CanAsia Announces Reinstatement of Trading

CALGARY, Alberta, Oct. 05, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CanAsia Financial Inc. ("CanAsia" or the "Company") (NEX:CNA) is pleased to provide an update pertaining to the reinstatement of trading of the Company's shares.

On September 27, 2017, the Alberta Securities Commission, British Columbia Securities Commission and Ontario Securities Commission (collectively, the "Commissions") issued full revocation of their respective cease trade orders which were issued on May 5, 2016, May 12, 2016 and May 10, 2016, respectively. The cease trade orders were issued as a result of the Company's failure to meet a deadline to file annual audited financial statements, annual management's discussion and analysis, and certification of annual filings for the year ended December 31, 2015 (the "Filings"). The Filings were filed on SEDAR at www.sedar.com on June 23, 2017 as amended on July 28, 2017.  In connection with the Company's application to the Commissions to revoke the cease trade orders, the Company provided an undertaking to hold an annual meeting of shareholders within three months of the date the cease trade order was revoked.

As a result of the aforementioned cease trade order revocations, the Company has been advised by the NEX, a separate board of the TSX Venture Exchange that its common shares, which have been suspended from trading since May 5, 2016, are scheduled for reinstatement of trading at the opening of the market on Friday, October 6, 2017.
