True Leaf Brands Inc (CSE:MJ) (OTCPINK:TRLFF) announced Wednesday that it is reshuffling its management team, with former CEO Darcy Bomford stepping into the role once again on an interim basis.
The Vancouver-based firm said it missed the September 14 filing deadline for its annual financial statements due to the coronavirus pandemic but was granted a management cease trade order (MCTO) with the British Columbia Securities Commission (BCSC) on Wednesday as well.
The company expects to complete the filing as soon as they are available and no later than October 14. Until that point, True Leaf will comply with BCSC guidelines.
