Magnetic North Acquisition Corp. (TSXV: MNC; MNC.PR.A) (“Magnetic North” or the “Company”) announces that it has decided to restate its financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2020 (the “2020 Restatement”). The decision to restate followed a review conducted by the Company’s new auditor and management’s consideration of the application of IFRS 10 for the Company’s investment companies, wherein it was determined that the consolidation of investment in CXTL Recycling (Canada) Corp. included in the financial statements as well as the application of other accounting policies were not appropriate given that Magnetic North is an investment entity. The material changes to be included in the 2020 Restatement will affect the Company’s balance sheet and income statement. The decision to restate followed an audit review and the impact will be confirmed during the finalization of the Company’s 2021 audited financial statements.

The Company is also providing an update on the status of the management cease trade order granted on May 4, 2022 (the “MCTO”) by its principal regulator, the Alberta Securities Commission, under National Policy 12-203 - Management Cease Trade Orders (“NP 12-203”), following the Company’s announcement on April 26, 2022 (the “Default Announcement”) that it was unable to file its audited annual financial statements, ‎management’s discussion and analysis and related certifications for the year ended December ‎‎31, 2021 (the “Documents”) ‎on or before May 2, 2022, as required under applicable securities laws. The Company expects to file the Documents by June 24, 2022, which will be filed in conjunction with the release of the 2020 Restatement. The Company’s first quarter results will be filed following the filing of the Documents.

There are no material changes to the information contained in the Default Announcement, other than the 2020 Restatement. In addition: (i) the Company is satisfying and confirms that it intends to continue to satisfy the provisions of the alternative information guidelines under NP 12-203 and issue bi-weekly default status reports for so long as the delay in filing the Documents is continuing, each of which will be issued in the form of a press release; (ii) the Company does not have any information at this time regarding any anticipated specified default subsequent to the default in filing the Documents; (iii) the Company is not subject to any insolvency proceedings; and (iv) there is no material information concerning the affairs of the Company that has not been generally disclosed.
