Chris Bolton, Sprout AI’s CEO, stated,

“We confirm that the Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada is reviewing the information provided concerning possible explanations for this unexpected sell-off including, but not limited to, the possible mistaken identity Nasdaq: SPRT.

We have confirmed with IIROC that our major shareholder, TheraCann International, did not loan any of the company shares to a third party. The company also acknowledged that the previously filed Form 45 is no longer required.

On behalf of our shareholders, we wish to thank IRROC for allowing us to stay focused on our business, while they continue to monitor this situation closely.”
