Eat Well Group Inc. Announces Expected Delay in Filing Annual Audited Financial Statements

VANCOUVER, British Columbia--()--Eat Well Investment Group Inc. (CSE: EWG) (US:EWGFF) (FSE: 6BC0) (“Eat Well” or the “Company”) announces that the filing of the Company’s audited annual financial statements for the year ended November 30, 2021, the related management’s discussion and analysis and certificates of its CEO and CFO (collectively, the “Required Filings”) will be delayed until after the filing deadline of March 30, 2022 (the “Filing Deadline”).

Although the Company and its auditors continue to work diligently toward completing the Required Filings as soon as possible, the Company has made an application to the British Columbia Securities Commission (the “BCSC”) for a management cease trade order (“MCTO”). If the Company has not made the Required Filings on or before March 30, 2022, the MCTO, if granted, would restrict all trading in securities of the Company, whether direct or indirect, by the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer of the Company until the Required Filings are filed. There is no guarantee that an MCTO will be granted. If the MCTO is not issued by the BCSC, the applicable Canadian securities regulatory authorities could issue a general cease trade order against the Company for failure to file the Required Filings within the prescribed time period.

The Company has experienced certain delays in the preparation of the audited annual financial statements as it relates to some of the Company’s portfolio investments. Many complexities were involved with the multiple acquisitions completed by the Company, over a short period of time, and the subsequent audits have required thorough diligence, resulting in such delays. The Company is not aware of any specific accounting or audit concerns at this time. The Company is working diligently with its accounting staff and external auditors to file the Required Filings and expects to be able to file the Required Filings no later than May 9, 2022.

Until the Required Filings are filed, the Company intends to comply with the provisions of the alternative information guidelines as set out in National Policy 12-203 Management Cease Trade Orders for as long as it remains in default, including the issuance of bi-weekly default status reports in the form of a news release.
