CALGARY, Alta., July 12. 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Prospera Energy Inc. (“will prosper“or the”society“) (PEI: TSX-V; OF6B: FRA) is pleased to report its financial and operating results for the fourth quarter and year-end 2021.

Message to shareholders
2021 has been a transformational year for Prospera as the company has been restructured to be compliant and profitable for all stakeholders. The restructuring of Prospera began in the second quarter of 2021 with an initial focus on accounts payable arrears, regulatory and environmental non-compliances, security of infrastructure operations and production optimization. It is important to note that P.E.I. increased its focus on ensuring that its accounting practices comply with IFRS and is committed to improving the legacy culture associated with Prospera’s accounting policies.
Prospera’s accounting engagement began with the hire of new auditor Crowe MacKay LLP (“Crowe”), announced on December 3, 2021. Crowe has completed a thorough audit of the current and prior periods. In addition, we performed more sample testing, which resulted in many prior period adjustments. Also, identify important internal controls to implement. Overall, the audit took longer than expected, but the restructured PEI has established much higher confidence in its financial accounting and compliance practices
The 2021 audited financial statements reflected the significant reorganization and business efforts made that resulted in the current financial position and liquidity. Prince Edward Island is positioned for accelerated growth in 2022 and beyond (on a strong pillar of fundamental business support).
