VANCOUVER, BC, Nov. 22, 2021 – Sunniva Inc. (“Sunniva”, the “Company”) (CSE: SNN) (OTC Pink Sheets: SNNVF) provides an update on several corporate related items.
Sunniva has applied to the relevant securities commissions for a partial revocation of the cease trade order applicable to securities of the Company issued on June 22, 2020, for failure to file certain financial documents (the “Cease Trade Order”) to permit a private placement financing to raise sufficient funds to cover the Company’s expenses, including expenses in connection with the audit of the Company’s financial statements, in compliance with applicable securities laws. There is no certainty that the securities commissions will grant such an order. Trading of the Company’s shares will continue to be suspended until the Cease Trade Order has been fully revoked.
Additionally, the Company would like to provide clarification on an inquiry from the shareholder call on October 25, 2021. Under the dispute resolution provisions of the Lease, any arbitration award issued by the Tribunal is binding on the parties and may be entered as a judgment by filing an action to confirm the award in Federal or California state court. In either forum, ordinarily appeal rights are very limited and do not extend to a review of the merits, but rather to other claims of severe prejudice, such as bias or misconduct of the Tribunal or procedural rulings that materially prejudice a party. Here, however, the parties agreed in the Lease to expand the statutory appeal rights somewhat. Specifically, the Tribunal’s ruling can be appealed and vacated should it commit errors of law or legal reasoning, as the Tribunal will be considered to have exceeded its powers by committing such an error.
Sunniva also announces the resignation of Interim CFO David Weinmann in his current full-time capacity. David has agreed to continue working with the Company in a part-time consulting role. David will continue to support and assist with the audit, arbitration and other corporate matters in his new role as a part-time consultant.
