(“Just Energy” or the “Company”) (NEX:JE.H; OTC:JENGQ), a retail energy provider specializing in electricity and natural gas commodities and bringing energy efficient solutions and renewable energy options to customers, announced today that it has filed a notification of late filing on Form 12b-25 with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission in connection with its annual report, including the annual audited financial statements and management discussion and analysis, for the year ended March 31, 2022 (the “Annual Filings”). The Company anticipates that it will file the Annual Filings on or before July 29, 2022.
