LGC Capital Ltd. Announces Change in Financial Year-End

MONTRÉAL, July 16, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LGC Capital Ltd. (TSX-V: LG / OTCQB: LGGCF) wishes to announce that it is changing its financial year-end to December 31 from its current year-end of September 30.  As a result, LGC will file an additional interim report as at September 30, 2019 and will report audited financial results for a 15-month transition year from October 1, 2018 to December 31, 2019 (with a comparative of the 12 months ended September 30, 2018). Afterwards, LGC will revert to a customary reporting calendar based on a December 31 year-end, with fiscal quarters ending on the last day of March, June, September and December each year.

LGC believes this change of financial year-end will allow it to complete the audit requirements of its investee companies with greater efficiency and will be useful to consolidate other companies in the future.
