TSX-V: TVI OTC Pink: TVIPF
CALGARY, AB, July 16, 2020 /CNW/ - TVI Pacific Inc. (TSX-V: TVI) (OTC Pink: TVIPF) ("TVI" or the "Company") is providing this third default status report (the "Default Status Report") in accordance with National Policy 12-203 – Management Cease Trade Orders ("NP 12-203").
On June 3, 2020, the Company announced (the "Default Announcement") that, for the reasons disclosed in the Default Announcement:
- the filing of its audited financial statements for the years ended December 31, 2019 and December 31, 2018 (the "Annual Financial Statements"), and associated Management's Discussion and Analysis (the "Annual MD&A" and, together with the Annual Financial Statements, the "Annual Materials"), would not be completed by the filing deadline, being June 13, 2020; and
- the filing of its interim financial statements for the quarter ended March 31, 2020 (the "Interim Financial Statements"), and the associated MD&A (the "Interim MD&A" and, together with the Interim Financial Statements, the "Interim Materials" and, together with the Annual Materials, the "Required Materials"), would not be completed by the filing deadline, being July 14, 2020.
As a result of these delays, the Company's principal regulator, the Alberta Securities Commission, has granted a management cease trade order (the "MCTO") to the Company. The MCTO restricts all trading in securities of the Company, whether direct or indirect, by the Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Company and the Chief Financial Officer and VP Finance and Administration of the Company until such time as the Required Materials have been filed by the Company. The MCTO does not affect the ability of shareholders who are not insiders of the Company to trade their securities.
As announced by the Company on July 2, 2020, the Annual Materials were filed with the applicable securities regulatory authorities and are available on the SEDAR database at www.sedar.com.
The Company's board of directors and its management confirm that they are continuing to work to meet the Company's obligations relating to the Interim Materials and the Company continues to expect to file the Interim Materials on or about July 31, 2020.
As required by the alternative information guidelines specified by NP 12-203, the Company reports that since the Default Announcement and its default status reports of June 17, 2020 and July 2, 2020, except as stated in this Default Status Report, there have not been any changes to the information set out in the Default Announcement that would reasonably be expected to be material to an investor nor any failure by the Company to fulfill its intentions as stated therein with respect to satisfying the provisions of the alternative information guidelines, and there are no additional defaults or anticipated defaults subsequent to the disclosure therein, other than the delay in filing the Required Materials. Further, there is no additional material information concerning the affairs of the Company that has not been generally disclosed and there are no insolvency proceedings against the Company as of the date of this Default Status Report.
Until the Required Materials have been filed, the Company intends to continue to satisfy the provisions of the alternative information guidelines set out in NP 12-203 by issuing bi-weekly default status reports in the form of further press releases, which will also be filed on SEDAR. To the extent applicable, the Company is scheduled to file its next default status report on or about July 30, 2020.
