VANCOUVER, BC, Oct. 20, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Sunniva Inc. ("Sunniva", the "Company") (CSE:SNN) (OTC Pink Sheets:SNNVF), announces it has obtained an amended and restated initial order (the "Amended and Restated Initial Order") under the Companies Creditors Arrangement Act (Canada) (the "CCAA") and an order implementing a claim process (the "Claims Process") to identify and determine all claims against Sunniva and its wholly owned subsidiaries, Sunniva Medical Inc., 1167025 B.C. Ltd. and 11111035 Canada Inc. (collectively with Sunniva, the "Sunniva Group").  As previously reported, Alvarez & Marsal Canada Inc. has been appointed as monitor in the CCAA proceedings. 

The Amended and Restated Initial Order authorizes an extension to the initial stay period to and including November 27, 2020 (the "First Stay Extension"). The First Stay Extension is intended to allow the Sunniva Group to continue to operate as it implements the Claim Process, while pursuing restructuring options.

The Company will continue to consider strategic alternatives in order to maximize value for its stakeholders. CP Logistics, LLC, a wholly-owned US based subsidiary of the Company, has engaged Deer Pond Capital, Ltd. ("Deer Pond") as financial advisor to assist in this process.  The Court has approved the Company to pay certain consulting fees to Deer Pond on behalf of CP Logistics, LLC. 

In accordance with the policies of the Canadian Securities Exchange (the "CSE"), in connection with the CCAA proceedings, the CSE will be reviewing the continued listing of the common shares of the Company.  The common shares of the Company have been subject to a cease trade order since June 22, 2020 for failure to file certain financial documents.  Trading of the shares will continue to be suspended until the CCAA process has been completed and the cease trade order has been revoked.
