TORONTO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Tokens.com Corp. (CBOE Exchange Canada: COIN) (Frankfurt Stock Exchange: 76M) (OTCQB US: SMURF) (“Tokens.com” or the “Company”), a technology company that builds immersive experiences in 3D internet environments and owns an inventory of cryptocurrencies, today announced that it expects to complete and file its 2023 Annual Filings (as defined below) on or before January 31, 2024. Because the 2023 Annual Filings will be filed following the requisite filing date of December 29, 2023, the Company has applied to the Ontario Securities Commission (the “OSC”) for a management cease trade order that will prohibit the Chief Executive Officer and the Chief Financial Officer of the Company from trading in the securities of the Company until such time as the 2023 Annual Filings have been filed. The OSC has yet to make a decision on the aforementioned application.
The default is due primarily to delays on account of the Company’s recent change in auditor (which change was made effective as of August 23, 2023). The change in auditor has resulted in additional procedures and enhanced quality controls which has necessitated a request by the auditor for more time to complete the audit. The proposed filing timeline will provide the Company’s recently appointed auditor, Davidson & Company LLP, with sufficient time to complete the audit. Management notes that there are no disagreements or major unresolved issues with the auditor on any matter of the audit scope or procedures, accounting principles or policies, or financial statement disclosure.
The annual filings consist of: (a) the audited financial statements of the Company for the twelve-month period ended September 30, 2023; (b) the management’s discussion & analysis for the twelve-month period ended September 30, 2023; and (c) the chief executive officer and chief financial officer certification of filings under Section 5.1 of National Instrument 52-109 – Certification of Disclosure in Issuers’ Annual and Interim Filings (collectively, the “2023 Annual Filings”).
During the period of default and until filing of the 2023 Annual Filings, the Company intends to satisfy the provisions of the alternative information guidelines as required by National Policy 12-203 – Management Cease Trade Orders. The Company’s management and other insiders are subject to a trading blackout reflecting the principles contained in Section 9 of National Policy 11-207 – Failure-to-File Cease Trade Orders and Revocations in Multiple Jurisdictions until the 2023 Annual Filings have been filed.
The Company is not subject to any insolvency proceedings, and, other than as disclosed in the Company’s press releases, there has been no material information that has not been disclosed.
