TORONTO, ONTARIO, May 21, 2021 – BitRush Corp. (CSE:BRH, Frankfurt:0XSN) (“BitRush” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that that the Ontario Securities Commission (the “OSC”) has granted an order (the “Revocation Order”) fully revoking the cease trade order issued by the OSC on December 2, 2016 (the “FFCTO”).
The cease trade order had been imposed by the OSC due to the failure of Corporation to file, its CEO and CFO certificates to accompany the interim financial statements and management’s discussion and analysis for the nine-month period ended for the year ended September 30, 2016 within the time required by Ontario securities laws.
The current directors and officers of the Corporation are as follows: Karsten Arend, President and Chief Executive Officer, and a Director of the Company; Keith Li, Chief Financial Officer and Secretary of the Company; Hansjoerg Wagner, Director of the Company and Edward (Ted) Boyd, Director of the Company.
Save for certain historical continuous disclosure materials the Corporation has been exempted from filing pursuant to the Revocation Order, the Corporation has filed all continuous disclosure materials required to be filed pursuant to applicable securities laws. These materials are available under the Corporation’s SEDAR profile at www.sedar.com.
The Corporation has filed the following documents on SEDAR: unaudited annual financial statements for the years ended December 31, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020 and the related Management’s Discussion and Analysis for such years and the CEO and CFO certificates required under National Instrument 52-109 in respect of the above-mentioned annual filings.
The Corporation has provided an undertaking to the OSC that it will hold an annual and special general meeting of shareholders within the next three months.
Notwithstanding the Revocation Order, the Company’s common shares which are listed on the Canadian Securities Exchange (the “CSE”) under the symbol “BRH” remain suspended from trading in accordance with the rules of the CSE which will continue until such time as the Company meets the requirements of the CSE for trading in the common shares to resume. The Corporation does not have any definitive plans in place for the operation of a business going forward. However, it is the intention of management of the Corporation to investigate opportunities going forward.
Karsten Arend, the President and Chief Executive Officer of BitRush stated: “We’re pleased and excited about having obtained this order which gives us the opportunity to finally move forward on a path towards success”.
