The Company has applied to the applicable Canadian securities regulatory authorities and received a management cease trade order related to the Company’s securities to be imposed against the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer of the Company to trade securities of the Company. The management cease trade order will be in effect until the 2020 Annual Financial Filings are filed, and requires that the 2020 Annual Financial Filings be filed on or around December 9, 2020.
