GameSquare Esports Inc. (CSE: GSQ; FRA: 29Q1) (" GameSquare " or the " Company "), an international gaming and esports company, announces today that, in connection with the Company's intention to list its common shares on the OTCQB ® Venture Market (a United States trading platform that is operated by the OTC Markets Group in New York) (the " OTCQB "), the Company has changed its auditor from McGovern Hurley LLP (" McGovern ") to Kreston GTA LLP (" Kreston "). Unlike McGovern, Kreston is registered with the Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (" PCAOB "), a non-profit corporation established by the United States Congress to oversee the audits of public companies. As part of the OTCQB listing process, the Company is required to retain the services of an auditor that is registered with the PCAOB. Consequently, at the request of the Company, McGovern has resigned as of the date of this press release. Kreston has been appointed as the successor auditor. In accordance with National Instrument 51‐102 (" NI 51 ‐ 102 "), the Company has filed a Change of Auditor Notice on SEDAR together with letters from both Kreston and McGovern, with each letter confirming agreement with the statements contained in the notice, as applicable. There were no reportable events (as defined in NI 51‐102) between McGovern and the Company.
The Company has not yet submitted but expects to submit an application for listing on the OTCQB; there is no guarantee that the Company's securities will be successfully listed. Listing is subject to the submission of necessary documentation and to meeting all applicable OTCQB listing requirements, including the clearance of a Form 211 by the United States Financial Industry Regulatory Authority.
