CALGARY, Alberta, May 14, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Helix Applications Inc. (TSX-V: HELX) (the “Company” or “Helix”) is providing 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 30, 2019 the Company announced (the “Default Announcement”) that, for reasons disclosed in the Default Announcement, the filing of the Company’s annual financial statements, CEO and CFO certifications and management discussion and analysis for the year ended December 31, 2018 (collectively, the “Annual Filings”) would not be completed by the prescribed deadline of April 30,  2019.

As a result of this delay in filing the Annual Filings, the Company’s principal regulator, British Columbia Securities Commission, granted a management cease trade order (the “MCTO”) to the Company. The MCTO prohibits all trading by the Chief Executive Officer and the Chief Financial Officer of the Company, and such other directors, officers and persons as determined by the applicable regulatory authorities, in securities of the Company until the MCTO is revoked.

The Company’s board of directors and management confirm that they are working expeditiously to meet the Company’s obligations relating to the filing of the Annual Filings, with the goal of filing prior to the July 2, 2019 deadline imposed under the MCTO. Pursuant to the  provisions of the alternative information guidelines specified by NP 12-203, the Company reports that since the Default Announcement, except as stated in this Default Status Report, there have not been any changes to the information contained therein that would reasonably be expected to be material to an investor; nor any failure by the Company to fulfil its intentions as stated therein with respect to satisfying the provisions of the alternative information guidelines, and there are no additional defaults or anticipated defaults subsequent to the disclosure therein, other than the delay in filing the Annual Filings. Further, other than as set forth below, there is no additional material information respecting the Company and its affairs that have not been generally disclosed and there are no insolvency proceedings against the Company as of the date of this Default Status Report. Until the Annual Filings have been filed, the Company intends to continue to satisfy the provisions of the alternative information guidelines specified by NP 12-203 by issuing bi-weekly status default reports in the form of further press releases, which will also be filed on SEDAR. The Company would file, to the extent applicable, its next default status report on or before May 28, 2019.
