Early Warning Report in Connection with an Internal Distribution of Shares of Green Thumb Industries Inc.
Chicago, Illinois--(Newsfile Corp. - June 29, 2020) - On June 26, 2020, 9,344,908 Subordinate Voting Shares and 61,893 Super Voting Shares of Green Thumb Industries Inc. (CSE: GTII) (the "Issuer") were distributed to investors of RCP23, LLC and GTI II, LLC, private investment holding companies controlled by Benjamin Kovler, CEO and Chairman of Issuer, together with his joint actors which include RCP23, LLC and GTI II, LLC (collectively, the "Acquiror"). Neither Mr. Kovler nor, to Mr. Kovler's knowledge, any other member of the Issuer's management team, anticipates selling any shares of the Issuer as a result of this distribution.
Because the Subordinate Voting Shares issued in connection with the distribution were converted from already outstanding Multiple Voting Shares and Super Voting Shares, this transaction did not change the number of the Issuer's issued and outstanding shares on an as-converted basis. These Issuer shares were previously held by RCP23, LLC and GTI II, LLC and are now held by the members of those entities in accordance with their respective operating agreements.
Following such distributions, the Acquiror, together with his joint actors, holds beneficial ownership or control or direction over 238,059 Super Voting Shares, which represent 61.3% of the class, 49,448 Multiple Voting Shares, which represent 39.0% of the class, and 126,493 Subordinate Voting Shares, which represent less than 0.1% of the class. Each Super Voting Share carries 1,000 votes and is convertible into one Multiple Voting Share and each Multiple Voting Share carries 100 votes and is convertible into 100 Subordinate Voting Shares (each of which carries one vote).
