VANCOUVER, BC, Oct. 20, 2021 /CNW/ - Sunniva Inc. ("Sunniva", the "Company") (CSE:SNN) (OTC Pink Sheets:SNNVF) announces an update regarding its financial condition and plan to host an update call for shareholders on Monday, October 25, 2021.

As of the week ending October 15th, 2021, the Company and its subsidiaries have cash of approximately US$87,000. This cash position is a result of ongoing operational costs including CPL's California glasshouse arbitration, as well as a US$150,000 retainer which Sunniva has paid to its new auditor, GreenGrowth CPAs.  Sunniva and GreenGrowth will work towards completion of the 2019 and 2020 audits as soon as possible.  The completion of audited financial statements is one of the conditions to the Company returning to good standing and to the lifting of the cease trade order applicable to securities of the Company issued on June 22, 2020, for failure to file certain financial documents (the "Cease Trade Order"). Trading of the Company's shares will continue to be suspended until the Cease Trade Order has been fully revoked.  If the audits are completed successfully and all filings required to be made by the Company pursuant to applicable securities laws are made, the Company intends to apply to the relevant securities commissions for a revocation of the Cease Trading Order.

Sunniva estimates that it and its subsidiaries will require an additional US$500,000 to fund expenses up until December 31, 2021, including completion of the audits.  The Company anticipates incurring these expenses in connection with the audit work, the continuing arbitration in California, employee related expenses and miscellaneous other expenses.

Sunniva intends to apply to the relevant securities commissions for a partial revocation of the Cease Trade Order to permit a private placement financing to raise sufficient funds to cover these expenses in compliance with applicable securities laws. There is no certainty that the securities commissions will grant such an order.

Sunniva plans to host an update call for shareholders on Monday, October 25, 2021 at 1:00 p.m. (PST). Dial-in numbers for the update call are below:
