OTTAWA, Dec. 17 /CNW/ - Seprotech Systems Incorporated (TSX-V: SET; "Seprotech" or the "Company") confirms that, as expected and disclosed in the Company's press release dated December 9, 2010, the Company will not be able to file its audited financial statements for the year ended August 31, 2010 and related MD&A and CEO and CFO certificates by December 29, 2010 as required under securities laws. The Company is continuing to work with its auditors to complete its audited financial statements and MD&A for the fiscal year ended August 31, 2010 and has targeted completion by January 26, 2011.
The Company confirms that it intends to satisfy the provisions of the alternative information guidelines found in sections 4.3 and 4.4 of National Policy 12-203 for so long as it is delayed in filing the annual financial statements and related MD&A and CFO certificates. During the period of delay, the Company will issue bi-weekly status reports in the form of further press releases, which will also be filed on the System for Electronic Document Analysis and Retrieval (SEDAR) at www.sedar.com.
In view of this delay in filing, the Company has applied to the applicable Canadian securities regulatory authorities for a management cease trade order precluding the Company's directors and officers from trading in the Company's securities. There can be no certainty that such an order will be granted. The applicable regulatory authorities may instead issue cease trade orders against the Company for failure to file its annual financial statements and related MD&A and CEO and CFO certificates within the prescribed time period.
