First Quarter 2020 Financial Results

The Company also provided an update on the status of the filing of its 2020 first quarter financial results and accompanying management’s discussion and analysis for the period ended March 31, 2020 (collectively, the “Q1 Disclosure Documents”), which were initially required to be filed by June 1, 2020 under NI 51-102.

On March 23, 2020, the Canadian Securities Administrators published substantively harmonized temporary exemptions from certain regulatory filing requirements that provide issuers with a 45-day filing extension for filings required on or before June 1, 2020 to allow issuers the time needed to focus on the many other business and financial reporting implications of COVID-19. The Company will rely on the exemption granted under BC Instrument 51-515 – Temporary Exemption from Certain Corporate Finance Requirements with respect to the Q1 Disclosure Documents.

In the interim, management and other insiders of the Company are subject to a 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.

Other than COVID-19 related matters and as previously disclosed by the Company in its news releases dated January 28, March 19, May 4, 2020 and May 11, 2020, and those stated above in this release, there have been no material business developments since the date of the Company’s most recent filing of its interim Financial Statements and Management Discussion and Analysis.

Flower One continues to expect financial results in-line with its previously reported figures, including preliminary financial results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2019 announced on March 9, 2020 (see here for news release) and preliminary results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2020 announced on April 6, 2020 (see here for news release).

Executive Compensation Disclosure

The Company will rely on BC Instrument 51-516 – Temporary Exemptions from Certain Requirements to File or Send Securityholder Materials to be exempted from its executive compensation disclosure requirements. The Company will extend its deadline to satisfy such requirements and will send its annual general meeting (“AGM”) information circular containing its executive compensation disclosure required under applicable securities laws on or before December 31, 2020. The Company is considering an appropriate time and format for its AGM and will provide information on the timing of its AGM and the filing of its executive compensation disclosure when it has appropriately considered all the issues.
