Superior Plus Corp. (Superior) (TSX: SPB) today announced that, due to the current COVID-19 pandemic and the latest directives from public health and other government authorities to maintain physical distance and eliminate social gatherings, it will now hold its upcoming annual meeting of common shareholders scheduled for May 13, 2020 at 4:00 p.m. (Eastern time) in a virtual-only format whereby shareholders may attend and participate in the annual meeting via live webcast. Shareholders will not be able to attend the meeting in person. The annual meeting was previously scheduled to be held in person at the TMX Broadcast Centre.
Our decision to change to a virtual-only format was made in light of public health concerns regarding the COVID-19 virus and with the well-being of our communities, shareholders, employees and other stakeholders in mind.
Registered shareholders and duly appointed proxyholders will be able to attend the meeting, ask questions and securely vote in real time, online at https://web.lumiagm.com/264388308, through a web-based platform instead of attending the meeting in person. This includes non-registered shareholders (beneficial shareholders who hold their voting shares through an intermediary such as a securities broker, trustee or financial institution) who have duly appointed themselves as proxyholder.
Non-registered (beneficial) shareholders who have not duly appointed themselves as proxyholder and other interested parties will also be able to attend the meeting as guests online through the same live webcast, however, guests will not be able to vote at the meeting or ask questions.
Note that the Superior management information circular (the circular) dated March 4, 2020 previously filed on SEDAR and in the process of being distributed to shareholders will not be updated to reflect the change in location of and procedure for the meeting and may continue to be used to vote shares.
Whether or not shareholders plan to attend the virtual meeting, they may still vote in advance by submitting their proxy or voting instruction form so that it is received no later than 4:00 p.m. (Eastern time) on May 11, 2020 (the proxy deadline) to: Computershare Trust Company of Canada, Proxy department, 8th floor, 100 University Avenue, Toronto, Ontario M6J 2Y1. Please refer to the section on Voting on pages 8 and 9 of the circular for additional details on how to vote by proxy before the meeting.
Attending the Virtual Meeting
Attending the virtual meeting enables registered shareholders and duly appointed proxyholders, including non-registered (beneficial) shareholders who have appointed themselves as proxyholders, to attend the meeting, ask questions and vote, all in real time. Registered shareholders and duly appointed proxyholders can vote at the appropriate times during the meeting. Guests, including non-registered (beneficial) shareholders who have not duly appointed a proxyholder, can log in to the meeting as set out below.

- Click I have a Login and then enter your 15-digit control number and password Superior2020 (case sensitive).
- Click I am a Guest and then complete the online form.
Once you login to the virtual meeting and you accept the terms and conditions, you will be revoking any and all previously submitted proxies. However, in such a case, you will be provided the opportunity to vote by ballot on the matters put forth at the meeting. If you do not wish to revoke all previously submitted proxies, do not accept the terms and conditions, in which case you can only enter the meeting as a guest.
Registered shareholders: The 15-digit control number located on the form of proxy or in the email notification you received is your control number.
Duly appointed proxyholders: Computershare will provide the proxyholder with a 15-digit control number by email after the voting deadline has passed and the proxyholder has been duly appointed AND registered.
