MONTREAL, QUEBEC -- (Marketwired) -- 03/31/14 -- Saputo Inc. (TSX: SAP) ("Saputo" or the "Company") announces today, as a result of its 87.92% shareholding in Warrnambool Cheese and Butter Factory Company Holdings Limited ("WCB"), it has requested a number of modifications to WCB's constating documents to, among other things, allow a restructure of the WCB board. The modifications will be put to WCB shareholders for consideration at a general meeting to be held on May 9, 2014.
Five nominees will be standing for election or re-election at the general meeting: from Saputo Inc., Lino A. Saputo, Jr., Chief Executive Officer and Vice Chairman of the Board and Louis-Philippe Carriere, Executive Vice President, Finance and Administration, as well as Terry Richardson, Bruce Valance and Neville Fielke, who are current WCB board members.
The proposed composition of the WCB board will allow WCB to benefit from the experience of current WCB board members seeking re-election, in terms of their knowledge of local market dynamics, the dairy industry, the WCB business and its key relationships, while adding Saputo nominees to the board.
Saputo produces, markets, and distributes a wide array of dairy products of the utmost quality, including cheese, fluid milk, extended shelf-life milk and cream products, cultured products and dairy ingredients.
