VANCOUVER, Sept. 19, 2019 /CNW/ - Pivot Pharmaceuticals Inc. (CSE: PVOT /OTCQB: PVOTF / FRA: NPAT) ("Pivot" or the "Company"), is responding to the Stockwatch Article dated September 18, 2019 regarding the claims filed by Aly Ismail/Green Stream Botanicals Corp. ("Aly Ismail"). As of the date hereof, Pivot has not been served with the claim and Pivot strongly denies all allegations contained in the article and the claims by Aly Ismail as described in the article are without merit.
Pivot further notes that neither Aly Ismail nor Green Stream Botanicals Corp. nor NH Transcendental Solutions Inc. are registrants under Canadian securities laws and thus any claim by Aly Ismail with respect to a finder's fee in connection with a private placement without the appropriate registration or exemption would constitute a breach by Aly Ismail of Canadian securities laws. Pivot intends to vigorously defend the claim, if as and when served by Aly Ismail. Pivot urges the regulators to sanction unregistered non-exempt persons that are engaging in activities such as those allegedly engaged by Aly Ismail that would be in violation of applicable securities laws.
