Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - March 29, 2021) -  1246773 B.C. Ltd. ("773") and 2311548 Alberta Ltd.

The net proceeds of the Private Placement will be placed into escrow and released to TargetCo subject to the satisfaction or waiver of a number of conditions including the completion of the Amalgamation. For further details concerning the Amalgamation, please see the news release dated March 12, 2021.

This news release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy securities in the United States, nor shall there be any sale of these securities in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.
