VANCOUVER, British Columbia, May 04, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Reservoir Capital Corp. (“REO” or the “Company“) announces that it has encountered delays in completing its audited financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2020 because REO, its subsidiary Kainji Power Holding Limited and its primary hydro investments all share a fiscal year ending December 31 and these entities have encountered COVID-19 related delays in preparing their respective financial statements. As a result, the Company has applied for, and has been granted, a Management Cease Trade Order (“MCTO”) by the British Columbia Securities Commission. Because of the delays, the Company will file its annual audited financial statements, management’s discussion and analysis, and CEO and CFO certificates (collectively, the “2020 Annual Financial Statements”) after the filing deadline of April 30, 2021 as prescribed by National Instrument 51-102 – Continuous Disclosure Obligations (“NI 51-102”).
The Company currently expects to file the 2020 Annual Financial Statements on or before June 30, 2021 and will issue a news release announcing completion of such filings at such time. Until then, the Company intends to comply with the provisions of the alternative information guidelines as set out in National Policy 12-203 – Management Cease Trade Orders for as long as it remains in default, including the issuance of bi-weekly default status reports, each of which will be issued in the form of a news release.
During the MCTO, the general investing public will continue to be able to trade in the Company’s listed common shares; however, the Company’s Chief Executive Officer, Chief Financial Officer and such other directors, officers and persons as determined by the applicable regulatory authorities, will not be able to trade the Company’s shares.
