WINNIPEG, Manitoba, June 09, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Kane Biotech Inc. (TSX-V:KNE; OTCQB:KNBIF), (the “Company” or “Kane Biotech”), today announced that, at the annual and special meeting of shareholders of Company (“Shareholders”) held on May 26, 2021 (the “Meeting”), by ordinary resolution, a majority of the Shareholders approved the adoption of the performance and restricted share unit plan of the Company (the “PRSU Plan”) and the amended and restated stock option plan of the Company (the “Amended and Restated SOP”), including a majority of disinterested Shareholder approval with respect to the PRSU Plan.

The PRSU Plan provides for the issuance of “restricted share units” and “performance share units” to employees, consultants, officers or directors of the Company and its subsidiaries. Pursuant to the PRSU Plan, the number of common shares of the Company (“Common Shares”) that may be reserved for issuance pursuant to awards granted under the PRSU Plan shall not exceed 10% of the total Common Shares issued and outstanding as of the date of the Meeting.

The Amended and Restated SOP provides that the aggregate number of Common Shares reserved for issuance under the Amended and Restated SOP will represent a maximum of 10% of the number of issued and outstanding Common Shares at any time. The Amended and Restated SOP amends the prior stock option plan of the Company by removing the requirement that the maximum number of shares issuable under the Amended and Restated SOP include shares issuable pursuant to any other share-based plan grants or agreements of the Company (which would include the PRSU Plan).
