VANCOUVER, June 1, 2020 /CNW/ - Boreal Metals Corp. ("Boreal" or the "Company") (TSXV:BMX.V - News) announces the postponement of filing its interim financial statements ("Financial Statements") and its interim management's discussion and analysis ("MD&A") for the period ended March 31, 2020 due to logistical delays caused by COVID-19. The Company is relying on the British Columbia Securities Commission blanket order in BC Instrument 51-515 Temporary Exemption from Certain Corporate Finance Requirements (the "Blanket Order").
Recent events pertaining to COVID-19 have impacted the ability of the Company and its employees to rely on timely information and to prepare the Financial Statements and MD&A. Under the Blanket Order, a person or company required to make certain filings during the period from March 23, 2020 to June 1, 2020, as described in the Blanket Order, is provided with an additional 45 days from the deadline otherwise applicable under British Columbia securities laws to make such filings.
Pursuant to the Blanket Order, the Company is relying on the relief therein for the filing of its Financial Statements as required by subsection 4.4(b) of National Instrument 51-102 Continuous Disclosure Requirements ("NI 51-102") and the filing of its MD&A as required by subsection 5.1(2) of NI 51-102.
Until the Company has filed and announced the required Financial Statements and MD&A, all management and other insiders are subject to the Company's share trading and black-out policy 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 estimates that the required disclosure required by British Columbia securities laws will be filed no later than July 16, 2020.
The Company confirms that since the filing of its press release dated April 30, 2020 regarding its postponement, in accordance with the Blanket Order, of filing its annual financial statements and management's discussion and analysis for the financial year ended December 31, 2019, there have been no unreported material business developments. The Company continues to work towards filing its annual financial statements and management's discussion and analysis for the financial year ended December 31, 2019 on or prior to the extended filing deadline of June 14, 2020.
