Mountain Valley MD Holdings Inc. Requests Additional Time to Complete Annual Financial Statements and Related Filings and Corresponding Management Cease Trade Order
VANCOUVER, B.C. – The Newswire – September 15, 2020 - Mountain Valley MD Holdings Inc. (the “Company” or “MVMD”) (CSE:MVMD) (CNSX:MVMD.CN) (FRA:20MP) announces additional delays in the filing of the Company’s financial statements for the year ended March 31, 2020 and the related management's discussion and analysis ("MD&A") and certifications (the "Annual Filings") as a result of circumstances outside of its control. The Company has filed an application with the relevant securities authorities requesting that they issue a management cease trade order (an "MCTO").
As previously announced, the Company had relied upon the blanket relief provided by the Canadian Securities Administrators (the "CSA") in response to the COVID-19 pandemic to extend the filing deadline for the Annual Filings. As a result of delays the Company has experienced with the audit process and its external auditors, which were outside of the control of the Company’s officers and directors, the Company does not expect to be able to file the Annual Filings by their extended deadline. The Company expects to have until October 14, 2020 to complete the audit of the Company's consolidated financial statements, however expects to be able to file the Annual Filings prior to September 30, 2020.
Pursuant to National Policy 12-203 Management Cease Trade Orders ("NP 12-203"), the Company is requesting that an MCTO be issued. If granted, the MCTO will restrict all trading by the Company's Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer in the Company's securities. An MCTO will not affect the ability of persons other than the directors, officers and insiders to trade in the Company's securities. An MCTO will remain in effect until the Annual Filings are filed or until it is revoked or varied.
The Company continues to impose an insider trading blackout pending filing of the Annual Filings. The Company confirms that it will comply with the alternative information guidelines set forth in NP 12-203 for so long as it remains in default of the requirement to file the Annual Filings. There is no material information relating to its affairs that has not been generally disclosed.
