TORONTO, Nov. 9, 2011 /CNW/ - The Investment Industry Regulatory
Organization of Canada (IIROC) imposed a regulatory trading halt for
dissemination of material news on the common shares and convertible
debentures of Sterling Shoes Inc. (TSX Symbol SSI). Shortly following
the trading halt, the company issued a press release announcing that it
had obtained creditor protection from the Supreme Court of British
Columbia under the Companies' Creditors Arrangement Act, RSC 1985, c.
C-36, as amended. It is the understanding of IIROC that no further news
announcements are imminent. Accordingly, IIROC has decided to remove
the regulatory trading halt. However, as per TSX bulletin 2011-1348,
the common shares and convertible debentures of Sterling Shoes Inc.
remain suspended by the listing Exchange pending delisting at the close
of market on November 25, 2011.
