A shareholder’s requisition was announced on September 19, and the plans will be voted on by shareholders at a general meeting to be held on November 1 to be held at the London offices of Grant Thornton.#
Stratex cited requisitioners’ plans to combine with a partially-owned Stratex subsidiary, acquire an Egyptian gold tailings operation, and then move into base metals exploration in Botswana and Namibia.
It also argues that total current overheads amount to less than the savings the dissidents are seeking to achieve via a proposed cost-cutting exercise.
Stratex continues to urge shareholders to vote against the requisition. To date, Stratex has received irrevocable commitments to vote against the resolutions from shareholders representing just over 56.6mln shares, equivalent to 12.12% of the company.
