The Company confirms that there have been no material business developments or other material information relating to its affairs as of the date of this news release that have not been generally disclosed.Aurelio Useche, CEO of Relevium stated: “The delays in the filings of the required financials were due to two major facts. First, the Company engaged new auditors, RSM Canada LLP, which normally means an additional burden of a learning curve. The second reason has been the effect of the COVID-19 pandemic on preparation of the files, new disclosures and valuation assessments” Mr. Useche further states: “We are working diligently with our new auditors to complete both periods before the upcoming holidays”UPDATE ON THE SUPPLY SIDE OF OUR CONTRACT FOR PERSONAL PROTECTION SUPPLIESOn September 29, 2020 the Company announced the start of deliveries of Personal Protective Equipment (“PPE”) under its contractual obligations to supply US $20 Million dollars. The delivery of initial product batches has been subjected to delays related to major logistical issues outside of the company’s control.The Company has several outstanding PPE supply contracts in place and expects to deliver before the end of the current year. The Company remains cautious about ongoing issues outside of the company’s control as the global pandemic continues to influence, not only the demand, but also the supply side and logistics. The PPE products in question are manufactured and sourced in Asia and are subject to local Covid-19 restrictions, affecting both manufacturing and logistics.Aurelio Useche CEO for Relevium commented as follows: “The delivery of our PPE supply contracts has been affected by issues outside of our control. These are difficult markets to navigate with a high level of risk and uncertainty. The global demand for PPE products has definitely made it a seller’s market, where the rules of orderly business conduct and common sense simply do not apply. We have an extensive team of partners managing the process, including H-Source Holdings (TSX-V:” HSI”) and we look forward to meeting our contractual obligations and commitments”About Relevium TechnologiesRelevium is a publicly traded Company that operates in the health and wellness industry with a primary focus on online distribution.
