July 2, 2019 - TheNewswire - Eyecarrot Innovations Corp ("Eyecarrot" or the "Company") (TSX-V: EYC | OTCQB: EYCCF) announces that its principal regulator, the British Columbia Securities Commission (the "BCSC"), has accepted the Company's request for, and the BCSC has granted, a management cease trade order (the "MCTO"). As previously announced on June 20, 2019, the application for the MCTO was made by the Company due to a delay in the preparation and filing of the Company's annual audited financial statements for the financial year ended February 28, 2019, the accompanying management's discussion and analysis and the related CEO and CFO certifications (collectively, the "Required Filings").
The MCTO restricts all trading in securities of the Company, whether direct or indirect, by the Chief Executive Officer, the Chief Financial Officer and the directors of the Company until such time as the Required Filings have been filed by the Company and the MCTO has been lifted. The MCTO does not affect the ability of shareholders who are not insiders of the Company to trade their securities. However, the applicable Canadian securities regulatory authorities could determine, in their discretion, that it would be appropriate to issue a general cease trade order against the Company affecting all of the securities of the Company.
As previously announced, the Company was not in a position to timely file the Required Filings. Eycarrot's board of directors and its management confirm that they are working expeditiously to meet the Company's obligations relating to the filing of the Required Filings, and the Company continues to expect to file the Required Filings no later than July 31, 2019.
During the MCTO, the Company confirms that it will comply with the provisions of the alternative information guidelines set out in National Policy 12-203 respecting Management Cease Trade Orders for as long as it remains in default, including the issuance of bi-weekly default status reports, each of which will be issued in the form of a news release. The Company also confirms that there is no other material information concerning the affairs of the Company that has not been generally disclosed as of the date of this press release.
