TORONTO, April 30, 2020 /CNW/ – Newtopia Inc. (“Newtopia” or the “Company“) (TSX-V: NEWU), a telehealth enabled habit change platform focused on disease prevention, is providing an update on the status of the filing of its annual financial statements and its annual management and discussion analysis for the financial year ended December 31, 2019 (collectively, the “Annual Filings“).
On March 18, 2020, the Canadian Securities Administrators (CSA) announced that they will 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. Newtopia will rely on this exemption with respect to the Annual Filings in accordance with Ontario Instrument 51-502 – Temporary Exemption from Certain Corporate Finance Requirements.
The Company is continuing to work with its auditors to file the Annual Filings on or around June 8, 2020 and by no later than June 12, 2020. 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.
The Company confirms that since the filing of its final long-form prospectus dated March 30, 2020 which incorporated the Company’s interim financial statements for the nine months ended September 30, 2019, there have been no material business developments other than those disclosed through news releases.
