Toronto, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – September 18, 2023) – Canntab Therapeutics Limited (CSE: PILL) (OTC Pink: CTABF) (FSE: TBF1) (the “Corporation“) announces that the Ontario Securities Commission (the “OSC“) has rejected the Corporation’s application for a management cease trade order (the “MCTO“) dated September 14, 2023, as the Corporation is not viewed as having met all of the criteria for an MCTO.
The Corporation filed the MCTO application with the OSC due to an anticipated delay in filing its audited annual financial statements and management discussion & analysis for the financial year ended May 31, 2023, and the certification of the foregoing filings as required by National Instrument 52-109 Certification of Disclosure in Issuers’ Annual and Interim Filings (collectively, the “Documents“). The Documents are required to be filed by September 28, 2023 (the “Filing Deadline“). If the Documents are not filed by the Filing Deadline, the Corporation anticipates the imposition by the OSC of a Failure-to-File Cease Trade Order (“FFCTO“).
The default is anticipated due to its difficulty in raising capital to pay the auditors, which was caused by challenging market conditions.
