Pasinex Announces Postponement in Filing of 2019 Annual Financial Statements
TORONTO, April 16, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Pasinex Resources Limited (CSE: PSE) (FSE: PNX) (The “Company” or “Pasinex”) today announced that due to logistics and delays caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the Company is relying on the British Columbia Securities Commission’s (the “Commission”) blanket order BCI 51-515 to postpone the filing of its annual financial statements and management’s discussion and analysis (collectively, the “Annual Filings”) for the year ended December 31, 2019.
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Commission and other securities regulatory authorities in Canada have granted a blanket exemption allowing issuers an additional 45 days to complete their regulatory filings that were otherwise due during the period March 23, 2020 to June 1, 2020.The Company’s joint venture in Turkey continues to operate although a number of precautionary measures have been implemented to protect the health and safety of its employees. Where possible employees have been asked to work from home and high-risk employees have been asked not to report to work. In addition, as a result of travel restrictions, audit staff and Pasinex employees have been unable to visit the joint venture operation and head office. The entire audit process has been slowed as a result of inefficiencies of working remotely caused by limited access to paper-based supporting evidence, and time changes and language barriers that are more easily overcome when onsite visits are allowed. Currently, the Company anticipates being able to complete and file its Annual Filings by May 31, 2020.Until the Company has filed and announced the required Annual Filings, members of management and other insiders are subject to a trading black-out policy that reflects the principles in section 9 of National Policy 11-207 – Failure-to-File Cease Trade Orders and Revocations in Multiple Jurisdictions.There have been no material business developments since the date of the last interim financial statements, filed November 28, 2019, a copy of which is available on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.Steve Williams, President and CEO of Pasinex, commented, “Pasinex would like to thank its workforce, partners and all stakeholders for their understanding and support during this extraordinary time. Pasinex considers the health and safety of its personnel, customers, suppliers, and the communities in which it operates to be a top priority. The Pasinex management team is closely monitoring this public health crisis associated with the COVID-19 pandemic and has implemented precautionary health and safety measures and controls across its operations, based on the recommendations, or directives, issued by the public health authorities and governments in the various jurisdictions in which the Company operates. Pasinex will assess any new developments related to COVID-19 as they arise and will provide appropriate updates on our operations in a timely manner.”Visit our web site at: www.pasinex.comOn Behalf of the Board of Directors
