Namaste Technologies Inc (CVE:N) (OTCMKTS:NXTTF) announced Monday it has appointed Baker Tilly WM LLP as its auditor, replacing PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP.

As part of this change, the Toronto cannabis company said it is not in a position to file its audited annual financial statements for the fiscal year ending November 30 and the related analysis by the filing deadline of April 1, 2019, as it must permit sufficient time for Baker Tilly to complete its year-end audit.

On the back of its proposed filing delay, Namaste will be making an application to regulators requesting that a management cease trade order (MCTO) be granted. If the company receives the MCTO, it is expected that investors will continue to be able to trade in its shares.

But it is also expected that for the duration of the MCTO, Namaste’s senior management and board will not be able to trade in its shares. There is also no guarantee that a MCTO will be granted.

Namaste and its management are committed to working with Baker Tilley to complete the year-end audit as soon as possible.
