Dynex Power Announces Late Filing of Accounts


Delay in filing Dynex Power Inc. Annual Financial Statements for 2015

Lincoln, England, May 1st, 2016 - Dynex Power Inc., a leading, high power semiconductor company, today announced that it has missed the deadline for filing its financial statements, related management’s discussion and Certificates of Filing (collectively, the “Annual Filings”) for the year ended December 31, 2015. Under the securities laws of the provinces in which Dynex is a reporting issuer, these materials were required to be filed by April 29, 2016. 

The audit of its annual financial statements is not yet complete. The Company faced increased demands for information and documentation at a time when it was preparing to implement a new ERP system. There is also on-going discussion with its auditor on the valuation of certain assets. The Company has not been able to meet these documentation demands and finalise the discussions with its auditor on asset values in the time available. The Company is working diligently with its auditor to complete the audit.  Based on its current expectations, Dynex anticipates that the Annual Filings will be filed by the middle of May 2016. 

Pending the filing of the Annual Filings, the Company intends to satisfy the alternative information guidelines required by National Policy 12-203 and will issue a Default Status Report on a bi-weekly basis during the default period. These reports will disclose any material change in the information contained in this news release as well as any other information required by the above mentioned National Policy. 

The Company intends to make an application to the Ontario Securities Commission (“OSC”) for a management cease trade order (“MCTO”), which would restrict all trading in securities of the Company, whether direct or indirect, by certain management of the Company. The MCTO would not affect the ability of shareholders who are not management of the Company to trade in shares of the Company. There is no certainty that the MCTO will be granted. If the MCTO is not issued by the OSC, the applicable Canadian securities regulatory authorities could issue a general cease trade order against the Company for failure to file the Annual Filings within the prescribed time period.
