BELGRADE, Mont.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Lattice Biologics Ltd. (TSX-V: LBL) (OTCBB: LBLTF) (“Lattice Biologics” or the “Company”) announces the Company has successfully filed all necessary reporting documents and the preceding MCTO was revoked as of May 1, 2018.
For the past few months, the Company provided default status reports in accordance with National Policy 12-203 – Management Cease Trade Orders. The Company’s audited annual financial statements, related management’s discussion and analysis and accompanying CEO and CFO certifications for the financial year ended September 30, 2017 (collectively, the “Required Filings”) have been completed as of April 30, 2018 for the prescribed period for the filing of such documents under Parts 4 and 5 of National Instrument 51-102 respecting Continuous Disclosure Obligations and pursuant to National Instrument 52-109 respecting Certification of Disclosure in Issuer’s Annual and Interim Filings, being September 30th, 2017.
As a result of the submission of the Required Filings, the British Columbia Securities Commission revoked the management cease trade order (the “MCTO”) on May 1, 2018 against the Company’s Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer. The MCTO restricted all trading in securities of the Company, whether direct or indirect, by the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer of the Company until such time as the Required Filings were filed by the Company. The MCTO did not generally affect the ability of shareholders who are not insiders of the Company to trade their securities.
In addition, the Company issued financial results for first quarter ended Dec. 31, 2017, and is in compliance with all necessary reporting requirements.
“We are pleased the British Columbia Securities Commission worked with us to ensure an orderly filing and to maintain the continued listing of Lattice Biologics Ltd. stock for our investors. The Company has entered into a new long term relationship with its auditors, Hay-Watson, to insure timely reporting in the future,” says Guy Cook, CEO.
