Payfare Announces Receipt of Vendor’s SOC 1 Report

Facilitates Completion of the Company’s Annual Filings

Toronto, Ontario, June 30, 2024 – Payfare Inc. (“Payfare” or the “Company”) (TSX: PAY, OTCQX: PYFRF) today announces the receipt of the System and Organization Controls (“SOC 1”) auditor’s report from its material vendor which is required in order for the Company’s independent auditors to complete their required audit procedures to issue their opinion on the Company’s annual financial statements.  

The SOC 1 report has since been sent to the Company’s auditors to complete their remaining audit procedures so that they may issue their audit opinion in respect of the Company’s audited annual financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2023. In addition, the Company will complete its management’s discussion and analysis, annual information form and related certifications, all for the year ended December 31, 2023 (collectively, the “Annual Filings”).

With the SOC 1 report now in hand, the Company expects that it will be on track to complete its Annual Filings this week, and the Company will issue a news release at such time as they are completed and filed. Based on the Company’s review of the vendor’s unqualified (clean) SOC 1 report, there should not be any impact to the unaudited and summarized fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2023 financial results that were previously reported and disclosed on April 25, 2024.
