Sears Canada Announces Update on Q2-2017 Earnings Release

Sep 18, 2017

TORONTO, Sept. 18, 2017 /CNW/ - Sears Canada Inc. (the "Company") announced today that it will not be filing unaudited interim financial statements, Management's Discussion and Analysis, or related CEO and CFO certifications (the "Continuous Disclosure Filings") in respect of the 13-week period ended July 29, 2017, which, under applicable securities laws, are required to be filed by September 27, 2017 (the "Filing Deadline").

The Company remains subject to a stay of proceedings under the Companies' Creditors Arrangement Act ("CCAA"), initially granted by order of the Ontario Superior Court of Justice on June 22, 2017. Since the granting of that order, the Company's common shares have been delisted from the Toronto Stock Exchange (effective July 28, 2017) and the Nasdaq Stock Market (effective July 3, 2017).  Following the Filing Deadline, the Company expects that the Ontario Securities Commission ("OSC") will issue a cease trade order in respect of the Company's securities.  Any cease trade order issued by the OSC will also apply in the other jurisdictions of Canada.  In light of the Company's ongoing restructuring process, the Company does not intend to make the Continuous Disclosure Filings prior to or following the issuance of the anticipated cease trade order. 

FTI Consulting Canada Inc. is the court-appointed monitor under the CCAA court order.  Information about the CCAA Proceedings, including the monitor's reports, are available on the monitor's website at http://cfcanada.fticonsulting.com/searscanada.
