LGC CAPITAL PROVIDES SECOND DEFAULT STATUS REPORT
LGC Capital Ltd. is providing this second biweekly default status report in accordance with Policy Statement 12-203 -- Management Cease Trade Orders. On Jan. 25, 2019, the corporation made the announcement (the default announcement) that, for the reasons set out in the default announcement, the filing of the corporation's audited annual financial statements, related management's discussion and analysis, and accompanying chief executive officer and chief financial officer certifications for the financial year ended Sept. 30, 2018, would not be completed by the prescribed period for the filing of such documents.
As a result of this delay in the filing of the required filings, the Autorite des marches financiers (AMF), as principal regulator, granted a management cease trade order (MCTO) on Jan. 29, 2019, against the corporation's CEO, CFO and directors, as opposed to a general cease trade order against the corporation. The MCTO prohibits all trading in securities of the corporation, whether directly or indirectly, by the corporation's CEO, CFO and directors. The MCTO does not affect the ability of shareholders who are not insiders of the corporation 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 corporation affecting all of the securities of the corporation.
LGC's board of directors and management confirm that they have been working expeditiously to meet the corporation's obligations relating to the filing of the required filings and that the audit is continuing and nearing completion. The corporation expects to be in a position to file the required filings within the next few days.
Pursuant to the provisions of the alternative information guidelines specified in Policy Statement 12-203, the corporation reports that since the default announcement:
There have been no material changes to the information contained in the default announcement;
- There have been no failures by the corporation to fulfill its stated intentions with respect to satisfying the provisions of the alternative reporting guidelines;
- There has not been, nor is there anticipated to be, any specified default subsequent to the default which is the subject of the default announcement;
- There is no other material information respecting the corporation's affairs that has not been generally disclosed.
Until the required filings have been filed, the corporation intends to continue to satisfy the provisions of the alternative information guidelines specified in Policy Statement 12-203 by issuing biweekly default status reports in the form of further press releases, which will also be filed on SEDAR. The corporation would file, to the extent applicable, its next default status report on or about March 11, 2019.
