MagIndustries Announces Issuance of Management Cease Trade Order

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - April 13, 2015) - MagIndustries Corp. (TSX:MAA) (the "Company" or "MagIndustries") announced today that it has been granted a management cease trade order (the "MCTO") by its principal regulator, the Ontario Securities Commission (the "OSC"). As previously announced on March 24, 2015, the application for the MCTO resulted from the Company's inability to file by March 31, 2015 annual financial statements, accompanying management's discussion and analysis and related CEO and CFO certifications for the financial year ended December 31, 2014 (collectively, the "2014 Annual Financial Statements").

The MCTO restricts all trading in securities of the Company, whether direct or indirect, by the Chief Executive Officer or the Chief Financial Officer of the Company, until such time as the 2014 Annual Financial Statements have been filed by the Company. The MCTO does not affect the ability of shareholders who are not insiders of the Company to trade their securities or the Company's ability to issue shares.

The Company's inability to timely file the 2014 Annual Financial Statements, resulted from (i) the need to determine the impact on the Company's 2014 Annual Financial Statements of findings from the ongoing previously announced investigation and the need for additional discussion between the Company and Ernst & Young LLP as to certain accounting matters to enable them to complete their procedures and render an audit opinion.

The Company, together with its advisors, has developed a timeline setting forth the steps necessary to allow the 2014 Annual Financial Statements to be filed. The timeline is subject to change but has adopted June 1, 2015 as the target date for filing.

The Company confirms that it will satisfy the provisions of the alternative information guidelines under National Policy 12-203 respecting Cease Trade Orders for Continuous Disclosure Defaults for so long as it remains in default as a result of the late filing of the 2014 Annual Financial Statements. During the period of default, MagIndustries will issue bi-weekly default status reports in the form of further press releases, which will also be filed on SEDAR. The Company confirms that there are no insolvency proceedings against it as of the date of this press release. The Company also confirms that there is no other material information concerning the affairs of the Company that has not been generally disclosed as of the date of this press release.
