Following consultation with its auditors, the Company expects to release its audited financial statements for the 12 months ending December 31, 2020 and the accompanying Management Discussion and Analysis and CEO and CFO certificates for the same period on May 10, 2021 (the “Documents”). In doing so, the Company is relying on an application filed with the Ontario Securities Commission pursuant to Part 4 of National Policy 12-203 – Management Cease Trade Orders (“NP 12-203”) for a Management Cease Trade Order (“MCTO”) pending the filing of the Documents, which MCTO will prohibit the Company’s management and directors from trading in the securities of the Company until such time as the Documents are filed. No decision has yet been made by the Ontario Securities Commission on this application. The Ontario Securities Commission may grant the application and issue the MCTO or it may impose an issuer cease trade order if the Documents are not filed on or before April 30, 2021.
As described above, the Company plans to file the Documents on May 10, 2021. The Company will comply with the alternative information guidelines set out in Section 9 of NP 12-203 and will file bi-weekly default status reports in the form of press releases, should the Documents not be filed at that time. If a MCTO is issued, during the period of default and until filing of the Documents, the Company intends to satisfy the provisions of the “alternative information guidelines as set out in NP 12-203, including the requirement to file bi-weekly status reports in the form of news releases containing prescribed updating information. There can be no assurance that a MCTO will be issued.
Until the Company has filed the Documents, members of the Company’s management and directors and other insiders are subject to an insider trading black-out as per its internal Insider Trading and Reporting Policy.
The Company confirms that, other than as disclosed in publicly issued press releases and material change reports, including the Company’s press release dated April 19, 2021 that it would be restating its Q2 and Q3, 2020 interim financial reports, there have been no material business developments since the filing on November 24, 2020 of the Company’s latest interim financial reports for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2020.
The Company is not currently subject to any insolvency proceedings. If the Company provides any information to any of its creditors during the period in which it is in default of filing the Documents, the Company confirms that it will also file material change reports on SEDAR containing such information as is required.
