Indico Reviews SEC Order of Suspension and Resumption of Trading on TSXV
|VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Dec. 21, 2012) - Indico Resources Ltd. ("Indico" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:IDI)(OTCQX:IDIFF) is providing this update regarding trading in the Company's securities. The Company was named in an Order of Suspension of Trading (the "Order") dated December 20, 2012 from the US Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC"). Pursuant to the Order, trading in the Company's securities on the OTCQX is suspended from December 20, 2012, through 11:59 p.m. EST on January 4, 2013.|
According to the Order, the SEC states that, "It appears to the SEC that there is a lack of current and accurate information concerning the securities of Indico Technologies, Inc. (n/k/a Indico Resources Ltd.) because it has not filed any periodic reports since the period ended November 30, 1999." For further information please refer to the SEC website at www.sec.gov.
Management has determined that in February 1999 the prior management of the Company under its former name, Indico Technologies, Inc., filed a Form 20-F Registration Statement with the SEC but when management subsequently decided not to continue with the registration with the SEC they did not file the appropriate forms to withdraw the registration.
The Company's US legal counsel has discussed this matter with the SEC and the Company will be immediately filing the necessary documentation to proceed with the withdrawal of the registration. The Company's shares will remain suspended from trading until January 4, 2013, at which time the Company will resume trading on the OTCQX and will rely on the Rule 12g3-2(b) exemption from registration with the SEC in the U.S.
As a result of the Order the Company's shares were halted on the TSX-V pending review of the matter by the TSX-V. The Company confirms that it is up to date with its filings on SEDAR and not on the Default Filers list with the British Columbia Securities Commission. Therefore, since the Company is up to date with its continuous disclosure filings on SEDAR, trading in the Company's shares on the TSX-V is expected to resume upon dissemination of this clarifying press release.
