OTTAWA, June 08, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — BetterU Education Corp. (TSX-V:BTRU) (FRANKFURT:5OGA), (the “Company” or “betterU”) announces that the Corporation was cease traded by the BC Securities Commission (the “Commission”) on June 5, 2017 as a result of not filing periodic financial statements for the period ended March 31, 2017 on time, in part because the Corporation had decided to change its year end from December 31 to March 31. After discussions with the Commission, it was determined that it was an administrative error on the part of the Corporation and the Notice of Change of Year End was refiled as of June 6, 2017 and subsequently the BC Securities Commission lifted the cease trading order.
After a TSX Venture Exchange reinstatement review was completed, the Company was advised that effective at the market opening, Friday, June 9, 2017, the shares of the Company will be reinstated to trade.
The rational for the change in the financial year end from December 31st to March 31st was made by the Company, in order to align the fiscal year periods of the parent and its subsidiaries, in particular its Indian subsidiary which has a March 31 legislated year-end date.
