LONDON, UK and DUBLIN, IRELAND / ACCESSWIRE / November 1, 2022 / (CSE:POKO): Poko Group Innovations, an award-winning UK & EU-based collection of CBD-focused companies that bring innovative, inspiring solutions to the CBD industry, announces that it will be issued a cease trade order (“CTO”) by the Ontario Securities Commission by virtue of not filing the following periodic disclosure documents (the “Annual Filings”) by the filing deadline of October 31, 2022:
Audited annual financial statements for the year ended June 30, 2022;
Management’s discussion and analysis relating to the audited annual financial statements for the year ended June 30, 2022; and
Certification of the foregoing filings as required by National Instrument 52-109 Certification of Disclosure in Issuers’ Annual and Interim Filings.
The Company’s 2021-22 audit currently remains ongoing due in large part to the Company’s business in three regions, Canada, UK and the EU. Although the audit continues to progress well, it has taken longer to complete than originally anticipated in part due as Company moves from one with minimal sales to one launching multiple SKUs into two regions and reporting in a third, with each region having local as well as IFRS reporting standards. Notwithstanding the resultant delay, the Company will continue to operate normally and management is working diligently with its auditors to complete the Annual Filings. The Company anticipates that it will complete the Annual Filings on or before December 15th, 2022. Revocation of the CTO is expected to occur after the Annual Filings are made.
The Company is not currently subject to any insolvency proceedings. A copy of the CTO will be posted on the Ontario Securities Commission website once issued. There is no assurance that the Company will be able to remedy its filing default and have the CTO lifted in a timely manner or at all. If the default is remedied within 90 days of the date of the CTO, including any annual or interim financial statements, MD&A and certifications that subsequently became due, the filing of the documents constitutes the application to revoke the CTO and no application fee is required under Appendix C of OSC Rule 13-502
