Captor Capital Announces Cease Trade Order Related to Delayed Filing of Financial Statements for the Year Ended March 31, 2019

TORONTO, Aug. 07, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Captor Capital Corp. (CSE: CPTR; FRANKFURT: NMV; STUTTGART: NMVA; USOTC: CPTRF), (“Captor” or the “Company”), a cannabis-focused investment company, announced that a failure-to-file cease trade order has been issued by the securities regulators as of August 6, 2019 as a result of the previously announced delay in filing the Company’s annual audited financial statements, management discussion and analysis and related certifications for the financial year-ended March 31, 2019 (the “Annual Financial Filings”). The delay in filing was the result of a change in the accounting treatment of the Company’s investee companies being required by the Company’s auditors. The required change in treatment arose just prior to the completion of the audit and the filing deadline of July 29, 2019, leaving insufficient time to address the auditor’s comments before that deadline.

This late change in accounting treatment also resulted in the Company being unable to obtain the management cease trade order that the Company had announced it was applying for. A management cease trade order would have resulted in only certain senior officers and directors being unable to trade in the Company’s securities. However, securities regulators will only exercise their discretion to grant such an order in rare circumstances when it is requested within 2 weeks of a filing deadline. The securities regulators chose not to exercise such discretion in this case and accordingly all trading in the Company’s securities has been ordered ceased, subject to certain limited exceptions for trades outside of Canada.

The Company regrets this unnecessary delay in filing and the inconvenience to shareholders and intends file the Annual Financial Filings as soon as possible.
