Vancouver, British Columbia - TheNewswire - August 21, 2020 - Future Farm Technologies Inc. ("Future Farm") (CSE:FFT) (CNSX:FFT.CN) (OTC:FFRMF) wishes to advise its valued shareholders that the management team ("Management") is currently working diligently to finalize its audited financial statements and the related management's discussion and analysis ("MD&A") for the year-ended February 29, 2020. With the majority of the Company's operations being located in the United States, COVID-19 has caused delays to the audit that are beyond Management's control due to the ongoing border closure with the United States and other travel restrictions arising from the ongoing pandemic.
Management was able to address certain areas of the audit which required immediate attention, such as inventories of biological assets, earlier this year before travel restrictions were in place. All resources available to Future Farm are being used to expedite this process and ensure that shareholder value is not lost due to a prolonged cease trade.
The Company confirms that it has the financial resources necessary to complete the audit, and now anticipates being in a position to file the audited financial statements for the year-ended February 29, 2020, and their related MD&A (collectively, the "Required Filings"), by October 15, 2020.
"Our recent merger with High Purity Natural Products added an important, revenue generating operating asset which will be key in achieving our goal to be a leading supplier of top-quality health and wellness products, including those made from hemp. We are in a strong position to grow the business and create shareholder value even as we manage through this challenge," said Bill Gildea, CEO of Future Farm.
The Company is now subject a general cease trade order issued by the British Columbia Securities Commission ("BCSC"). It is anticipated that the general cease trade order will remain in effect, and trading in the securities of the Company will be suspended, until the Required Filings are completed.
