Toronto, ON; - TheNewswire - June 20, 2019 - Eyecarrot Innovations Corp (Eyecarrot) (TSX-V: EYC | OTCQB: EYCCF) announces that its principal regulator, the British Columbia Securities Commission (BCSC), has accepted the Company's application for a management cease trade order (the "MCTO"). The application for the MCTO was made by EYC as the company will not be able to file its annual audited financial statements, management's discussion and analysis and CEO and CFO certificates (collectively, the "2019 Annual Audited Financial Statements") by the filing deadline of June 28, 2019 as prescribed by National Instrument 51-102 - Continuous Disclosure Obligations ("NI 51-102").
During the period in which the MCTO is effective, the general investing public, who are not insiders of the Company, will continue to be able to trade in the Company's listed common shares. However, the Company's CEO and CFO will not be able to trade the Company's shares until such time as the Annual Filings have been filed by the Company and the MCTO has been lifted.
The Company has been unable to complete its audit due to [the withholding of certain financial records of the Company, which the Company has since re-created in full]. The Company anticipates that the audit will be completed, and the 2019 Annual Audited Financial Statements will be filed by July 31, 2019.
Until the Company completes the filing of the 2019 Annual Audited Financial Statements, the Company will comply with the alternative information guidelines set out in National Policy 12-203- Cease Trade Orders for Continuous Disclosure Defaults for issuers who have failed to comply with a specified continuous disclosure requirement within the times prescribed by applicable securities laws.
The guidelines, among other things, require the Company to issue bi-weekly default status reports by way of a news release so long as the 2019 Annual Audited Financial Statements have not been filed. In addition, the Company has made an application to the applicable regulatory authorities for a management cease trade order ("MCTO"). There is no certainty that such order will be granted. If a MCTO is granted, the general investing public will still be able to trade EYC shares, however, the Company's Chief Executive Officer, Chief Financial Officer and such other directors, officers and persons as determined by the applicable regulatory authorities, will not be able to trade EYC shares. If a MCTO is not granted, the applicable regulatory authorities may issue a cease trade order against the Company for failure to file the 2019 Annual Audited Financial Statements within the prescribed time period.
