Red White & Bloom Brands Provided Extension in Filing Annual Financial Statements
Vancouver, British Columbia – May 3, 2021 – Red White & Bloom Brands Inc., (CSE: RWB)(OTCQX: RWBYF) (the “Company” or “RWB”) announces today that as a result of delays to its audit, the Company’s annual financial statements and accompanying management's discussion and analysis for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2020 (the “Annual Filings”) were not finalized by April 30, 2021, being the date that such filings are due under applicable Canadian securities law requirements. The Company currently expects to file the Annual Filings on or before May 31, 2021 and will issue a news release announcing completion of such filings at such time.
The reason for the delay is due to the integration of subsidiaries acquired, the complexity of acquisition transactions and various delays caused by Covid-19 which collectively resulted in the Company not having adequate time and resources available to complete the audit in the allotted time. The Company is working with its auditor (MNP LLP) to complete the audit in a timely manner.
The Company has been granted by the British Columbia Securities Commission, as principal regulator for the Company, a management cease trade order under National Policy 12-203 - Management Cease Trade Orders. The Company confirms that it will satisfy the provisions of the alternative information guidelines under NP 12-203 by issuing biweekly default status reports in the form of news releases for so long as it remains in default of the noted filing requirements.
During the MCTO, the general investing public will continue to be able to trade in the Company's listed common shares; however, the Company's chief executive office and chief financial officer will not be able to trade in the Company's common shares.
