TORONTO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / January 13, 2022 / GreenBank Capital Inc. (CSE:GBC) (the "Company") is providing this biweekly status report in accordance with National Policy 12-203 - Management Cease Trade Orders ("NP 12-203").
Further to its press releases dated November 12, 2021, November 30, 2021, December 13, 2021, and December 27, 2021 the Company has not yet filed its audited annual financial statements for the year ended July 31, 2021, the related management's discussion and analysis and CEO and CFO certifications (the "Annual Filings"), which were required to be filed on November 29, 2021. The Ontario Securities Commission (the "OSC"), GreenBank's principal regulator, has accepted the Company's request for, and the OSC has granted, a management cease trade order (the "MCTO") against the Company's chief executive officer and acting chief financial officer on November 30, 2021 in respect of the Annual Filings. The MCTO does not affect the ability of shareholders who are not insiders of the Company to trade their securities. It is expected that GreenBank will file the Annual Filings as well as its 2021 Q1 interim filings by January 31, 2022.
The delay in the Annual Filings is the result of the determination that the Company would benefit from a third-party analysis into the appropriate accounting and valuation for certain investments and assets held in its current portfolio, with the aim to ensure that the accounting conforms to the most current and applicable IFRS guidelines. In this regard, the Company has engaged a third-party IFRS specialist, who is actively working with the Company and its auditors to achieve this objective. As part of this process, the Company (with the assistance of the IFRS specialist) is determining what additional steps, if any, may be required to complete the Annual Filings in accordance with the prevailing IFRS guidelines. The Company continues to work expeditiously and expects to file its 2021 Annual Filings on or before January 31, 2022.
Pursuant to the requirements of section 10 of National Policy 12-203 (the "Alternative Information Guidelines"), the Company reports the following:
The Company confirms that it intends to satisfy the provisions of the Alternative Information Guidelines for so long as it remains in default of the filing requirements set out herein.
