BOGOTÁ, Colombia, Aug. 21, 2020 — Medcolcanna Organics Inc. (TSX-V: MCCN) (“Medcolcanna” or the “Company”), a Canadian medical cannabis company with operations in Colombia, announces that due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Company intends to postpone the filing of its unaudited interim consolidated financial statements and accompanying management’s discussion and analysis and related CEO and CFO certifications for the period ended June 30, 2020 (collectively, the “Interim Filings“), which are required to be filed by August 29, 2020, under Sections 4.4 and 5.1(2) of National Instrument 51-102 – Continuous Disclosure Obligations.
On May 19, 2020, the Canadian Securities Administrators (CSA) announced that they would provide issuers with a 45-day filing extension for filings required from June 2 to August 31, 2020, to allow issuers the time needed to focus on the many other business and financial reporting implications of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Company will rely on this exemption with respect to the Interim Filings in accordance with BC Instrument 51-517 – Temporary Exemption from Certain Corporate Finance Requirements with Deadlines during the Period from June 2 to August 31, 2020. The Company is continuing to work diligently and expeditiously to file the Interim Filings and currently expects them to be filed on or prior to the extended filing deadline of October 13, 2020.
Until such time as the Interim Filings are filed, management and other insiders of Medcolcanna are subject to a trading black-out that reflects the principles in section 9 of National Policy 11-207.
The Company confirms there have been no undisclosed material business developments since June 1, 2020, the date of filing the Company’s 2019 year end and first-quarter interim financial statements for the period ended March 31, 2020, except as otherwise disclosed in this press release or previous press releases since that date.
