Xybion Digital Investors
Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – August 14, 2023) – Xybion Digital Inc. (TSXV: XYBN) (“Xybion” or the “Company“) announces that its application for a management cease trade order (“MCTO“), as previously announced in a news release dated July 14, 2023, has been accepted by the British Columbia Securities Commission (the “BCSC“). The MCTO was issued by the BCSC, effective as of August 1, 2023, in connection with the delay by the Company in filing its annual audited financial statements, management’s discussion and analysis and related officer certifications for the financial year ended March 31, 2023 (collectively, the “Annual Filings“).
The completion of such Annual Filings was delayed as a result of the Company’s former auditor being disqualified by the Canadian Public Accountability Board from issuing audit opinions. The Company has since appointed Davidson & Company LLP as success auditor (the “Successor Auditor”) and is working with the Successor Auditor to complete the Annual Filings as soon as practicable.
The Company is providing this status update in accordance with National Policy 12-203 – Management Cease Trade Orders (“NP 12-203“). The Company intends to follow the provisions of the Alternative Information Guidelines set out in NP 12-203, including the issuance of bi-weekly default status reports in the form of news releases, for as long as the Company remains in default. The Company confirms as of the date of this news release that there has been no material change in the information contained in the default announcement issued July 14, 2023, and there is no other material information concerning the affairs of the Company that has not been generally disclosed. The Company anticipates filing the Annual Filings and remedying its default on or before September 29, 2023.
