Triterras Provides Update on Filing of Form 15 to Voluntarily Deregister and Suspend SEC Reporting Obligations

SINGAPORE, July 12, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Triterras, Inc. (OTC Expert Market: TRIRF) (the “Company” or “Triterras”), a leading fintech company focused on trade and trade finance, is providing this update on recent Company events and filings:

On June 27, 2023, Triterras voluntarily filed a Form 15 with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (the “SEC”) to deregister and suspend Triterras’ reporting obligations under Section 13(a) and Section 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “Exchange Act”).

The Company’s Board of Directors formed a Special Committee, comprised of independent directors (“Special Committee”), to review and consider a number of factors, including the possible effects on the liquidity of trading in the Company’s securities, the low probability of re-listing of the Company’s securities on a national securities exchange (the Company’s securities having been delisted on the NASDAQ exchange effective on, and since, February 3, 2022), the consequential effects on the Company’s ability to raise capital in the public market and the expected reduction in Company operating expenses as a result of eliminating public reporting.

The Board made the decision to deregister under the provisions of the Exchange Act following the Special Committee’s review and analysis of factors, including the Company’s ongoing delisted status, legal, administrative, and additional insurance and accounting costs associated with being a public reporting company. The Board determined that deregistering and thereby suspending the Company’s reporting obligations will allow the Company to focus more resources on its continued pursuit to streamline operations and execute on its operating plans.

The Company may provide to the public, where appropriate, press releases regarding Company developments. However, the Company will be unable to respond to individual shareholder’s enquiries via the telephone, mail, or e-mail.

Concurrent with the joint filing of Schedule 13D amendment by Board members Messrs. Koneru and Maurer on June 12, 2023, the Special Committee has also been tasked with evaluating a potential strategic alternative as disclosed therein.
