Upcoming Changes in Issuer’s GAAP / Foreign Private Issuer Status

Under the US Securities Exchange Act of 1934, a foreign private issuer (“FPI”) is an entity incorporated or organized under the laws of a jurisdiction outside of the US, unless:

  • more than 50% of its outstanding voting securities are directly or indirectly owned of record by US residents; and
  • any of the following applies: (i) the majority of its executive officers or directors are US citizens or residents; (ii) more than 50% of its assets are located in the United States; or (iii) its business is administered principally in the United States.

A company’s ongoing FPI status is tested annually at the end of the most recently completed second fiscal quarter.  If an issuer fails to qualify as a FPI at the end of its second fiscal quarter, it remains eligible to use the forms and rules applicable to FPIs until the end of that financial year.

As of June 30, 2018, Tanager has determined that it no longer qualifies as a FPI.  Therefore, Tanager must transition to U.S. domestic company reporting status and become subject to SEC reporting requirements applicable to a U.S. domestic company, beginning in 2019.  These reporting requirements will require that the Company’s financial statements and selected financial data be recast into US GAAP and US dollar reporting currency for all periods presented, which will include the 2018 annual filings.  The extent of the impact of adoption of these standards has not yet been determined.  In addition, Tanager will be required to file annual, quarterly and current report filing with the SEC, comply with US insider filing requirements under the Exchange Act, and follow Regulation FD for “fair disclosure” of materially non-public information through public disclosure that is broadly available to all members of the public at the same time. 

Neither the TSX Venture Exchange nor its Regulation Services Provider (as the term is defined in the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange) accepts responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this release.

Tanager Energy Inc. is an oil and natural gas and mineral exploration company headquartered in Calgary, Alberta, with executive offices in Houston, Texas. The Corporation’s common shares are listed on the TSX Venture Exchange under the trading symbol “TAN” and on the OTCQB as “TANEF”.
