Vancouver, British Columbia – May 31, 2022. Zinc One Resources Inc. (NEX: Z.H) (“Zinc One” or the “Company”) announces that it has made an application to the British Columbia and Alberta Securities Commission to approve a temporary management case trade order (“MCTO”) under National Policy 12-203 Cease Trade Orders for Continuous Disclosure Defaults (“NP 12-203”), which, if granted, will prohibit trading securities by the Company by the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer of the Corporation until such time as the Required Filings (defined below) and all continuous disclosure requirements have been filed by the Company, and the MCTO has been lifted. During the period in which the MCTO is effective, the general public, who are not insiders of the Company, will continue to be able to trade in the Company’s listed securities. The MCTO application has been made but there is not guarantee or assurance that the MCTO will be granted.
The Company expects it will be unable to file its audited financial statements for the year ended February 28, 2022, and the management’s discussion and analysis and related Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer certificates for this period (collectively, the “Required Filings”) before the June 28, 2022 filing deadline (the “Filing Deadline”).
The Company’s failure to file its Required Filings by the Filing Deadline is due to the ongoing complications in coordinating with the Company’s auditors and collection of required data and documentation to complete the audit of the Company and its various subsidiaries, during the financial year end February 28, 2022.
The Company anticipates that it will be in a position to remedy the default by filing the Required Filings on or about August 15, 2022. The MCTO will be in effect until the Required Filings are filed.
During this MCTO, all management, officers and directors of the Company will be prohibited from trading in the Company's securities pursuant to the Company's black-out procedures.
The Company intends to satisfy the provision of the alternative information guidelines set out in sections 9 and 10 of NP-12-203 as long as the Required Filings are outstanding.
Change in Officers
The Company announces that Ms. Natasha Tsai has resigned from her position as Chief Financial Officer. Mr. Gunther Roehlig, interim CEO and director, has been appointed as Interim Chief Financial Officer to fill the vacancy. The Board of Directors would like to thank Ms. Tsai for all of her efforts as Chief Financial Officer.
