Appointment of Auditor and Notice of Year-End Filing Delay
TORONTO and TAMPA, Fla., May 01, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Voxtur Analytics Corp. (TSXV: VXTR; OTCQB: VXTRF) (“Voxtur” or the “Company”), a North American technology company creating a more transparent and accessible real estate lending ecosystem, announced today the appointment of MNP LLP (“MNP”) as auditor of the Company, effective immediately. MNP is one of the largest full-service chartered professional accountancy and business advisory firms in Canada, with more than 100 offices across Canada. The reporting package relating to the appointment of MNP will be available on SEDAR (www.sedar.com) under the Company’s issuer profile within the time period prescribed by NI 51-102.
The Company also announced today that, further to its press release of April 3, 2023, it is unable to complete and file its audited annual financial statements (the “Statements”) for its financial year ended December 31, 2022, the related Management’s Discussion and Analysis, and Certifications by the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer (collectively, the “Required Filings”). Under National Instrument 51-102 – Continuous Disclosure Obligations of the Canadian Securities Administrators, the Required Filings must be filed by May 1, 2023 (the “Deadline”). The Company experienced an unexpected delay in filing the Required Filings by the Deadline due to the resignation of its auditor, Marcum LLP (see April 3, 2023 press release of the Company).
The Company has applied to the Ontario Securities Commission (the “Principal Regulator”), as well as the securities regulatory authorities in each of the other Provinces and Territories of Canada other than Quebec, pursuant to National Policy 12-203 – Management Cease Trade Orders (“NP 12-203”) for a Management Cease Trade Order (“MCTO”) as an alternative to a general Cease Trade Order in connection with the late filing (the “Default”) of the Required Filings. If the MCTO is granted, it will remain in effect until the Default is remedied. The issuance of a MCTO generally does not affect the ability of persons who are not directors, officers, or insiders of the Company to trade their securities.
The Company will endeavour to complete the Required Filings within sixty (60) calendar days following the Deadline.
The Company confirms that it will satisfy the provisions of the alternative information guidelines under NP 12-203 by issuing bi-weekly default status reports in the form of news releases for so long as it remains in default of the filing requirements described above.
The MCTO prohibits trading in securities of the Company, whether direct or indirect, by:
a) the Company’s Chief Executive Officer;
b) the Company’s Chief Financial Officer; and
c) the members of the board of directors of the Company or other persons or companies who had, or may have had, access directly or indirectly to any material fact or material change with respect to the Company that has not been generally disclosed.
Should the Company fail to make its Required Filings on or before July 1, 2023, the Principal Regulator can impose a cease trade order that all trading in securities of the Company cease for such period of time as the Principal Regulator may deem appropriate.
The Company has not taken any steps towards any insolvency proceeding and the Company confirms that there is no material information relating to its affairs that has not been generally disclosed.
