VANCOUVER B.C., March 12, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via NEWMEDIAWIRE - iTokk, Inc. (OTC PINK:IKTO) (the "Company"), is pleased to announce that on Mar 7, 2019 the British Columbia Securities Commission (BCSC) issued the Company a "Partial Revocation Order" to permit the completion of a private placement.
The Partial Revocation Order will allow the Company to complete a non-brokered placement of Common Shares or debt securities that are convertible into Common Shares for aggregate gross proceeds of up to US$250,000 (the Private Placement). The Company will rely on the exemption under section 2.3 of National Instrument 45-106 Prospectus Exemptions (NI 45-106). The intended use of proceeds for the Private Placement are for legal, accounting, and audit fees to bring the Company's financials current and fully reporting.
On October 9, 2010, the BCSC issued an order (the Cease Trade Order) under Section 164 of the Securities Act, R.S.B.C. 1996, c. 418 (the Act) that all trading in the securities of the Company cease until it files the required records referred to in the Cease Trade Order. The Company has applied to the BCSC under National Policy 12-202 Revocation of Certain Cease Trade Orders for an order under section 171 of the Act for a partial revocation of the Cease Trade Order to permit certain trades of its securities.
The Company intends to file an application for a full revocation of the Cease Trade Order after it brings all continuous disclosure filings current.
As the Private Placement would involve a trade of securities and acts in furtherance of a trade of securities, the Private Placement could not be completed without a partial revocation of the Cease Trade Order.
The Partial Revocation Order also allows the Company to further its previously announced acquisition of Water Street Profile Services Inc ("The Profile").
Kevin Penstock, CEO of the Company, stated, "The partial revocation sets the stage for us to bring all continuous disclosure filings current and complete the acquisition of The Profile and the private placement" Mr. Penstock further commented, "We are grateful to our shareholders for being so patient and we look forward to growing the business at a more rapid rate."
Pursuant to the previously announced Letter of Intent, the Company and The Profile will enter into negotiations of certain definitive agreements whereby the Company will acquire 100% of the shares of The Profile for a purchase price of US$4,000,000.
There is no guarantee that the Company will obtain the issuance of a full revocation order in the future from the BCSC.
