Orion Nutraceuticals Inc., (CSE:ORI) (the “Company” or “Orion”) is providing this bi-weekly update on the status of a management cease trade order granted on October 1, 2019 (the “MCTO”) by the British Columbia Securities Commission under National Policy 12-203 – Management Cease Trade Order (“NP 12-203”). In its initial announcement of October 1, 2019, the Company stated that as a result of delays in completion of the Company’s audit, there would be a delay in the filing of the financial statements and accompanying management’s discussion and analysis of the Company for the fiscal year ended May 31, 2019 (the “Annual Filings”) beyond the period prescribed under applicable Canadian securities laws. The Company subsequently provided bi-weekly status reports on October 15, 2019 and October 29, 2019.

The reason for the default is due to the recent resignation of the Company’s Chief Financial Officer on July 31, 2019 and a change of the Company’s Chief Executive Officer on August 22, 2019; the Company has not had adequate time and resources available to complete its audit in the allotted time. The Company continues to work closely with its auditor and anticipates that its Annual Filings will be filed on or before November 29, 2019, and its interim financial statements for the three-month period ended August 31, 2019 will be filed shortly after.


During the MCTO, the general investing public will continue to be able to trade in the Company’s listed common shares. A blackout period is in effect, until all required records are filed and the MCTO is revoked.

Other than as disclosed in this news release, there are no material changes to the information contained in the news release dated October 1, 2019. The Company confirms that it intends to satisfy the provisions of NP 12-203 and will continue to issue bi-weekly default status reports until all required filings are completed and up to date.
