The Company also provides this bi-weekly default status report (the “Default Status Report“) in accordance with National Policy 12- 203 Management Cease Trade Orders (“NP 12-203“). On April 20, 2023, the Company announced (the “Default Announcement“) that, for reasons disclosed in the Default Announcement, the filing of the Company’s Annual Filings would not be completed by the prescribed deadline of May 1, 2023. As a result of this delay in filing the Annual Filings, the Company’s principal regulator, British Columbia Securities Commission, granted the MCTO to the Company.
