CIBT Provides Update on Filing Status
December 8th, 2008, CIBT Education Group Inc. (NYSE Alternext US: MBA; TSX.V: MBA) wishes to inform its shareholders that the company will be filing its fiscal 2008 financial statements and associated management’s discussion and analysis shortly.
During the past fiscal year, the company completed a number of acquisitions and financing activities. The company also changed its fiscal year end from June 30th to August 31st in order to coincide with the fiscal year end of all of its newly acquired subsidiaries including Sprott-Shaw Community College and Tourism Training Institute. These factors contributed to a significant increase in accounting, filing and disclosure requirements. In addition to these changes, the company ceased to be a venture issuer in April 2008 upon the listing of its shares for trading on the American Stock Exchange (now NYSE Alternext), which accelerated the filing deadline of its annual financial report from 120 days to 90 days.
Management is working diligently with the company’s auditors and accountants to ensure that the annual financial statements and management’s discussion and analysis are filed in good standing as soon as possible.
