MJardin Group, Inc. Announces Delay in Filing 2018 Annual Financial Statements of Sumtra Diversified Inc.

January 4, 2019

DENVER--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan 3, 2019--MJardin Group, Inc. (” MJardin ” or the ” Company ”) (CSE:MJAR), a leader in cannabis management, announced today that following the closing of its reverse take-over (“ RTO ”) of Sumtra Diversified Inc. (“ Sumtra ”) on November 13, 2018, it was not in a position to file Sumtra’s audited annual financial statements for the period ending August 31, 2018 before the required deadline of December 31, 2018.

MJardin has applied to the Ontario Securities Commission for the imposition of a management cease trade order under National Policy 12-203 – Management Cease Trade Orders (” NP 12-203 ”) throughout the duration of the default.

The management cease trade order, if issued, will generally not affect persons other than the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer of MJardin to trade in its securities. MJardin’s management is currently in a lockup period associated with the recent RTO and is restricted from trading independently of any management cease trade order that might be issued.

In the event that a management cease trade order is issued, MJardin intends on satisfying the provisions of the alternative information guidelines under NP 12-203 by issuing bi-weekly default status reports in the form of news releases for so long as it remains in default of the filing requirements to file Sumtra’s financial statements. MJardin confirms that there is no other material information relating to its affairs that has not been disclosed.

Other than the Sumtra annual financial statements for the year ended August 31, 2018, MJardin is up to date in its filing obligations, having previously filed on SEDAR its combined consolidated financial statements for the years ended December 31, 2015, 2016 and 2017 as well as condensed interim combined consolidated financial statements for the three and six months ended June 30, 2017 and 2018.
