May 25, 2020 – Vancouver, British Columbia – Harvest One Cannabis Inc. ("Harvest One" or the "Company") (TSX-V: HVT; OTCQX: HRVOF) announces the postponement of filing its interim consolidated financial statements, accompanying management’s discussion and analysis and related CEO and CFO certifications for the three and nine months ended March 31, 2020 (the "Interim Filings"), due to logistical delays and circumstances caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The Company is relying on the British Columbia Securities Commission’s BC Instrument 51-515 – Temporary Exemption from Certain Corporate Finance Requirements (the "Blanket Order").
Under the Blanket Order, a person or company required to make certain filings during the period from March 23, 2020 to June 1, 2020, as described in the Blanket Order, is provided with an additional 45 days from the deadline otherwise applicable under National Instrument 51-102 – Continuous Disclosure Requirements ("NI 51-102") to make such filings. Pursuant to the Blanket Order, the Company is relying on the relief therein for the filing of its Interim Filings as required by subsections 4.4(b) and 5.1(2) of NI 51-102 and section 5.1 of National Instrument 52-109 – Certification of Disclosure in Issuer’s Annual and Interim Filings ("NI 52-109") .
Until the Company has filed the required Interim Filings, all management and other insiders are subject to the Company's share trading and black-out policy that reflects the principles in section 9 of National Policy 11-207 – Failure-to-File Cease Trade Orders and Revocations in Multiple Jurisdictions.
Harvest One is continuing to work diligently and expeditiously to prepare and finalize its Interim Filings. The Company estimates that the Interim Filings required under NI 51-102 and NI 52-109 will be filed by June 30, 2020. The Company confirms that since the filing of its last interim consolidated financial statements on March 2, 2020, there have been no material business developments required to be reported by the Company under applicable securities laws and stock exchange requirements, other than those that have already been publicly disclosed.
