Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - July 16, 2020) - Tree of Knowledge International Corp. (CSE: TOKI) (the "Company" or "TOKI") has received notice from the Ontario Securities Commission (the "OSC") that the OSC will be converting the Company's previously received management cease trade order (the "MCTO") into a failure to file cease trade order (the "FFCTO"). The Company had requested a two week extension to the time provided in the MCTO, as it anticipates making the required filings on or before July 31, 2020. Under the MCTO, the Company had previously represented that it expected to be able to file its audited annual financial statements, accompanying management discussion and analysis and related CEO and CFO certifications for the year ended December 31, 2019 (the "Annual Filings") and interim financial statements, accompanying management discussion and analysis and related CEO and CFO certifications for the period ended March 31, 2020 ("Q1 Filings") on or before July 15, 2020. However, due to ongoing COVID-19 related access issues, the Company estimates that it will require up to an additional two weeks for the completion of the filings.
The FFCTO issued effective July 15, 2020, will prohibit the trading by any person of any securities of the Company in Canada, including trades in the Company's common shares made through the Canadian Securities Exchange. The Company expects the FFCTO to remain in place until such time as the Annual Filings and Q1 Filings have been filed and the Company receives an order from the OSC revoking the FFCTO.
An extension request was granted by the OTC Markets Group, so the FFCTO will not have an impact on the Company's quotation on the OTC under the symbol TOKIF.
The Company will issue a further press release when the Annual Filings and Q1 Filings have been made. The Company's board of directors and its management confirm that they are working expeditiously with the Company's auditors to have the Company's Annual Filings and the Q1 Filings completed.
The Company confirms as of the date of this news release that there is no insolvency proceeding against it and there is no other material information concerning the affairs of the Company that has not been generally disclosed.
