TORONTO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / October 25, 2022 / AI/ML Innovations Inc. ("AI/ML" or the "Company") (CSE :AIML)(OTCQB:AIMLF)(FWB:42FB) announces that further to its news releases dated August 19, 2022, August 30, 2022, September 13, 2022, September 27, 2022 and October 11, 2022, the Company's principal regulator, the British Columbia Securities Commission (the "BCSC") granted a management cease trade order (the "MCTO") on August 30, 2022, under National Policy 12-203 Management Cease Trade Orders ("NP 12-203"). Pursuant to the MCTO, Randy Duguay, the Chief Executive Officer, and Dave Cross, the Chief Financial Officer, may not trade in securities of the Company until such time as the Company files its annual audited financial statements, annual management's discussion and analysis and related certifications for the year ended April 30, 2022 (collectively, the "Required Documents"), and the Executive Director of the BCSC revokes the MCTO. The MCTO does not affect the ability of other shareholders to trade their securities.
As a result of circumstances reasonably linked to the Company's delay in filing the Required Documents, in addition to the default to which this default status report relates, the Company was not able to meet the deadline for filing its interim unaudited financial statements, interim management's discussion and analysis and related certifications for the three-month period ended July 31, 2022 (collectively, the "Interim Filings"). As a result of the Company's delay in preparing the Required Documents, the Interim Filings could not be properly completed in accordance with Canadian securities law and regulation. Under the securities laws of the provinces in which AI/ML is a reporting issuer, the Interim Filings were to be filed by September 29, 2022.
The Company's Board of Directors and management confirm that they are working expeditiously to file the Required Documents and Interim Filings, and expect to do so on or about October 28, 2022, and confirm that since the Company's news release dated September 13, 2022, there is no other material information respecting the Company's affairs that has not been generally disclosed. The Company continues to work with its auditor in relation to accounting issues raised regarding the consolidation of a France based investee entity.
Until the Required Documents and Interim Filings have been filed, the Company intends to continue to satisfy the provisions of the alternative information guidelines specified in NP 12-203 by issuing bi-weekly default status reports in the form of further press releases for so long as the Company remains in default of the financial statement filing requirement. In the event that the Company does not file the Required Documents and Interim Filings in a timely manner, the Canadian Securities Regulatory Authorities may impose an issuer cease trade order on the outstanding securities of the Company.
