TORONTO, ON /ACCESSWIRE/January 28, 2022/ Sparta Group (TSXV:SAY) (the “Company”, the “Company”, “Sparta Group”, “Sparta Capital”, “SAY.V” or “Sparta”) announces that further to its press release dated January 27, 2022 (“Default Announcement”), he received the order from the Alberta Securities Commission after filing an application for a management cease trade (“MCTO”) under National Policy 12- 203.

In the default announcement, Sparta said it had filed an application for an MCTO order with the ASC because the company was unable to file its annual financial statements for the year ended September 30, 2021, including the related MD&A and CEO and CFO analysis and certifications (the “Annual Filings”) in time to meet the January 28, 2022 filing deadline. The delay in filing is related to senior management involved in audit preparation work that contracts COVID over the holiday season. The Company expects to file the annual filings no later than March 1, 2022.

Although the MCTO restricts all trading in the Company’s securities by the Company’s CEO and CFO until the management cease trade is no longer in effect, trading Regular reviews by current and future investors (those outside the Company) continue as usual. The MCTO will be in effect until annual filings are filed.

Until the annual filings are filed, the Company intends to comply with the provisions of the alternative disclosure guidelines set out in National Policy 12-203 – Management Cease Trade Orders.

The Company confirms that, except as disclosed in previous press releases, there have been no significant business developments since the filing of the Company’s last interim financial report.
