Pacific Rim Cobalt Corp. Provides Bi-Weekly Status Update Regarding Management Cease Trade Order
VANCOUVER, May 30, 2019 - Pacific Rim Cobalt Corp. (the “Company” or “Pacific Rim”) announces that further to its application for a Management Cease Trade Order (“MCTO”), which was granted on May 2, 2019, the Company is required to provide bi-weekly status reports in accordance with the alternative information guidelines in National Policy 12-203 (the “Guidelines”), until such time as the Company has completed and filed its audited annual financial statements and management’s discussion and analysis in respect of the financial year ended December 31, 2018 (the “Annual Report”).
The Company reports that, since its May 2, 2019 default announcement in respect of the MCTO (the “Default Announcement”), there has not been any failure by the Company to fulfill its intentions with respect to satisfying the provisions of the Guidelines, and there have been no additional defaults subsequent to such announcement. Further, Company management and its auditors have established a strategy and procedure for completion of Annual Report including details of the Company’s newly acquired Indonesian subsidiary, and will provide an estimate as to the anticipated completion timeframe as soon as possible. The Company’s administrative team in Jakarta, Indonesia is assisting with compiling all books and records of newly acquired subsidiary.
The Company advised that, due to the same integration issues causing a delay in completing and filing the Annual Report, that the Company’s unaudited financial statements for the three months ended March 31, 2019, and management’s discussion and analysis in respect thereof (the “Q1 Report”), will not be completed and filed today. Accordingly, at the close of business today, the Company will be in default of its Q1 Report filing obligations pursuant to National Instrument 51-102 Continuous Disclosure Requirements. The Company continues to work diligently to prepare the Annual Report and Q1 Report, and will continue to comply with the Guidelines until such deficiencies are remedied.
There has been no additional material information concerning the Company and its affairs since its Default Announcement that has not been disclosed.
