VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Dec. 31, 2012) - LCTI Low Carbon Technologies International Inc. (CNSX:LCT)
NOT FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
LCTI Low Carbon Technologies International Inc. ("LCTI") announces today that it does not expect to file its audited annual financial statements for the fiscal year ended August 31st, 2012 and its management's discussion and analysis relating thereto (collectively, the "Required Filings") before the prescribed deadline of December 31st, 2012.
The expected delay in filing the Required Filings is principally related to the delays associated with the complexities of the Company's audit.
LCTI has and continues to make every effort to file the Required Filings in a timely fashion and expects to file the audited annual financial statements by Feb. 28th, 2012.
LCTI is in the process of making an application with the British Columbia Securities Commission ("BCSC") and other applicable securities regulators under National Policy 12-203 - Cease Trade Orders for Continuous Disclosure Defaults ("National Policy 12-203") requesting that a management cease trade order (an "MCTO") be imposed in respect of the late filings. There is no guarantee that an MCTO will be granted. If an MCTO is granted, an MCTO will prohibit the chief executive officer, the chief financial officer, the directors, other officers and other insiders of LCTI from trading in securities of Premier for so long as the Required Filings are not filed. The issuance of an MCTO does not generally affect the ability of persons who are not directors, officers or other insiders of Premier to trade in Premier's securities.
LCTI confirms that it will satisfy the provisions of the alternative information guidelines under National Policy 12-203 by issuing bi-weekly default status reports in the form of news releases so long as it remains in default of the filing requirements set out above.
