Last Mile Holdings Announces Postponement of Filing Annual Financial Statements and MD&A Due to COVID-19 Related Delays

CHARLESTON, SC and VANCOUVER , April 28, 2020 /CNW/ - Last Mile Holdings Ltd. (formerly OjO Electric Corp.) (the "Company" or "MILE") (TSXV: MILE; OTC: AZNVF) announces the postponement of filing its annual financial statements and management's discussion and analysis for the year ended December 31, 2019 due to logistics and delays caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Company is relying on exemptive relief recently granted by Canadian securities regulatory authorities that allows it to delay the filing of its annual documents required by sections 4.2 and 5.12(2) of National Instrument 51-102 by April 29 , 2020.  In response to the coronavirus disease pandemic, securities regulatory authorities in Canada have granted a blanket exemption allowing issuers an additional 45 days to complete their regulatory filings.

MILE anticipates that its 2019 annual documents will be available for filing at its earliest opportunity, which is expected to occur on or before June 16 , 2020.  Until such time as the 2019 annual documents are filed, the Company's management and insiders are subject to a trading blackout that reflects the principals contained in section 9 of National Policy 11-207 – Failure-to-File Cease Trade Orders and Revocations in Multiple Jurisdictions.   

Other than as previously disclosed by the Company in news releases, there have been no material business developments since the date of the last interim financial statements filed on November 29, 2019 , copies of which are available on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.  The Company will be providing an update news release on the status of filing its December 31, 2019 audited financial statements and its March 31, 2020 first quarter unaudited financial statements by May 29, 2020 .
