Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - June 13, 2023) - Eddy Smart Home Solutions Ltd. (TSXV: EDY) ("Eddy" or the "Company"), is providing a default status report in accordance with the alternative information guidelines set out in National Policy 12-203 - Management Cease Trade Orders ("NP 12-203").

As previously announced on April 18, 2023 and as further updated on May 3, 2023, May 16, 2023 (the "May 16 News Release"), and May 30, 2023 (the "May 30 News Release") the Company applied for a management cease trade order ("MCTO") from the Ontario Securities Commission ("OSC") due to an expected delay in filing the Company's annual financial statements (the "Financial Statements"), management's discussion and analysis relating to the Financial Statements and related officer certifications for the financial year ended December 31, 2022 (collectively, the "Annual Filing Documents"). The MCTO was granted by the OSC on May 2, 2023 and the Company continues to work closely with its auditor and expects to file the Annual Filing Documents as soon as possible, and in any event no later than July 7, 2023.

As a result of the above-referenced delay, in the May 16 News Release, the Company announced the delay in the filing of its interim financial statements for the period ended March 31, 2023, the related management's discussion and analysis relating to the interim financial statements, and the related officer certifications of the Company (collectively, the "Q1 2023 Filings"). The Company believes it will be able to file the Q1 2023 Filings by August 15, 2023. Further information regarding the Q1 2023 Filings can be found in the May 16 News Release.

The MCTO prohibits the Company's Chief Executive Officer, Chief Financial Officer, and such other directors, officers and persons as determined by the applicable regulatory authorities, from trading, directly or indirectly, in the securities of the Company. The Company will also not be able to, directly or indirectly, issue securities to or acquire securities from an insider or employee of the Company until such time as the Annual Filing Documents and all continuous disclosure requirements have been filed by the Company, and the MCTO has been lifted. The MCTO does not affect the ability of any other securityholders of the Company to trade securities of the Company.

The Company confirms that since the May 30 News Release, other than as described in this news release regarding the revised expected date for filing the Annual Filing Documents and Q1 2023 Filings: (a) there are no changes to the information contained in its news releases dated April 18, 2023, May 3, 2023 and May 16, 2023 that would reasonably be expected to be material to an investor; (b) the Company is satisfying and confirms that it intends to continue to satisfy the provisions of the alternative information guidelines under NP 12-203 and issue bi-weekly default status reports for so long as the delay in filing the Annual Filing Documents is continuing, each of which will be issued in the form of a press release; (c) there has not been any other specified default by the Company under NP 12-203; (d) there is no other material information concerning the affairs of the Company that has not been generally disclosed.

The Company is working to complete the Annual Filing Documents and Q1 2023 Filings and will continue to issue bi-weekly default status reports as required.
