TORONTO, April 28, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Golden Leaf Holdings Ltd. (CSE:GLH) (OTCQB:GLDFF) (“Golden Leaf” or the “Company”), a pioneering cannabis solutions company and dispensary operator built around the recognized brands of Chalice Farms, provided the following update. 2019 fourth quarter and fiscal 2019 year-end financial statements and accompanying management’s discussion and analysis, and related CEO and CFO certifications (the “Annual Filings”) which were initially scheduled for release on April 29, 2020, will now be delayed by approximately one week. The Company now expects to file its Annual Filings on or before May 6, 2020.
On March 23, 2020, the Canadian Securities Administrators published substantively harmonized temporary exemptions from certain regulatory filing requirements that provide issuers with a 45-day filing extension for filings required on or before June 1, 2020 to allow issuers the time needed to focus on the many other business and financial reporting implications of COVID-19. The Company will rely on these exemptions with respect to the Annual Filings.
In the interim, management and other insiders of the Company are subject to a trading black-out policy that reflects the principles in section 9 of National Policy 11-207 Failure to File Cease Trade Orders and Revocations in Multiple Jurisdictions.
Since the date of the Company’s interim financial statements and management’s discussion and analysis for the third quarter of fiscal 2019, the following significant events have occurred and have been previously announced:
