Jeff Finkelstein, Chief Financial Officer, Argentex Mining Corporation

In the spring of 2016, Argentex hired Shorecrest to provide proxy advisory services for its Special AGM for it’s business combination with Austral Gold.

Shorecrest employees provided us with outstanding service. They were not only extremely knowledgable of the proxy process, but proactive as well.

I would certainly recommend Shorecrest to anyone requiring proxy advisory services.

I was most impressed by the quality of advice we received. Christine and her partners made the process transparent and recommended a course of action that was highly cost-effective. I will use them again.

Stuart B. Morrow, Partner – Corporate Finance, DLA Piper

I had the pleasure of working with Shorecrest Group in the successful defence of an activist shareholder campaign in 2016.  Their in-depth knowledge of the proxy voting system along with their advance predictive vote analysis gave our team confidence that we would have a successful outcome.

Pace Goldman, Independent Director of Parkit Enterprise Inc

As independent board members, we found ourselves in unfamiliar territory after our company’s management team launched an unwarranted fight against the independent directors. Shorecrest worked diligently alongside the independent directors to help us reach our shareholders and secure the necessary votes to prevail and enhance shareholder value. Thank you Shorecrest!

Christine and the rest of her Shorecrest team easily integrated themselves into the corporate transaction process delivering reliable advice, always accessible service and importantly for us, successful results.

Williams S. Rice (No Relation), QC Chair Canadian Securities Administrators – see letter

Dear Ms. Rice, On behalf of the Canadian Securities Administrators, I am writing this letter to thank you for the assistance that you and your firm, the Shorecrest Group, have provided to us in connection with our review of the proxy voting infrastructure. Your expertise in proxy voting processes was invaluable to our review of uncontested shareholder meetings. The CSA staff who worked with you have had only positive things to say about the experience. Your contribution to improving the integrity of proxy voting in Canada is greatly appreciated.

Kevin L. Klippenstein, C.A. Chief Financial Officer of Parrish & Heimbecker

When we needed a proxy solicitor to assist with getting the approval of our plan of arrangement, Shorecrest was our first choice. We have previously worked with the founders of Shorecrest Group and they have been an invaluable resource to us with obtaining the approval for the plan of arrangement regarding Weyburn Inland Terminal. Shorecrest acted as the proxy solicitation agent for the meeting as well as Depositary for the arrangement. We are very happy with the responsiveness and diligent effort demonstrated by all Shorecrest employees. We received numerous compliments from shareholders acknowledging how helpful Shorecrest had been to them in completing their voting and letter of transmittals for the offer.  I would not hesitate to recommend Shorecrest to any issuer looking for assistance in communicating to their shareholders whether it is voting at a meeting or tendering their shares to an offer.

Stephen Pincus, Partner at Goodmans LLP

The co-founders are very capable, proficient, focused, energetic and knowledgeable and they work in an area with lots of complexity. We have worked with them on a number of proxy fights.” (Stephen Pincus, Partner at Goodmans LLP as quoted by Critchley, Financial Post, December 18 2013, p. 2)

Tom Schwartz, President and CEO, Canadian Apartment Properties Real Estate Investment Trust

Shorecrest in a very efficient and professional manner, assisted CAPREIT in soliciting the necessary proxies to win a crucial vote at this year’s Annual Meeting. I am a very satisfied client.

John Varghese, CEO, Revive Capital Investment Management Inc

As an active investor, we believe that our investments can be successful by igniting necessary changes in boards and management teams when needed. When engaging with an issuer to bring about change, it is essential to have the right advisors working with you. Shorecrest’s knowledge and expertise in a contested situation proved invaluable in achieving a successful outcome in a recent opportunity. I would recommend Shorecrest to any investor group going through a similar situation.

Julien Balkany, Managing Partner and Chief Investment Officer of Nanes Balkany LLC

Shorecrest worked closely with us on our campaign to enhance the share value of one of our Canadian investments. We would highly recommend their services to anyone that requires in-depth insight into the ownership of an investment.
