- the Corporation’s Management Discussion & Analysis for the year ended December 31, 2019, as required by section 5.1(2) of NI 51-102.
- According to the BC Instrument, during the period from March 23, 2020 to June 1, 2020, a person or company required to make certain filings as described in the BC Instrument has an additional 45 days from the deadline otherwise applicable under British Columbia securities laws to make the filing. ExGen expects to file the Documents by no later than May 29, 2020.
Until the Corporation has filed the Documents, members of the Corporation’s management and other insiders are subject to an insider trading black-out period as per its internal Insider Trading Policy that is consistent with the principles in Section 9 of National Policy 11-207 – Failure-to-File Cease Trade Orders and Revocations in Multiple Jurisdictions.
