National Instrument 54-101 provides Issuers with the option to mail meeting materials directly to Non-Objecting Beneficial Owners (NOBOs). NOBOs are beneficial owners who have indicated that the Issuer can know who they are.
Beneficial securityholders have the option of being an Objecting Beneficial Owner (OBO) which means that their contact and ownership information must remain private. Beneficial securityholders are investors who hold their securities through an Intermediary.
The Intermediary typically holds the securities through a depository. Therefore, the name of the beneficial securityholder does not appear on the share register.
National Instrument 54-101 allows an Issuer to mail material directly to their NOBO securityholders, by requesting record date securityholder information from the Intermediaries following the process set out in National Instrument 54-101.
Marrelli Trust Company Limited requests NOBO securityholder information on your behalf and manages the tabulation of any votes received.
