Edmonton, Alberta--(Newsfile Corp. - March 6, 2023) - Radient Technologies Inc. (TSXV: RTI) (OTC Pink: RDDTF) ("Radient" or the "Company") announces that the Alberta Securities Commission ("ASC") notified the Company March 3, 2023 that its application for a management cease trade order ("MCTO") had been denied as it does not currently meet the eligibility criteria in NP 12-203 and that the ASC intends to issue a failure-to-file cease trade order ("FFCTO") on the trading of Radient's securities listed on the TSX Venture Exchange without further notice to the Company.
The MCTO application was submitted by the Company for a failure to file its interim financial statements for the nine-month period ended December 31, 2022, and the related Management's Discussion and Analysis (collectively the "Required Filings") by March 1, 2023, the deadline set out in National Instrument 51-102 Continuous Disclosure Obligations. For more information about the MCTO application, please see the Company's press release dated February 28, 2023, which is available under the Company's SEDAR profile at www.sedar.com.
Once the FFCTO is implemented, shareholders of the Company will be prohibited from trading in Radient's securities during the period of the suspension or until further notice. Every effort is being made by the Company to complete the Required Filings as soon as possible. The Company continues to believe that it will be able to complete the Required Filings by March 17, 2023, after which time the Company intends to work with the ASC to address concerns and have the anticipated FFCTO revoked.
The Company's management and board of directors wish to inform its investors, partners, and service and goods suppliers that it will continue working diligently and rapidly to finalize and file the Required Filings. The Company's management and other insiders will continue to respect the insider trading prohibitions under securities legislation before entering into any transaction involving securities of the Company.
