On August 18, 2020, the Company filed (i) its audited annual financial statements, annual management’s discussion and analysis, and related certifications for the years ended December 31, 2019, and on August 24, 2020, the Company filed (ii) its interim financial statements, interim management’s discussion and analysis, and related certifications for the three months ended March 31, 2020 (collectively, the “Financial Disclosure Documents”).

Following the filing of the Financial Disclosure Documents, the Company is up-to-date with its continuous disclosure obligations and has met all conditions required by the BCSC for revocation of the cease trade order.
Interim Financial Statements
The Company also announces that, as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, it anticipates a delay in the filings of its interim financial statements for the period ended June 30, 2020 (the “Interim Financial Statements”), and accompanying management’s discussion and analysis (“Interim MD&A”), and related CEO and CFO certifications (the “Interim Certifications”, together with the Interim Financial Statements and the Interim MD&A, the “Interim Filings”).
The Company will be relying on BC Instrument 51-517 – Temporary Exemption from Certain Corporate Finance Requirements with Deadlines during the Period of June 2 to August 31, 2020 (“BCI 51-517”) enacted by the BCSC which provides relief consisting of a 45-day extension for certain regulatory filings required to be made during the period June 2, 2020 to August 31, 2020. The Company will be relying on the temporary exemptions pursuant to BCI 51-517 with respect to the following provisions:
- the requirement to file the Interim Financial Statements on or before the 60th day after the end of the interim period as required by subsection 4.4(b) of National Instrument 51-102 – Continuous Disclosure Obligations (“NI 51-102”);
- the requirement to file its Interim MD&A on or before the earlier of the 60th day after the end of the interim period and the date the Financial Statements are filed as required by subsection 5.1(2) of NI 51-102; and

The Company is continuing to work diligently on the finalization of the Interim Filings and estimates that it will file the Interim Filings on or before October 14, 2020. In connection with utilizing the temporary relief and extensions for issuers provided pursuant to BCI 51-517, the Company confirms that, until such time as the Interim Filings have been filed, the Company’s management and other insiders are subject to an insider trading black-out that reflects the principles of Section 9 of National Policy 11-207 – Failure-to-File Cease Trade Orders and Revocations in Multiple Jurisdictions.
The Company reports that other than as set forth in this news release, since the filing of the Company’s interim financial statements for the three months ended March 31, 2020, there have been no material business developments other than those that have been previously disclosed in the Company’s news releases and filings.
