Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - July 12, 2022) - GLOBAL HEMP GROUP INC. (CSE: GHG) (OTCQB: GBHPF) (FSE: GHG) ("GHG" or the "Company") and Revitalize Earth ("Earth"), a private arm's length non-profit company incorporated pursuant to the laws of California, announce that they have entered into a binding letter of intent (the "LOI"), dated July 8, 2022, to consummate a going-public transaction for Earth involving the reverse take-over of GHG (the "Transaction").
The Transaction will involve a share exchange, arrangement or other similar form of transaction which will result in Earth combining its corporate existence with that of GHG (the "Resulting Issuer"). The Resulting Issuer will be listed on the Canadian Securities Exchange (the "CSE") under the name "Revitalize Earth Holdings Inc." or such other name as the board of directors may determine.
SUMMARY OF THE TRANSACTION
Under the terms of the LOI, GHG will effect the consolidation of the GHG shares (the "GHG Shares") on the basis of ten (10) pre-consolidated GHG Shares for one (1) post-consolidated GHG Share (the "GHG Consolidation"). GHG will issue 360,000,000 new shares at the price of $0.30 per share to the shareholders of Earth to acquire the outstanding Earth shares representing a total equity value of US$85,000,000 on a fully diluted basis.
It is contemplated that in conjunction with the listing on the CSE, the Resulting Issuer may elect to complete either a brokered or non-brokered private placement financing of up to US$15,000,000 by way of subscription receipts (the "Concurrent Financing"). Both parties have agreed that the terms and conditions of an eventual engagement letter with brokers in respect of the Concurrent Financing are to be determined at a later stage and will be mutually agreed upon by Earth and GHG.
Upon completion of the business combination and closing of the Concurrent Financing, Earth has agreed to pay to the designated broker (in case of a brokered financing) a fee, which shall be negotiated upon finalization of an engagement letter with the designated broker.
Subject to the approval of the CSE, Mid Atlantic Capital Inc. shall be entitled to an aggregate finder's fee payable by the Resulting Issuer representing three percent (3%) of the value of the Transaction between GHG and Earth (the "Finder's Fee"). The Finder's Fee may be payable either in cash, shares of the Resulting Issuer or a combination of both.

The Transaction constitutes a "Fundamental Change" for GHG under the policies of the CSE. Pending completion of filings with the CSE in connection with the Transaction, trading in the common shares of GHG has been halted at the request of GHG. It is anticipated that trading will remain halted until the information circular has been posted on SEDAR in contemplation of the meeting of shareholders of GHG.
Completion of the Transaction remains subject to a number of conditions, including, but not limited to: (i) negotiation of definitive documentation; (ii) receipt of any required regulatory approvals; (iii) the approval of the shareholders of GHG and Earth; (iv) completion of the GHG Consolidation; and (v) completion of the Concurrent Offering for gross proceeds of up to $15,000,000, if elected to do so by the Resulting Issuer. The Transaction cannot be completed until these conditions are satisfied. There can be no assurance that the Transaction will be completed as proposed or at all.
