- Confirms no material undisclosed information -
TORONTO, Jan. 19, 2016 /CNW/ - Street Capital Group Inc. ("Street Capital" or the "Company") (TSX: SCB), at the request of the Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada on behalf of the TSX, confirms that its management is not aware of any undisclosed material change to the Company's business or operations.
As disclosed on November 10, 2015, the Company is still in the Pre-Commencement Review phase of its application to the Minister of Finance to continue as a Schedule I bank. This phase, which is one of the last stages of the continuation process, includes an on-site review by OSFI to determine whether Street Capital is sufficiently prepared to commence business operations as a federally regulated financial institution. Once the on-site review has been completed, Street Capital will be expected to address any concerns and material findings coming out of that review prior to OSFI making a recommendation to the Minister of Finance for Letters Patent of Continuation and to the Superintendent of Financial Institutions for an Order to Commence and Carry on Business. At this point the Company does not have new material information to report and is expecting to provide an update with its fourth quarter press release in March unless new material information becomes available prior to that date.
