BluMetric’s Board of Directors and Management continue to work expediently to meet the Company’s second quarter disclosure obligations. In the meantime, Management and other insiders remain subject to a trading black-out policy as outlined in section 9 of the National Policy 11-207 Failure to File Cease Trade Orders and Revocations in Multiple Jurisdictions.
