SHENZHEN, China, Dec. 5, 2011 /PRNewswire-Asia-FirstCall/ -- New Energy Systems Group (NYSE Amex: NEWN) ("New Energy" or the "Company"), an original design manufacturer and distributor of consumer branded backup power systems and solar panels, today announced the results of its 2011 Annual General Meeting held in Shenzhen, China on November 28, 2011.
Shareholders approved the following proposals:
- Election of Weihe Yu, Li Liu, Elan Yaish, and Shuxian Cui to the Company's Board of Directors effective immediately.
- Approval of its 2011 Equity Incentive Compensation Plan ("Plan") and reservation of 2,000,000 shares of the Company's common stock under the Plan.
- Ratification of Goldman Kurland Mohidin, LLP as the Company's independent auditor for the fiscal year ending December 31, 2011.
"I would be remiss in not acknowledging the dissent of our shareholders, including major shareholders of our stock incentive plan considering our performance in 2011," began Weihe "Jack" Yu. "It is, nor was, our intention to reward any member of the sales and marketing team or management team shares not directly tied to the performance goals of the Company. As we work through our budget for 2012 and execute an aggressive sales strategy for the year, retaining our design, sales and marketing teams for Anytone® and KimFai solar are critical for our success and thus incentivizing our employees with stock compensation, we feel, is aligned with the goals of our organization and shareholders alike. Our Board of Directors and management team will formalize the targets and associated share-based compensation for approval by our Board and Compensation Committee before any shares are issued," concluded Chairman and CEO Jack Yu.
