All other matters considered at the Meeting, including the ratification and approval of Capstone's adoption of an advance notice policy regarding director nominations, were approved by a show of hands.

"On behalf of the Board of Directors, I would like to thank the many shareholders who voted in person or by proxy at our annual meeting," said Mr. V. James Sardo, Chairman of the Board of Directors. "We are also delighted by the vote of confidence in the Board and management that they have shown by overwhelmingly re-electing all directors."

"The atypical number of withhold votes this year is attributable to a non-discretionary voting policy implemented by an institutional shareholder," continued Mr. Sardo. "This policy relates to diversity metrics that are outside of industry standards. The Board of Directors is committed to diversity and seeks candidates from diverse backgrounds with the objective of achieving and maintaining the best mix of skills and experience, including gender and other traits, to provide for overall stewardship of the company in accordance with Canadian regulatory requirements and best practices."

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken.
