Prospect Park Provides Announces Cease Trade Order
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Feb. 07, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Prospect Park Capital Corp. (CSE:PPK) (the “Company”) announces further to its press release of January 27, 2023, that the Ontario Securities Commission (the “OSC”) has issued a Failure-to-File Cease Trade Order (“FFCTO”) pursuant to National Policy 11-207 – Failure to File Cease Trade Orders and Revocations in Multiple Jurisdictions dated February 3, 2023 in respect of the securities of the Company as a result of the Company’s inability to file its audited annual financial statements and management discussion & analysis for the financial years ended September 30, 2022 and 2021, and the CEO and CFO certificates, all as required by National Instrument 51-102 - Continuous Disclosure Obligations and National Instrument 52-109 - Certification of Disclosure in Issuers’ Annual and Interim Filings (collectively, the “Documents”).
As previously disclosed, the default was expected as the Company’s auditor has indicated it anticipates requiring additional time to complete its audit and management anticipates it may be necessary to engage an independent valuator to provide an opinion in respect of the acquisition values as at the year-end date in respect of two intangible assets the Company acquired during the year ended September 30, 2022 in order to properly consider if they can support the position to auditor in respect thereof.
The Company continues to work diligently and expeditiously with its auditors and expects to file the Documents as soon as possible with a current expectation of on or about February 20, 2023.
The FFCTO prohibits the trading by any person of any securities of the Company in each jurisdiction in Canada in which the Company is a reporting issuer, including trades in the Company’s common shares made through the Canadian Securities Exchange, for as long as the FFCTO remains in effect; however, the FFCTO provides an exception for beneficial securityholders of the Company who are not currently (and who were not as of February 3, 2023) insiders or control persons of the Company and who sell securities of the Company acquired before February 3, 2023 if both of the following criteria are met: (i) the sale is made through a “foreign organized regulated market”, as defined in section 1.1 of the Universal Market Integrity Rules of the Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada and (ii) the sale is made through an investment dealer registered in a jurisdiction of Canada in accordance with applicable securities legislation.
There is no assurance that the Company will be able to remedy its filing default and have the FFCTO lifted in a timely manner or at all.
The Company is not currently subject to any insolvency proceedings. The Company also confirms that there is no other material information concerning the affairs of the Company that has not been generally disclosed as of the date of this press release
