Toronto, Ontario–(Newsfile Corp. – December 31, 2021) – High Fusion Inc. (CSE: FUZN) (“High Fusion” or the “Company“) announced that, as requested by the Company, it has been granted a Management Cease Trade Order (“MCTO“) today by the Ontario Securities Commission (“OSC“) as a result of its December 16, 2021 announcement that it would be late in filing its interim financial statements for the three month period ended October 31, 2021 and related Management’s Discussion & Analysis, and CEO and CFO certification of filings (collectively, the “Q1 2022 Filings“).
The late filing is due to the complexity associated with consolidating the purchase of the assets and business of OutCo Labs Inc. completed on August 31, 2021. In order to complete the process, the Issuer will establish a timetable with its audit committee with the aim of completing specific tasks in the process on a daily basis.
As a result of this delay in filing, the OSC, the principal regulator of the Company, today issued a MCTO, which imposed restrictions on all trading in and all acquisitions of securities of the Company, whether direct or indirect, by the Chief Executive Officer and the Chief Financial Officer of the Company. The MCTO will not affect the ability of persons who are not insiders of the Company to trade its securities.
The Company intends to satisfy the provisions of the Alternative Information Guidelines as set out in National Policy 12-203 so long as the Q1 2022 Filings are outstanding. This includes the issuance of further by-weekly default status reports, each of which will be issued in the form of a press release. A general cease trade order may be issued if the Company fails to file such default status reports on a timely basis.
