NorZinc Announces Intention to Terminate SEC Reporting Obligations
February 25, 2020 ─ Vancouver, British Columbia ─ NorZinc Ltd. (TSX: NZC; OTCQB: NORZF) (the “Company” or “NorZinc”) announces it will voluntarily file a Form 15F with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) to terminate the registration of its common shares under Section 12(g) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”), and its reporting obligations under Section 13(a) of the Exchange Act.
Management of the Company is of the view that the costs associated with continuing the registration and reporting under the Exchange Act outweigh the benefits received by the Company from maintaining its registration.
The termination will become effective 90 days after the date of filing of the Form 15F with the SEC, or within such shorter period as the SEC may determine. Upon filling of the Form 15F, the Company’s reporting obligations under the Exchange Act will be immediately suspended, including its obligations to file annual reports on Form 20-F and reports on Form 6-K.
The Company’s common shares are currently quoted on the OTCQB, operated by OTC Markets Group Inc. After filing of the Form 15F, the Company expects its common shares to continue to be quoted on the OTCQB under the ticker symbol “NORZF”.
The Company’s shares will continue to trade on the TSX, and the Company will continue to meet its Canadian continuous disclosure obligations through filings with the applicable Canadian securities regulators. All of the Company’s filing can be found at the SEDAR website at www.sedar.com.
