TORONTO, Jan. 21, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- EEStor Corporation (TSX.V: ESU) (“EEStor” or the “Corporation”) announces that it anticipates a delay in filing its 2019 audited financial statements and the related management’s discussion and analysis and certifications, which are required to be filed by January 28, 2020.

In connection with the anticipated delay, the Corporation has applied to the applicable Canadian securities regulators requesting that a voluntary management cease trade order (“MCTO”) be imposed to restrict trading in the Corporation’s securities by insiders of the Corporation, as opposed to a general cease trade order which would restrict all trading in the Corporation’s securities.  If granted, the MCTO would be in effect until the required filings are completed or until it is either revoked or varied.

The annual financial statements and annual management’s discussion and analysis and the associated audit work is in process, but the Corporation is unable to complete and file such materials pending the completion of the audit. Delays in completion of an ongoing private placement, as well as the engagement of a new auditor for the annual financial statements, has resulted in an extended timeframe for the audit. The Corporation expects the audit to be completed in the coming weeks and anticipates being in a position to file the annual financial statements and the related management’s discussion and analysis no later than February 28, 2020.

The Corporation confirms that it intends to satisfy the provisions of the alternative information guidelines described in Section 4.3 and Section 4.4 of National Policy 12-203 (Management Cease Trade Orders) for so long as it remains in default of the requirement to file the required filings on or before January 28, 2020.  The Corporation has not taken any steps toward any insolvency proceeding and the Corporation has no material information to release to the public.

The Corporation has made the foregoing representations in accordance with the requirements of applicable securities laws.
