April 28, 2020. Giyani Metals Corp. (TSXV:EMM) (FRANKFURT:KT9) (WKN:A2DUU8) (“Giyani” or the “Company”) announces that due to logistics and delays caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, including the lockdown implemented in Botswana in connection with the pandemic, the Company is relying on the exemption provided in Ontario Instrument 51-502 – Temporary Exemption from Certain Corporate Finance Requirements (the “Ontario Instrument”) of the Ontario Securities Commission (and parallel exemptions available in other Canadian jurisdictions) to postpone the filing and delivery of the following continuous disclosure documents:

  • the Company’s Annual Audited Financial Statements for the year ended December 31, 2019, per sections 4.2 and 4.6(3) of National Instrument 51-102 – Continuous Disclosure Obligations (“NI 51-102”), and its Management’s Discussion & Analysis for the year ended December 31, 2019, per sections 5.1(2) and 5.6(1) of NI 51-102, which would otherwise be required to be filed by April 29, 2020 (the “Year End Documents”); and
  • the Company’s Interim Financial Statements for the quarter ended March 31, 2020, per sections 4.4 and 4.6(3) of NI 51-102, and its Management’s Discussion & Analysis for the quarter ended March 31, 2020, per sections 5.1(2) and 5.6(1) of NI 51-102, which would otherwise be required to be filed by May 30, 2020 (the “Q1 Documents”).

Under the Ontario Instrument, during the period from March 23, 2020 to June 1, 2020, a person or company required to make certain filings as described in the Ontario Instrument has an additional 45 days from the deadline otherwise applicable under Ontario securities laws to make the filing. Until the Company has filed the required financial statements and management’s discussion and analysis, members of the Company’s management and other insiders will remain subject to an Insider Trading Black Out period throughout this extension consistent with the principles of National Policy 11-207 – Failure-to-File Cease Trade Orders and Revocations in Multiple Jurisdictions.

Since the date of the last interim financial statements that were filed on November 15, 2019, the only material change to the Company is the acquisition from Malungani Resources (Pty) Ltd of all of the outstanding ordinary shares of Lexshell 837 (Pty) Ltd. as announced on December 9, 2019.

The Company expects to file the Year-End Documents no later than June 12, 2020 and the Q1 Documents no later than June 30, 2020.
