High Fusion Announces Application for Management Cease Trade Order

Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - November 15, 2022) - High Fusion Inc. (CSE: FUZN) (OTC Pink: SPLIF) ("High Fusion" or the "Company") announces today that it has made an application to the Ontario Securities Commission to approve a temporary management cease trade order ("MCTO") under National Policy 12-203 – Management Cease Trade Orders ("NP 12-203"), which, if granted, will prohibit trading in securities of the Company by its Chief Executive Officer and Chief Financial Officer so long as the 2022 Filings (as defined below) remain outstanding and the MCTO remains effective. In addition, the Company has imposed a blackout for all insiders. This blackout will remain in effect until such time as the 2022 Filings have been filed by the Company and the MCTO has been lifted. The issuance of an 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. The MCTO application has been made but there is no guarantee or assurance that the MCTO will be granted.

The Company has determined that it may not able to meet the November 28, 2022 filing deadline (the "Filing Deadline") for its annual financial statements, the management's discussion and analysis and the related CEO and CFO certification relating to the financial statements for the fiscal year ended July 31, 2022 (collectively, the "2022 Filings").

Although the Company remains confident in its ability to complete the 2022 Filings, it requires an extension and has therefore applied for an MCTO. In particular, the Company is coordinating specific tasks to be completed on a daily basis and will use its best efforts to complete the process within this timeline. The Company anticipates that, subject to current conditions remaining the same, it will require approximately four additional weeks to complete the process and will use its best efforts to complete the process within the timeline indicated.

The Company intends to satisfy the provisions of the alternative information guidelines set out in Sections 9 and 10 of NP 12-203 so long as the 2022 Filings are outstanding. The guidelines, among other things, require the Company to issue bi-weekly default status reports, in the form of news releases, for so long as the 2022 Filings have not been filed.

The Company confirms as of the date of this news release that there is no insolvency proceeding against it and there is no other material information concerning the affairs of the Company that has not been generally disclosed.
