Boyuan Announces Expected Delay in Filing Q1 Financial Statements22:11 EST Thursday, November 08, 2012TORONTO, Nov. 8, 2012 /CNW/ - Boyuan Construction Group, Inc., (TSX: BOY, BOY.DB, BOY.DB.A), a fast-growing construction company in China of commercial, residential and municipal infrastructure projects, announced today that the filing of its interim financial statements, management's discussion and analysis, the related officer certifications for the first quarter ended September 30, 2012 (collectively, the "Q1 Filings") will be delayed beyond the filing deadline of November 15, 2012.As previously disclosed on September 25, 2012, the Company is also delayed in the filing of its annual financial statements, management's discussion and analysis, the related officer certifications and the annual information form for the financial year ended June 30, 2012 (collectively, the "Annual Filings").  The Company has applied for and has obtained a management and insider cease trade order (the "AnnualMCTO") in connection with the delay for the Annual Filings, which is expected to be in effect until December 2, 2012.The delay in the Q1 filings is a result of the delay in the Annual Filings.  The delay in the Annual Filings was caused by the Company's auditor's inability to provide an audit opinion by the filing deadline.  The Company is working with the auditors to resolve any outstanding issues with respect to the Annual Filings as soon as possible.As a result of this delay, the Company intends to make an application to the Ontario Securities Commission and other relevant securities regulatory authorities under applicable securities legislation for a management and insider cease trade order (the "Q1 MCTO") in connection with the anticipated filing delay for the Q1 Filings.   If the Q1 MCTO is granted, it will prohibit the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer, and likely the directors and other insiders of the Company, from trading in securities of the Company for so long as the Q1 Filings have not been completed.   The issuance of the Q1 MCTO would generally not affect the ability of persons who are not, or who have not been, directors, officers or other insiders of the Company to trade in the Company's securities.About Boyuan Construction Group, Inc.Based in Jiaxing City, China, Boyuan Construction Group, Inc. is in the business of commercial building and residential construction, municipal infrastructure and engineering projects.  In its last three fiscal years ending June 30, 2011, Boyuan completed more than 80 projects for a number of private and public sector clients.  Boyuan's current project backlog includes residential, commercial, industrial and mixed-use developments.  From its operating bases in Zhejiang Province and in Hainan Province, Boyuan focuses on construction projects in China's fast-growing regions of the Yangtze River Delta, Hainan Province and Shandong Province.
