CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - May 2, 2014) - DOT Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:DOT) ("DOT" or the "Corporation") announces that a temporary Management Cease Trade Order ("MCTO") has been issued by the Alberta Securities Commission ("ASC") against the Corporation's Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer as opposed to a general cease trade order against the Corporation. This MCTO prohibits trading in securities of the Corporation, whether directly or indirectly, by these individuals.
As summarized in Alhambra's News Release dated April 11, 2014 (the "Default Notice"), this action was expected due to the delay in filing its 2013 annual audited financial statements, management's discussion and analysis and CEO and CFO certificates (collectively, the "2013 Annual Audited Financial Statements").
Should DOT fail to file its 2013 Annual Audited Financial Statements on or before June 30, 2014, the ASC can impose a cease trade order on Alhambra such that all trading in securities of the Corporation cease for such period as the ASC may deem appropriate.
Pursuant to the requirements of Section 4.4 of National Policy 12-203 - Alternative Information Guidelines ("AIG"), the Corporation reports the following:
(i) There have been no material changes to the information contained in the Default Notice and the Corporation expects to file its 2013 Annual Audited Financial Statements on or before June 30, 2014;
(ii) There have been no failures with respect to the Corporation fulfilling its stated intention of satisfying the requirements of the AIG;
(iii) There has not been, nor is there anticipated to be, any specified default subsequent to the default which is the subject of the Default Notice; and,
(iv) There is no other material information concerning the affairs of the Corporation that has not been generally disclosed.
