MONTREAL, QUEBEC -- (Marketwired) -- 07/04/13 -- Majescor Resources Inc. ("Majescor" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:MJX), announces that it has been granted a Management Cease Trade Order (the "MCTO") by its principal regulator, the Autorite des Marches Financiers (the "AMF"), and as such, the AMF has accepted the Company's request for such MCTO. As previously announced on June 28, 2013 by way of news release, the application for the MCTO was made by the Company in respect to the late filing of the Company's annual financial statements, accompanying management's discussion and analysis and related CEO and CFO certifications for the financial year ended February 28, 2013 (collectively, the "2013 Annual Financial Statements"), which were to be filed at the latest on June 28, 2013.
The MCTO restricts all trading in securities of the Company, whether direct or indirect, by the Chief Executive Officer, the Chief Financial Officer and the directors of the Company until such time as the 2013 Annual Financial Statements have been filed by the Company. The MCTO does not affect the ability of shareholders who are not insiders of the Company to trade their securities. However, the applicable Canadian securities regulatory authorities could determine, in their discretion, that it would be appropriate to issue a general cease trade order against the Company affecting all of the securities of the Company.
As previously announced, the Company was not in a position to timely file its 2013 Annual Financial Statements, primarily as a result of additional time required for its auditors to complete the audit of the Company's annual financial statements. The Company's board of directors and its management confirm that they are working expeditiously with the Company's auditors to meet the Company's obligations relating to the filing of the 2013 Annual Financial Statements and the Company continues to expect to file the 2013 Annual Financial Statements on or before July 26, 2013.
The Company confirms that it will satisfy the provisions of the alternative information guidelines under Policy Statement 12-203 respecting Cease Trade Orders for Continuous Disclosure Defaults for so long as it remains in default as a result of the late filing of the 2013 Annual Financial Statements. During the period of default, the Company will issue bi-weekly default status reports in the form of further news releases, which will also be filed on SEDAR. The Company confirms that there are no insolvency proceedings against it as of the date of this news release. The Company also confirms that there is no other material information concerning the affairs of the Company that has not been generally disclosed as of the date of this news release.
