VANCOUVER, BC, CANADA, MAY 1, 2020, LINK GLOBAL TECHNOLOGIES INC. (CSE: LNK; FRA: LGT; OTC: LGLOF) (“LINK” or the “Company”) is providing an update on the status of the filing of its annual financial statements for the fiscal year ending November 30, 2019 and its interim financial statements for the three-month period ending February 29, 2020, including the accompanying management’s discussion and analysis and related CEO and CFO certifications.
As previously announced on March 30, 2020, the Company is relying on the 45-day extension being offered by various securities regulators in Canada, in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, for certain periodic filings that are required to be made on or before June 1, 2020. Specifically, the Alberta Securities Commission enacted Blanket Order 51-517, Temporary Exemption from Certain Corporate Finance Requirements (“BO 51-517”) and the British Columbia Securities Commission enacted BC Instrument 51-515, Temporary Exemption from Certain Corporate Finance Requirements (“BCI 51-515”)
The Company, being a reporting issued in Alberta and British Columbia, is relying on the temporary exemptions pursuant to BO 51-517 and BCI 51-515 with respect to the following: (i) the requirement to file audited financial statements for the year ended November 30, 2019 and the interim period ended February 29, 2020 (the “Financial Statements”) within 120 days of the Company’s financial year end and 60 days after the end of the mentioned interim period, respectively, as required by sections 4.2(b) and 4.4(b) of National Instrument 51-102 (“NI 51-102”); (ii) the requirement to file management discussion and analysis (the “MD&A”) for the period covered by the Financial Statements within 120 days of the Company’s financial year end (with respect of the annual financial statements) and within 60 days of the mentioned interim period (with respect of the mentioned interim financial statements) required by section 5.1(2) of NI 51-102; and (iii) the requirement to file certifications of the Financial Statements (the “Certificates” and together with the Financial Statements, the “Filings”) pursuant to sections 4.1 and 5.1 of National Instrument 52-109.
Recent events pertaining to COVID-19 have impacted the ability of the Company, its employees and its auditors to rely on timely information and to prepare the Financial Statements and MD&A. The Company is working closely with its auditors and anticipates it will file the Filings by May 15, 2020 (in respect of the annual financial statements) and June 16, 2020 (in respect of the mentioned interim financial statements).
In the interim, members of the Company’s management and other insiders are subject to a trading blackout that reflects the principles in section 9 of National Policy 11-207 Failure-to-File Cease Trade Orders and Revocations in Multiple Jurisdictions.
The Company confirms there have been no material business developments other than those that have been previously disclosed in the Company's news releases and filings.
