VANCOUVER, British Columbia, April 11, 2022--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Legible Inc. (CSE: READ) (FSE: D0T) (OTC: LEBGF) ("Legible" or the "Company") is in the process of finalizing a strategic corporate restructuring and reallocation of duties following the layoffs and resignations of a number of its staff. As part of this process, effective April 8, Ms. Helina Patience, Legible’s former Chief Financial Officer (CFO) and Laura Brady, Head of Accessibility are no longer with the Company. Legible is in the process of interviewing candidates to join Legible as the Company’s new CFO. Laura has agreed to consult to Legible and assist management in ensuring that Legible is the first born-accessible platform for all users and reading needs in the twenty-first century.

"We wish Helina success in her future endeavors, and we look forward to continuing to work with Laura," said Kaleeg Hainsworth, President and CEO of Legible. "As a much more streamlined company, I am confident that we can capitalize on the many new opportunities that have emerged from our recent participation at the London Book Fair." Mr. Hainsworth presented a keynote address entitled How the next 1 billion people will read. In addition, Hainsworth conducted a lecture on the creation of living ebooks and accessibility. These presentations and other meetings with publishers and distributors have already yielded the request for many new partnerships and content acquisition opportunities with a wide range of well-known book publishers and distributors.

Hybrid will focus on heightening market and brand awareness for Legible and to broaden the Company's reach within the investment community.

Forward-Looking Information

Certain statements in this press release are forward-looking statements and are prospective in nature. Forward-looking ‎statements are not based on historical facts, but rather on current expectations and projections about future events, many ‎of which, by their nature, are inherently uncertain and outside of the Company’s control and are therefore subject to risks ‎and uncertainties which could cause actual results to differ materially from the future results expressed or implied by the ‎forward-looking statements. These statements generally can be identified by the use of forward-looking words such as "may", "should", "will", "could", "intend", "estimate", "plan", "anticipate", "expect", "believe" or "continue", or the negative ‎thereof or similar variations. These statements include forward looking statements regarding new partnerships and content acquisition opportunities for the Company. Those assumptions and factors are based on information currently available to the Company. Although management of the ‎Company has attempted to identify important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in forward-looking statements or forward-looking information, there may be other factors that cause results not to be as ‎anticipated, estimated or intended. Among the key factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those ‎projected in the forward-looking information and statements are the following: changes in general economic, business and political conditions, ‎including changes in the financial markets; changes in applicable laws; ‎and the diversion of management time. Should one or more of these risks, uncertainties or ‎other factors materialize, or should assumptions underlying the forward-looking information or statements prove incorrect, ‎actual results may vary materially from those described herein as intended, planned, anticipated, believed, estimated or ‎expected. There can be no assurance that such statements will prove to be accurate, as actual results and future events ‎could differ materially from those anticipated in such statements. Readers should not place undue reliance on forward-‎looking statements and forward-looking information. The forward-looking information contained in this release is made as of ‎the date hereof and the Company assumes no obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statements or forward-‎looking information that are incorporated by reference herein, whether as a result of new information, future events or ‎otherwise, except as required by applicable securities laws. The foregoing statements expressly qualify any forward-looking ‎information contained herein. All subsequent written and oral forward-looking information and statements attributable to the ‎Company or persons acting on its behalf is expressly qualified in its entirety by this notice.‎
