(“Company” or “META”) (CSE: MMAT) a developer of high-performance functional materials and nanocomposites, today announced restated third quarter 2020 results. Subsequent to the issuance of the previously reported financial statements for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2020 and 2019 (filed on SEDAR on November 30, 2020), management determined that the fair value of unsecured convertible debentures was overstated by $150,000 as at September 30, 2020.
