Melior Announces Delay in Filing 2019 Financial Results

TORONTO, Oct. 24, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Melior Resources Inc. (TSXV: “MLR”) (“Melior” or the “Company”) announces that it expects a delay of approximately 30 days in filing its audited annual financial statements, management’s discussion and analysis and related officer certifications for the year ended June 30, 2019 (collectively, the “Annual Financial Filings“), which are required to be filed on October 28, 2019 (the “Filing Deadline”).  Due to the recent appointment of voluntary administrators to the Company’s Australian subsidiaries as detailed in its press release of September 9, 2019, the Company is unable to complete all the procedures necessary for the Company’s Auditors, MNP LLP, to be able to render an audit opinion by the Filing Deadline.

In connection with the anticipated filing delay, the Company applied to the applicable Canadian securities regulators for the issuance of a management cease trade order which would restrict trading in securities of the Company by the Company’s Interim Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer.  This application was rejected and as such, a cease trade order is expected to be issued against the Company commencing after October 28, 2019, until such time as the Annual Financial Filings are released, currently expected before end of November 2019.

The Company confirms as of the date of this news release that there is no insolvency proceeding against it other than the appointment of administrators of its Australian subsidiaries Goondicum Resources Pty Ltd. and Melior Australia Pty Ltd., as disclosed in the Company’s news release on September 9, 2019, and there is no other material information concerning the affairs of the Company that has not been generally disclosed.
