Expects to Complete the Annual Filing on or Before May 13
Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – May 9, 2022) – Tracesafe Inc. (CSE: TSF) (the “Company”) announces that it has been issued a cease trade order (“CTO”) by the Ontario Securities Commission by virtue of not filing the following periodic disclosure documents (the “Annual Filings”) by the filing deadline of April 30, 2022:
annual audited financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2021;
management’s discussion and analysis for the year ended December 31, 2021; and
CEO and CFO certifications of the annual filings for the year ended December 31, 2021.
The Company’s 2021 audit currently remains ongoing. Although the audit continues to progress well, it has taken longer to complete than originally anticipated by virtue of the auditor’s review of the Company’s revenue growth activity during the year and certain balance sheet items which require independent valuations to be performed. The Company continues to operate normally without disruption and is working diligently and expeditiously with its auditors to complete the Annual Filings as soon as possible. The cause of the delay is not material to the Company or its operations.
The CTO issued effective May 9, 2022, will prohibit the trading by any person of any securities of the Company, including trades in the Company’s common shares made through the Canadian Securities Exchange. The Company expects the CTO to remain in place until such time as the Annual Filings and all continuous disclosure requirements have been filed and the Company receives an order from the OSC revoking the CTO.
The Company anticipates that it will complete the Annual Filings on or before May 13, 2022. Upon remedying the default within 90 days of the date of the CTO, the filing of the Annual Filings, including all other filings and certifications that subsequently become due, constitutes the application to revoke the CTO.
The Company is not currently subject to any insolvency proceedings. The Company also confirms that there is no other material information concerning the affairs of the Company that has not been generally disclosed as of the date of this press release.
A copy of the CTO will be posted on the Ontario Securities Commission website once issued.
