VANCOUVER, March 19, 2018 /PRNewswire/ - UrtheCast Corp. (TSX: UR) ("UrtheCast" or the "Company") announced today that further to the update provided on March 9, 2018, the Company will release its 2017 fourth quarter and full-year financial results after markets close on April 2, 2018 and has rescheduled its earnings conference call to 4:30 p.m. ET (1:30 p.m. PT) that same day.

UrtheCast Corp. (CNW Group/UrtheCast Corp.)

The live conference call on April 2, 2018 will be available by calling toll-free at 1-800-806-5484, or by toll call at 1-416-340-2217. The participant pass code is 8289690#. An archived version of the conference call will be made available on the Company's investor website (investors.urthecast.com) following the live conference call.

The Company believes rescheduling the call is prudent to provide the Company with additional time to execute on its stated priorities, including in particular:


Identifying, securing and closing the subordinated capital or equity financing portion of the financing package for the UrtheDaily™ Constellation; 


Implementation of selected performance improvement and cost reduction options in support of achieving the Company's stated priorities; and


Completion of final documentation with the selected institutional investor.


The exclusivity agreement with the selected institutional investor has been extended to March 31, 2018, as both parties work diligently to conclude this transaction. While there are no other material updates to report, the Company continues to work towards finalizing the definitive documentation and conditions for the debt financing facility and identifying, securing and closing the subordinated capital or equity financing; however, there can be no assurance that the debt financing, the subordinated capital financing or any equity offering will be completed on the terms currently being negotiated or at all.
