TORONTO, May 29, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Class 1 Nickel and Technologies Limited (“Class 1 Nickel” or the “Company”) today announces that it intends to rely on the temporary blanket relief for market participants published on March 23, 2020 (the “Blanket Order”) by the Canadian Securities Administrators (the “CSA”) which provides for a 45-day extension to file its interim financial statements and interim Management Discussion and Analysis (“MD&A”) for the quarter ended March 31, 2020 (the “Q1 2020 Filings”).

The Company is relying on the temporary exemption granted pursuant to section 7 of Ontario Instrument 51-502 Temporary Exemption from Certain Corporate Finance Requirements with respect to the requirement to file its Q1 2020 Filings as per sections 4.4 and 5.1(2) of National Instrument 51-102 Continuous Disclosure Obligations and section 5.1 of National Instrument 52-109 Certification of Disclosure in Issuers’ Annual and Interim Filings.
