Vancouver, BC – (AccessWire – November 13, 2019) – CubicFarm® Systems Corp. (TSXV: CUB) (“CubicFarms” or the “Company”) is providing this bi-weekly default status report in accordance with National Policy 12-203 – Management Cease Trade Orders (“NP 12-203”). In its news release dated October 29, 2019 (the “Default Notice”), the Company announced the delay in the filing of its annual financial statements for the fiscal year ended June 30, 2019 and the related management’s discussion and analysis (the “Required Records”) by the filing deadline of October 28, 2019.
On October 29, 2019, the British Columbia Securities Commision, as principal regulator, granted a temporary management cease trade order (the “MCTO”). As announced in the Default Notice, the Company requires additional time to file the Required Records due to the recent passing of one of the Company’s founders and former Chairman Dean Drysdale, who was responsible for financial reporting and corporate governance prior to the Company going public. CubicFarms is continuing to work diligently and expeditiously with its auditors to complete and file the Required Records. The Company currently anticipates that it will be in a position to file imminently and will issue another release shortly upon filing.
Pursuant to NP 12-203, the Company must file bi-weekly default status reports in the form of further news releases during the period of the MCTO. The Company reports that since the Default Notice: (i) there have been no material changes regarding the information contained in the Default Notice; (ii) there have been no failures by the Company in fulfilling its stated intentions with respect to satisfying the provisions of the alternative information guidelines under NP 12-203; (iii) there has not been, nor is there anticipated to be, any specified default subsequent to the default announced in the Default Notice; and (iv) there is no other material information concerning the affairs of the Company that has not been generally disclosed as of the date of this news release.
Neither the TSX Venture Exchange nor its Regulation Services Provider (as that term is defined in the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange) accepts responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this release.
