Groupe Conseil Omnitech Inc. ("GCO") (TSX VENTURE: GCO) files its Default Status Report in compliance with CSA Staff Notice 57-301.
GCO's directors and officers are presently the object of a Management CTO prohibiting them to trade GCO securities. A request to this effect has been filed to the regulatory authorities when it became apparent that GCO would not be able to file its year end audited and first quarter ended November 30, 2006 unaudited financial statements their related management report within the prescribed delays.
A press release dated January 4th, 2007 described the reasons of the delay, namely the procedures related to the filing of the notice of intent to make a proposal to creditors in accordance with the provisions of the Bankruptcy and Insolvency Act. On January 31st, GCO and its wholly-owned subsidiaries, Toptech Groupe Conseil Inc., Groupe de Gestion GCO Inc., Groupe Isac Inc. and Groupe Cadec Inc. filed proposals to their creditors at the court's registry. At the creditors meeting held on February 23rd, the creditors accepted the proposal. GCO's shareholders approved the proposals at their special meeting of March 12. On March 21, the courts homologated the proposals. The inspectors nominated at the creditors assembly met on April 25 to approve the dividends to be disbursed to the creditors.
The proposals to the creditors offered the payment of 100% of the value of creditors' claims in common shares of GCO at a price per share of $0.05. As a result with the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange and the competent regulatory authorities, a total of 195,247,999 common shares of the GCO were issued as of April 25, 2007 and sent to the creditors by the trustee in the last weeks. The total outstanding common shares of GCO is now 253,027,374.
GCO continues its audit process which encountered delays due to the complexity of the file. As a result, GCO will not be able to file its audited financial statements at the end of June, as indicated in the previous default status report, but will do so in mid-July instead.
