” or the “Company”) has responded to the latest tactics of a dissident shareholder group and confirms that no special meeting of shareholders of the Company (the “Shareholders”) will take place on December 11, 2019.

The dissidents’ latest initiative involves issuing two notifications of meeting and record dates on October 9, 2019 (the “Notifications”), one of which is purporting to set the date for a special meeting of Shareholders on December 11, 2019, pursuant to two invalid shareholder meeting requisitions dated September 13 and 16, 2019 (the “Requisitions”).

The Requisitions constitute the fifth time that the dissidents have submitted an invalid shareholder meeting requisition to the Company. The Notifications constitute the second and third time that the dissidents have inappropriately filed a notification of meeting and record date on the Company’s SEDAR profile pursuant to an invalid shareholder meeting requisition. 

The dissidents are conducting themselves in an inappropriate manner that is unnecessarily disruptive to the market. These actions are part of many attacks committed by the dissidents that continue to threaten the very important initiatives underway to maximize the Company's potential, and to undermine shareholders’ rights. Indeed, these actions are jeopardizing the Company’s financing initiatives and continue to divert resources away from the Company’s operations. 

As was previously announced and reiterated to the dissidents, the Company’s board of directors have resolved to call an annual and general meeting of Shareholders on March 9, 2020.
