Calgary, Alberta and Denver, Colorado--(Newsfile Corp. - August 12, 2022) - INDVR Brands, Inc. (CSE: IDVR) (the "Company" or "INDVR Brands" or "INDVR"), a premier cannabis brand house and edibles producer announces that the British Columbia Securities Commission (BCSC) has issued a cease trade order (CTO) to INDVR Brands Inc. as a result of INDVR's inability to file an interim financial report for the period ended April 30, 2022 and annual audited financial statements for the year ended January 31, 2022, the management's discussion and analysis for the periods ended April 30, 2022, and January 31, 2022, and the certification of annual and interim filings for the periods ended April 30, 2022, and January 31, 2022.

The CTO prohibits the trading by any person of any securities of INDVR in each jurisdiction in Canada in which the Company is a reporting issuer, including trades in the Company's common shares made through the Canadian Securities Exchange, for as long as the CTO remains in effect. The CTO provides an exception for beneficial security holders of the Company who are not currently (and who were not as of Aug 10, 2022) insiders or control persons of the Company and who sell securities of the Company acquired before August 10, 2022 if both of the following criteria are met: (i) the sale is made through a "foreign organized regulated market", as defined in section 1.1 of the Universal Market Integrity Rules of the Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada and (ii) the sale is made through an investment dealer registered in a jurisdiction of Canada in accordance with applicable securities legislation.

The CTO will remain in place until such time as the Required Filings have been filed, following which the Company expects that the BCSC will revoke the CTO. The Company is continuing to make efforts to file the Required Filings as soon as possible, including actively seeking financing to advance, finalize and file the Required Filings and continue operations. However, there can be no assurances that the Company will be able to secure such financing, remedy its filing default and have the CTO lifted in a timely manner or at all.

The Company will endeavour to issue regular news releases to keep the investing public apprised of the situation and the progress of its audit and filing efforts.
