NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--GetSwift Technologies Limited ("GetSwift" or the "Corporation"; NEO: “GSW”), announces that Carl Mogridge, one of the independent directors of the Corporation, has resigned effective April 18, 2022.
As a result of the vacancy created by the resignation of Mr. Mogridge, the Board of Directors of the Corporation has appointed Mr. Joel Macdonald as a member of the Audit Committee on an interim basis to serve until the later of the Corporation’s next annual meeting of shareholders or October 18, 2022, unless earlier replaced by a successor (the “Interim Period”). Mr. Macdonald is the Interim Chief Executive Officer, President, a director and a co-founder of the Corporation and GetSwift is relying on the exemption provided by Section 3.5 of National Instrument 52-110 (the “Instrument”) during the Interim Period as Mr. Macdonald does not satisfy the requirement of being “independent” within the meaning of the Instrument. The Board of Directors of the Corporation has determined that reliance on the exemption provided by Section 3.5 of the Instrument will not materially adversely affect the ability of the Corporation’s Audit Committee to act independently and to satisfy its other requirements under the Instrument.
In addition to his appointment to the Corporation’s Audit Committee, Mr. Macdonald will replace Mr. Mogridge as a member of the Corporation’s Nomination and Corporate Governance Committee and Compensation Committee. Following the appointments of Mr. Macdonald described herein, the Corporation’s Audit Committee, Corporation’s Nomination and Corporate Governance Committee and Compensation Committee remain composed of three directors, a majority of whom are independent within the meaning of the Instrument.
The Corporation’s Nomination and Corporate Governance Committee will be conducting a search to find suitably qualified nominees to be considered for appointment as a replacement director and to fill the vacancy created by the resignation of Mr. Mogridge and/or stand for election as a director at GetSwift’s next annual meeting of shareholders.
