Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - August 2, 2018) - Intercontinental Gold and Metals Ltd. (TSXV: ICAU) (the "Company") announces that it is late in filing its annual financial statements (the "Financial Statements") and management discussion and analysis ("MD&A") for the year ended March 31, 2018 on the prescribed deadline of July 30, 2018.
The Company has made an application with the applicable securities regulators under National Policy 12-203 — Cease Trade Orders for Continuous Disclosure Defaults ("NP 12-203") requesting that a management cease trade order be imposed in respect of this late filing rather than an issuer cease trade order. The issuance of a management cease trade order generally does not affect the ability of persons who have not been directors, officers or insiders of the Company to trade in their securities.
The Company has been unable to complete the required filings due to lack of response from certain suppliers, banks and individuals in Bolivia in supplying the requisite confirmation letters to the auditors of the Company. As a result of these delays, the Company requires additional time to procure the necessary documentation to complete the Financial Statements, MD&A and audit. The Company anticipates that it will resolve the issue and file the Financial Statements and MD&A on or prior to September 2, 2018.
The Company confirms that it will 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 for so long as it remains in default of the filing requirements to file its financial statements and MD&A within the prescribed period of time. The Company confirms that there is no other material information relating to its affairs that has not been generally disclosed.
