TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Feb. 11, 2014) - Penfold Capital Acquisition IV Corporation (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:SEL), announces that it has been granted a Temporary Management Cease Trade Order (the "Temporary MCTO") by its principal regulator, the Ontario Securities Commission. As previously announced on January 29, 2014, a MCTO was made by the Company in respect of the late filing of the Company's its annual financial statements, accompanying management's discussion and analysis and related CEO and CFO certifications of annual filings for the financial year ended September 30, 2013 (collectively, the "Required Filings").
The Temporary MCTO restricts all trading in securities of the Company, whether direct or indirect, by the Chief Executive Officer, the Chief Financial Officer and the directors of the Company, until such time as the Required Filings have been filed by the Company. All other parties are permitted to freely trade in the Company's securities. The Ontario Securities Commission has given notice of a hearing to be held on February 18, 2014, for the purposes of making the Temporary MCTO permanent if the Company has not remedied the default in the filing the Required Filings.
As previously announced, the Company was not in a position to timely file its Required Filings, primarily as a result of additional time required to complete the audit of the Company's annual financial statements. The Company's board of directors and its management confirm that they are working expeditiously with the Company's auditors to meet the Company's obligations relating to the filing of the Required Filings, and the Company continues to expect to file the Required Filings on or before February 18, 2014.
The Company confirms that it will satisfy the provisions of the alternative information guidelines under Section 4.4 of National Policy Statement 12-203 respecting Cease Trade Orders for Continuous Disclosure Defaults, for so long as it remains in default, by issuing bi-weekly default status reports in the form of further news 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 news 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 news release.
