TORONTO, ON –(Marketwired - March 30, 2016) - MBAC Fertilizer Corp. (“MBAC” or the “Company”) (TSX: MBC) today announced that it has determined that it will not be in a position to file its annual information form, audited annual financial statements, management’s discussion and analysis and related certifications for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2015 by March 30, 2016 (collectively, the “Annual Filings”), the required filing due date, as a result of a delay in engaging the Company’s auditor due to the Company’s ongoing financial constraints.

MBAC is currently working closely with its auditor, and expects to be able to have the audit of the annual financial statements completed, and the Annual Filings filed, on or about April 11, 2016.
