ParcelPal Provides Update on Status of MCTO

June 12, 2024 6:28 PM EDT | Source: ParcelPal Logistics Inc.

Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - June 12, 2024) - ParcelPal Logistics Inc. (OTC Pink: PTNYF) (CSE: PKG) (FSE: PT0) (the "Company" or "ParcelPal"), is providing an update on the status of a management cease trade order (the "MCTO") application that was announced on April 16, 2024 (the "Announcement") with its principal regulator, the British Columbia Securities Commission, who issued the MCTO on May 1, 2024. The Company applied for the MCTO in order to secure additional time for the Company to file its audited annual financial statements and the related management's discussion and analysis for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2023, (the "Annual Filings"), which were originally due on April 29, 2024. Preparation of the Annual Filings is also affecting the timely completion of the Company's interim financial statements, accompanying management's discussion and analysis and related certifications for the three months ended March 31, 2024 (the "Interim Filings").

The Company and its newly appointed auditors are working diligently to complete the Annual Filings and Interim Filings as soon as possible. However, due to the Company's previous auditor BF Borgers, having been terminated as a participating audit firm by the Canadian Public Accountability Board and their suspension by the US Public Company Accounting Oversight Board, the Company's newly appointed auditor must complete a full two-year audit of the Company's prior financial statements. The primary reason for this is that the Company's former auditor can no longer provide their consent to the previous financial statements. The Company is not aware of any material deficiencies or reportable events pertaining to the previously audited financial statements. This additional review will increase the time needed to complete and approve the Annual Filings and The Interim Filings. As a result of the foregoing, the Company now anticipates that it will be in a position to file the Annual Filings and Interim Filing on or before August 31, 2024 (collectively, the "Required Filings").

The MCTO prohibits all trading in the capital of the Company, whether directly or indirectly, by the Company's CEO and CFO until such time as the Required Filings have been filed by the Company and the MCTO has been lifted. The MCTO does not affect the ability of other shareholders to trade in the securities of the Company.

The Company confirms that since the date of the Announcement: (i) other than as described above, there has been no material change to the information set out in the Announcement that has not been generally disclosed; (ii) other than as described above, there has been no failure by the Company in fulfilling its stated intentions with respect to satisfying the provisions of the alternative information guidelines set out in NP 12-203; (iii) there has not been any other specified default by the Company under NP 12-203; and (iv) there is no other material information concerning the affairs of the Company that has not been generally disclosed.

The Company will continue to satisfy the provisions of the alternative information guidelines under NP 12-203 by issuing bi-weekly default status reports in the form of news releases until the Required Filings are posted and the MCTO has been lifted.
