VANCOUVER, BC / ACCESSWIRE / April 29, 2020 / Aurwest Resources Corporation (CSE:AWR) (the “Company“) would like to provide an update on the status of the filing of interim financial statements, accompanying management discussion and analysis and related CEO and CFO certifications for the nine months ended February 28, 2020.
On March 18, 2020, the Canadian Securities Administrators (“CSA“) issued a notice stating that securities regulators will be providing coordinated relief consisting of a 45-day extension for certain periodic filings required to be made on or prior to June 1, 2020 as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. As such the British Columbia Securities Commission (“BCSC“) has enacted BC Instrument 51-515 – Temporary Exemption from Certain Corporate Finance Requirements (“BCSC 51-515“).
The Company will be relying on the temporary exemption pursuant to BCSC 51-515 in respect to the following provisions:
- the requirement to file interim financial statements for the nine month period ended February 28, 2020 (the “Interim Financial Statements“) within 60 days of the Company’s third quarter as required by section 4.4(b) of NI 51-102;
- the requirement to file management discussion and analysis (the “Interim MD&A“) for the period covered by the Interim Financial Statements within 60 days of the Company’s third quarter as required by section 5.1(2) of NI 51-102;
- the requirement to file certifications of the Interim Financial Statements (the “Certificates” and together with the Interim Financial Statements, the “Interim Filings“) pursuant to section 5.1 of National Instrument 52-109.
The Company confirms that since the filing of its condensed interim financial statements for the period ended November 30, 2019, there have been no material business developments other than those disclosed through Company press releases.
The Company is continuing to work diligently and expeditiously to file the Interim Filings on or before June 14, 2020. In the interim, management and other insiders of the Company are subject to a trading black-out policy as described, in principle, in section 9 of National Policy 11-207 – Failure to File Cease Trade Orders and Revocations in Multiple Jurisdictions.
