DENVER, CO, May 10, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — via NewMediaWire – CBD Global Sciences Inc., dba Global Sciences Inc. CBDNF CBDN GS GS (the “Company”) is pleased to announce that further to its press release dated April 19, 2022, the Company’s principal regulator, the Alberta Securities Commission, has accepted the Company’s application for, and granted, a management cease trade order (the “MCTO”). The application for the MCTO was made by the Company due to a delay in the filing of its audited annual financial statements, accompanying management discussion and analysis and related CEO and CFO certifications for the year ended December 31, 2021 (the “Annual Filings”). The Company is actively working with its auditors to file the Annual Filings, which the Company expects to be completed in due course.
During the period in which the MCTO is effective, the general investing public, who are not insiders of the Company, will continue to be able to trade in the Company’s securities. However, the Company’s CEO and CFO will not be able to trade the Company’s securities until such time as the Annual Filings and all continuous disclosure requirements have been filed by the Company, and the MCTO has been lifted.
The Company’s board of directors and its management confirm that they are working expeditiously to meet the Company’s obligations relating to the filing of the Annual Filings. At this time, the Company anticipates being able to complete the Annual Filings on or before July 1, 2022.
During the MCTO, the Company confirms that it will comply with the provisions of the alternative information guidelines set out in National Policy 12-203 – Cease Trade Orders for Continuous Disclosure Defaults for as long as it remains in default, including the issuance of bi-weekly default status reports, each of which will be issued in the form of a news release.
The Company confirms as of the date of this news release that there is no insolvency proceeding against it and there is no other material information concerning the affairs of the Company that has not been generally disclosed.
