PENTICTON, British Columbia, April 23, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Green Mountain announced today that due to logistical issues and delays caused by the COVID-19 virus, it is relying on the exemption provided in Ontario Instrument 51-502 Temporary Exemption from Certain Corporate Finance Requirements (and similar exemptions provided by other Canadian securities regulators) (the "Extension Instrument") to postpone the filing of the audited annual financial statements for the twelve-month period ended December 31, 2019 and notice of use of proceeds (together the "Documents").
The Extension Instrument provides Green Mountain with an additional 45 days from the deadline otherwise applicable under securities laws to make the filing. Until Green Mountain has filed the Documents, members of the Green Mountain's management and other insiders are subject to a trading blackout reflecting the principles contained in section 9 of National Policy 11-207 Failure to File Cease Trade Orders and Revocations in Multiple Jurisdictions such that they are in a blackout period until the end of the second trading day after the Documents have been disclosed by way of a news release. The securities of Green Mountain are not listed for trading in Canada or elsewhere.
Green Mountain expects to file the Documents as soon as possible, and in any event within the 45-day relief period provided by the Extension Instrument.
Green Mountain is required to file the Documents in Alberta and deliver the Documents in Saskatchewan and Ontario as it previously filed a Report of Exempt Distribution in those provinces under section 2.9 (the Offering Memorandum exemption) of National Instrument 45-106 Prospectus Exemptions in those jurisdictions.
