Strad also announced that its Board of Directors has adopted an advance notice by-law (the "Advance Notice By-Law"), the purpose of which is to provide shareholders, directors and management of the Company with a clear framework for nominating directors.  The Advance Notice By-Law fixes a deadline by which holders of record of common shares of Strad must submit director nominations to the Company prior to any annual or special meeting of shareholders and sets forth the information that a shareholder must include in the notice in order for it to be valid. 

In the case of an annual meeting of shareholders, notice to the Company must be made not less than 30 days prior to the date of the annual meeting; provided, however, that in the event the annual meeting is to be held on a date that is less than 50 days after the date (the "Notice Date") on which the first public announcement of the date of the annual meeting was made, notice by the nominating shareholder must be provided not later than the close of business on the 10th day following the Notice Date.

In the case of a special meeting (which is not also an annual meeting) of shareholders called for the purpose of electing directors, notice to the Company must be provided not later than the close of business on the 15th day following the day on which the first public announcement of the date of the special meeting was made.

The Advance Notice By-Law is now effective and in full force and effect.  Shareholders of Strad will be asked to confirm and ratify the Advance Notice By-Law at the upcoming annual and special meeting of shareholders currently scheduled for June 2, 2016.  If the Advance Notice By-Law is not confirmed by shareholders at the upcoming annual meeting, the Advance Notice By-Law will be of no further force and effect following the termination of such meeting of shareholders.

The full text of the Advance Notice By-Law will be made available under Strad's profile on SEDAR at
