  • The decline in revenues is entirely attributed to the decrease in Euclides’ contracts which ended in 2023 with total revenue as at December 31, 2023 of $276,163 compared to total revenue as at December 31, 2022 of $1,433,055;

Management Commentary

2023 saw consistently strong financial results from Marketwall showing a trajectory for continued profitability and growth, strengthened with the renewal of the licensing agreement with Intesa Sanpaolo, commented Natalie Hirsch, Interim CEO of AnalytixInsight. Despite Marketwall’s continued success, there was limited success in the other business lines of CapitalCube and Euclides, resulting in the discontinuation of the Euclides business in early 2024. This year, starting with Q1, we are about rebuilding this company and positioning it with a go-forward strategy so we can raise capital.

In addition, as stated in the Company’s press release dated April 23, 2024 (the Default Announcement), there was uncertainty regarding the Company’s decision-making, and such uncertainty had rendered the Company and its board of directors (the Board) unable to make the determinations necessary to complete the preparation of its financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2023, including in relation to certain disputed expense items, and to take the other actions necessary to finalize, approve and file the Required Annual Filings by the filing deadline of April 29, 2024. In connection with such decision-making uncertainty, recently disclosed legal proceedings were filed in the Ontario Superior Court of Justice (Commercial List). The Court released an endorsement on May 1, 2024 setting forth various intended interim orders (the Interim Orders) following an expedited hearing held on April 26, 2024. In accordance with the Interim Orders, an inspector has now been selected by the Company to investigate the issues.

For more information about the Interim Orders, please refer to the Court’s reasons and the Company’s press release dated May 3, 2024, which are available on the Company’s website at www.analytixinsight.com and under the Company’s SEDAR+ profile at www.sedarplus.ca, respectively.

As disclosed by the Company in a press release dated May 3, 2024, the Company failed to file its audited financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2023 and the related Management’s Discussion and Analysis (MD&A) and the certifications (the Certifications) related to such filings required from the Company’s chief executive officer and chief financial officer (collectively, the Required Annual Filings) by the filing deadline of April 29, 2024 (the Annual Filings Default). In addition, the Company also failed to file it interim financial statements for the three-month period ended March 31, 2024, and the corresponding MD&A and Certificates (collectively, the Required Interim Filings) by the filing deadline of May 30, 2024 (the Interim Filings Default, and together with the Annual Filings Default, the Default). The Interim Filings Default resulted from the Company’s failure to complete the Required Annual Filings by May 30, 2024, which consequently made it impossible for the Company to confirm its 2024 opening balances.

In anticipation of the Annual Filings Default, the Company previously applied to the Ontario Securities Commission (the OSC), as the Company’s principal regulator, for a temporary management cease trade order (MCTO) under NP 12-203. The MCTO was issued by the OSC on May 1, 2024, and is expected to remain in effect until two business days after the Default is remedied. The MCTO prohibits trading in securities of the Company, whether direct or indirect, by certain specified parties including each of the Company’s directors and officers. The issuance of the MCTO does not generally affect the ability of persons who are not directors, officers or other insiders of AnalytixInsight to trade in securities of the Company.

The Company intends to continue to make every effort to complete the Required Interim Filings as soon as possible. In that regard, the Required Annual Filings were filed today and the Company was able to confirm its 2024 opening balances. Copies of the Required Annual Filings are available on the Company’s SEDAR+ profile at www.sedarplus.ca. Subject to the work of the Court-ordered inspector and any further determinations of the Court, the Company will continue to make every effort to be in a position to make the Required Interim Filings on or prior to June 28, 2024.

Other than as set out herein, the Company confirms that (a) there have been no changes to the information contained in the Default Announcement that would reasonably be expected to be material to an investor, (b) the Company believes that there has been no failure by the Company in fulfilling its stated intentions with respect to satisfying the provisions of the alternative information guidelines under NP 12-203, (c) there is no anticipated specified default (as such term is defined in NP 12-203) subsequent to the Default, and (d) there is no other material information concerning the affairs of the Company that has not been generally disclosed.

Should the Company fail to make the Required Interim Filings on or before June 28, 2024, the OSC may impose a cease trade order that all trading in securities of the Company cease for such period of time as the OSC may deem appropriate.

The Company intends to continue to comply with the alternative information guidelines set out in NP 12-203 until the Required Interim Filings are made, including by issuing bi-weekly default status reports in the form of further news releases.

The issuance of this news release has been approved by the Board, and more specifically Messrs. Veeravalli (independent), Kadar (independent), and Gardner (independent).
