Sefton Resources - EGM called to replace the board
This announcement is for shareholders of Sefton Resources ("the Company"), which was formerly listed on the Alternative Investment Market ("AIM").
On Sunday 02 October Matthew Benjamin Turney ("Ben"), submitted a requisition for an Extraordinary General Meeting of the Company seeking the removal of Clement Chambers and Michael Hodges as directors, to be replaced by Ben Turney and Stuart Langelaan.
Turney and Langelaan are shareholder activists who are currently leading the revival of Teathers Financial Plc. Turney and Langelaan are acting in a private capacity in this initiative. Turney holds 585,100,000 shares in Sefton, which equates to 12.2% of the Company.
Resolutions to be put to shareholders
The following resolutions will be put to shareholders to vote on:
1. That with effect from the conclusion of the Meeting Clement Hadrian Chambers be removed as a director of the Company.
2. That with effect from the conclusion of the Meeting Michael Hodges be removed as a director of the Company.
3. That, with effect from the conclusion of the Meeting Matthew Benjamin Turney, having indicated his willingness to act, be appointed as a director of the Company.
4. That, with effect from the conclusion of the Meeting Stuart Langelaan, having indicated his willingness to act, be appointed as a director of the Company.
Rationale for EGM
Turney and Langelaan believe the ambitions of Sefton's and Teathers' shareholders are harmonious. Both groups have suffered extreme losses in their investments and both groups hope to restore some value through re-entry of their shares onto a trade exchange. Turney and Langelaan believe it will be in the interests of both groups to explore the possibility of uniting the two companies into one clean, reinvigorated shell. Turney and Langelaan have the energy, vision and expertise to execute this plan quickly.
In addition, Turney has in-depth knowledge of Sefton's history and the situation the Company currently finds itself in. Turney has had an initial cordial discussion with Sefton's board and hopes all parties will reach a mutually acceptable deal.
Turney and Langelaan will publish an outline plan via RNS Reach in the coming days for the benefit of both Sefton's and Teathers' shareholders.
