Chairman of the Board
Dear Fellow Shareholder,
On behalf of the board of directors (the “Board”) of Namaste Technologies Inc. (the “Company” or “Namaste”), I would like to invite you to participate in the annual general meeting of the shareholders (the “Meeting”) to be held at Hall 104 A, North Building, Metro Toronto Convention Centre, 255 Front Street West, Toronto, ON M5V 2W6 on Tuesday June 25, 2019, at 11 a.m. (Toronto time).
The purpose of the Meeting is to receive the audited financial statements and auditor’s report; appoint the Company’s auditors; elect the directors of the Company; and approve the continued use of the Company’s stock option plan. I would also like to use this opportunity to thank all shareholders for their continued support over the past few months as the Company has gone through a period of transition.
This is a fantastic company with great people, products and prospects. We have a strong, talented management team in place, and we all believe in the future of the Company.
Namaste Technologies is on the Right Track
Over the last few months, we have been focused on making changes internally while delivering results externally. The changes we have made impact the short, medium and long-term outlook of the Company. Specifically, Namaste:
As you can see, we have remained focused on executing our strategic plan, growing the business and creating shareholder value for you, Namaste’s owners.
Strengthened Board Leadership
As announced in March 2019, the Board set a goal of adding up to two additional independent directors. I am pleased to report that we have made good on that promise.
Directors Laurens Feenstra, Kenneth Ngo, and Branden Spikes have been joined by Kenneth Jones, who was appointed to the Board in April of this year and the more recent addition of Andy Wylczynski. Each of these two new independent directors bring a unique skillset to complement the existing Board.
Kenneth Jones is a highly experienced senior business leader with deep knowledge of private and public sector operations, gained over a 30-year career. His experience includes partner at PwC as well as progressive roles with a Fortune 500 company. In addition, for the past 38 years, Andy has worked with a wide range of organizations, including start-ups, and multinational corporations to raise capital and to advise on national, international and cross border restructuring initiatives and was also a partner at PwC.
In addition to augmenting the Board, the Company has established an Advisory Board to help provide additional expertise and strength to the Company.
