TORONTO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / July 6, 2022 / RYAH GROUP Inc. (CSE:RYAH): The Ontario Securities Commission (‘'OSC'') has issued a failure-to-file cease trade order (‘'FFCTO'') on the trading of RYAH Group's subordinated voting shares listed on the Canadian Securities Exchange. This FFCTO is effective immediately.
At the Company's request a management cease trade order (‘'MCTO'') was issued by the OSC on May 3, 2022. The Company expected that it would be in compliance with its continuous disclosure obligations before the end of the two-month period which terminated on July 4, 2022, as contemplated by National Policy 12-203 for a MCTO.
Unfortunately, notwithstanding the best efforts of the new management and the Company's auditors, it was impossible to complete the needed work in time to meet the deadline. A key reason was that the previous management had not started the audit in a timely fashion.
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 the audit and to file the needed documents with the authorities. As par of its filing commitment, the Company will also need to file the March 31, 2022, quarterly financial statements, MD&A and CEO and CFO certificates.
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 in default.
The Company will also endeavour to issue regular news releases to keep the investing public apprised of the situation and the evolution of its audit and filing efforts.
