IONIC Brands Announces Making Revocation Application to Remove Its FFCTO

TACOMA, WA / ACCESSWIRE / November 12, 2020 / IONIC Brands Corp. (CSE:IONC)(FRA:IB3)(OTC PINK: IONKF) ("IONIC BRANDS" or the "Company") announces that on October 19, 2020 it applied to the Ontario Securities Commission (the "OSC") for a full revocation of the failure-to-file cease trade order (the "FFCTO") against the Company issued on June 22, 2020 by the OSC.

The FFCTO was due to the Company's failure to file by the prescribed filing deadlines its annual financial statements for the year ending December 31, 2019 (the "Annual Financial Statements"), and the accompanying management's discussion and analysis and certifications. As a result, the Canadian Securities Exchange (the "CSE") also suspended trading of the Company's common shares. The Company's auditor, DMCL, has completed the audit of the Annual Financial Statements, and the Company has filed the Annual Financial Statements, the financial statements for the three month period ended March 31, 2020, the financial statements for the six month period ended June 30, 2020 and the accompanying management's discussion and analysis and certifications for all three periods, all of which are available on the Company's profile on SEDAR. As a result, the Company applied to the OSC on October 19, 2020, to have the FFCTO fully revoked. The FFCTO remains in effect until revoked by the OSC. There can be no assurances the FFCTO will be revoked. It is customary to announce such applications after the grant of the removal order, however, due to the level of shareholder inquiry on the status of the Company's FFCTO the Company is making this press release. The Company is working diligently with its legal counsel and accountants to have the FFCTO fully revoked, and appreciates and thanks its shareholders and interested parties for their patience until the process is completed, after which the Company will make an announcement of the status of the FFCTO, and the resumption of trading of the Company's securities.
