On closing of the Transaction (and after giving effect to the consolidation and the financing referenced below), there were 172,192,279 common shares in the capital of Flower One issued and outstanding (the “Flower One Shares“).

(c)

“Over the past five months, Flower One has been actively managing the conversion and additional building enhancements to the largest commercial scale greenhouse in the state of Nevada,” said Ken Villazor, CEO of Flower One Holdings Inc..”We share the excitement of our shareholders and employees.  Our state-of-art facility will provide 400,000 square feet of cannabis cultivation and 55,000 square feet of high tech processing, packaging and extraction making it the largest facility of its kind in Nevada. With our commercial scale, automation and technology, Flower One is positioned very well to be the preferred partner for major cannabis consumer brands looking to strategically enter what we believe is the most lucrative cannabis market in the United States.”

Flower One expects to launch a corporate website concurrent with its commencement of trading on the CSE.

Private Placement Financing

Prior to the completion of the Transaction, CNX completed private placement offerings of common shares and subscription receipts for aggregate gross proceeds of C$57.4 million (collectively, the “Offering“), which included a private placement of Class A common shares (the “Common Shares“) and subscription receipts (the “Subscription Receipts“) at an issue price of C$2.00 or US$1.50 per Common Share and US$1.50 per Subscription Receipt. The proceeds from the Subscription Receipts, less certain expenses, were placed into escrow on completion of the Subscription Receipt offering.  Upon closing of the Transaction, each Subscription Receipt was converted on a one-on-one basis into a total of 6,550,867 Common Shares.  The escrowed proceeds from the sale of the Subscription Receipts, less the commission of the agents and certain fees and expenses, have been released from escrow to Flower One. Eight Capital, with a syndicate that included Industrial Alliance Securities Inc., acted as agents to CNX in connection with the Offering of Subscription Receipts.

Flower One intends to deploy the proceeds of the Offering to:

  1. complete the acquisition of a twelve acre site with a nine acre greenhouse in Nevada; and
