Facedrive Inc. ("Facedrive") (TSXV: FD) announced today that, as a result of its leadership’s continued focus on protecting the health and wellbeing of Facedrive’s employees user network and on supporting its network of drivers and riders in response to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, it will be utilizing the temporary blanket relief granted by the Ontario Securities Commission in Ontario Instrument 51-502 Temporary Exemption from Certain Corporate Finance Requirements and Ontario Instrument 51-504 Temporary Exemptions from Certain Requirements to File or Send Securityholder Materials (and equivalent relief granted by the other Canadian securities regulators) to postpone the filing of the following continuous disclosure documents pursuant to National Instrument 51-102 – Continuous Disclosure Obligations: (i) Facedrive’s interim financial report for the quarter ended March 31, 2020 and related management’s discussion and analysis; and (ii) the executive compensation disclosure to be contained in its management information circular in connection with its annual general meeting of shareholders.
Facedrive currently expects to file its interim financial report for the quarter ended March 31, 2020 and related management’s discussion and analysis on or about July 10, 2020.
Facedrive has also announced that, as a result of ongoing concerns related to the spread of COVID-19, and in order to enable greater participation of its shareholders and a better forum for communication, Facedrive has decided to hold its annual meeting of shareholders in September 2020. Accordingly, Facedrive is relying on the temporary blanket relief provided by the Canadian Securities Administrators to postpone the filing of its executive compensation disclosure required under applicable securities laws until the filing of its management information circular in connection with the Meeting (the "Circular").
Further information related to the Meeting will be included in the Circular, which will be made available on SEDAR at www.sedar.com closer to the date of the Meeting.
Facedrive will continue to monitor conditions in light of COVID-19 and the changing expectations and restrictions on the number of people who can safely congregate, and reserves the ability to alter the format and conduct of this year’s Meeting based on changing conditions.
Until Facedrive has filed its interim financial report for the quarter ended March 31, 2020 and related management’s discussion and analysis, members of Facedrive’s management and other insiders are subject to an insider trading 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.
