(CSE: MJ) (OTC Pink: TRLFF) (FSE: TLA) (“True Leaf” or the “Company”) announced today that the Management Cease Trade Order (“MCTO”) imposed by the British Columbia Securities Commission (“BCSC”) has been revoked. With this resolution of the MCTO, members of management are no longer precluded from trading the Company’s common shares.
On September 16, 2020, the Company announced that it had been granted an MCTO by the BCSC. The application for the MCTO was made in respect to the expected late filing of its annual financial statements, management’s discussion and analysis (“MD&A”), and the related officer certifications (“Certificates”) for the financial year ended March 31, 2020 (collectively, the “Annual Filings”) which were due July 29, 2020. The Company had relied on the temporary filing relief provided by BC Instrument 51-517 which provided an additional 45-day period for the Company to complete its Annual Filings.

On December 9, 2020, the Company filed an amended and restated MD&A and Certificates for the financial year ended March 31, 2020 as the MD&A did not include all of the selected annual information for each of the three most recently completed financial years as required under Item 1.3 of Form 51-102F1, of National Instrument 51-102 Continuous Disclosure Obligations. The Company is now current on its disclosure.
