(“Tilray”) (NASDAQ: TLRY) and its wholly owned subsidiary High Park Holdings Ltd. (“High Park”) providing for a $4.5 million cross investment between Tilray and Inner Spirit.

The Investment Agreement provides for a $2.25 million investment by Tilray in exchange for the issuance of Inner Spirit common shares, based on the 10 day volume-weighted average price of the Company’s common shares for the 10 day period ended on the business day prior to the initial closing date (the “First Tranche”). The First Tranche is expected to close in early December 2018, subject to satisfaction of certain closing conditions. In addition, on the third business day following the date which is six months after closing of the First Tranche, subject to certain conditions in favour of each party, Tilray and Inner Spirit will exchange common shares valued at an additional $2.25 million based on the 10 day volume-weighted average price of each company’s shares at the time of issuance.


In connection with the Investment Agreement, Inner Spirit and High Park have entered into a collaboration agreement (the “Collaboration Agreement”) providing for, among other things, ongoing collaboration between the two companies in the sale and distribution of High Park cannabis products through permissible regulatory channels, in accordance with applicable law.

“We are focused on providing the best retail experience for consumers at our branded Spiritleaf cannabis stores. Partnering with High Park is an exciting opportunity for us to showcase the amazing brand portfolio that High Park has secured and created for the cannabis market. It will allow customers at our Spiritleaf outlets to have access to one of the strongest and most diverse brand selections available in the marketplace,” said Darren Bondar, President and CEO of Inner Spirit.

High Park has also agreed to make a $250,000 charitable contribution over five years to the Company’s Spirit Fund (www.spiritfund.ca). The Spirit Fund is a community engagement program which aims to plant and grow deep roots in the community with three primary goals — to educate, support and inspire. High Park’s commitment will be designated to green initiatives such as park enhancement projects.
