Vancouver, British Columbia ––iMining Technologies Inc. (TSX-V: IMIN) (the “Company” or “iMining” announces that as a result of delays in the completion of its audit, the Company will be unable to file its financial statements and accompanying management’s discussion and analysis for the financial year ended May 31, 2021 (collectively, the “Annual Filings”) by September 28, 2021, being the date that such filings are due under applicable Canadian securities law requirements. The late filing is due in part, to the treatment of the acquisition of CanETH Staking Services Inc. (see news release dated March 22, 2021) as a business combination requiring an independent business valuation, the preparation and audit review of which will result in a delayed filing.
In response to the reporting delay, the Company has applied to the British Columbia Securities Commission for a management cease trade order (the “MCTO”) which restricts management from trading in securities of the Company until the Annual Filings are filed. The Company currently expects to file the Annual Filings on or before October 22, 2021 and will issue a press release announcing completion of these filings at such time. Until the Company files the Annual Filings, it will comply with the alternative information guidelines set out in National Policy 12-203 – Management Cease Trade Order. The guidelines, among other things, require the Company to issue biweekly default status reports by way of a news release for as long as the Annual Filings have not been filed. During the MCTO, the general investing public will continue to be able to trade in the Company’s shares.
The Company confirms that, other than as disclosed in prior press releases and material change reports, there have been no material business developments since the filing on April 28, 2021 of the Company’s latest interim financial reports for the period ended February 28, 2022.
