At the Meeting shareholders also approved amendments to the Company’s 2018 Rio2 Stock Option Plan (the “Amended Plan”). The Amended Plan is substantially the same as the 2018 Stock Option Plan; however, it allows for the exercise of stock options on a cashless and net exercise basis and contains other minor amendments to ensure compliance with TSX Venture Exchange (the “Exchange”) Policy 4.4 – Security Based Compensation (“Policy 4.4”) which was implemented by the Exchange on November 24, 2021.


As a result of the shareholder approval, the 2018 Stock Option Plan will be of no further force and effect and all options and stock option agreements issued under the 2018 Stock Option Plan will be deemed to be issued under the Amended Plan and henceforth governed under the Amended Plan. The full version of the Amended Plan can be found on Rio2’s Sedar+ profile or obtained directly from the Company at info@rio2.com.


At the Meeting, shareholders also voted in favor of reappointing Grant Thornton LLP as Company auditors for the ensuing year and authorizing directors to fix their remuneration.
