Northland Provides its Second Default Status Update

Frankfurt: NPK, First North/Nasdaq: NAURo – together with its subsidiaries, “Northland” or “the Company”) provides its second bi-weekly Default Status Report under National Policy 12-203 – Cease Trade Orders for Continuous Defaults (“NP 12-203”).

On March 28, 2013, the Company announced that the filing of its audited financial statements and associated management discussion and analysis (collectively, the “Annual Filings”) for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2012, would not be completed by the filing deadline set by Canadian securities laws.

As a result of this delay in filing the Annual Filings and the application by the Company for a management cease trade order (a “MCTO”), the Ontario Securities Commission issued a MCTO, which imposes certain restrictions on the issuance and acquisition of securities of insiders and/or employees of the Company until the Company files the Annual Filings and related CEO and CFO certificates. The MCTO will not affect the ability of persons who are not insiders or employees of Northland to trade their securities.

Pursuant to the provisions of the alternative information guidelines specified by NP 12-203, the Company reports that, since the issuance of its default announcement on March 28, 2013, except as stated in this Default Status Report, there have not been any material changes to the information contained therein; nor any failure by the Company to fulfill its intentions as stated therein with respect to satisfying the provisions of the alternative information guidelines; and there are no additional defaults or anticipated defaults subsequent to the disclosure therein, other than the delay in filing the Annual Filings and related CEO and CFO certificates. Further, there is no additional material information respecting the Company and its affairs that has not been generally disclosed.

The Company expects to file the required Annual Filings and related CEO and CFO certificates on or before Tuesday, April 30, 2013. If this does not occur, the Company intends to file the third Default Status Report on or about May 9, 2013.
