VANCOUVER, British Columbia--Wellbeing Digital Sciences Inc. (“Wellbeing” or the “Company”) (NEO: MEDI) (OTC: KONEF) (FRA: SQ2) is providing this update with respect to the management cease trade order (“MCTO”) issued by the British Columbia Securities Commission (“BCSC”) on January 31, 2023, as previously announced by the Company on February 1, 2023 (the “Default Announcement”). The MCTO was issued in connection with the filing of the Company’s audited annual financial statements for the year ended October 31, 2022, and the related management’s discussion and analysis and certifications (the “Annual Filings”).
In a follow up to the Company’s bi-weekly status update of February 16, 2023, the Company continues to work towards finalizing its Annual Filings and expects to be in a position to file on or before March 31, 2023.
The Company is providing this status update in accordance with National Policy 12-203 Management Cease Trade Orders ("NP 12-203"). The Company intends to follow the provisions of the Alternative Information Guidelines under NP 12-203, by issuing bi-weekly default status reports in the form of news releases so long as the Company remains in default.
Accordingly, the Company confirms that since the Default Announcement:
- There have been no material changes to the information contained in the Default Announcement that would reasonably be expected to be material to an investor;
- There have been no failures by the Company to fulfill its stated intentions with respect to satisfying the provisions of the alternative information reporting guidelines under NP 12-203;
- There has not been, nor is there anticipated to be, any specified default subsequent to the default which is the subject of the Default Announcement; and
- There have been no material changes in respect of the Company’s affairs that have not been generally disclosed.
During the MCTO, the general investing public will continue to be able to trade in the Company's common shares listed on the NEO Exchange. However, the Company's Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer will not be able to trade in the Company's shares until the Annual Filings have been filed and the Executive Director of the BCSC revokes the MCTO.
